Back acne can be embarrassing especially during the summer when going to the beach or wanting to show off your shoulders. Pimples on your back originate from sweat and bacteria, which clogs your pores up. We recommend thoroughly cleaning this area with soap and water after workouts and before going to bed. It is also suggested to wear clothing made from natural fibres in order to let air flow and skin breathe. Furthermore, we would recommend you to carefully wash your back after washing your hair because of the possible effect of shampoo or conditioner chemicals that can lead to clogged pores.
Ingrown hairs are usually caused when shaving or waxing and make the hair fold back under the skin. One step in getting rid of them is to change razor more often, old razors can have collect bacteria, when shaving it will only encourage the hair to grow in the wrong direction. Using shaving gel can help decrease ingrown hairs and also make it less irritating after shaving.
Nevertheless, if you are still having problems with your ingrown hairs, we recommend trying laser hair removal in one of our clinics.
Upper lip hair
It can be frustrating to find that it's okay for men to have upper lip hair but isn't for women. As a matter of fact, if you ever notice facial hairs grow from out of nowhere, it is suggested to visit a doctor as it may for instance be caused by a hormonal condition such as polycystic ovary syndrome. However, it's not uncommon for women to develop facial hairs. To get rid of them we do recommend laser hair removal treatment for better results.
Sties are unfortunate little lumps that appear on the edge of your eyelid. They can be very painful but also embarrassing. To get rid of them, you can apply a warm compress to the eye every so often during the day. However, they normally disappear on their own. If this is unsuccessful after 48 hours, we highly recommend visiting your doctor.
If you want to discuss about any skin problems, you are more than welcome to book an appointment with one of our dermatologists who will offer advice on improving your skin.
