Are you struggling with Cystic Acne?

Cystic Acne is large, painful cysts/bumps that are deep under the skin and can appear on the face, back and chest. Cystic Acne is not like a “normal breakout”, and can hang around for days or weeks. It won’t be solved with just washing your face!

It can be caused by a multitude of factors including dead skin cells, bacteria and sebum being trapped under the skin as well as hormone imbalances and diet.

One of the most important things to remember with Cystic Acne is that you want to avoid stripping the skin with harsh products that over clean, over stimulate and dry out the skin as this can lead to aggravating the skin and escalating the problem to make it worse.

Rapid Fire Tips:

- Avoid wearing makeup everyday as it can suffocate the skin and clog the pores. Try to let your skin breathe as much as possible! If you have to wear makeup, look for products that are non-comedogenic, as they are designed not to clog the pores. Make sure to regularly clean your makeup brushes and tools and NEVER sleep in your makeup.

- Avoid touching your skin! More often than not we will have bacteria on our hands and touching and picking at your skin will only transfer more bacteria to the area and cause infection and inflammation.

- Be gentle with your skin when washing your face, don’t scrub aggressively.

- Focus on eating a balanced diet including apples (with skin), oily fish, dark green vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, zucchini) and avoid foods with high salt content, processed foods, fried foods.


Remember to be consistent with your skincare products and give them time to work! There is no instant cure and constantly changing products and over using exfoliants and peels can aggravate and inflame your skin even more so.

It is best to go in with a mindset of gently cleansing, soothing, hydrating and treating this skin condition.
