Combination Acne is both Inflamed and Non-Inflamed Acne.
When BOTH inflamed breakouts AND non-inflamed congestion occur together, it is called Combination Acne. This type of acne is the MOST STUBBORN in that it often requires a combination of strategies to get clear.
Properly matched products that are safe and made for acne-prone skin.
Needs regular facials to help extract the buildup under the skin. Products must continue to be well matched and the recommended skin care routine is crucial.
Additionally working with a Naturopath, Eastern Medicine Practitioner, or Dietician (possibly a combination of these practitioners) to help the systemic stressors including, hormones, allergies, and stress to be addressed. These specialists will help each client reduce systemic inflammatory imbalances through dietary changes, supplements, or treatments like Acupuncture or Acupressure.
Extra, extra patience required, as it often it takes 8-12 months to get skin clear. Once it is, it proves to be worth the effort AND is often fairly easy to maintain.
