When first using prescription strength acne and anti-ageing treatments, many people can experience dryness, peeling, redness and stinging. This is a completely normal response as your skin adjusts to your new treatment.
Some simply tips on reducing irritation
- Apply a hydrating moisturiser 10 minutes before your Software treatment, creating a "buffer" between it and your skin. This allowed your treatment to more slowly absorb into your skin, and can help reduce side effects.
- Pare back your skincare routine entirely for the first 6-8 weeks, to simply include a gentle cleanser to wash your face, a hydrating, non-comedogenic moisturiser, and sun protection with SPF30 or 50+.
- Reduce how often you are applying your treatment.
Remember, these side effects will go away in time as your skin adjusts to your new treatment. If you are still concerned, or if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
