Problem : Acne and Scarring
The purpose of Daydreams acne treatments is to quickly resolve sore, inflamed outbreaks, accelerate the healing process and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. Active acne vulgaris is a distressing condition that can plague men or women from adolescence to middle age. It scars both physically and psychologically. Adult or late onset acne is increasingly common with stress (sometimes referred to as career acne). Acne is essentially a hormone induced condition so a ‘cure’ may be difficult but what is obtainable is controlling the acne to comparitively fewer outbreaks, accelerating healing and avoiding cross infection.
