Acne occurs when the hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It commonly appears mostly on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Acne lesions heal slowly and are annoyingly persistent. It may cause emotional distress and lead to scarring of the skin. The earlier you start treatment, the lower risk of lasting physical and emotional damage. The following are our clinical tips for acne treatment, you may want to try some of them:
Vitamin B2: supports a wide-spectrum of health benefits, it is essential for tissue repair. It helps to maintain healthy hair and skin. Many of our patients who had acne after about a month of taking vitamin B2 100mg daily were acne free.
