Know Your skin

You Really Thought There Was One Type of Acne?

Are you someone who wakes up to the horror of acne, search on the internet and get confused in the zillion terms? Acne is like that non-identical twin who seems so similar but is so very different. And just like how you don’t treat the twins in a similar way, the same logic applies to acne too. They are all so very different. Different in the way they occur, the way they look, the way they can be treated, and the reasons for their arrival.

We know that acne especially on the face is just something you would want to get rid of ASAP. But the better you know about it, the better are the chances of it not occurring again and again. It’ll only take a few minutes for you to know about them but a lifetime of stress-free skincare.

We shall look at common questions like how do I know what type of acne I have? What does certain acne do to your skin? Which acne leaves marks and scars?

Oh, and very important, how you begin to treat those stubborn ones gently.
