How to get rid of acne

Let’s talk spots! June is acne awareness month, so it’s the perfect time to talk about how to get rid of acne. With acne-prone skin myself, I know what a negative impact acne can have on your life and your self-confidence.

Some people think acne is just a teenage issue, but acne affects men and women of all ages. For women, hormonal changes like pregnancy and menopause can trigger acne. Women can suddenly find themselves struggling with how to get rid of spots all over again – or even for the first time.

The good news is that there is help at hand to get rid of acne

The right products, treatments, diet and lifestyle changes can make all the difference.

First up – Products

The Alumier Clarifying Collection is a great place to start getting rid of acne. It includes:

  • AlumierMD Calming Collection of skincare products for acneAcne Clarifying Cleanser – a gentle yet seriously effective pH-balanced acne cleanser that deep-cleans pores and calms skin for a clearer complexion.
  • Acne Balancing Serum – with innovative encapsulated salicylic acid technology that provides a slow even release into the skin, minimising irritation while extending effectiveness.
  • HydraClarite – an ultra-light, antioxidant-rich facial lotion specially formulated for oily and blemish-prone skin.

If you can, add in the Enzymatic Peel. It’s a highly effective exfoliant that combines 10% lactic acid with fruit enzymes to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote skin renewal, minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discolouration. Aloe vera extract calms the skin, while sodium hyaluronate and vitamin B5 hydrate and soften skin for a supple and radiant complexion.

Second up is treatments

Chemical peelPure chemical peels work fantastically well to improve the skin’s appearance, especially when the skin has been affected by acne. Adding LED colour therapy to the treatment gives a further boost to the skin and a lovely calming effect, which is particularly good if you suffer from acne.


Thirdly, it’s about drinking enough water

Simple but true. Don’t underestimate the power of the clear stuff! Drinking enough water and staying hydrated helps your body flush out toxins that may clog your pores and cause acne. It can also help maintain healthy skin cell rejuvenation and collagen production, aiding acne healing and reducing inflammation from acne pimples and scarring.

Fourth, think supplements

Photo Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Accumax and Skin Omegas supplementsThere are two key supplements that I have seen make a real difference in getting rid of acne are from Advanced Nutrition Programme.

Skin Accumax™ is an award-winning, patented skin supplement for problem skin, recognised by thousands worldwide. Using vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and phytonutrients, it works from the inside out to support problem skin and clarify your complexion.

SKIN OMEGAS+ are also brilliant as they act as an internal moisturiser for the skin, nourishing your skin and giving it a more luminous appearance.

Last but not least … have patience

Give your body time. Perfect skin doesn’t happen overnight. There are no miracle cures. Commit to using the right products, looking after your body by staying hydrated and taking the right supplements and then adding the right treatments, and you might be surprised by just how good the results can be.
