My sister is 27, turning 28 this year. We are pretty close so I am able to ask her why she thinks her skin is flaring up without being too rude. (although I know it hurts her feelings talking about it). I feel horrible, I don't want her dealing with acne still when she's 40 or something. I know she hates it and wants to get rid of it. She has been to a dermatologist a few years back and i have just said to her maybe its time to revisit them. They put her on a pill and gave her some kind of lotion but she said the lotion was a bit strong and burned her skin so to speak.. and she hates being on the pill because she's afraid it will stuff up trying to having kids one day.
I'm about to put her onto the same skincare i use :jurlique. She said she's tried it before and it didn't work, but I'd like to monitor her usage / make sure she's doing it twice a day. And i've heard tea tree oil is helpful so might get her to do that as well seeing as they are both natural products.
Any tips / suggestions for her will be appreicated. Am going to do one of those basic diets as well and slowly introduce other foods to see if her diet is the problem.
