It is fine to eat chocolate in moderation it will not upset your skin.
Ensure that you maintain your skincare routine.
Use a cleanser suitable for your skin type morning and evening.
Follow with a moisturiser that has good SPF coverage (minimum 30+) during the day, as the weather is still quite warm, and the UV index very rarely drops under 3. It is recommended to wear sunblock whenever the UV index is 3 or above. Combining your moisturiser and SPF helps to minimise the number of products you use and simplifies your routine.
Dr Jo-Ann See headlined Mamamia’s podcast on adult acne.
With Clean Up Australia on 6th March, why not use the opportunity to a clean-up of your skin care and make-up. Products for our skin generally stay fresh for between 6 & 12 months from opening. Many of us will have make-up, sunscreen and other skincare products that are getting old due to less use over the last couple of years because we worked from home and socialised less. Take the time over the next week to throw out the products that haven’t been purchased and opened recently and refresh your cupboard and routine with some new products.
Dr See recently spoke to Lisa Ham from the Sydney Morning Hearld about the effects of the Covid pandemic on your skin.
