Prescription Retinoids? Combining Actives? Your Acne Questions Answered! Part 2

Actives confuse people.


No doubt. And that confusion is magnified in the context of acne, when if used incorrectly, skin breaks out more and gets irritated. It’s a real minefield.


So I thought I’d deep dive into your prescription products questions in today’s video to show you how I approach combining different anti-inflammatories and retinoids for best-in-class results.


I’ll also talk through when to use which anti-inflammatory agent and how to maintain your results for long-term happiness!


As access to the prescription category of skincare increases, I’m increasingly aware that there’s a lack of detailed advice surrounding their correct use. So hopefully, this video series combined with my Acne Cheatsheet will make it easier for you to move forward with your skin journey, getting you closer to Great Skin Days!
