Acne can rear its ugly head at any time and on any part of the body from back and chest to shoulders, bum and even scalp. Sleep deprivation, stress, unhealthy eating habits and a hectic lifestyle can all contribute to breakouts of spots and blemishes all over the body.
It’s officially summer in our part of the world, which means a massive increase in the levels of sweat-breaking, zit-inducing humidity. While the odd spot here and there can be annoying, (particularly in the summer months when we’re supposed to have beautifully sun-kissed, flawless complexions) but persistent, seasonal breakouts and full on “problem skin”can be truly traumatic for some people.
Problematic skin can be devastating for some people and there are many of us that spend many a waking hour worrying about how to improve it or at the very least, conceal it. This is when I thank the powers that be for makeup. It can have truly transformative effects, not only on a person’s appearance, but I would go as far as to say on their life too.
