Look Magazine examines how the trend for contouring could be affecting your skin in a feature which made the cover, asking ‘Is Kim K ruining our skin?’.
Writer Chloe Burcham asks:

Heavy creams and contour products can lead to congested skin – especially on the tops of cheeks and around the cheekbone area.

Skin that’s healthier from within will always look better under makeup.
If you already suffer from acne, as well as irritating the skin, your makeup could be highlighting the problem, making any raised blemishes or bumps seem more prominent.
There are now laser treatments available which actually work to destroy the acne-causing bacteria and also promote healing.
Cosmedics’ Beauty Salon now offers the very latest laser acne treatment – ClearSkinTM , a system which uses the Advanced Harmony XL Pro Laser
The ClearSkinTM laser treatment works to destroy the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue. In addition, the ClearSkinTM treatment promotes skin healing, helping the skin to become clearer, healthier and more resilient.
ClearSkinTM is highly effective and can be used on mild, moderate and even severe acne. Patients can expect an average 80% acne clearance and lasting results after a course of treatment.
