What is the best way to clear up acne or rough, congested skin? Red Lotus in Portland, OR tells you.
What is the best way to clear up acne or rough, congested skin? "Have a series of skin peels or light chemical peels," says Patricia Barnett, master aesthetician at Red Lotus skin salon in Beaverton, Oregon. "Exfoliation is the most important thing you can do to start clearing you skin up. Excess skin, oil and dirt are what is clogging your pores and keeping the P acnis bacteria overgrowing. Using peels to thin the skin allows the congestion to dissolve and the skin clears up and soothes out. Usually 3 to 6 peels does the trick with home care."
