Even the best products and treatments are not 100% effective at eliminating breakouts. When acne lesions do appear, it is important to do the right thing to avoid long-lasting scarring or dark spots. Picking, squeezing or scratching at your acne not only pushes bacteria deeper into your follicle, it can also cause the follicle itself to burst. This makes it susceptible to secondary infection, scarring, and discoloration.
If you are not supposed to pop your pimples, what can you do? One of the best answers is simple – ice it! Holding an ice cube against your zits for just a couple minutes each day can help reduce swelling and make them go away faster. In order to make this even easier (and prevent you from dripping water all over yourself), Essence of L Medi Spa & Laser clinic is proud to announce that we are giving away Glow Ice Packs to all of our acne clients. Whether you have been participating in one of our programs for a while or you are just beginning, stop by to receive one of our handy ice packs absolutely free. With it, you will be able to treat your breakouts in a safe, simple, and chemical-free way.
In order to get the most out of your Glow Ice Pack (or your ice cube), try to ice your skin after you have cleaned it but before you have applied any lotions or serums. You can expect an immediate reduction in swelling and redness and you will increase the chances that your lesions will go away soon. Keep in mind that you don’t need to ice your acne in front of the mirror — you can just as easily hold an ice pack to your face for a minute or two while you watch tv, talk on the phone, or perform most household tasks.
Come stop by Essence of L Medi Spa and Laser Clinic, or make an order online and add the ice pack to your online shopping cart as a complementary bonus gift. Keep an eye out for our new Clear Skin Project Acne Manual for lots of skincare tips and tricks to get rid of those pesky breakouts. You will be sure to gain at least one tool you can add to your anti-acne arsenal.
