Acne During the Holidays
Is it stress, all the chocolate, too much alcohol, too little sleep? Or all of the above? Hard to tell.
If you are having a pretty severe holiday breakout, topical creams and gels aren’t going to cut it; they can take weeks to work. Instead, call your doctor and get a prescription of an antibiotic to use for a week or two (and then take your probiotics to help restore your healthy biogens). Your acne will clear up much faster.
Or, if you have a few bigger cysts, call your dermatologist and ask to be worked in for a cyst injection (works quickly).
A calming facial or masque may help as well and sleep never hurts!
