Skincare & Aesthetics Trends for 2017 by Dr Stefanie Williams

Trend 1: ‘LESS IS MORE’ with regards to non-surgical treatments. A strong trend for this year is to have regular, on-going small ‘tweakments’ rather than overdoing it with too many drastic corrections.

Exercise aggravates my breakouts – what can I do?

Yes, exercise with sweating and friction may aggravate acne in susceptible people, especially on shoulders, back and chest.

However, for maximum benefit there are a few things to consider. Here at Eudelo I occasionally see people who are passionate long distance runners.
