Can it be used everyday and can it suit sensitive skin individuals?


Hi Riz,

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the human sebaceous follicle and is a common dermatologic condition. Our genetic disposition can trigger inflammation and oil production, influencing a bacterium called Proprionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) to be produced.

P. acnes uses sebum as an energy source, causing the breakdown of sebum by the bacterium, and results in inflammation.

Acne is a medical condition, and there is no ‘natural way’ to keep it at bay. Still, mild acne can be controlled with antibacterial cleansers such Miel Honey™ Cleanser or a natural emulsifier like Le Lait™ Milk Cleanser to take away bacteria, grim and unwanted debris off your skin.

A diet rich in high glycemic index foods and milk proteins can also trigger acne. Though there are many underlying causes of acne, laying off such food can contribute to a healthier skin. For those who suffer a persistent flare of acne, it is recommended to visit a dermatologist early to prevent complications such as skin infections or acne scarring.
