Clear skin directory
Clear skin depends on many factors, including lifestyle, environment and genetics. Sun exposure, smoking, hormones, poor diet or a genetic propensity for skin conditions like acne or allergies, can all compromise clear skin. Spots or blemishes usually occur where the skin has the most oil glands. The face, neck, chest, back and shoulders are commonly affected. Irritated skin can be caused by chemicals, over-washing, heavy make-up, tanning and greasy skin or hair products. Keeping hair off the face, using oil free products and keeping hands off your face may help keep skin clear. Your GP may also prescribe medication if these measures do not work or if the problem is severe.
