“I usually recommend you start with just one active for your acne, and that could be in a cleanser, it could be in a toner, it could be in a gel. But don’t overdo it.” (09:26) (Dr. Azi)
“Fungal acne is actually a natural yeast that lives on the skin. And, in certain conditions and with certain hormonal imbalances or microbiomes, that fungus can overgrow and get inside the pores.” (12:02) (Dr. Azi)
“And then other triggers would be stress and not sleeping, which certainly play a role. There’s a new variant of acne that is directly linked to stress and not sleeping, because that causes your cortisol hormone levels to go up. Cortisone is a big player for causing acne.” (15:39) (Dr. Brian)
“Sometimes it’s habits like that. If you’re trying all these things but you’re forgetting about basic hygiene, whether you talk on the phone, put the phone to your cheek, or text all the time and you wipe your face, those are all big factors.” (17:18) (Dr. Azi)
