“Teen acne is usually triggered by an increase in hormone levels, which sends oil production into overdrive. It is estimated over 80% of teenagers suffer from some form of breakout or severe acne. To help prevent any long-term damage focus on a regular routine of effective deep pore cleansing (a build up of oil and dead skin cells creates the perfect environment for acne and clogged pores to flourish); avoid using skin aggravating ingredients that weaken the skin’s protective barrier function and include a non-abrasive exfoliation system that both clarifies clogged pores and stimulates cell production. I formulated our highly effective exfoliating fluid Dermabrasive Gel for highly sensitive skin (so ideal for teenage skin) as its anti-inflammatory complex relieves irritations and soothes the skin, whilst simultaneously purifying and balancing the skin. It is important to remember skin has a memory so how you handle acne in your teens can have a lasting effect.
For more severe cases a gentle Purifying Facial Treatments can help maintain the skin’s from impurities and excess oil as well as protect it from bacteria.”

QMS PRODUCTS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUNG, PROBLEMATIC SKIN CONDITIONS
It is important for young people to get into a routine in order to protect their skin and keep it healthy. A simple skin care routine should include cleansing, toning, exfoliation and moisturizing. For a more intensive effect to compliment topical treatment, a daily supplement for healthy skin hair and nails is also recommended.
Cleansing & Toning
Deep Cleansing & Freshening Tonic:
The skin has an acid mantle which acts as a protective layer against harmful bacterial infections. These bacterial infections lead to pimples and can lead to post acne scarring if the skin’s acid mantle is broken down.
Deep Cleansing & Freshening Tonic boosts the skin’s own protective functions by boosting the skin’s acid mantle.
Regular exfoliation with a natural fruit acid is the preferred form of exfoliation. The acidic formulation kills bacteria and at the same time treats and prevents pimples and blackheads. Pores are refined and the complexion looks light and bright. Post acne scarring is effectively treated and prevented.
Repair 3 Complex:
As an oil in water emulsion, this light textured moisturizer is effective in reducing irritations while at the same time providing moisture to the skin. The skin’s protective functions are made stronger against harmful influences that can aggravate acne prone skin and thus prevents post acne scarring.
Specifically designed to complement QMS topical treatment, Intravital Plus aids in inflamed skin conditions and helps to treat scarring on a deeper level in the skin. By taking 1 capsule in the mornings and one in the afternoon, it ensures an overall better skin quality. Intravital contains all necessary Vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants to ensure maximum efficacy and proper functioning of the skin.
NB: Severe conditions of acne should be treated by a medical professional. Cosmetic products can be combined to minimize the side effects of medications as well as keep the skin well protected to prevent scarring.
