Red blotchy skin for no apparent reason.
The reason why acne is so hard to treat is because of 2 main reasons:
1. Most people with acne have oily skin so they are always wanting to dry the oiliness which only leads to more blocked pores and acne.
2. Their focus is always on the topical and really the acneic skin is coming from a disruption to the inner health.
Dr Irene Prantalos (Chinese Medicine) knows too well the challenges around managing a skin condition. Being covered with psoriasis from the age of 16 meant she exhausted all options until Chinese Medicine became her last resort. Thankfully within 2 months the skin cleared and Dr Irene decided to study and gained a double degree in Chinese Medicine and Human Biology.
Chinese Medicine worked for her and has a great effect on her patients with acne, as the focus is on reducing the inflammation in the skin, NOT suppressing the immune system. Supressing the Immune system will only cause side effects in the body that lead to future flare ups and more distress and pain.
Each person's journey is unique and we have all been on the roller coaster of wellness and illness.
1. Keep managing your skin issues topically with 100% natural products tailored for inflamed acneic skin.
2. Get to the bottom of the acne with one-on-one consultations with Dr Irene. These are available both in clinic and via Zoom or phone consults.

Patient case: One – on – one consults with Dr Irene“Irene I am so surprised how quickly my skin has improved. I’ve been struggling with acne and eczema on my face for years. I’m trying to stick to all the dietary recommendations but even with not being 100% I have noticed my skin is less red, not as itchy and the bumpiness is gone.”
