What's the best way to get clear skin?

Blemish-prone skin may be caused by a number of factors, so it's important to establish the root cause before looking at skin-care products. Maybe your acne is because you're wearing face masks, or it could be the wrong type of makeup, not being hydrated enough, or perhaps hormones and an underlying condition. Once you've deciphered the cause, you can step up your skin care. Our advice would be to cleanse your skin with a gentle, very hydrating cleanser first. Don’t over-exfoliate with leave-on acid toners and serums. Instead, just exfoliate the dead skin cells with a gentle enzyme cleanser twice a week, and balance your skin with a facial toner. Then, add a hydrating serum such as hyaluronic acid and a moisturiser that isn't too oily. Also, look out for skin care that contains ingredients such as zinc oxide and tea tree oil, they help treat spots.

How can you get rid of blackheads on your nose?

We are not a fan of pore strips for getting rid of blackheads, and we wouldn't recommend DIY extraction tools, but here are some solutions. If you have a nose full of blackheads, the best thing is to go to a facialist when you can. Don't do strips – they won't work, and we would stay away from all of those aggressive things. Also, use an exfoliating cleanser. If you're looking for an additional fix, try a simple salicylic acid toner, which exfoliates deep inside the pore to break up oil, dirt, and dead skin cells which can lead to blackheads.

How can you get rid of forehead wrinkles in a way that does not involve needles?

Naturally, our skin's collagen and hyaluronic acid reserves – responsible for plump, supple skin – deplete as we age. But if you're looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles with skin care, hydration is key. Use hyaluronic acid-based products to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol is also a great ingredient for lines and wrinkles, but we are wary of the inflammatory effects, which can cause redness, sore skin, and flaking, and so we won’t always recommend it. If your skin is very reactive, it might be best to avoid retinol, but if you're interested in trying retinol products, start slow.
