Impact of Covid-19 on skincare and beauty

Staying at home has meant not wearing as much make-up as usual, but we have found that the following factors have contributed to the impact of our skin care: Lack of vitamin D due to poor natural sunlight outdoors has caused our skin to become even more prone to acne than usual. A recent study found that people with acne have lower levels of vitamin D than those without acne.

Using Like It On Top for Adult Acne

  People associate acne prone skin with teenagers. Acne is very common in teenagers and younger adults. About 95% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent.

Tips from a Skincare Specialist

We spoke to Cherelle, Skincare Specialist and Founder of Le’Skin Consultancy, who shared her tips on how to care for your skin.   Do not pick your skin! She says "I would suggest to limit how much you touch your face as your hands carry so much bacteria and dirt."
