It is important as with any big skin care issues that you see a skin care professional. A esthetician or dermatologist. It is also important to see how your diet is and water intake is. Remember what is going on outside is usually a reflection of what is going on inside the body. Also make sure you have a great skin care regiment because this is just a scrub and meant to only be used several times a week and not daily. So balance your nutrition, drink plenty of water, reduce the sugars, work out to detox the body, see a specialist and invest into a great skin care regiment. Including St Ives Apricot Scrub.
