“As it says in the report, acne is a medical condition that may sometimes require a medical solution,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Over-the-counter skin washes may be the first line of treatment for those who get pimples occasionally.”

One of the worst things to do to the skin is expose it to the sun. Depending on one's complexion, the effects of just a little sun even in winter can be problematic. Before exposure, the best prevention is sunscreen and keeping covered. The report suggests that once a burn has happened, use of vitamin E is a good first step. Take a liquid gel supplement tab and cut it in half. Then, rub the liquid over the area that is affected.

“Every day I tell my patients to stay out of the sun and when they can’t, to cover up and use sun block. But more than anything else in the article, I agree with the recommendation to quit smoking,” says Dr. Ourian. “Aside from the obvious health benefits, smoking will prematurely age the skin.”

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
