But for millions of women living with skin conditions across the UK, adult acne can plague sufferers well into their thirties and beyond, taking a physical and emotional toll that goes way beyond skin-deep blemishes.
The answer could be close at hand though, thanks to the development of a new supplement acne treatment that promises to banish spots and reveal a beautiful complexion within as little as eight weeks.
Melbourne Cosmetic Acupuncturist, Dr Vivian Tam, is the brains behind a ‘miracle’ tablet that claims to keep unruly pimples under control.
“I suffered from acne as a teenager and went through the typical pubescent frustrations with my skin,” she told FEMAIL.
“These skin issues bothered me all the way into my 20’s with no luck in finding a real, long term solution to my pimply problems.”
As anyone who’s suffered with persistent acne – and the resulting cash drain – will have discovered, the market is swamped with treatments claiming to eradicate your breakouts for good.
But Tam noticed a gap in the market for skincare based on the core principles of Chinese Herbal Medicine, prompting her to develop a product that works to remove heat and toxicity from the body: Zilch.
By utilising the healing properties inherent in herbal medicine, Zilch works to remedy acne troubles “from the inside out”, reducing blood stagnation, swelling, inflammation and build-up of toxicity to promote healthier skin, and that radiant glow we all crave.
Tam claims that Zilch customers should notice a reduction in their acne within the first couple of weeks, with clearer skin appearing the longer the course of treatment continues.
It’s got the Instagram stamp of approval too, with many customers posting selfies showcasing a complete skincare transformation. Is it payday yet?
