Ole Henriksen’s One-Step Treatment for Acne and Pimples
When asked for his best advice on curing acne and pimples, Mr Henriksen had a simple answer.
“Diet, diet, diet.” he told Daily Mail Australia.
The esthetician, 71, described acne as a “today’s skin disease” that could be linked to the widespread availability of sugar-spiced, processed foods.
He advises drastically reducing your sugar intake and washing your face with a muslin cloth dipped in warm water and 10 to 15 drops of eucalyptus and tea tree oil.
“That in itself will clear the skin and disinfect pimples,” he said.
Mr Henriksen said that cracked skin with active pimples should never be treated with exfoliants or products that spread bacteria.
“I consider it an honor to have worked with so many celebrities – the list is a mile long,” he said.
In August, he received the coveted seal of approval from Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, who gushed about his West Hollywood spa on social media.
‘Just had the most amazing facial ever! I’ve been coming here for 30 years and it’s never been better,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories.
Days earlier, the 65-year-old “momager” shared her gratitude for a lavish gift basket she received from the skincare king herself, telling her 42.7 million followers she is a “longtime fan” of his brand.
“I’ve loved this brand and Ole for decades. Just fantastic!!!’ she wrote.
