From baby eczema to teenage acne, we’ve got all the best clinics in town for healthy skincare
With the constant imbalance between Hong Kong’s hot and cold, wet and dry weather, we understand the struggles of not only finding the perfect outfit but also finding the perfect solution to keeping your little one’s skin healthy. Experts say that many children experience similar skin conditions as adults but since children have a higher sensitivity, various conditions and infection risks are more prevalent in younger children. They recommend special care and early treatments which will take into account children’s growing needs and prevent later skin conditions. But don’t worry mamas, we’re already one step ahead with this round up. We’ve listed everything from dermatological centres, paediatrician clinics, eczema and acne specialists and naturopathic options as well.
