Acne prone skin can be caused by excessive production of sebum, which leads to clogged pores, blackheads, whiteheads, and other inflammatory issues.
If your skin is acne prone, know you’re far from alone. So many people are out there dealing with acne issues, and acne isn’t just a problem for teens. Acne can pop up for a variety of reasons, from stress, to hormonal cycles, to allergic reactions. It can result in inflammation, irritated skin, and redness. We’re here with helpful suggestions and hardworking products to help keep your breakouts at bay.
Keep it Clean
If you have acne prone skin, then it’s important to keep it clean and address your skin’s specific needs. That means regular, gentle cleansing and a skincare routine involving products with ingredients that can effectively tackle inflammation and irritation. Our Skin + Hair Refining Vitamin C Cleanser is a gentle way to pamper your face, scalp, and hair, powered with matricaria flower extract, a natural, anti-inflammatory ingredient.
Dealing with acne prone skin requires restraint – try to minimize touching and picking at inflammation. Picking your face helps to encourage acne, so avoid touching your face to decrease or eliminate the spread of bacteria that can lead to further breakouts.
Try to Find a Balance
Balancing your skin’s barrier can help to stop the cycle of breakouts and hyperpigmentation in its tracks. It’s important to develop a skincare regimen that addresses your needs. Try to use an effective yet gentle cleanser regularly to minimize excessive sebum and bacteria, before using topical acne-fighting ingredients to lock in beneficial ingredients and fight pimples. Our Skin + Hair Collagen & Rice Water Toner offers moisture from hyaluronic acid, plus coconut water and aloe leaf juice to repair dead cells.
In terms of ingredients, acne prone skin can benefit especially from antiseptic, anti-inflammatory agents like Vitamin C loaded orange peel oil. Hyaluronic acid offers myriad skin improving benefits, expediting wound healing, and sealing in hydration. Aloe leaf juice will help to reduce the itching and redness that acne prone skin can bring. A gentle clay mask can help to gently absorb excess sebum from your T-zone without drying it out.
