Tips for oily and acne prone skin

Do you suffer from breakouts and/or oily/congested skin?

Do you feel like your skin is always greasy or congested? The kneejerk reaction is to intensify your cleansing and over-wash the skin. But, this is the opposite response to what is needed!

Your skin is actually in need of a gentle cleansing method. Skin care products that give you the illusion of “squeaky clean” skin, only provide you with a short term result, and cause significantly more damage to your skin in the long term. If you take a look at the ingredient list for these products, you will see things like spirit, acetone, detergents, alcohol, mint, and eucalyptus. All of these ingredients will leave your skin refreshed and oil free immediately after use, but will damage your lipid barrier and can serve as potential irritants that can trigger nerve irritation and lead to inflammation.

What does that mean for your skin?

Well, a damaged lipid barrier allows bacteria to easily access your sebaceous glands and thus produce even more oil. It becomes a vicious cycle!

What you really need is a consistent routine and a long term solution. The first step of which is adopting a gentle but effective cleansing routine, start with our Cleansing Balm and you will you see a significant improvement in the health and appearance of your skin!
