Now that you know what acne-prone skin is, and why blemishes occur, let’s learn how to tackle these pesky spots, reduce their appearance and help to prevent them once and for all!
GRAB A FACIAL SCRUB
Regardless of the types of pimples or blemishes you’re dealing with, the first step to skin restoration is to use a facial scrub. The Sugar Scrubs Purifying Face Scrub is perfect for deep exfoliation, reduction of blackheads and blemishes, and skin purification. This scrub combines three fine sugars with kiwi seeds to instantly reveal a clearer complexion and smooth, baby-soft skin. When exfoliating, be sure to listen to your skin! Some people can handle everyday exfoliators, whilst others with sensitive skin may need to limit them to once or twice a week.
USE PRODUCTS WITH BENZOYL PEROXIDE
Benzoyl peroxide works as an antibacterial treatment to get rid of blemishes. It’s often found in creams, gels and cleansers—so get your hands on one of these products to keep your skin in top form.
AVOID PICKING AT YOUR BLEMISHES
As hard as it may be, try not to touch your face too much when dealing with a blemish. This can cause bacteria to spread—which leads to more blemishes and prevents your current ones from going away.
GIVE YOUR SKIN CARE REGIMEN TIME
Whilst we may wish that one use of our skin care products would instantly fix our acne problems, your skin will require some time to adjust. It’s advised to allow your skin treatments 4-6 weeks to begin working. One product that we recommend adding to your regimen is the Pure Clay Marine Algae Anti-Blemish Face Mask. This mask combines three pure clays with the soothing properties of Marine Algae Extract (how cool!) to help clear blackheads and tighten pores. With regular use, your skin will become more purified, smoother and radiant.
BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR DERMATOLOGIST
Consulting with a certified dermatologist is never a bad idea. Your dermatologist will be able to explore what causes blemishes for you and offer advice on treatments and products that can assist in clearing your skin.
