Sick of blemish prone skin with no end in sight? Then we can help.
There are so many solutions and potions to help cure acne and prevent skin breakouts that sometimes you can be bombarded with information, advice and products which can be overwhelming.
So where do you start? Our advice is – no matter what products you decide to use, ensure they’re suitable for your skin and do what works best for you.
To give you a head start, we’ve created a guide to help you make your very own skincare regime for blemish prone skin.
Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse!
Giving your skin a thorough cleanse after a long day can work wonders. Dirt and excess oils can build up and become a breeding ground for bacteria and clogged pores if not removed.
Cleansing twice a day is guaranteed to give your skin the fresh treatment it needs. It will clear skin and kill the bacteria that causes blemishes and breakouts. And, if you’re feeling really adventurous, why not try a double cleanse?
Scrub your troubles away
After you’ve given your skin a good cleanse, give your skin a gentle but thorough exfoliate two or three times a week. This will help to do any damage-control for acne-enhancing bacteria waiting to enter your pores, which was missed in your cleanse.
Hydrate & Moisturise
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE! Keeping your skin full of good moisture will ensure skin is clear, nourished and not dry. Find yourself an oil-free or fragrance-free moisturiser, which will help to support your cleansing and exfoliation, without making skin greasy.
Moisturise before you go to bed and always before you apply make-up, to give your skin some additional protection.
Oils & Serums
If you’re suffering with severe acne or want to target specific areas of your face, you can also apply acne specific serums, oils or creams which can enhance treatment to the troubled areas on your skin. Many skincare ranges offer these, but it could be worth speaking to your doctor or pharmacist first to ensure you’re using the best product for your skin.
Even after you’ve cleansed, scrubbed, nourished and targeted blemishes and acne, skin sometimes needs more of a boost to kick it into gear and really give your skin the deep treatment it needs. A face mask is a great way to achieve this and our Anti-Blemish Mud Mask does just the job.
Filled with Green Clay, Willow Bark and Superfruit Blueberry, the face mask helps to cleanse the skin by drawing out impurities and clearing pores, revealing revitalised skin. Use weekly for maximum benefit or twice weekly if you have particularly greasy skin.
Sticking to this regime should help to clear those pesky blemishes and annoying breakouts once and for all.
