Your best allies to fight against acne

Everything you need to know to treat acne

The main cause for acne to appear is the obstruction of skin pores. This obstruction can be caused by excessive production of sebum. This hyperproduction may be caused by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, menstruation, stress, or excessive sweating. Thus, if there is an excess of sebum and too many dead skin cells, pores become clogged and acne appears.

For this reason, the first thing to do is to avoid touching your face. It's tempting to touch your pimples and blackheads, but you'll only make it worse. Our skin will generate more sebum and cause more acne. In addition, the grease in our hands won’t do our face any good.

Choose non-comedogenic, astringent and antibacterial products that don’t block your pores, to let your skin breathe naturally.

In order to deal with acne is essential to have a good skincare routine. If you have severe or very severe acne the best option is to go to a dermatologist.

Here is the freshly routine you should follow to moisturise and smoothen your skin. You can say goodbye to blemishes, open pores and unwanted shines with these simple and effective tips.

Anti-Acne Beauty Routine

1- Remove impurities and close the pores. You must cleanse your face twice a day, morning and night. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, you should keep your skin clean in order to prevent pores from clogging. You should also cleanse your skin after doing sport or after excessive sweating. We recommend you to deeply cleanse your face with the Super Cleanser Trio. This pack contains the Fresh Green Micellar Water, the Rose Quartz Facial Cleanser, and the Lime Purifying Facial Toner, 3 essentials to remove residues and impurities from your skin, tonify it, and balance its PH. Try to cleanse your face as gently as you can. Rubbing your face vigorously will not make acne disappear faster but quite the opposite, it will irritate your skin favouring more imperfections to appear.

2- Hydration. Having oily skin does not mean you can skip this step. Use the Pacific Ocean Moisturising Gel to reduce sebum secretion, blemishes and inflammation. It is ideal to moisturise your skin, reduce imperfections and shine.

3- Natural exfoliation. Have you heard about the Blue Radiance Enzymatic Serum? It’s a natural exfoliating facial serum that extraordinarily renews skin from the first application, preventing pores from becoming clogged. It controls sebum secretion, treats acne, blackheads, open pores, blemishes and redness thanks to selected high-quality natural ingredients. It will become an essential before going to bed every night.

4- Sunscreen is the key for skins with acne tendency. It is essential to protect your skin from the sun all year round – especially during summer – but finding a sunscreen that suits the needs of your skin is not an easy task. If you do not make a good choice, you can clog your pores causing the appearance of pimples and imperfections. That is why you should look for a sunscreen that contains astringent products such as zinc oxide that prevents oil excess on your skin and regulates sebaceous secretion such as the Healthy Protection Facial Sunscreen.

As you can see, having smooth skin free from acne is not an impossible task. With the right routine, the right products, and perseverance following these steps you will see how your skin looks flawless.
