The Perfect Everyday Acne Routine!
Posted on July 02 2020
Acne is such a pain.....literally and figuratively. Acne can be so physically painful, but it can also really effect your self-esteem. An everyday acne routine doesn't have to be 15 steps. Today, we are going to give you a routine that will show you results, and in only 6 steps!
Let’s get to it...
Step 1: Cleanse
Daily cleansing in the morning and night is ESSENTIAL to fighting acne causing bacteria! We offer several face soaps that would work for this, but there are two that are designed to fight acne.
This soap is made with an effective blend of hydrating, antioxidant-rich, and nourishing oils ideal for the face. The pure charcoal powder in the soap is great to remove dead skin and provide nutrients to your face (and body if you choose) that it looses throughout the day. Charcoal is known to absorb toxins, dirt, oil, and grime, and is designed for oily, acne prone skin.
Matcha is the purest form of green tea, and it does wonders for the skin. Matcha is full of antioxidants that restore the skin and dose it with anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. This soap is also made with raw FL honey as another form of anti-inflammatory and also anti-bacterial. The mix of both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial is ideal for keeping acne away, and fighting the inflammation caused by acne already on the skin.
Step 2: Exfoliation
Exfoliation is a great next step to take in your acne fighting routine! Keep in mind that you should only exfoliate 2-3x per week and you should NEVER exfoliate over open breakouts. You may ask yourself, if I can't exfoliate over breakouts, then how is this helping my acne? Well, think of it more as a preventative measure for future breakouts. Let's talk about two of our scrubs that would be perfect for you!
The Spirulina Scrub is a great one to help balance your pH levels and to fight acne causing bacteria. This scrub is so beneficial that we have an entire blog post all about it! To read more about the benefits of the Spirulina Scrub click here!
The ingredients chosen in this salt scrub were specifically chosen to renew skin, bringing your most beautiful skin forward and getting rid of any dry, dead and drab skin that can often linger. We also use two types of sea salt to maximize mineral restoration into the skin - a unique feature of this scrub. This scrub will help hydrate & detox the skin while also correcting acne & scarring.
Step 3: Masks
Face masks can make such a huge difference in your skin. Our masks are clay based, which can really help to detox the skin. However, just like scrubs, face masks are something that should only be used a few times a week. We offer three different masks, and two of them are perfect to fight acne.
This mask is blended with crushed calendula flowers, so you get a mild exfoliant as you're applying the mask. As the mask hardens on your skin, the dead sea clay will naturally dry up excess oils in pores and detox impurities from the skin. This is a great mask for acne, cystic acne, blackheads and clogged pores.
This bright green face mask is an antioxidant-rich, detoxifying, & hydrating mask that will rejuvenate and brighten the skin. Blended with a short yet powerful list of ingredients, you will unclog your pores while supplying the skin with ridiculous amounts of pure antioxidants from the matcha green tea, minerals from the sea clay, and detoxifying absorption from the bentonite clay. The calendula petals reduce inflammation to allow the clays to do their best job, plus have an amazing reputation for healing skin.
Step 4: Toning Mist
Ahhh nothing like the spray of a refreshing facial mist. And, what's even better than that is that this mist can help fight your acne too!
Rehydrate and refresh your face with this anti-oxidant rich, balancing mist made with the detoxifying apple cider vinegar. The relaxing scent of Lavender and Rose is the perfect addition to your evening routine. With aloe juice as the main ingredient, the gentle and sensitive skin on your face will surely thank you for helping restore moisture and supplementing the skin's needs. Think of this as a preventative step to help with clogged pores and oily skin. This will help balance your skins pH, and it helps to prevent acne.
Step 5: Treatments/Serums
Treatments and serums are a great addition to your routine. From a spot treatment to help fight current breakouts, to repair serums to help fix the damage breakouts can leave on your skin, serums are a great way to customize your skin's needs at that moment without much effort. Here is what we suggest:
This acne spot treatment is designed for reducing current acne, and preventing future acne. Ingredients that are unique to skin care, like Tamanu Oil which is known to heal and repair acne while alleviating acne pains, and manuka oil which fights bacteria and reduces inflammation, are used in this Acne Spot Treatment. The combination of all ingredients not only helps fight acne, but it also corrects skin and prepares it for an acne-free glow.
If you're struggling from acne scarring, skin conditions, or leftover damage from a recent event, this product is your go-to. As one of our top selling products, this Face Repair Serum has worked on so many people that it has become a "word of mouth" phenomenon. Use two to three drops at night of this amazing, highly concentrated oil to rejuvenate and refresh your face, targeting troubled areas that are trying to recover.
Step 6: Moisturize
With acne often comes oily skin, and with that can also come a fear of moisturizer. But did you know that not moisturizing can actually make your skin more oily? Yep, it's true. If you don't moisturize regularly your skin will try to overcompensate for its loss of hydration by producing more oil. Introducing a natural and highly effective moisturizer into your routine actually teaches your skin to stop producing oils in excess, and over time helps eliminate oily skin.
Both face moisturizers we offer are best sellers, but do have some differences. You can read more below to determine which one is going to make the most impact for your needs.
This creme is a great daily face moisturizer and can be used either morning, night, or both! This is great for those with troubled, irritated or sensitive skin, or even those that want an all natural regimen to "save face". This is an anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, UV-B Ray protector and a hydrating astringent... not to mention it protects your skin of free radicals (harmful environmental factors that destroy skin).
This moisturizer is perfect if your wanting something a little lighter on the skin. Made with almost 25% rosewater hydrosol (a steam distilled rosewater from organic rose petals that doesn't require preservatives), this face moisturizer provides hydrating ingredients that have tons of benefits. It is made with unique ingredients that are so rare and exotic to skin care, like Babassu Oil, Camelina Oil & Emu oil. They don’t clog pores, and they focus on restoring skin.
As you can see, a great acne routine doesn't have to take all day, or be excessive in purchasing products. Also, some of these steps only have to be done a few times per week, so on the other days your routine is even shorter!
With these 6 simple steps, you'll be able to fight your current acne breakouts, prevent future ones from happening, and feel your absolute best knowing your skin looks clear and vibrant!
