For many, the journey to clear and blemish-free skin often involves navigating through a wide range of skincare products and treatments. With so many options to choose from, we thought it would be helpful to summarise the simplest ways that you can turn to natural strategies to reduce acne & breakouts, empowering you with holistic approaches that prioritise the well-being of your skin.
Mindful Skincare Routine
Gentle Cleansing: Start with a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser to remove excess oil and impurities without stripping the skin's natural moisture. Balance is key, as over-cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, leading to increased oil production and potential breakouts.
Hydration is Key
Drink Plenty of Water: Hydration is fundamental for overall skin health. Drinking an adequate amount of water helps flush toxins from the body and keeps the skin hydrated, reducing the likelihood of clogged pores.
Choose Hydrating Ingredients: Opt for skincare products containing shea butter, hyaluronic acid or aloe vera to maintain optimal skin hydration. Well-hydrated skin is less prone to excessive oil production.
Incorporate Superfoods: Include nutrient-rich superfoods in both your diet and your skincare! Leafy greens, berries, and fatty fish, these foods are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that support skin health from the inside out. Our Superfood Facial Cleansing Bar is formulated with Cucumber, Kale and Spinach which are rich with Omega-3 fatty acids that support a healthy, glowing complexion & soothe sensitive skin.
Limit Dairy and Sugar: Some studies suggest that high dairy and sugar intake may contribute to acne. Consider reducing your consumption of these foods and monitor whether it has an impact on your skin.
Our Anti-Breakout Facial Wet Mask is packed full of natural ingredients including charcoal, tea tree oil, melon extract & dead sea mineral mud. However, if you’re feeling more experimental when it comes to skincare, why not try some DIY face masks:
Turmeric and Honey Mask: Create a soothing face mask using natural ingredients like turmeric and honey. Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties can help calm irritated skin, while honey provides antibacterial benefits.
Clay Masks: Bentonite or kaolin clay masks can be effective in absorbing excess oil and unclogging pores. Use these masks once or twice a week to maintain clear skin.
Tea Tree Oil: Known for its antibacterial properties, tea tree oil can be diluted with a carrier oil and applied to blemishes as a spot treatment. Its natural antibacterial properties can help reduce acne-causing bacteria.
Lavender Oil: Lavender oil has soothing properties that can help calm redness and irritation. Mix a few drops with a carrier oil and apply it to the skin as a gentle, aromatic treatment.
Mind-Body Practices: Incorporate stress-reducing activities such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises into your routine. Chronic stress can contribute to hormonal imbalances that may lead to breakouts.
Adequate Sleep: Ensure you get enough restful sleep. Sleep is essential for overall well-being, and it plays a crucial role in skin regeneration and repair.
Sweat it Out: Regular physical activity promotes healthy circulation and helps flush out toxins through sweat. Just be sure to cleanse your skin post-exercise to prevent sweat from contributing to breakouts.
Reducing acne and breakouts naturally involves adopting a holistic approach that addresses the needs of your skin from the inside and out, and we have implemented this understanding into our Superfood Facial Cleansing Bar.
