Acne, Oily Skin & Open Pores

Acne, Oily Skin & Open Pores 

The dreaded acne…. It's been there since our teens and it still manages to linger around until today. Why oh why? We’re here to explain the different types of acne and how its best managed. 
Oily Skin and Acne goes together. Open pores. Shiny complexion…. black/white heads… and pimples! If this sounds like you. Here’s the rundown of why its happening.
Sebum is always being produced on our skin to naturally moisturize it. Sometimes too much is being produced and pores get blocked. This leads to blackheads, whiteheads and acne.  
 

What causes it?

  • Hormones
  • Face is not cleansed properly
  • Face is cleansed too much until its too dry
  • Not enough moisturizer
  • Not eating the right foods
  • Picky fingers (you keep touching your face throughout the day) 

 

    How can we help?

    • Active Ingredients - Look for the right products 
    • Don’t over do your cleansing. 
    • Be gentle when dealing with your face
    • Moisturize it! (my face is oily enough, if I moisturize it will be more oily! Trust us and just do this) 
    • Don’t use any harsh scrubs on your face. (Read No.3)
    • Exercise to get your blood circulating (get your face red and sweat) 
    • Stop touching your face and picking your pimples. Let it run its course. 
    • Drink at least 2 liters of water a day 
    • It's called Beauty Sleep for a reason
