Acne occurs when your pores are blocked. Sebaceous glands, tiny glands found near the surface of your skin, excrete a natural oil, called sebum. The sebum lubricates your hair and skin to prevent it from drying out. If there is an excess of sebum on your skin and it mixes with dead skin cells, this mixture can block your pores, causing acne. In addition, bacteria that normally lives on your skin can infect the clogged pores, exacerbating the acne.
Thankfully, a skincare routine that unclogs pores will both treat existing acne and prevent more from forming.
All skincare routines start with cleansing in order to remove grime that has accumulated on the skin during the day or dead skin cells that have collected overnight. Wash your face with PURIFY ME hydrating cleanser. The jojoba beads gently exfoliate the skin, removing excess oil and dead skin cells. The argan oil both fights acne with its anti-inflammatory properties and hydrates skin with its fatty acids. After washing with PURIFY ME, your skin will feel clean, but not dried out.
Even though acne-prone skin tends to be oily, it needs to be moisturized with light moisturizers morning and night. Moisturizing skin twice a day helps create a balance, making sure your skin is not too dry or oily. Don’t worry if you tend to have oily skin, your skin knows when you have moisturized, and it will produce less sebum in response. Serums are great for acne-prone skin, as they are lightweight, concentrated formulas that have small molecules that penetrate deeply into the skin.
In the morning, apply REVIVE ME replenishing serum. The sterols in the formula help retain moisture in the skin without clogging pores. In addition to keeping skin hydrated, they replenish lost minerals and vitamins.
At night, apply RENEW ME bakuchiol serum. Research shows that bakuchiol improves cases of mild to moderate acne. Bakuchiol stimulates skin cell regeneration. A faster, more efficient skin cell turnover cycle can reduce the chances of acne occurring.
Everyone needs to wear sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage and skin cancer. PROTECT ME with SPF30 is a great option for acne-prone skin. The chamomile, melissa and rooibos extracts in PROTECT ME have anti-bacterial and soothing effects on skin. Since bacteria can aggravate existing acne conditions, a sunscreen with anti-bacterial properties is ideal to prevent additional breakouts.
Exfoliating is an important step in an acne-prone skincare routine. It removes dead skin cells from your face, preventing clogged pores, and it cleans out pores, treating blemishes. In addition, exfoliating uncovers fresh new cells, allowing your other skincare products to penetrate your skin better. Use DETOX ME instant mask 1 to 3 times a week. The kaolin clay reduces excess oils and sebum, purifies skin and unclogs pores, clearing up acne and preventing more breakouts.
If acne penetrates the skin deeply, the skin and the tissue beneath it can be damaged. When the acne clears, the body tries to repair this damage by producing collagen. Unfortunately, if the body produces too much or not enough collagen, a scar appears. There are two forms of acne scars: depressed scars and raised scars. When the body doesn’t produce enough collagen, depressions or pits form as the skin heals. If the body produces too much collagen, then a raised scar appears.
Acne scars do not have to be permanent. With the right skincare routine, you can treat acne scars.
Start with washing your face with I AM PURE dual facial cleansing bar. Use the cream colored side of the bar. This side contains coconut oil, which improves skin’s elasticity and firmness, which have been affected by the scars. In addition, the olive oil nourishes and hydrates skin, boosting its overall health.
As mentioned before, using sunscreen is essential every day in order to maintain healthy skin. ApplyGLOW ME + tinted moisturizer with SPF30. The universal tint will hide the acne scars, while FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™, a combination of argan oil, argan leaf extract and argan stem cells, smooths and nourishes skin.
Double cleanse with I AM PURE dual facial cleansing bar. Start with the dark colored side. The Dead Sea mud, green clay and charcoal will pull out excess oils and dirt, restore pH balance and infuse skin with healing minerals. Then, wash with the cream colored side. The almond oil reduces scarring by smoothing and rejuvenating the skin.
After the double cleanse, apply RENEW ME bakuchiol serum. Bakuchiol triggers collagen production and skin cell regeneration, which helps to reduce acne scars and dark spots.
Then, apply RECOVER ME nourishing night cream. Niacinamide reduces dark spots and pigmented scars, and copper tripeptide 1 improves collagen, glycosaminoglycans and elastin production, helping to repair skin affected by scars. In addition, FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™ smooths skin while you sleep.
