Whether you just started dealing with breakouts or have been battling them for years, we all have the same questions as to what skin care should be used to get the best results in clearing up your skin.
However, after burning through 100’s of dollars on skin care products, the question turns into why does no skincare ever work for clearing up my breakouts?
That’s why I am pulling back the curtain and showing you the 4 reasons why nothing has ever worked and what you need to look for in skincare to find the results you are after!
1. To Exfoliate or Not to Exfoliate?
Breakouts are due to clogged pores, which consist of dead skin. Exfoliation is a big key to removing this skin and eliminating clogged pores. However, you can exfoliate improperly. Make sure to use a gentle mechanical exfoliation daily and not a chemical one, as chemical exfoliation can be too harsh on sensitive, breakout prone skin for daily use.
2. Harmful Bacteria
Making sure to clean your face is good but if your cleanser is just stripping everything off leaving you with that tight and dry feeling and not actually killing bad bacteria while leaving the good bacteria, then you will not see much results from it. Ingredients like Manuka, Tea Tree Oil, Hawthorn Berry, Colloidal Silver all help with killing bad bacteria while leaving the good bacteria. Make sure you are using a cleanser preferably with multiple ingredients that work against bad bacteria for the fastest results.
3. Balance Skin Oil
Your skin needs oil to protect itself. However too little leaves you dry, too much leaves you oily, and combo skin, well, leaves you frustrated. By using a cleanser with the correct natural oils that mimic your skin’s naturally produced oil this will balance every skin type out leaving you with a perfectly hydrated glow.
4. Good Nutrition
Your skin is an organ and just like the rest of your organs, it needs good nutrition, if it’s going to fight off breakouts. Make sure everything from your cleanser to your daily moisturizer is made with natural plant and mineral based ingredients. As your skin can absorb the nutrients from these ingredients topically and create new healthy skin cells with it.
