on blemish control

It's back-to-school season.

This means stocking up on everything from school supplies to new clothes and in some cases – skincare. Acne is one of the leading skin concerns teens experience during this time. Change of season from summer to fall coupled with stress and hormonal changes can make breakouts more common than not during back to school season.

How to control breakouts

Reducing the signs of teen acne comes down to a few things.
Namely, hydration and consistency.

Most blemish control routines work to inspire natural hydration beneath the skin surface. Moisture balance can be achieved with humectant ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which pull moisture from deep beneath the skin surface.

BUILD A REALISTIC BLEMISH CONTROL ROUTINE

Blemish control doesn't have to be complicated and can be achieved with the right combination of ingredients. Consistency is always key, and building good habits is much easier with a simplified routine.

At the very least, nightly cleansing is essential to remove surface build-up and reduce oil production. Using a cream-based, hydrating cleanser will help restore moisture balance– especially when combined with a humectant moisturizer or serum.

Does probiotic skincare reduce acne?

Our skin's microbiome plays a key factor in how surface bacteria affects different skin conditions. When it comes to blemish control, probiotic skincare helps balance good and harmful bacteria on the skin surface. When combined with twice daily cleansing and ample moisture, a topical probiotic can help to reduce the conditions for acne to arise.

Even further, balancing our gut microbiome through diet and exercise, along with an effective skincare routine, can dramatically improve conditions for blemish control.

QUICK BLEMISH CONTROL TIPS

Don't Pop Your Pimples! The act of squeezing a pimple can actually push bacteria and pus deeper into the skin, causing more redness, inflammation and swelling – not to mention the chance of developing permanent acne scar "pits".

Cut Out Sugar! A diet rich in sugary foods will likely experience spikes in insulin. When you have too much insulin in your blood, the body’s natural response is to “pump it out” via the skin through fat soluble oils – typically leading to the perfect conditions for clogged pores and breakouts.

Sweat it Out! It may seem obvious, but regular exercise can help improve many skin conditions simply by increasing blood flow to the skin surface. NOTE: It's critically important to always cleanse after sweating to rid skin of cellular debris.

Get Some Rest! Enough can't be said about the effects of stress on Blemish-prone skin-types. Lack of sleep can be the number one contributor to heightened stress levels throughout the day. If you're having trouble sleeping, Valerian Root, Chamomile Tea or a light dose of Melatonin can help you reach and maintain a sleepier state.
