Welcome back to the Skincare Series! This month, we're taking you behind the scenes on all things blemishes. 'Cause whether it's that monthly hormonal breakout or a big pimple erupting in protest to a lil' too much sugar, blemish-prone skin is certainly NOT isolated to our awkward teenage years. Unfortunately.
Now, with blemish-prone skin, it's really important to make changes from the inside, out. Whether that's reducing your sugar intake, taking a closer look at any hormonal imbalances or even simply identifying any intolerances to food that result in a breakout or two. If you don't improve what's going on inside, you certainly won't see the results you're after topically. So we totally recommend taking the time to see a Naturopath if your wallet allows.
Once you've levelled up how you're treating your body internally, it's time to tailor your skincare routine to match. 'Cause after all, sometimes our skin plays up for no reason at all! I mean, who's team is your skin on?!
1. Wash: Oil Cleanser & Cleanser
We totally hope we're pointing out the obvious here, but if you suffer from a spot or two, you need to make cleansing your top priority. Seriously. Make cleansing your face as important as fussing over your fur child. Excess build-up of sebum, makeup and dirt will clog those gorgeous pores of yours and result in a breakout.
Begin with our Oil Cleanser. Oil attracts oil to help draw out the sebum you need to say 'cya' to. Ah, who doesn't love a deep clean!
2. Exfoliate: Powder Exfoliant
Time to take a detour! Exfoliating is essential. How else do you expect to keep your complexion clear if you aren't removing the groupies that want to hang around?
Don't fret! We're not prescribing you a piece of pumice and an aggressive chemical exfoliant. You know we like to keep it low key (and natural) around here.
Our Powder Exfoliant combines the practice of chemical and physical exfoliation. We use Rice Bran and Salicylic Acid to achieve this and help buff away dead skin cells. Both are natural and suitable for you babes with sensitive skin, of course. So be sure to slide the Powder Exfoliant into your skincare routine, it's ideal for everyday use!
3. Moisturise: Blemish Cream
Stop being so harsh on that beautiful face of yours! Say buh-bye to harsh chemicals like Peroxide and Acetone and continue to avoid them like that stage-five clinger ex of yours.
Instead, opt for a moisturiser that can tend to your needs. Our Blemish Cream is formulated with natural oils like Grapeseed, Apricot and Starflower Oil to soothe your skin and prevent further breakouts. We also added some Aloe' to calm any irritations as well as Vitamin E and Allantoin to help repair any age-old scars.
4. Treatment: Rescue Oil
The Rescue Oil is ready and waiting to solve all your problems! Well, not quite but you sure won't look back once you add it to your routine!
Our Rescue Oil is simply 100% Tamanu Oil and has been used by Pacific Islanders for centuries to help aid wound healing. Once we got word and tried it out for ourselves, we knew we had to add it to the range.
Use this all-rounder every evening and even massage a little into scars and insect bites on your body. It truly is the holy grail of hydration and skin repair.
A few final words...
Did we just totally word-vomit? Forgive us, we just can't get enough of all things skin. Soak it all in, and finally say buh-bye to blemishes for good!
