One of the biggest skincare conundrums of all time: how to control blemishes. While those annoying bumps have long been stigmatized as a sign of poor cleaning habits or poor diet, blemishes are perfectly normal – and are often an unavoidable part of hormonal fluctuations.
However, for those wishing to fight the plague of pimples, balancing your skin, oil production and blemishes can be a “slippery slope”. We’re here to keep your skin at bay and clear with natural ingredients to control and eliminate any blemish that takes you for a ride.
It’s time to introduce your skin to our best skin care products that won’t take you on a roller coaster ride!
What are blemishes?
What exactly are blemishes, what causes them, and ugh – why don’t they just leave?! You are not alone with your questions and frustrations! Around 80% of people are affected by the plague of pimples at some point in their lives. With the frequency of pimples appearing, why can’t we eradicate them once and for all? Blame it on our poor pores.
There are bacteria naturally present on every skin. The cleaner your skin, the less likely bacteria are to cause problems. However, when dirt, oil, or dry skin gets trapped in our pores along with the oil and bacteria, it creates the perfect environment for it all to mix together and cause problems under your skin.
Our pores or follicles become clogged, which triggers an inflammatory reaction in the skin. Imperfections will then rear their ugly heads accordingly. However, this does not mean that you have been defeated. You just need a little instruction on how these skin culprits behave. We have your back – and your skin!
What causes blemishes?
The problem with blemishes in addition to the blemishes themselves is that many causes can upset the skin’s balance.
Hormones are one of the main causes of blemishes and unfortunately we have little or no control over hormonal fluctuations. Hormones tell our bodies to increase sebum production, or sometimes not to produce any at all, and can upset our skin’s delicate balance. For women, contraceptives containing specific doses of hormones can sometimes have a positive (or negative) effect on acne. And, of course, there are the often unavoidable hormonal issues during puberty.
Other triggers include a variety of medications and their side effects, environmental stressors – like extreme weather and high pollution – diet, and genetics. Since most of these triggers, with the exception of diet, are factors we sometimes cannot change, we can create smooth skin by maintaining what we can change. a healthy diet and an organized skin routine. Maintaining a diet rich in leafy greens (kale, spinach), protein (broccoli, asparagus, avocado) and antioxidants (strawberries, blueberries, beets) and sticking to a natural skin routine will bring you closer to skin harmony.
