Understanding Blemish Prone Skin:
If you’re struggling with blemish prone skin like Lisa, it’s important to understand what may cause it, in order to effectively correct it. If you’re blemish prone and consuming a soft drink, chips and pizza diet, it’s safe to assume your skin will react in the form of a serious breakout. Beyond what you eat, hormones also play a key role, as increased androgen levels can result in bacteria, inflammation and heightened sebum production. Outside of your control, DNA plays a huge factor since there’s a genetic predisposition to blemish prone skin that makes some more susceptible to breakouts than others… The good news? A healthy diet and lifestyle choices coupled with a strong and yes, *bells ringing* Certified Organic skincare regimen can help support healthy, blemish-free, clean and clear skin!
Why Certified Organic
A common misconception is that Certified Organic products aren’t as effective as abrasive “blemish busting” brands hailed for their “24-hour acne blasting” benefits. The reality is, there’s a natural way to blast blemishes without applying abrasive scrubs and swiping your skin with pads soaked in toxic and harmful chemicals. Although these products might “zap your zits overnight,” they also can strip your skin permanently, contribute to pre-mature aging, reduce your skin’s natural oils, and leave your complexion dry and peeled…no thanks! Our approach to reducing blemishes yields, gradual, and effective results in the form of natural, soothing, hydrating ingredients that your skin (and the environment!) will thank you for.

Tips for Blemish Prone Skin
DIET & EXERCISE

- Stop touching your face – try not to touch your face, as you might be transferring any bacteria from your hands to your face. And stop the urge to pick and squeeze, it can lead to trigger more breakouts.
- Clean your makeup brushes regularly as they collect dirt and bacteria.
- Have you ever thought about the bacteria and dirt that could be living on the screen of your phone? we take our phones everywhere, it’s alway in our hands and when we make calls it’s pressed up against our skin where dirt and bacteria can transfer. Make sure to clean your screen.
- Use a separate towel when to washing or drying your face.
- Tie your hair loosely back when you sleep to keep your hair off your face. Be sure to use the right hair tie to ensure you aren’t causing any damage to your hair.
- Change your pillowcase weekly.
- It might also be time to check if you need a new pillow!
- Get a good nights sleep. Not only does the skin repair and regenerate at night but getting a good nights sleep can help reduce stress levels.
- Find a way that best serves you to reduce your stress levels, it could be going for a walk, meditation, breathwork, playing with pets or getting a massage. Big or small, every day we can find something to help reduce our stress levels.
