HOW TO GET RID OF BLEMISHES, PIMPLES AND ACNE & GET BEAUTIFUL CLEAR SKIN

 

Shiny skin, acne, pesky blackheads and painful red pimples – blemish-prone skin can be incredibly frustrating to deal with. But it need not be! Knowing the right skincare products to use and following some simple guidelines can make all the difference and improve the skin’s overall texture and appearance.

There are many factors that can contribute to breakouts: Hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, psychological stress, unhealthy diet and using unsuitable skincare products. Excessive alcohol and smoking can also have severe detrimental effects on the appearance of the skin. Sadly, there is no magic cure for pimples. The key to maintaining clear skin is rather the combination of good skincare and a healthy lifestyle.

To achieve beautiful and clear skin it is important to understand the role of androgens. These male hormones control the production of sebum in our skin. When they over-stimulate the sebaceous glands, they cause an overproduction of sebum. The excess sebum in combination with bacteria and dead skin cells clogs the follicles, which results in acne, pimples and blackheads.

So the question is: How to get rid of pimples and then prevent future breakouts? First of all, proper cleansing is essential to clear the skin of excess sebum, make-up and other impurities. After cleansing, it is highly recommended to apply an alcohol-free tonic to clear the pores, restore the skin’s pH and reinforce its natural protective barrier. Finish the routine with your go-to serums and moisturizers. Be sure to follow this routine consistently, in the morning and evening. For pimple emergencies we recommend our SOS Spot Concentrate.

More tips to combat breakouts: Regular use of an AHA Peeling and an anti-inflammatory, clarifying face mask is very effective for treating pimples and acne. Use once or twice a week to see a lasting improvement to your skin.

What is a comedo?

When the skin produces too much sebum and dead skin cells block the pores, the sebum is unable to make its way out of the follicle and clogs it, causing comedones to develop. They appear in the form of closed comedones (so-called whiteheads: small white bumps on the skin) or open comedones (so-called blackheads). 

How do pimples form?

To put it simple: Pimples develop when comedones become inflamed. More specifically, they are caused by bacteria called propionibacterium acnes. Pimples can manifest as papules (small bumps on the face) or they evolve into pustules (painful and filled with pus). 

Oily skin and pimples – What can I do?

From cleansing to moisturizing – your skincare products should target enlarged pores and provide a mattifying effect without over-drying the skin, to combat existing blemishes and prevent new breakouts. We recommend using light, non-greasy formulas and an alcohol-free tonic that will not irritate the skin.

How can dry skin be prone to blemishes?

Unlike oily blemish-prone skin, dry blemish-prone skin lacks sufficient moisture. As a result, the skin starts to feel tight and increasingly dry. Blemishes and pimples are caused by overactive sebaceous glands producing too much sebum. The excess sebum in combination with bacteria and dead skin cells clogs the follicles and the sebaceous glands.

How can marine peptides help my skin?

Many anti-acne products dry out the skin to the point where it gets irritated. What makes the microscopic marine peptides so special, is that they are extremely gentle and well-tolerated and able to improve the general condition of the skin in a natural way. They are true anti-pimple allrounders with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce blemishes and clogged pores and minimize redness caused by pimples.
