There is tons of information out there on how to get rid of pimples. But what causes skin to break out, and what does it tell you about your body? Our DALTON Pimple 101 is here to help you find a way to control pimples and prevent future breakouts.
FACE MAPPING Find the Cause of Your Breakouts
Your skin is the mirror of your soul. When you are stressed or not feeling well, it is reflected in your face. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the face can be separated into different zones which are connected to certain organs. This can help you identify the cause of your breakouts, based on where they appear.
Face Mapping divides the face into 7 zones:
Pimples on the forehead
Pimples between the eyebrows
Pimples on the temples
Pimples under the eyes
Pimples on the cheeks
Pimples on the jawline
Pimples on the mouth

SKINCARE ROUTINE For Blemish-Prone Skin
Proper facial cleansing
The first step to blemish-free skin is proper cleansing. If your skin is prone to breakouts, it is especially important to remove all traces of make-up and sebum buildup. Our moisturizing cleansing milk is ideal for dry skin with blemishes. If you have oily, blemish-prone skin, you should opt for a refreshing cleansing gel. The second step is to clarify the skin with an alcohol-free anti-pimple tonic.
How to clear pimples fast
Apply the SOS Spot Concentrate directly on the pimple for instant blemish relief. Follow with a moisturizer that suits your skin type.
The best face mask for pimples
An anti-inflammatory, clarifying face mask works to prevent breakouts and clogged pores and helps to reduce acute pimples.
How to exfoliate acne-prone skin
Regular exfoliation is the key to a smooth complexion and it preps the skin for other products like masks or moisturizers to be easily absorbed. If you have acne or inflamed pimples, you should avoid using face scrubs with granules, however, as that can spread the infection. Enzyme Peelings or AHA Peelings are ideal to gently remove dead skin cells without irritating the skin.
Get professional help
Combining a consistent skincare routine at home with regular treatments from an esthetician is absolutely the way to go if you suffer from breakouts and acne-prone skin. We recommend to ask for a professional extraction and/or AHA treatment.
Anti-pimple face creams
There are countless moisturizers for blemish-prone skin out there. A good anti-pimple cream aims to clear breakouts and blemishes, but it also needs to address the individual needs of your skin type. If you have dry, blemish-prone skin, you need a cream with moisturizing properties. Your cream for oily, blemish-prone skin ideally provides a mattifying effect, without over-drying the skin. If you are starting to notice the first signs of lines and wrinkles, we recommend an anti-aging cream for blemish-prone skin.
