What Products Are Good For Acne Skin?

Acne prone skin can spring up from a variety of circumstances, and be challenging to manage. We have several natural strategies to soothe, balance, and keep breakouts under control. Here is our suggested skincare routine for those struggling with unwanted blemishes. 

Nighttime Routine

Step 1: Cleanse
Cleanse the skin with an oil cleanser. We made an oil cleanser just for those with acne prone skin. It contains gentle, skin soothing natural oils to reduce inflammation and bacteria. Check it out here.
Why oil cleansing? Won't that make oily acne skin worse? Actually, it might be the very thing your skin needs! Oil cleansing has been a huge game changer for all kinds of skin types as it cleanses the skin without disrupting it’s natural protective barrier. When harsh soaps and cleansers are used on the skin they often strip this barrier and it causes acne flareups, dry irritated skin, more sensitive skin, dermatitis, rashes, or it leads to an overproduction of oil in the skin as the skin tries to compensate. Oil cleansing improves the skin’s ability to regulate oil production and can then improve these conditions.  As oil attracts oil, it is really effective in removing makeup as well as grease and grime from the day. It’s also easy and effective to do! Here’s a quick tutorial on how to oil cleanse.
Step 2: Balance
Balance and soothe skin with our Clarifying Toner. This toner is made with Hypochlorous Acid, or HOCl. HOCl is often called nature’s super powerful disinfectant. It is a natural-occurring molecule in the body created by our white blood cells to fend off infection, bacteria, and injury to the skin. When used in skincare, HOCl is effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, including acne and dermatitis. It can soothe skin sensitivities and support against irritation. 
Step 3: Treat
For mild to moderate cases of acne apply 2-3 drops of the Blue Balance Serum to the entire face. Spot treat acne breakouts and recurring breakout areas with the Clarifying Serum
For moderate to severe cases of acne, apply 2-3 drops of the Clarifying Serum to the entire face. 
The Clarifying Serum is made with oils such as Black Cumin Seed Oil which hydrates, soothes, smooths, and nourishes the skin. It targets fungal infections and blemishes, resulting in a smoother, clearer, and brighter complexion.
The Blue Balance Serum is made with Blue Tansy Flower Oil which is shown to reduce redness and irritation, is anti-inflammatory, and possesses skin clearing and soothing properties. 
Step 4: Moisturize
If you need a little extra moisture you can also end the day with the Blue Beauty Moisturizer at night. It can be a little heavy on some, so only use a little!

Morning Routine

Step 1: Freshen
Rinse your skin with water. Most skin does not need to be cleansed again in the morning. Over cleansing can lead to dry, irritated skin. 
Step 2: Balance
Mist the skin with the Clarifying Toner.
Step 3: Treat
Apply 2-3 drops of the Clarifying Serum, or the Blue Balance Serum. You can apply the Blue Balance Serum to the entire face and also spot treat heavy acne zones with the Clarifying Serum. 
Step 4: Protect
We have a Clarifying Kit for Acne Prone Skin, which includes our Clarifying Line and a Charcoal Cleansing Bar that you can use on the face and body.

Additional suggestions

  • Try using our Green Tea Grains as a gentle mask 1-3 times a week. Apply and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing with water.
  • Weekly wash your bedsheets, pillowcases, makeup brushes, and sponges. 
  • Consider purchasing red light therapy. Here is a link to my favorite red light therapy products. Why try red light therapy? Red Light and Near Infrared Light therapy stimulate your body’s natural healing process at the cellular level. Most red light therapy devices will have a blue light option. This option is more beneficial for acne as it has a shorter wavelength from red light and penetrates closer to the surface of the skin to kill the bacteria in and around the sebaceous glands.
