Pop your pimple problems

Pop your pimple problems

Whether you’re working your way through your teens or have been paying your own bills for years, acne is something nearly all of us have struggled with at some point in our lives. It can be embarrassing. It can be self-esteem effecting. And it can be extremely common. Unfortunately, there are so many different factors which could spark acne that it can be hard to narrow down what specifically may be causing your problem skin. But we’re going to try and help you pop those pimple problems. (Please don’t pop your pimples though!)

All acne has one thing in common – a clogged pore. What exactly has caused the blockage and inflammation can be confusing. Blocked pores can be caused by a number of factors. It could be that your dead skin cells are building up. It could be that your sebum oil is thicker or goopier than usual. It could simply be that you’re producing too much oil. From here, acne-causing bacteria come to feast on the clogged pore. Your body tends to view this an infection, causing your body’s immune system to come to the rescue. And that’s how your pimple reared its ugly head.

Of course, there can be several reasons for your body’s complete overreaction to simple clogged pore. A change in hormones or hormonal contraception, certain medications, diet and even stress can all contribute to a flare up. However, it is important to note that it’s not greasy, sugary food or bad hygiene alone that causes acne. There can be a number of things to consider, but the way to stop the unpleasant cycle of acne flare ups is to try and prevent those pores from becoming clogged in the first place. And the best way to achieve this is with a targeted skincare regime, like our Clear Skin Pack.

First, wash away the excess oil, dirt and grime with an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-acne face wash like our Super Citrus Cleanser. Next, ensure you’ve removed any dead skin cells by exfoliating your skin. We recommend using our Super Acai Exfoliator, once a week, which harnesses the powerful antioxidant and brightening properties of Acai.

The most overlooked step is rehydrating your troubled complexion. While it can be tempting to skip moisturising your skin, drying out your complexion too much can lead to your skin overproducing sebum and creating a bigger acne issue to deal with. Using an oil free, antioxidant rich, non-comedogenic hydrator – such as our Super Fruit Hydrator – can help your skin balance out and keep your pores clog free.

The underrated skin hero in our Clear Skin Pack is our incredible Face Tan Water™. Non-comedogenic and high in antioxidants and specifically created to fight breakouts usually associated with other self-tanners, its anti-acne ingredients will help clear your skin and leave you with a beautiful, glowing and even complexion. Think of it like your secret Instagram filter to camouflage breakouts so you notice them less and feel more confident in your skin. That’s a yes from us!
