How To Treat Blemishes Naturally

blemish prone skin

When we suffer from a skin breakout, our first instinct is often to reach for a harsh, chemical-packed acne treatment – but did you know that skin blemishes can be treated with natural skincare products? 

Wondering how to get rid of blemishes? With its ability to fight the cause of skin blemishes within just 30 minutes, 8 out of 10 women have said they would happily recommend Sukin’s new Blemish Control range to friends and family. 

Rather than drying out the skin and causing further irritation, this natural blemish remover helps to fight imperfections at their source without compromising skin’s health. Keep reading to discover how to treat blemishes and the best products for blemishes.

What are blemishes 

Face blemishes are caused by an overproduction of sebum which leads to blocked sebaceous glands. Put simply, acne blemishes occur when the pores become blocked. They can be triggered by a number of factors: 

  • A reaction to topical products 
  • Diet 
  • Stress 
  • Hormones 
  • Genetics 
  • Environmental factors 

To get rid of blemishes, many will reach for harsh, chemical-based products targeted at blemish-prone skin. While this may work to dry out excess oil and blemish causing bacteria, these products can dry out the skin and compromise its natural healthy function. 

Rather than choosing a synthetic blemish treatment, consider a natural blemish remover 

Blemish skin products: Which chemicals can be found in them?

One of the most prominent ingredients found in traditional blemish skin products is Benzoyl Peroxide. This synthetic ingredient is popular due to how swiftly it can kill bacteria. However, it can leave the skin dry, red and irritated. 

Azelaic Acid is another potentially synthetic ingredient commonly found in mainstream blemish skin products. While it works to exfoliate the skin and unclog the pores, it has also been known to leave skin red and itchy.

Natural skin care products for blemishes

To create the best products for blemishes, Sukin harnesses natural blemish reducing properties from a blend of Eucalyptus Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Salicylic Acid. 

This combination gently yet effectively assists in clearing the pores and ridding blemish prone skin of dead cells, while helping to reduce the inflammation associated with breakouts. 

Sukin’s Blemish Control range also relies on Willowherb and Quince, rather than chemical Azelaic Acid, to naturally minimise the appearance of pores, blemishes and surface redness.
