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
- 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.
How to get rid of blemishes
To treat blemish prone skin with natural skin care products, make sure each step in your skincare routine works harmoniously with the next.
Step 1. Cleanse with Sukin Blemish Control Clearing Facial Wash
Remove dirt, makeup and environmental pollutants from the skin by applying a small amount of cleanser to the skin and lathering with water. Gently massage the blemish face wash into the skin, then rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
