June Acne Awareness Month

I wanted to take the opportunity to share with you the main causes of Breakouts as June is Acne Awareness Month, I hope you find the information useful.

When you are suffering from breakout prone skin there are 5 main causes, all causes must be treated to gain flawless skin. There is no quick fix when it comes to problematic skin, it takes time and consistency to get results.

1️⃣Hormones – hormones are one of the biggest causes of acne, it often presents itself as breakouts around the chin and mouth.
2️⃣Digestion – foods high in sugar/ dairy or wheat can cause irritation and high amounts of bad bacteria in the gut and in turn your skin must detox this – often shows up as breakouts on the forehead..
3️⃣Dehydration – this is caused from using the wrong cleanser and toner that can be too stripping on the skin or from over exfoliating, it could also be coming from not enough of water and good healthy fats in your diet as they are essential to repair the skins barrier function from the inside.
4️⃣Bacteria or dead skin on the surface of your skin 
5️⃣Excess oil if your skin is over producing oil it can block the pores and cause breakouts.


Hormones - hormones are one of the biggest causes of acne, it often presents itself as breakouts around the chin and mouth. Its important to use skincare that helps balance you skin can doesn't strip the skin of it's natural oils.

Digestion - foods high in sugar/ dairy or wheat can cause irritation and high amounts of bad bacteria in the gut and in turn your skin must detox this – often shows up as breakouts on the forehead. I am sure you have heard of probiotics (good bacteria), Skin Clear Biome™ is a pioneering supplement harnessing the benefits of microbiome technology.

Dehydration- this is caused from using the wrong cleanser and toner that can be too stripping on the skin or from over exfoliating,  it could also be coming from not enough of water and good healthy fats in your diet as they are essential to repair the skins barrier function from the inside. There is also alot of confusion out there that people with oily skin shouldn't use oil based products - this is a MYTH! I've a blog on why oil cleansers work great on all skin types. Skin Omegas are also a great way to hydrate the skin from the inside.

Bacteria or dead skin on the surface of your skin – you need to use a gentle but effective exfoliant that works on the pores to remove excess bacteria and dead skin or any sebum trapped in the pores. Our Cranberry Facial Grains doubles up as a mask and an exfoliator with naturally detoxifying ingredients, which treats inflammation while soothing the skin.

Excess oil – if your skin is over producing oil it can block the pores and cause breakouts Vitamin A helps to balance oil flow and detox the skin. You do not want products that strip the skin, it's all about working towards skin balance and getting the nutrients that you skin needs.
