The Secret to Getting Rid of Acne

The Secret to Getting Rid of Acne

Ah, acne, pimples, breakouts…no matter what you call them, they’re an absolute pain to deal with. True, this skin concern can be daunting and tiring but knowing the right way to treat it is essential to healing your acne. And as tempting as it sounds, quick fixes won’t work with acne.

When we say ‘healing’ we really mean healing so that your acne won’t come back! Of course, there are some exceptions like your usual hormonal breakouts (ladies, we’re in this together) but other than that, healing acne takes a lot of trial and error, right? Well, there is one main treatment that so many people forget about that will help acne-prone skin… ready for the reveal? 


Let’s go into this concept for a bit, shall we? When we break out, we think drying out the skin will help get rid of the oil clogging up your pores and making you break out. Or maybe drying it out will kill the bacteria? Right? WRONG! This is not the way to go about it! The key to treating acne is hydrating the skin while treating acne. Let us explain.

When you strip your skin of too much oil, your body will think ‘Oh no! Where are my precious oils?!’ so then your body will produce more oil to make up for the lack of it. Don’t fall into this horrendous cycle that will damage your skin barrier and probably make you have more skin concerns than acne alone. Oils are good for your skin because it helps moisturize your skin. The key is balancing it out with hydration!

So, this is why the 3 products we recommend all include hydrating ingredients while also containing the active ingredients that will help combat breakouts.
