1. Acne Begins With Blocked Pores, aka "Blackheads"
Many believe that blackheads are the result of trapped dirt and grime in the skin. Which isn’t true! They're the result of oil and dead cells getting trapped in a pore, where they block the duct and mix with bacteria.
When exposed to air the clogged pores turn black. Red pimples develop when blackheads become inflamed.
Tip: Keep up a gentle cleansing regime to reduce blackheads developing. We recommend our SkinB5™ Acne Control Cleansing Mousse as a gentle skin cleanser.
2. Blame It On Your Hormones
Tip: Integrate sport and relaxation techniques into your week to help release some of that tension.
3. Adult Acne Is Not The Same As Teen Acne
Tip: Try a softer, more sensitive cleanser and use it daily. Also, moisturise habitually to help fight against your naturally drier skin.
4. Over-exfoliating Skin Is Bad!
Tip: Stay away from harsh facial scrubs.
5. Yes, You Can Still Wear Makeup if You Have Acne…
Tip: Choose natural-based makeup and always ensure you remove makeup, cleanse and moisturise every night effectively.
