How About Trying All Natural Acne Health Skin Care?

April 25, 2016

For years there has been a wealth of misinformation about what it is that causes acne pustules, papules, and nodules to form and companies selling acne health skin care products have been exploiting every one of them. There are companies even now selling special cleansers, toners, and oil free treatments. All of these formulas contain benzoyl peroxide in them, and you are told to use each step at least twice daily.

If you are using two, or even all three of these individual acne formulas, then that means that you are applying benzoyl peroxide on your skin up to six times per day. If you don’t know too much about benzoyl peroxide I will tell you that it IS very effective in helping to treat acne, but it has its downside as well. This compound can be very irritating to the skin, and severe reddening and drying of the skin can occur even when applying lightly only twice per day.

What this means is that if you are using multi-step acne health skin care treatments that require up to six applications of benzoyl peroxide per day, it will probably turn out really bad for your skin. You don’t need special cleansers, oil free treatments, and toners to get rid of acne. The development of acne doesn’t have anything to do with dirt, very little to do with oils, and absolutely nothing to do with how toned your skin is.

Dirt does not cause the formation of blackheads and acne, which is actually brought on by hormonal activity that forces the follicular gland to enlarge, and therefore produce greater amounts of sebum. This is where the thought that oil free products are needed, because the excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and forms plugs in the follicles. The Propionibacterium acnes then cause the inflammation that result in acne breakouts.

Your acne health skin care should not be oil free, but must contain natural oils and extracts that will help to control the production of excess amount of sebum. Maracuja passion fruit extract and Jojoba oil will regulate the production of sebum, so that the moisture balance in the skin always remains perfect. Balanced production will significantly lower the incidence of plugs forming in the follicles.

An acne health skin care should feature natural compound such as Phytessence Wakame kelp extract, Shea butter, and Capuacu butter for reducing the amount of inflammation in the skin. The natural antibacterial compound active Manuka honey would kill the Propionibacterium acnes that cause the inflammation that leads to lesions forming. That would take care of all your problems relating to the formation of acne.
