A high level of sebum production + bacteria + stress + mineral oil = acne 😞
But there are things you can do.
Start by checking your beauty products, especially foundation and concealer, whether they contain mineral oil. Mineral oil or white oil, vaseline, paraffin, liquid paraffin etc. locks in moisture and makes products feel silky-smooth and luxurious, but mineral oil can also clog pores. It seals the skin off and prevents skin from excreting toxins. The clogged pores and build-up of toxins will cause pimples, red spots, acne, black heads etc.
Avoid stress. The stress hormone cortisol increases sebum production and. Too much sebum can lead to oily skin, clogged pores and acne.
Certain bacteria in and on your body can give you a healthier complexion. The bad bacteria may cause inflammation so you want to keep the good and get rid of the bad. To calm your skin and remove bad bacteria, use an anti-bacterial product likeAbloom Soothing Lotion. But don’t be too clean! You must keep your good skin bacteria and some sebum, both are highly anti-bacterial. Cleanse your face only one time per day, in the evening and use a mild cleanser that also nourishes such as Abloom Purifying Cleanser.
Last but not least, use ourMiracle Treatment Oil every other night. Oil is a substance that keeps moist in the skin. It also calms down sebum production. So especially for oily, acne prone skin we advise …..oil!
