Sudden spot eruptions are the worst!
The good news is, you don’t have to hide until they go away; you can treat them and speed up the healing process. Once the spot has been eliminated, there are steps to take to prevent them from appearing in the first place. Enjoy a clearer complexion, here’s how:
Treat existing spots
If you wake up with a spot on your face or feel the tingle of one coming on, apply Clear Clarifying Mask to the area as a spot treatment and let it sit for five to 10 minutes. The Clear Mask reduces excess oil and deep cleans your pores. The formula is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-viral to reduce bacteria and redness and kickstart the healing process. It also minimises pore size. Keep it on-hand as a go-to spot treatment or use it up to three times a week to keep your skin clear.
Prevent breakouts & sudden spots
Although it’s tempting to cover acne-prone skin with heavy, full coverage makeup, you may end up worsening your skin condition. Swap heavy makeup for a light, non-comedogenic mineral makeup with an SPF. Mineral makeup provides full coverage without clogging pores; instead, it sits on the skin.
Deep clean your pores
Next, think about your cleansing routine, specifically focusing on products formulated to deep clean your pores and reduce spots at the source. For clear pores, start with Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser, a concentrated cleanser that gently dissolves deep-down dirt and debris and reduces excess oil. It also sloughs away the top layer to reveal younger skin cells. The result is clean, clear, healthy skin. Use it as your regular face was in the morning and at night and leave it on for few extra minutes in the morning to optimise cleansing results.
Many people with acne avoid moisturisers. After all, won’t adding more moisture worsen the issue? Not so fast; by using the correct type of moisturiser will help your skin heal and improve its condition. Since many acne treatments can dry the skin, moisturisers prevent the skin from drying out even more.
Mystic is a lightweight, non-greasy hydrating spray that can be used as an alternative to heavier standard moisturisers. Although it’s perfect for all skin types, it’s ideal for those with oily and acne-prone skin as it improves hydration while soothing redness and protecting skin from free radicals. Use it in the morning, evening and throughout the day. It can also be used to set mineral makeup.
Shineless is an oil-free moisturiser that’s free of silicones. It reduces shine and redness and also reduces the appearance of spots and acne. As a result, you’ll notice a healthier, clearer complexion that is perfectly hydrated.
