What are Blemishes?
Blemishes are often skin imperfections and can appear in the form of pimples, blackheads, acne, and pigmented scars.
What Causes Blemishes?
Blemishes are caused by a number of factors, the most prevalent excessive oil production causing oil-cogged skin. This could be due to accumulated toxins sitting on the skin, a buildup of dead skin cells, makeup and environmental pollution. However, seasonal, hormonal and stress factors can often cause our skin to become congested. Your current skincare products could also be cogging your pores if you aren’t selecting the correct anti blemish products. Bacteria buildup from touching your face can also lead to a greater chance of blemishes occurring.
How to Feel Less Congested
Ensure that you are drinking enough water daily, that you are exercising regularly and eating a nutritious and balanced diet also helps to detoxify the skin. Your beauty regime should include products that contain no harmful chemicals that can aid in clogging your skin. Ensure that you cleanse, mist and moisturise morning and night as a basis for clean, healthy skin and always take off any makeup before going to bed! Anti blemish products are known for their ability to quickly destress and detoxify the blemish. Exfoliation is also key. Exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week to help shed dead skin cells. That includes not only your face but your body too! Look for congested skin products that help to cleanse, treat and hydrate the skin without causing excessive oil production. Active ingredients such as Lemon, Sandalwood and Mandarin in congested skin products are known for their oil controlling properties.
