Number one piece of advice... DO NOT PICK! One more time for everyone in the back... DO NOT PICK! As tempting as it is to want a quick fix or spot treatment, take a moment to think of your face as a whole. Picking will only prolong the time to heal and could even leave scarring. It’s easy to see the start of a breakout and want to fix everything right away. Just remember that it took time to develop (regardless of what it feels like), and it will take time to heal as well. You will want to focus on balancing the skin to control oil production and getting rid of any dead skin build-up.
Things you can adjust in your skincare regimen:
Amp up your evening double cleansing routine with an exfoliating cleanser a few times a week. We love the deep pore cleansing paired with the capability to bring down inflammation that you can find with Lychee Willow Bark Deep Clean. What is Double cleansing you ask? This is a crucial part of your everyday regimen. It’s exactly what it sounds like. The first cleanse removes makeup, oil, and pollutants from the day. The second cleanse works to deep clean your pores. Follow with a toner rid any excess cleanser and balance the skin to prep for your finishing products.
Choose a treatment serum that will work hard for you! Retinol is at the top of a lot of lists and our All Night Elixir is blended with vitamin c for a powerful regenerating duo. Are you sensitive to retinol? Fan-favorite Facial in a Bottle has you covered with coveted ingredients like Niacinamide, Azelaic Acid, and Bakuchiol. All working to kill bacteria, strengthen the skin and increase cell turnover.
Hydration is still key! Do not think you have to use all "oil controlling" products. Blueberry Milk Moisturizer provides light weight, long term hydration. With plenty of antioxidants, this heavenly product will help heal the skin & calm inflammation. Daily Greens Moisturizer is a great option for oily skin types to help reduce excess oil production. This does not strip your skin of all your healthy oils!!! Leaves a beautiful satin finish on the skin & still provides hydration without clogging the pores.
Protect, protect, PROTECT! Prevent any chance of scarring and wear a broad spectrum SPF (all the time) but especially while healing.
