Herbal face cream for acne-prone skin, with evening primrose oil, prickly pear oil, and witch hazel extract.
The acne-prone skin exhibits hypersecretion of sebum, which is due to hereditary factors, or hormonal imbalance. They suffer from sebum overproduction which clogs the pores and creates inflammation outbreaks, often followed by mild secretion.
Our cream for acne-prone skins contains evening primrose seed oil, which is high in linoleic (omega-6) acid and has been sustained to soothe acne flare-ups by reducing skin inflammation. In the same way, it has a favorable, soothing effect on eczema symptoms. It has been studied with positive results that evening primrose seed oil helps the overall health of the skin.
Prickly pear oil has recently come to the forefront of cosmetology research. Early research shows that it has pronounced antioxidant, and antibacterial properties that help the skin’s healthy condition and prevent acne flare-ups. It contains linoleic acid which helps to retain moisture in the surface layers of the epidermis.
Witch Hazel has been observed to relieve inflammation, tighten pores and prevent hair twists in the follicle of the skin. It can help reduce acne, as it can cleanse the skin from excess oiliness.
Necessary steps in the daily routine to take care of the acne-prone skin:
- Systematic daily cleansing with a mild cleanser that does not completely drain the skin from natural oils.
- Use of alpha and beta hydroxy acid products containing active substances exfoliating the surface of the epidermis (water-soluble AHA) and the inner pores (BHA fat-soluble). The action of acids is of primary importance to preventing clogging of pores and the appearance of acne inflammation.
- Contrary to popular thought, acne-prone skin is in continuous need of hydration. Creams that have a thin rather than overly clogging consistency should be part of daily routine. If you skip this step, oily skin will make more effort for extra sebum production and will have a greater tendency for acne outbursts.
- Avoid hard exfoliants that contain granules, because there is a risk of excessively intense exfoliation, minor injury and ultimately achieving the opposite effect.
- Always use sun protection against UVA and UVB rays, a higher index in summer (SPF 50) and even in the winter months, with a lower protection factor (SPF 30). Choose light sunscreen lotion for mixed and oily skin.
- Apply to clean face and area of the neck and eyes. It is quickly absorbed, leaving a feeling of coolness in the skin and soothing hydration.
It is recommended for acne-prone skins, for 24-hour use. If used during the day it must be accompanied by sun protection.
