3 Steps To Keep Your Acne Under Control!
Dear Coco, Hope you are doing well. I am 28 years old and I am still dealing with acne and breakouts. I have oily skin and I have done almost everything but nothing has worked. Please let me know if it is hormonal and how can I get rid of acne and breakouts?
Ask Coco: Acne & never-ending Breakouts?
Hi Samia! This is a great question and many people have recently been asking the same: How can I get rid of acne and breakouts?
I can relate to your situation as I suffered from acne myself for almost 8 years. I am 32 now but I was breaking out all over the place since the age of 28. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by people who never commented on my acne. In fact, they used to cheer me up by telling me “You are young and beautiful, and you should be proud of yourself”. As a matter of fact, acne does not define you.
Almost everyone has experienced acne and breakouts once in his or her life. We did not have masks back then but now it is a necessity and it does trigger acne. The one thing that transformed my skin was a robust skincare routine. I have oily and acne prone skin and I chose natural and organic products for my skincare routine and the results were mind-blowing. Here is what you need to do!
Do not attack your acne with harsh chemicals
The urge to pop pimples and just get rid of them overnight is legit but DO NOT DO IT. The first step to getting clear skin is to stop touching your face. There are many harsh and harmful formulas in the market which claim that your skin is going to be acne free in just a few days. These harsh formulas can irritate your skin and can trigger breakouts as well so do your complete research before applying anything on your face. Start using a gentle and organic face wash like Conatural Tea Tree & Neem Face Wash twice a day. Make sure to change your pillow covers regularly. Tea tree & neem face wash is the best organic face wash for oily skin in my opinion.
Use Tea Tree Essential Oil in your skincare regime
There are many organic skincare products for oily and acne prone skin but nothing works like Tea Tree Essential oil. All you have to do is apply Tea Tree Essential oil on your pimples. If you want to apply it on your entire face, add one drop in any carrier oil and massage it on your face and neck.
Keep your skin moisturized
You may have often heard “Do not use moisturizer, it will make your acne worse”. Every skin type needs moisture and hydration to stay youthful. As a teenager, even I was terrified of applying moisturizers and I avoided using them. Moisturizers that include mineral oil are not good for oily skin but all the other moisturizers are safe to use. Moisturizer must be a part of your skincare regime as it nourishes your skin and improves its appearance and texture. If you have oily and acne prone skin, start using Saffron Complexion Builder by Conatural. This gel based formula is the best organic and natural moisturizer for oily skin type as it gives you clearer and brighter skin, without being too harsh.
The best part is that you can get all the 3 products in one bundle which is our Acne Solution bundle. This bundle has 3 products Tea Tree & Neem Face Wash, Saffron Complexion Builder, and Tea Tree Essential Oil. Start your skincare routine now and see visible results within two weeks!
