Do you struggle with breakouts, enlarged pores, redness or congestion?
Does harsh acne treating products leave your skin irritated and dry? 🌈✨
Here are our favourite and best ingredients for oily, congested, acne prone skin concerns to help support a brighter and clearer complexion.
Of all the acids, Salicylic acid is one of the best beta hydroxy acids you can use on oily, acne prone skin because it is an exfoliating acid that really gets deep down into your pores, unclogs the oil out and gets rid of dead skin cells. Look for products with a concentration of around 2% to get the benefits. While Salicylic acid is a more milder ingredient than benzoyl peroxide in typical acne treating products, it can still irritate skin and cause redness and flaking especially if you have skin that is already very sensitive or on the dry side.
A soothing Vitamin B3 derivative, studies show this impressive ingredient helps absorb sebum making it perfect for oily skin concerns and dealing with blackheads. Evidence shows just 2% of this ingredient can help lower sebum excretion rate over 4 weeks. Niacinamide also helps stimulate the natural production of collagen, brightens skin tone, strengthens the outer layer of skin and reduce appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and large pores. It truly is an impressive skincare ingredient that not only is hydrating but also well tolerated on all skin types. We use Niacinamide in a concentration of 5% in our Clearing Rescue Serum!’
Clinically proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidant beneficial for reducing acne congestion, fight free radical damage from air pollution and UV damage, and reduces skin redness. Evidence shows this ingredient helps with acne control by reducing the amount of Propionibacteria acnes (P.acnes) on skin - the bacteria responsible for inflamed acne breakouts. Canadian WillowherbTM is a non-steroidal anti-irritant ingredient that does not result in irritation and dryness typically seen from using harsh acne treatment products.
Known to be rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties due to its natural 'Salicin' which helps to naturally dissolve oil and gently exfoliate dead skin cells away for more radiant and clear looking complexion
French Green Clay
Green clay is a powerful, absorbent clay that helps absorb excess oil to mattify skin appearance. It is known to help draw out impurities and dirt to prevent clogged pores and blackheads.
