Here are Five Natural Ways of Getting Rid of Acne Fast.

What Causes Acne?

When it comes to deciding on selecting your acne skincare, first of all, let’s start by having a quick look at what causes acne specifically, and which areas of your lifestyle you can mostly focus on to diminish their effect on your skin.

Stress and Acne

Stress can trigger hormonal changes that can increase the risk of acne. But…let’s put chemical and biological imbalance aside for now: How many times in a stressful situation have you nervously touched your face, all while fidgeting with dusty and possibly microbial objects?

Stress significantly induces behaviors like that, which can exacerbate existing allergies and the clogging of pores with bacteria. It is important to be aware of our triggers, and be mindful about how dirt and excessive skin contact can damage the skin on our face.

Environmental factors on Skin Acne

Climate change increases the chance for quick shifts in weather conditions and of extremely hot or cold weather, taking a toll on the general health of our skin by alternating sweat with dryness. As if this weren't enough, the pollutants present on our streets and cities are one of the most prominent risk factors for acne, contaminating the pores of your skin with dirt and dust and altering your skin’s Ph. Having a layer of protection on your skin when leaving the house can significantly get rid of some of these negative effects, laying the basis for healthier looking skin.

What Happens to My Skin When I Have Acne?

While you might jump to the conclusion that your acne is solely caused by the hormonal changes in puberty, pregnancy, birth control, and/or your menstrual cycle, there is much more to that. Hormones do play a role, yes. But how is acne formed when we take into account other external factors, like stress and environmental pollutants?

How Clogged Pores affect Acne

Sebum formation (skin oil) by the sebaceous glands is important for the right hydration of the skin, but excessive secretion could cause problems. Sebum production is under the control of sex hormones, and for females, it increases in the week before their menstrual period - when progesterone levels are higher. The effects of excessive sebum on the skin, however, are only likely to reach a potential skin threat when it mixes with dead skin cells. When dead skin cells mix with sebum, they form a plug in the follicles, which creates an environment for acne-causing bacteria to thrive.

Bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes)

Propionibacterium acnes is a type of bacteria that naturally lives on the skin. But when the pores are blocked, these bacteria can multiply, causing inflammation and acne ulcers.

The presence of hormonal sebum and bacteria on the skin is normal. However it is the inappropriate management of their coexistence on the skin that causes acne breakouts.

So, what is the best skincare routine to avoid this and fight acne?

Natural Acne Skincare Regimen

Lucky for you, we are here to give you a step-by-step guide on how to build an effective, clean and natural skincare routine to minimize acne, with Beautyologie product-specific guidelines.

Creating an effective skincare regimen to eliminate acne involves a combination of cleansing, treating, and moisturizing. This will have your pores unclogged and freshened while stabilizing your sebum build-up to an optimum level.

So let’s jump into it and let’s see what are the 5 steps to follow to treat acne.

1. Gentle Cleanse Your Acne Prone Skin

Start with a mild cleanser to wash your face twice daily (morning and night). This helps remove excess oil, dirt, and bacteria without over-drying your skin.

Green Tea Cleanser  Superfood Facial Bar - Jenette All Natural Skin Care

Green Tea is an amazing natural product to treat acne and acts as great acne skincare; placed directly on your skin, it can clear bacteria and reduce inflammation associated with acne, due to its richness in antioxidants. 

Jenette’s Green Tea Facial bar is packed with the antioxidants you need to fight inflammation, especially the ones caused by pollution or environmental stressors. It has gentle and calming properties on the skin, making it especially suitable for acne-prone skin. Its hydrating power will also never dry out your skin - but rather stabilize your skin’s sebum levels.

Moringa Oil Calming Skin Cleanser - Terres D'Afrique

Speaking of sebum regulation, Terres d'Afrique Calming Foaming Skin Cleanser combines moringa oil's cleansing power with the soothing effects of rooibos. 

Moringa oil is the magical acne skincare ingredient here: it removes impurities like dirt or make-up and also balances the skin’s sebum production, reducing pimples and blackheads.

2. Use a Natural Salicylic Acid Treatment to Minimize Acne

One of the most used products in the modern beauty industry to minimize spots, as well as aging, is salicylic acid, which leaves your skin fresh, radiant, and smoother. It is effective in doing so as it unclogs pores and also provides anti-inflammatory properties, which make it a great product to help cure acne.

While salicylic acid can be effective for many, it may not work for everyone, and its use should be approached with caution, especially by individuals with certain skin conditions, such as acute acne. To add to the stress, aspirin allergies are related to products containing salicylic acid, as they are derived from aspirin itself, which could cause problems for the ones having aspirin-related allergies.

This is why at Beautyologie we represent a few products that contain an Natural Salicylic Acid formula - eliminating the risks of over processed beauty products.

Clarifying Face Oil For Problematic Skin - Okoko Cosmétiques

Rich in natural salicylic acid given by willow bark oil extract, this face oil will clarify problematic skin from spots, as well as helping the skin with ongoing irritation, congestion and clogged pores.

It also contains ceramides, bakuchiol, and helichrysum extract, which all blend to thoroughly cleanse the pores and buff away surface impurities. The appearance of redness and uneven skin tone given by acne is immediately reduced, leaving your skin smoother and refreshed. 

If you would rather go for a stronger anti-scarring formula rather than a pore unclogging one, we suggest you…

Try our BEST Oil Treatments that minimize acne scarring:

Healing Copaiba Balsam (Copaiba Oil - Oleoresin) from Candela Peru

100% Pure Black Seed Oil from Katari Beauty 

These two products are the go-to’s when it comes to cuts, bruises, insect bites, acne, psoriasis, eczema, and any other skin conditions starring scars. With regular use of either one of these amazing natural oils, you will kiss acne goodbye and start noticing your skin not only feels less oily but also significantly less inflamed and less prone to new breakouts. Both Copaiba Oil and Black Seed Oil are potently anti-inflammatory while also being naturally hydrating cleansers.

Whichever oil you decide to go with, we suggest you apply this non-prescription and all-natural acne treatment after cleansing, but before moisturizing - and preferably start with a lower concentration to avoid any possible irritation.

3. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Use a daily moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated without clogging pores. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated even if you have oily or acne-prone skin! Moisturizing is essential to maintain skin balance and right sebum levels. 

We suggest you use our 100% pure and natural Organic Sacha Inchi Oil - Clear Skin Defense.  Even while being an oil, it is fast-absorbing, deeply nourishing and pore-cleaning. And want to know the best part? It is designed for oily and acne-prone skin. You can trust it 100% to make your skin soft, clean, and radiant again!


4. Once a week: Use a Hydrating Mask

To optimize results and increasingly reduce acne, consider using a hydrating or soothing mask once a week to provide additional nourishment to your skin. Look for ingredients like aloe vera or chamomile - they calm your skin and combat redness. So, which are the best face masks for a skin-friendly, at-home acne treatment?

Green Tea Face Mask With Matcha Superfood - Jenette All Natural Skin Care. Remember green tea? As a natural antioxidant, it blends perfectly with all other rich ingredients in this luxury product: cucumber, Jenette’s proprietary blend of Chinese and Korean herbs, calendula, celery, and cold-pressed aloe vera.

This dark green masque is a luxury to apply with its smooth, reducing inflammation, minimizing acne, and boosting skin elasticity all in one go.

Dragon's Breath - Nourishe. This sticky formula creates a smooth face mask that binds to the bacteria and dirt that cause pimples, breakouts, and black spots and washes it away. Perfect for problematic skins, it protects pores without clogging them and brings your skin to a new birth.

5. Extra Daily Tips to Treat Acne

These are two pillars to follow during your day-to-day, regardless of the season and time of year. 

Always apply sunscreen before leaving the house

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every morning, even on cloudy winter days. Sunscreen helps prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and protects your skin from UV damage. The sun also significantly dries out your skin. Apply sunscreen and keep your skin hydrated and protected from inflammation!

No matter what you do...

Avoid. Touching. Your. Face.

As you now know, acne thrives in bacterial environments, or where pores are clogged. Refrain from touching your face throughout the day, as it can transfer bacteria and exacerbate acne. Also, be mindful of not picking or popping pimples! It can lead to scarring, and it also increases the chances for bacteria to settle into opened pores. 

Bottom line….

Acne is a tough enemy, but there are ways to ease your skin into a fresher and cleaner look. While you might want to consult a dermatologist for chronic skin conditions, you can start your journey toward clear skin with us at Beautyologie. Trust our products and build a skincare routine that will leave your skin feeling reborn, and you feeling as confident as ever!
