Breaking Up is Hard to Do!
Ending a toxic relationship is never easy, and quitting your zits is no exception. Are you a teen dealing with hormonal acne? Or an adult afflicted with maskne? Here's how to break out of the breakout cycle:
Step 1: The Only EX You Need in Your Life
Step 2: Healthy Healing
Trust us when we tell you, Alcohol will only make things worse. Grab this healing tonic instead. Beta Blend gets rid of greaseballs and refreshes oily skin without stripping away valuable moisture. Organic salicylic acid penetrates clogged pores and kills bacteria. Chamomile, aloe and sage keep the skin calm and hydrated.
Step 3: Treat Yourself Right
Step 4: Keep Things Clear
By now your zits are getting the message that they’re not welcome, and they have no reason to stick around when you use Born Clear Light Moisturizer. This purifying hydrator is beloved by our customers with oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin because it has no heaviness or greasy residue. Aloe, watercress, sage and lemon bioflavonoids also kill bacteria that harbors zits and oil.
You Can Have It All!
Our new Stop Zit Kit includes our full sized retinol treatment for acne and dark spots, plus travel sizes of the exfoliating cleanser, astringent toner, and lightweight moisturizer.
Will It Get Worse Before it Gets Better?
You may have heard of “skin purging” or perhaps you’ve been told “your skin will get worse before it gets better.” Yes, healing is a process and it doesn’t happen overnight. There is a difference between “purging” and a “reaction”.
“Purging” can happen in response to active ingredients that increase cell turnover (like retinol, glycolic acid and other chemical exfoliants). As dead cells are removed, new cells rise and sometimes push blemishes to the surface. You may see additional zits days after starting a new product, or maybe an increase in whiteheads and flaky skin. This should only be temporary and pimples that show up in a purge should disappear soon after they arrive. If your skin is especially sensitive or reactive, ease into new products by starting with small amounts, or using every other day until you build up a tolerance.
A “Reaction” may be an indication of an allergy. Hives or rash are red flags from your skin. Pimples in new places are another signal that something's amiss. We don’t recommend sticking with any product that makes your skin angry. If you’re unsure which product is causing a reaction, wait until your skin clears, then introduce new products one at a time.
