Natural adult acne skin care tips

Green People’s UK range of natural adult acne skin care products uses a powerful blend of natural plant actives to help cleanse the skin of impurities, unclog pores and re-set the skin’s sebum production.

These gentle, natural actives work in synergy and reduce the appearance of spots and blemishes by soothing inflammation and giving the skin the tools it needs to fend off acne bacteria and therefore spots.

 

Adult acne: who gets it and why?

Anyone can experience acne at any stage of their life. Where teenage acne is normally along the T-zone of the forehead, nose and chin, adult acne tends to affect the cheeks, jaw line and neck. Acne can also affect the back and shoulders.

Acne bacteria feed off a naturally produced skin oil called sebum which is released by the pores and keeps skin supple. During the hormone-shifts of puberty skin releases a surge of sebum and this partly explains why teens are so predisposed to spots.

With age, sebum levels start to stabilise but excessive sebum production can continue and can be stimulated by:

  • Stress
  • Hormones
  • Pregnancy
  • Blocked pores
  • Harsh, drying skin care products

 

How can natural skin care help adult acne?

Green People has created a range of anti-blemish products using natural ingredients which are particularly effective at fighting adult acne in four key ways:

  • Regulating sebum production
  • Prevent clogged pores
  • Supporting healthy skin flora
  • Controlling bacterial growth

Natural skin-balancing actives used in our organic skin care products for spot-prone skin include:

SEBUM BALANCERS

Ginger Stem Cells: Mattify skin and reduce sebum production by as much as 20% in just 28 days

Black Willow Bark: Gentle but effective Black Willow Bark Extract is a rich source of naturally occurring salicylic acid. It helps to balance sebum production and won’t irritate skin that feels extra sensitive whenever spots appear.

Green Tea Extract: Soothing and rich in calming antioxidants, it’s the perfect fit for spot-prone skin and calms sebum production and inflammation.

 

MICROBIOME BALANCERS

Prebiotics: Your skin is a microbiome and needs a balance of good and bad bacteria to stay clear of spots. Prebiotics support the good bacteria that live on your skin and naturally fight the bad bacteria that cause spots.

PORE DECONGESTERS

Bentonite Clay: This natural clay draws out and traps dead skin cells, toxins and pollutants, thereby removing them from the skin surface.

Pineapple Enzymes: This exfoliating active breaks down the protein bonds holding dead skin cells to the surface of the skin, allowing them to be shed so that they don’t block pores.

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVES

Tea Tree Extract: This active has potent antimicrobial properties to fight yeasts and moulds that may be responsible for secondary infections in acne-prone skin.

Tips: what to avoid in your skin care

Being too harsh on your skin can make spots worse. To help spots fade be kind to your complexion; use non-comedogenic skin care and limit your skin’s exposure to the following:

X  Pore clogging ingredients
X Harsh exfoliators and skin care acids
X Skin drying alcohols and acids
X Soaps with a high pH
X Popping your spots

 

Tips: what to limit in your diet

A balanced diet supports balanced skin. Limiting your consumption of the following food groups may encourage a healthier complexion but, as we all have different dietary needs and different skin needs, any changing you make to your diet should be made gradually and ideally under the supervision of a dietician, dermatologist, nutritionist or health care professional.

X Excess sugar
X Carbonated drinks and alcohol
X Greasy and processed food
X Refined carbohydrates
X Excess dairy
