Characteristics of blemished skin

Blemished skin presents problems such as pimples, blackheads, enlarged pores, excess oil, redness and acne scars. It can be prone to inflammation, irritation and have an uneven texture. The complexion may appear dull, and the skin may lack radiance and clarity.
To take care of this type of skin, it is essential to adopt a suitable routine.

Actions to adopt and those to avoid

Clean your skin regularly

Clean your face morning and evening with a gentle cleansing gel enriched with salicylic acid and probiotics after removing makeup. Avoid harsh makeup removers and cleansers that could irritate your skin.

Hydrate with a non-comedogenic skincare routine

Hydration is essential, even for oily skin, as dehydrated skin can cause increased sebum production, making blemishes worse. So use a day and night moisturizing lotion or cream that suits your skin type.

Exfoliate once or twice a week

This will remove dead cells from the epidermis and decongest pores to prevent breakouts and blackheads.

Protect your skin every day

Always use sunscreen appropriate for your skin type to protect your face from the sun's harmful UV rays. Indeed, excessive exposure to the sun and external aggressions can worsen skin problems.

Above all, don't touch your face!

Avoid touching your face with dirty hands as this can transfer bacteria to the skin and lead to rashes.

Adopt a healthy lifestyle
A healthy, balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables provides your skin with the nutrients it needs. Likewise, drinking enough water helps flush out toxins from the body and keeps your skin healthy.

Sleep well !
Lack of sleep can lead to increased inflammation, hormonal imbalance, decreased cell regeneration, dehydration, and oxidative stress. The skin can therefore present imperfections following a lack of sleep.

The ingredients to favor in your cosmetics

The makeup and skincare products you consume must be non-comedogenic, that is, products that do not block pores.
Likewise, favor products that contain purifying, balancing and gentle exfoliating active ingredients.

Salicylic acid, lactic acid and glycolic acid penetrate pores and help remove dead cells, excess oil and impurities. You will mainly find them in treatments such as serum, scrub and cleanser. These active ingredients are perfect for oily skin with imperfections! For sensitive skin, choose salicylic acid which is a gentle exfoliant that gently removes dead cells from all areas of the skin.

Niacinamide has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe the skin and reduce redness related to blemishes.

Retinol is also an interesting ingredient because, derived from vitamin A, it promotes cell renewal and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores for beautiful skin. However, be careful to use it sparingly if you have dry or sensitive skin.

Prebiotics and probiotics will also regulate and balance your skin, whether it is dry, combination or oily. They prevent the proliferation of bacteria responsible for the appearance of imperfections.

Zinc is also an excellent anti-imperfection active ingredient. It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help treat acne and mattify the skin.
