Characteristics of an acne-prone skin

  • The T-zone is oily and prone to spots and inflammation
  • The skin on the cheeks is dry or normal

Blemish-prone skin is a combination of different skin types. The T-zone (chin, forehead, nose) is oily and shiny due to the very active sebaceous glands. Due to excessive sebum production, the balance of the skin is disturbed, and pimples or blackheads appear. The cheeks are dry to normal and often feel tight or flaky. While this skin type is the most common, it poses a major challenge for many.

SAY NO TO DRYING INGREDIENTS

As you may know, good facial care is essential, both to make acne disappear and to prevent it. Still, many anti-acne products are aimed at drying out the skin and many people fall for that. After all, acne skin must be oily skin, right?

It’s absolutely not true – in fact, it worsens the condition of the skin even more.

The power of SELF products

What can our active ingredients do for you?

SELF products are non-greasy, penetrate deep into the skin, normalise the functioning of the skin barrier, and protect the skin from harmful external influences. In addition, they provide an intense cleansing of the pores.

  • Deep cleansing of the pores.
  • Counteracts the roughening of the skin and clogging of the sebaceous glands.
  • High levels of vitamin C and salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is fat soluble and therefore very suitable for oily and impure skin. It penetrates the pores and dissolves accumulated sebum – one of the best solutions against blackheads and whiteheads. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Vitamin F is rich in essential fatty acids that keep skin hydrated.
  • Palmitoleic acid slows down the ageing process and stearic acid ensures that moisture loss is minimised.
  • Allantoin promotes the healing process and in combination with Vitamin A and E helps to combat acne, and it helps to improve skin irritations and skin disorders.
  • Is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and kills fungi thanks to lauric acid and anthraquinone.

For an optimal effect, it’s important to use the products for at least 6 weeks. In this period your skin barrier will adapt to natural ingredients, what can possibly lead to a temporary flare-up of acne. Nevertheless, you should continue the process! Your skin will thank you!

How can you take care of acne-prone skin?

DOs

  • Mild care
    Impure skin needs care that restores its balance and its natural protective layer. Choose mild, natural care products that moisturise, nourish, and restore the moisture balance.
  • Pay attention to dry cheeks
    Dry cheeks lack lipids. Apply a rich day and night cream daily to minimise moisture loss and to nourish and protect the skin 24 hours a day. Rich moisturising products restore the skin barrier and prevent irritation.
  • Take care of your oily T-zone
    Oily areas indicate an overproduction of sebum and may be the result of a nutrient deficiency. Use a mild, natural cleansing lotion twice a day to get rid of impurities and bacteria. Use a natural, mild facial scrub on oily areas 3 to 4 times a week. This exfoliant counteracts roughening and congestion of the skin.

DON’Ts

  • Aggressive products
    A shiny T-zone is annoying and needs appropriate care. Aggressive products damage the skin even more and can stimulate the production of sebum in oily areas. So don’t use them!
  • Picking spots
    Never pick your spots. This creates a wound and allows bacteria to easily penetrate it.
