Acne solutions: one of our favorite acne-combatting ingredients

Acne can be caused by hormonal issues and bacterial issues, including being compounded by excess dead flakes or sebum buildup.

It’s no secret that acne can be prevented by keeping skin pure and free of bacterial infection issues that can either cause acne or make hormonal acne worse.

The gold-standard ingredient in treating acne according to a lot of different studies is benzoyl peroxide. Of course, another good and popular alternative is salicylic acid. 

However, especially in the winter months, the two popular acne ingredients can be drying and irritating causing redness, even more sebum production (as the skin overcompensates to produce more oil to make up for the dryness), which could in turn cause more acne. 

This is when we start reaching for natural solutions like tea tree. This native Australian ingredient includes terpenoids that have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which help keep skin pure and can powerfully help curb back breakouts. 

We’re excited to welcome our newest lineup of products, just in time to deal with acne in the colder, dryer winter months. 

Combat acne without stripping your skin dry and causing more issues in your quest to fight breakouts. 

Sometimes, Mother Nature does know best.

Excuse the blurry image, but this Tea Tree Cleanser is seriously amazing in helping to fight acne while also nourishing skin.

Toners are essential in balancing your pH level, which helps to keep a healthy skin environment to more effectively fight bacteria. And this toner will help do that while also fighting bacteria actively through tea tree. Doubling down on fighting bacteria. Powerful potion in a pretty bottle. 

Keep skin hydrated and supple without clogging pores and worsening acne
