Acne is arguably one of the worst skin conditions you could have and if you’re reading this post, you’re probably either suffering from it now or have in the past. There’s nothing that reduces your confidence more than not feeling your best. This absolutely includes the condition of your skin. When I have a bad skin day, I feel like it makes a noticeable impact on my confidence and self-esteem. This is one of the many reasons that here at SkinOwl we believe skincare is selfcare. When you care and nurture your skin, you are caring for yourself, both inside and out.
If you know anything about SkinOwl, you’ve probably heard that our amazing founder, Annie Tevelin, suffered from cystic acne for years. In her frustrating search for a cure, spending thousands of dollars on fancy treatments and prescription regimens, Annie decided to create her own solution. She went back to school and designed her own line of skincare with a goal of obtaining clear, radiant, and healthy skin with all-natural, earth-friendly ingredients. Using her own formulas, Annie cured her acne.
So if you’re looking for a solution for your acne, SkinOwl has got you covered.
What’s in the SkinOwl Acne Regimen
The first step in any SkinOwl regimen is cleansing the skin. This step is essential in any routine because it cleanses away bacteria, dirt, oil, grime, makeup, environmental pollutants, and many more acne causing elements that gather on the surface of the skin throughout the day. By cleansing, you allow your products to penetrate deeply into the skin so that they can work their best.
For acne prone, oily, and sensitive skins, we recommend the SkinOwl Tomato Beauty Bar. Tomato juice is rich in Vitamin C, to brighten, Vitamin A, to stimulate cell turnover, and Vitamin K, to reduce redness and inflammation. Bentonite clay absorbs excess oil and draws out impurities from deep within your pores. Tea tree oil helps fight acne by killing bacteria.
The next step in our SkinOwl Acne Regimen is to moisturize. All of our moisturizers are facial oils boosted with botanicals elements. It may sound counter-intuitive to treat oily and acne-prone skin with an oil, but actually, when you use a facial oil on your skin, your skin reacts by producing less oil. Less oil and less sebum means less acne!
In the morning we recommend our Lavender Beauty Drops. This facial oil has a base of argan oil which is very hydrating and fast absorbing so you won’t have a greasy or sticky feeling. It also helps reduce the appearance of scars, so it’s perfect for treating acne scars when used over time. It also helps reduce acne by dissolving sebum, a thick, sticky, oily substance made by your skin which can clog pores, leading to acne. Plus, its antioxidants can even help protect against wrinkles! The lavender in this facial oil helps by reducing inflammation and redness caused by acne and sensitivity.
At night we recommend our Maqui Berry Beauty Drops pm. This facial oil has a base of baobab oil which is also very moisturizing, hydrating, and fast absorbing. It helps reduce inflammation of the skin and can treat dryness and sensitivity. It can also reduce the signs of aging, especially since it’s paired with Maqui Berry oil, which is the world’s strongest fruit antioxidant. This very strong antioxidant protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals, sun exposure, and environmental toxins and pollutants. Maqui Berry improves radiance, smooths uneven texture and tone, as well as helps clear congested skin.
To boost your SkinOwl Acne Regimen we recommend using our Maqui Beauty Whip Face Mask. This face mask is a bit untraditional but in all the best ways. Firstly, it can act as a traditional mask. You can apply a thick layer to the face (2 pumps) and leave it on for 20 minutes. Washing it off is totally optional because it acts as a makeup primer and a hydrating face moisturizer. Or you can leave it on as an intensely hydrating and reparative overnight treatment all night long. Our favorite way to use it here at SkinOwl is to mix it with our Maqui Berry Beauty Drops pm to boost our nighttime moisturizer.
