Our body is exposed to countless external factors every day, and not all of them are kind to it or beneficial. When our organism becomes imbalanced, the feedback it sends about the issue can quickly display on our skin. It is commonly said that our outer appearance is the reflection of our inner health.
Acne in adults is most commonly a result of hormonal imbalance, stress, an unhealthy diet and inappropriate skin care.
In adulthood, acne most commonly appears on the chin, the jawline and around our neck. It is caused by the increased secretion of sebum and the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria. While sebum plays an important role in protecting the skin, it can also cause unwanted acne when too much of it is produced.
Acne can be categorised as:
- Non-inflammatory (blackheads)
- Inflammatory (reddened, inflamed skin changes that are embedded deeper into our skin)
How can we maintain clean, healthy and balanced skin?
Step 1. Balance the skin from the inside out
To keep our bodies balanced, we need to keep a healthy diet, maintain regular physical exercise, avoid stress and generally lead a healthy lifestyle. If the balance in our bodies is disturbed, one of the symptoms displayed will also be adult acne, a good indicator it is time to get your body back into a healthy and balanced state as soon as possible. The process of re-balancing your organism can be accelerated with the help of a special hemp-based active substance known as CBD.
CBD drops or CBD sprays are easy to use and provide skin with excellent support when dealing with adult acne.
Step 2. Proper skin-cleansing routine
It is a fact that cleansing the skin is one of the most important steps of skin care, as only properly cleansed skin can absorb all the beneficial substances of other skin care products. It is important to choose a product that suits the pH level of our skin and does not dry out or irritate the skin in the cleansing process. We must be careful that the cleaning agent does not contain artificial foaming agents, and instead contains natural active ingredients that have cleansing properties.
Non-comedogenic hemp oil with omega -3, -6 and -9 fatty acids unclogs pores and cleanses them deeply. The refreshing cedar that improves the appearance of the pores while acting as an antiseptic, and the chlorella algae that have long been renowned for their exceptional purifying and antioxidant properties, further increase the beneficial effects.
# Tip Treat your skin to a gentle facial exfoliation at least once a week. You can easily do this by adding a touch of fine groats to your cleansing agent and gently massaging your face with circulatory movements to remove dead skin cells. It is important to pamper yourself this way in the evening, as the skin may be a little more radiant after a peel.
Step 3. Moisturizing, soothing and protecting the skin
All skin types need special care that is tailored to its needs. We must make sure that our products are non-comedogenic (they do not clog the pores) and that they provide the skin with the necessary moisture, nutrition and protection. Skin imbalance can also be corrected by using products rich in CBD cannabinoids that target acne and soothe red, inflamed and irritated skin. It is also a good idea to choose products that support the self-purifying function of the skin, are rich in plant acids and can help improve the overall look of the skin pores.
Acne can, therefore, be a completely manageable affliction, which does require a lot of attention, but the results are definitely worth the effort. Radiant and healthy-looking skin is a reflection of a satisfied and happy face that can start the day with confidence – which is the final step that tips the scales to a skin that is luminous with health and not superfluous sebum :)
