What are the signs of acne-prone skin?
You know your skin is acting acne-prone when it feels irritated, looks a little red, maybe your pores are enlarged, you can see blemishes, or your skin tone is discolored or uneven. Acne-prone skin may also feel and look unusually oily, extra shiny, or very dry. But here's how to solve all that...
- Begin with deeply cleansing your skin with Ashes Reincarnation Cleansing Grains. Place a quarter-size amount of Ashes in the palm of your hand and add a few drops of water until you reach the desired consistency for cleansing. Allow it to burst and bubble in your hand before gently massaging it into your skin. Ashes will balance your skin's pH, stimulate healing, and reduce inflammation.
- If needed (once or twice a week), exfoliate with Sand Red Desert Mineral Polish. In a circular motion, gently use Sand to rid your skin of dead skin cells and toxins. Sand will brighten you skin and allow it to absorb much needed healing nutrients.
- Combat excess oil and sebum production with Purity Perfectly Clear Tonic. Make sure you shake well first and then apply as desired. Some people prefer to apply it by patting it on with cotton balls while others choose to apply it with their fingers, it's really up to you and what feels best for your skin... follow your intuition. Purity will fight infections and sebum production, reduce the size of pores, and increase cellular metabolism.
- Brighten and protect your skin at the beginning of each day with Electric Sky Universal Elixir. Put 6-8 drops in the palm of your hand, press your hands together and then press the formula into your skin.
- Calm and moisturize with Clarity Awakening Face Cream. Gently massage and then pat cream into your skin until fully absorbed. Clarity combats acne because it contains anti-inflammatories, phytonutrients, and antioxidants that fight bacteria and microbial infections, it also soothes red spots and reduces inflammation.
- Deep clean your skin, including removing makeup, dirt, and impurities with Rain Replenishing Oil. Gently massage Rain into the skin in a circular motion. Place a hot, damp washcloth over your face and allow it to steam for a moment while the cloth cools down. Gently remove any excess oil with the cloth. Our oil cleanser calls upon ancient wisdom to penetrate and cleanse the deepest layers of your skin. Rain will balance oil production, clear acne, heal redness and rough patches, and reduce inflammation. You may also want to add a couple drops of Electric Sky Universal Elixir to Rain for some additional nutrients and anti-inflammatory powers.
- Fight acne-causing bacteria while quickly adding healing moisture to your skin with Honey Bee Revelation Mask. Use this miraculously soothing mask to stop bacteria growth in its tracks. Gently apply the mask to your entire face and neck with your fingertips. Allow mask to work its magic for about 10 minutes; you may notice that your skin seems to be "drinking" it in. Rinse with warm water to reveal a new layer of glowing skin. Blemishes will feel and look less irritated, the healing has begun.
- Once, or perhaps twice a week, it will be time to detoxify your skin. Use Smudge Spirited Detox Mask to effectively rid your skin of deep-down dirt and toxins. However, it won't deplete your skin like other masks, rather it infuses your skin with super nutritious ingredients, while it detoxifies. Put a quarter-size amount in the palm of your hand and add water until you have a thin, fluid texture. Apply to your face and neck in gentile sweeping motions. Allow the mask to remain on your skin for about 3 minutes.
- Quickly reduce inflammation and fight acne-causing bacteria with Purity Perfectly Clear Tonic. To rebalance oil and reduce sebum production, apply Purity to a cotton round and sweep it across your skin. Purity will also promote cellular metabolism, shrink pores and tighten skin, balances your skin's pH, and brighten and soften you skin.
- Heal and regenerate with Electric Sky Universal Elixir. Place 6-8 drops into your palm, press your hands together and then gently press the elixir into your skin. Follow your intuition, you may also want to add a couple drops of Electric Sky to your Clarity, to create a more moisturizing night cream.
