Believe it or not the cause of a pimple is unknown. I guess not enough research money. What we do know is . . . Our skin is an organ that eliminates and is useful in detoxifying the body. When the oils in the pores gets trapped or collapses it blocks the sebum (oil) from escaping. This causes toxins to build and bacteria to multiply. Inflammation develops and as a result a pimple or acne occurs.
Some of the causes that are believed to cause acne in adults and teen include:
- Evolutionary Biology (runs in your family)
- Vitamin Deficiency
After talking to our customers about their Acne issues, we find that the majority of them have two of the above causes: Hormones and Stress.
However, Acne has been around forever . . . remembering the 50’s lots of kids with Acne. So I am not convinced that diet has a lot to do with it. People back in the 50’s ate a healthier diet without all the chemicals and hormones in food. I remember as a child growing up in the 50’s the food that I ate then and still eat today taste different. We are in a world of process and chemicals in the foods we eat. So thus I think the theory that food causes Acne may be true today, but I am not convinced.
1) Since we know that the pores get block using a good mask will open the pores and draw out all impurities & toxins in the skin. It may also make new pimples because the clay in the mask will do that. Our mask is made with the purist clay and essential oils to fight acne and other skin issues. Clay mask should only be used no more than once every 7-10 days. Or else your body will over compensate for the loss of oils and therefore encourage more breakouts.
2) We also know that there is a lot of bacteria, our Tea Tree Soap was made for people with Acne, Tea Tree has one of the best anti-bacterial properties. We use a vegetable glycerin soap to keep the skin soft and moisturized. Also our Acne Toner was made to use as a spot treatment and these two products we are told by many are the best in the market. They are excellent in maintaining and keeping Acne under control.
3) There is inflammation and how you can tell is that its red, sore and it hurts. The products I mentioned above will help with the inflammation. However I am a strong believer in good supplements. I only use “Vita Logics” brand. I can speak first hand on the benefits of their supplements. I take the everyday and their benefits have gotten me off all prescription meds. One of the things I love about Vita Logics is that their supplements are called for what they do. You do not have to mix and match and buy tons of different supplements to do the job. Their “Anti Inflammatory” works, period.
With this regiment my customers have not only improve their skin but their self esteem. These are all products that are safe and drug free. NO harsh chemicals or ingredients, natural, organic and safe. Best PART . . it works!
