MYTHS VS FACTS
"Acne is only a problem for teens". "Acne is due to bad hygiene". Acne only affects people with oily skin". Do these common myths sound familiar to you? The reason that acne is such a large scale issue, is because the prevention techniques and treatment options don't typically match up to the root cause. Let's explore the myths and discuss some natural solutions.
Acne is only a problem for teens
There is a reason that our acne controlling moisturizer, Creme of Aloe is one of our top selling items. 80% of people between the ages of 11 to 30 will experience acne outbreaks at some point, according to the FDA. Adults can suffer with acne well into their 30's, 40's and even 50's based on data from the American Academy of Dermatology.
Acne is due to bad hygiene
It is true that one must have a proper skin care regime using quality noncomedogenic products, but it is certainly a myth to believe that acne is only caused by bad hygiene practices. There are many factors that may contribute to acne issues, including genetics, hormonal changes, stress, diet and use of pore clogging skin care products.
Acne only affects people with oily skin
There are just as many acne sufferers that describe their skin as dry and flaky, as there are that describe their skin as oily. The key to controlling acne is to balance the skins natural oil production. Products containing oil are thought to be off limits for acne sufferers, but in reality they are often the best solution. It takes the use of the proper cleansing oil to effectively remove excess oil, and it takes the proper hydrating oil to restore and balance the natural oil production of the skin.
We believe in harvesting the power of nature when it comes to skin care. Acne sufferers can benefit from the medicinal properties of plant based treatments without the unwanted side effects of many conventional therapies. Our entire acne fighting line is comprised of organic botanicals and beneficial plant based oils that are specifically crafted for acne prone skin, containing all natural ingredients that promote soothing and healing; such as aloe vera, tea tree, chamomile, and hemp oil.
