Congestion and acne

Congestion can affect many of us. It is mainly caused by bacteria and an over production of sebum presenting itself on the skin causing comedones also commonly known as blackheads.  Blackheads then lead to unwanted acne (or whiteheads) on the skin. 

There are many treatments on the market that can help us achieve the beautifully clear skin we all desire. However, step number 1 on the journey to clear, healthy skin starts at home. Don’t just ignore it! Many things can contribute to acne and breakouts – a high sugar diet, lack of exercise, a poor or non-existent skin care regimen. 


Most importantly a good cleanser is key. Cleansing the skin helps to remove any impurities and removes any bacteria sitting on the skin helping to keep those unwanted blackheads at bay. Secondly, moisturise! There is a common misconception that if you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts moisturiser will make you more oily… not if its the right one, suited to your skin type! Moisturising gives our skin the hydration it needs helping to monitor and stabilize our skins natural oils.
