Do you use Benzoyl Peroxide? This #1 acne-fighter is also a free-radical. What does that mean? Free radicals break down collagen & elastin proteins in skin. Does it effectively combat acne? Temporarily. But who wants to trade pimples for wrinkles? Once the breakouts are gone, you're left with the aging after affects. And the one thing I always hear is how this stuff feels on skin. Dry, irritated, red, scabby. Doesn't sound pretty. I have better solutions :)
Insider trick for getting rid of black heads! natural way you can combat these stubborn, annoying little demons! Mix one tablespoon each of baking soda & fine salt with natural cleansing gel (such as Osmosis Cleanse, Purify, or Deep Clean) & apply mixture to damp face. Allow mixture to sit on face for 5 minutes and rinse. WA-LA! Don’t Pick. Let your skin care routine do its job! Even though it’s tempting to quickly get rid of them, picking will only make the long-term situation worse.
GOT ACNE? DON'T STRIP YOUR OIL...TRRRRUST ME!!! Skincare products that dehydrate in order to reduce oil succeed only temporarily. As soon as the body senses the imbalance, the skin produces MORE oil in an attempt to protect the skin. Dehydration leads to fragile skin and a weaker barrier against dirt and debris, which can worsen acne in many cases. It's a perfect catch-22!
HYDROQUINONE is commonly used here in the US to treat hyperpigmentation. It is BANNED is most other countries due to it's serious risks inc cancer & organ toxicity. It's not a "solution" to hyperpigmentation, it's a temporary fix. You must use repeatedly forever to keep skin tone even. If discontinue, you may experience "rebound" of pigmentation due to inflammation triggering more melanin production. This also ages the skin. It's toxic and there are much BETTER options! www.purnourish.com
