Special tips: How to control your acne during fall
Did you know that Fall is the most
common time of year when breakouts are at their highest?
Dead skin cells which clog pores is the
reason why there is an increase of blemishes due to the drier air and harsher
winds of the transitional swing from summer to winter. On the other hand, don't
give up on acne treatment just yet. Here are a few tips for surviving the
transition from summer to fall:
Is Post Vacation
Stress worsening my acne?
Lounging at the beach with a pina colada
in one hand has finally come to an end. Vacationers are beginning to pack up
and head to pulling out office chairs or opening textbooks. This big transition
may cause persons great anxiety leading to terrible breakouts especially on
acne prone skin.
How is this possible? Scientists and
dermatologists, explain that the brain and the skin both make the same
stress-related hormone that causes inflammation. In addition, that stress
interferes with the thyroid’s response to thyroid stimulating hormone, and low
levels of thyroid hormone leave the skin more vulnerable to inflammation.

- Set aside fifteen or twenty
minutes a day for de-stressing activities: meditation, yoga, simple walks or

Cranberries contain phytochemicals which have the power of anti-inflammatory
properties to keep blemishes at bay. We also recommend our Cranberry Facial Scrub. This delicate scrub is good
for reducing redness and inflammation and also contains nutrients that will
smooth and moisturize the skin.
- Sweet Potato. One reason
those sweet potatoes are a super food is that they are full of free-radical
fighting antioxidants. Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins A and C, both
of which are known to play an important role in preventing and speeding healing
of acne. This fruit also contains a low glycemic index which means it doesn't
have a drastic impact on your blood sugar levels. Some research has indicated
that spikes in your blood sugar can lead to inflammation, and as you already
know, this condition primes your skin for acne breakouts. Additionally, sweet
potatoes can replace squash in our face mask recipe if you've got some on hand.
We also recommend our Sweet Potato Mask.
Don’t forget to eat your green leafy vegetables! These also help the
acne fighting mission! Foods such as spinach, kale, cucumber, broccoli and
collard greens are a great addition to your daily diet as they contain vitamins

increasing amount of sun exposure resulting in a boost of melanin production.
The top layer of your skin thickens which slows down the natural shedding of
dead skin cells. Because of this, the skin will look extremely dull and
To restore the barrier function, one
must purchase moisturizing products, especially those fortified with
niacinamide to nourish and smooth skin, restoring radiance. The oil flow in the
skin during the summer months is still occurring at this time of year.
Therefore, the sudsy cleanser may be a bit too harsh for fall. To prevent
additional drying by indulging the skin with a soap-free face and body wash, that is also non-comedogenic.
Exfoliation is critical during fall and winter months, as pore-clogging skin
cells need to be sloughed away to keep breakouts at bay.
