Keeping Acne At Bay Naturally
Acne is something nearly every one of us, male or female, has dealt with at least once in their lives. This means that all of us acne-fighters have spent hours in front of the mirror, examining their spots, picking pimples (all the while knowing we are not suppose to), squeezing (a definite no-no) and of course trying each and every new trend that promises magical acne-erasing properties and assures radiating, glowing and clear skin.
We all know that these miracle products supposed to erase breakouts do not exist. Because dealing with acne goes deeper than just what you see on the surface. Your skin is the outer reflection of your inner well-being. It is connected to what your body ingests, to how and what you treat it with over time. There are, however, several things you can do for your skin to limit, tame and even prevent breakouts in a natural way.
If you are determined to make serious efforts for your skin to get back on track then you should choose your products wisely. Usually we pick products from different product lines according to our skin type and care routine. However, it is sometimes best to stick to one range of care products as these are often developed to go hand in hand.
Always bear in mind that this should not become a fight against your skin. It is important to embrace who you are and what your body looks like and not feel pressured or embarrassed by some foolish society standards. Remember that you are unique and beautiful, always.
The brand Maroma has developed a natural and simple clean line of products for different skin types. What makes this range of products so lovely is that every single one of them is designed to complement the others so you can mix and match to find your own combination.
Step #1 Face Wash with Neroli
The first step to treat your skin at the end of the day is to remove everything that has gathered in it, let it be make-up, dust, dirt etc. The light foam with Neroli is a must have – it fully removes make-up and excess oil while moisturizing and soothing your facial skin. Neroli has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties making it ideal for treating oily and acne prone skin.
Step #2 Natural Clay Face Mask
After thoroughly cleaning your skin you may want to treat yourself to a weekly mask. Made out of natural clay and packed with natural essential oils like peppermint, lemon, rosemary, basil, ylang ylang and many more, this mask treats congested pores, hormonal acne, excess oil and inflamed skin.
Step #3 Face Cream Scrub
Regular exfoliation is important for clearing away dead skin cells that clog pores and lead to inflammation. This cream scrub is gentle in cleaning away dead skin cells while deeply moisturizing. Please remember that exfoliation is beneficial only if done occasionally, usually not more than once a week.
Step #4 Cream
When you are dealing with difficult skin less is often more. This is why one cream (or maybe one for the day and one for the night…) should do the trick.
The Maroma Day Face Cream is crafted on a base of olive and sunflower oil to regenerate your skin, keeping it moisturized and vibrant while the SPF will protect you against UV rays.
The night cream with retinol will help you to minimize the visible signs of aging. Vitamin E helps to fight free radicals while hydrating and restoring radiance.
