How to Clear Blemish Prone Skin

Acne and blemishes can haunt the best and most beautiful. It’s a common yet often frustrating condition that can impact not just our physical appearance but also our self confidence and mental wellbeing. Here, we understand the struggle involved in what seems to be a simple issue but is actually, quite a bit more complex.

Acne and blemishes can result from a variety of things and getting to the root cause is going to be extremely important in your journey. From hormonal fluctuations to consistent hormonal imbalances and genetic predispositions to environmental factors, there is a host of factors that can be the cause of, or contribute to someone experiencing acne. Regardless of what the culprit is, we curated a specialized collection of treatment products designed to target blemishes and restore your skin’s health. Say goodbye to pesky pimples and embrace a radiant complexion with our top picks to battle blemishes. 

The first step you’re going to want to take is to address what cleanser you’re using. We suggest swapping it out to something that is either very simple and gentle, with minimal ingredients such as the Osmia Black Clay Facial Soap or opt for something formulated specifically towards blemish prone skin. One of the most effective cleansers we have ever came across is the Tata Harper Clarifying Cleanser. This gentle yet potent formula goes right in and cleanses the pores while balancing oils, soothing redness and keeping your skin supple and hydrated. 


Next, you’re going to want to find a treatment product to give you that extra boost of care and take you one step closer to restoring your skin back to crystal clarity. Often, face masks are your best bet when it comes to handling acne because of the longer contact time which allows for better absorption of active ingredients into the skin compared to serums, which are typically applied in a thin layer and absorb more quickly. This prolonged exposure to beneficial ingredients maximizes their effectiveness in addressing blemishes. Enjoy our top 5 ultimate favorite treatment masks to tackle blemish prone skin.
