Having acne and oily prone skin is extremely common, especially for teens, those in their early 20’s and for individuals with hormonal imbalances. However, choosing to treat acne or oily prone skin with conventional products that use various chemicals and alcohols in their formulations can often cause more issues. Harsh ingredients typically used in most skin care products strip away the skin’s natural (healthy) oils, which can actually cause more acne challenges for the skin, as well as dehydration and various skin irritations and sensitivities….
Since the skin naturally produces oil, when we use products that remove our natural oils it causes the sebaceous glands (oil glands) in the skin to work over-time, which ultimately makes the skin even more oily, since there is now an imbalance of the skin’s pH.
At Skin Essence Organics, our skin care routine for Acne and/or Oily prone skin actually helps to balance and naturally maintain the pH of your skin! We don’t add any harsh chemicals or alcohols that strip and dry out your skin, as we use various organic ingredients that specifically help to control excess oil and acne from occurring in the first place.
