Have you ever dealt with a big angry zit on your big day or oiliness that can rival an oil reservoir?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Clinical studies show that 40 to 55 percent of the adult population experience acne and oily skin.
There are a lot of factors that can trigger acne like diet, hormones, or clogged pores. Clogged pores are a result of dead skin, dirt, and excess oil. The deep-seated dirt in your pores is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, which can lead to acne.
Say goodbye to oiliness and nasty zits and hello to clearer skin in three easy steps with Human Nature’s Acne Defense Line. Human Nature’s Acne Defense Line is powered by Tea Tree Oil which has natural antibacterial properties to fight pimple-causing acne.
Unlike benzoyl peroxide which can irritate the skin when used as topical remedy for acne, Tea Tree Oil is a potent but gentle remedy for acne. Tea Tree Oil is gentle enough even for sensitive skin.
Wonder why beauty enthusiasts swear by double cleansing with oil-based and water-based cleansers? Double cleansing gets rid of pore-clogging makeup buildup, dirt, and oil without drying your skin. First, cleanse with Human Nature Bare Necessity Cleansing (40g, P345) or Human Nature Gentle Cleansing Oil (95ml, P199.75) to remove makeup or sunscreen.
Follow up with a mild, non-abrasive, and alcohol free facial cleanser like Human Nature 100% Natural Acne Defense Facial Wash (100ml, P169.75). This facial wash has aloe vera to help soothe skin and aid your skin’s recovery with minimal scarring.
Human Nature Acne Defense Facial Wash is also free of sulfates like SLES/SLS. These can strip off your skin’s natural moisture which leads to increased oil production.
2. Choose a gentle but hardworking toner.
Toners are often overlooked when it comes to skincare. Toners restore your skin’s natural pH balance to prepare your skin to absorb the benefits of the next steps in your regimen: your serum, moisturizer, and spot treatment.
Toners are also packed with nutrients to help nourish your skin so it’s important to pick one that matches your needs.
After washing, moisten a cotton pad with two to four drops of Human Nature 100% Natural Acne Defense Toner (100ml, P109.75). Human Nature Acne Defense Toner helps lessen oiliness, fight pimple causing bacteria, and reduce the appearance of pimples.
A self-assessment survey on consumers with mild to moderate acne showed that 81% of users reported dried out pimples. At least 80% of uses also reported reduced pimple size.
Human Nature Acne Defense Toner also has natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) from fruit extracts. AHAs act as gentle, non-abrasive exfoliators which helps skin renewal by removing dead skin cells which may clog your pores.
You may experience a little purging as your skin adjusts to a regimen with AHAs. Purging speeds up skin turnover which can last for 3 to 4 weeks as your skin renews itself. You’ll likely experience more pimples as the AHA works its way to ‘de-clog’ your pores. After the period, you’ll have fewer pimples and clearer skin.
You can alternate your Acne Defense Toner with Human Nature’s regular toners (P99.75, 100ml; P184.75, 200ml). Choose one that fits your skin type: Hydrating Toner for dry skin, Nourishing Toner for sensitive skin, or Balancing Toner for oily or combination skin.
Don’t forget to switch to your regular toner during the day as AHAs increase your sensitivity to the sun.
After toning, follow up with your favorite moisturizer or facial oil. During the day, never skip your sunscreen!
3. Spot treatment.
See a budding zit? Don’t fret! Apply a thin layer of Human Nature 100% Natural Acne Defense Solution Gel (P20g, P199.75) to dry out pimples. This gentle gel has aloe vera which counters excessive dryness and redness.
A two-week independent clinical trial showed that users found the Acne Defense Solution Gel as twice more effective than popular chemical acne treatments.
