Gentle Tips for Treating Acne-Prone Sensitive Skin

The tools you need to keep breakouts at bay

Treating acne, no matter the circumstances can be stressful, but when you have sensitive skin, it can become even more difficult. Most acne treatments are overly aggressive and while they work to rid the skin of acne-causing bacteria they can leave it red, irritated, and even more sensitized than before. The struggle is real — but before you start asking the universe “why me”? Rest assured that there are products out there that can help zap away pimples while keeping your skin intact.

Keep it simple

We get it — trying new skincare products is so much fun, but with sensitive and acne-prone skin, it can actually make things worse. Bombarding your skin with product after product can irritate and lead to more acne. Just keep it simple and stick to the essentials that your skin already loves. Consistency with a gentle regimen will balance and calm down your complexation encouring acne to subside. Will it happen overnight? -Probably not. Be patient and it’ll pay off!

Put soothing ingredients first

When it comes to treating acne, the first thing that usually comes to mind are acne treatments. Unfortunately, when you have sensitive skin these can be too harsh for your skin to handle. Instead of focusing in powerful yet irritating ingredients like Benzoyl Peroxide — prioritze the soothing ingredients in your routine. We’re talking Centella Asiatica, Panthenol, Beta-Glucans, Allantoin and so many more. These ultra-soothing ingredients will help calm acne-related inflammation and stop hyperpigmentation from forming.

Our holy grail for sensitive skin is Bell Pepper Serum. This lightweight gel-like formula instantly absorbs into the skin calming any signs of discomfort. It’s formulated with — you guessed it — Centella Asiatica which is antibacterial working to fight that breakout bacteria while soothing all signs of stress. The blend of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and beta-glucans further reinforce your skin barrier helping it ward off acne and breakouts for good.

Watch how you exfoliate

It can be easy to get frustrated with the unwanted texture or breakouts and try to exfoliate it away. Physical exfoliants (like scrubs and washes) can be great but not for sensitive skin. The abrasives can be overly harsh, causing more harm than good. This is where chemical exfoliators come in. They’re a much better alternative as they are made of acids that get rid of the bonds that hold skin cells together leaving you with clearer, more even skin. But, keep in mind it’s all about choosing the right chemical exfoliator.

Exfoliators come in many different forms from Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs). When it comes to sensitive skin, AHA’s and PHA’s are your best bet. AHAs are great because they exfoliate while boosting your skin’s moisture levels. Meanwhile, PHAs are smaller in size meaning they won’t penetrate the skin as deep avoiding any potential irritation while still effectively targeting acne.

But, for the most sensitive of skin you might want to opt for an enzymatic exfoliatior like our Tomato Serum. This serum is packed with fruit enzymes that speed up your skin’s cell turnover rate to exfoliate without causing undue stress and irritation. This glow-boosting formula also contains L-Ascorbic Acid, the most potent form of vitamin C, that will help prevent and diminish acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

Find the moisturizer that works for you

Moisturizers are essential to combating acne-related irritation because they fortify your skin barrier and protect it from acne-causing bacteria. However, not all moisturizers are meant for those with sensitive skin. Moisturizers work by forming a film that traps hydration and fills our cells with lipids to make them plump. For those of us that struggle with skin sensitivity, the hydration from a lot of these products will only last for about an hour, then leave your skin more dried out and irritated than ever.

Our Tofu Gel Cream is a must-try due to its weightless formula and luxurious feel. It works to cool and calm red, inflamed skin making it perfect for those who deal with sensitivity. Its powerful blend of soothing ingredients calm from the moment of application. The innovative formula also contains EGF which boosts wound repair, getting rid of acne and breakouts faster. Your skin is bound to fall in love!

💛 LONG STORY SHORT

Mixing sensitive skin with acne is no fun. It’s a long road of trial and error, but with our tips and tricks you’re sure to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
