What is Causing My Acne?

Organic Skin CareJessica AndersonComment

Acne can be a troubling skin condition for both teens and adults. But there are a variety of different kinds of blemishes that get lumped into the acne category and they all have different causes.

At SkinDeep Naturals, a Fort Collins natural skin care company, we provide ingredient-conscious individuals with the right skin care products to clear up break-outs. And we also wanted to inform our readers a little bit more about the types and causes of acne so you can eliminate any controllable factors contributing to your skin issues.

Blackheads: Blackheads are caused when pores are filled with bacteria, dirt, or dead skin. This can happen to anyone but can be lessened by using an exfoliating cleanser like our Daily Exfoliating Cleanser.

Whiteheads: Whiteheads occur when a blackhead closes over.

Acne Cyst or Nodule: These painful, inflamed lumps arise when the bacteria that lives on our skin get trapped inside a clogged pore. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, this is the perfect place for that bacteria to multiply.

Jawline Acne: Jawline acne is more common in women than men, although can be caused in men by shaving with a dirty razor. For women, jawline acne is often hormonal and doesn’t look the same as typical pus filled zits you might experience elsewhere. If you are a woman and prone to jawline acne, it can also be a symptom of poly-cystic ovarian syndrome which is an imbalance of hormones. And for those with sensitive skin, it can even be cause by the rubbing of a chin strap on a helmet, make up, or touching your skin too much.

For many cases of acne, washing your face daily can help alleviate the problem. If you have questions about any of our skin care products or are wondering if they could help you with your breakouts, contact us today at SkinDeep Naturals. We would love to help!

Product Highlight—Daily Exfoliating Cleanser and Refill

Product HighlightsJessica AndersonComment

If you don’t already enjoy the daily routine of washing your face at night, now is a great time to try it. Along with brushing your teeth and your other bedtime rituals, washing your face is a relaxing way to take the day off. SkinDeep Naturals has a Daily Exfoliating Cleanser that is perfect for removing the dirt from the day as well as makeup and dead skin.

This Northern Colorado skin care product is made from all-natural ingredients like organic rice flour, sugar, organic olive oil, and organic essential oils. It also contains jojoba oil and vitamin e to rejuvenate your skin. Unlike some scrubs on the market, this sugar scrub is gentle enough for everyday use but still smooths out the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Something remarkable about our cleanser that shows our attention to the environment is that we sell refills in disposable packages that lessen your environmental impact as you reuse your existing glass jar. We recommend running the jar through the dishwasher and then letting it dry all the way. Then with some rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball, wipe out the inside of the jar and let it air dry. This ensures the jar is sterilized and you can add your refill from the pouch. This refill process saves you a few dollars and allows you to reuse!

Our Daily Exfoliating Cleanser is best followed by our Organic Cucumber Hydrating Mist and Facial Serum. For more information about our natural skin care products, contact us today at SkinDeep Naturals.
