Acne / Blemishes

Acne is caused when sebum (oil), bacteria, or dirt clogs hair follicles. Acne can sometimes leave dark spots, pockmarks, or scarring on the skin. Blemishes are any mark, spot, discoloration, or flaw that appears on the skin. “Blemish” is a broad term that refers to any skin mark. There are numerous types of blemishes. Excess oil can mingle with dead skin cells, dirt, or bacteria. This results in pimples, pustules, blackheads, and whiteheads forming. Pores can become clogged from products, such as makeup, sunscreen, or moisturizers.

Look for products labeled as non-comedogenic. These are designed not to clog pores. Hairstyling products can also clog pores if they get onto your face. Environmental toxins, such as dirt, car exhaust, and pollution, can sit on your skin, mingled with oil, and clog pores. You can also transfer dirt and bacteria onto your face by touching your face with your hands.

What you eat might have an impact on your skin. Food allergies and contact dermatitis can both cause skin irritation and bumps. Dairy products, such as skim milk, may cause acne in some people. Diets high in sugar and simple carbohydrates may also lead to blemishes. There are so many other factors that are involved that I have not mentioned, and to be honest, the list can become very extensive. The products in this category are acne-safe and non-comedogenic. In addition, there is no artificial fragrance or parabens.

You are what you eat. When we eat the wrong things, we can have a buildup of candida in our gut. 

Osmosis Skin Clarifier:
A fantastic cleanse to minimize mucus in the body and candida in the gut—a must for anyone suffering from Comedones (blackheads). In Grades 3 and 4 Acne, I recommend doing 2-3 rounds of this cleanse back to back in conjunction with Skin Defense and Skin Perfection Elixir. 

Osmosis Skin Defense:
If you have been struggling with hormonal acne, or have a diet high in food preservatives, Osmosis Skin Defense flushes excess estrogen out of the body. One of my favorite must-have internal supplements I take every day for overall better health. 

Skin Perfection Elixir:
I have struggled with body breakouts by my shoulders and ichthyosis all over my back for many years. The frequencies imprinted on this elixir have a clinically proven acne technology that targets redness, inflammation, and blemishes. When ingested twice a day orally in about 3-4 weeks, you will notice close to 
a 60 percent improvement overall.
