Acne can be a very distressing and unpleasant skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
Acne is most common among teenagers, although it affects people of all ages. Acne can be persistent and prolonged. Depending on its severity, acne can scar the skin and so early treatment is important to lower the risk of this occurring.
We recommend the following products as a natural way to try and reduce the appearance of acne, although these products should not be considered as a standalone acne treatment: SkinKarma, Triology, ReNew and HydraSilk.
These can be used individually, or in combination for the most powerful effect.
For acne, blemishes and breakouts, you can use any of the below three regimes according to your preference and budget. Use them consistently and you should see noticeable results in 3-6 months. Although some people see results much more rapidly, most people see a gradual improvement over time.
Recommended Application Flow
Note: Please use 10% Triology only if this is your first time using FRESH vitamin C
Shake each bottle vigorously for a minute or two before opening to disperse the natural ingredients.
(The HydraSilk moisturiser can be replaced with any preferred moisturiser)
Wait a few seconds between each application to allow the serums to absorb and dry. Our Chinese Shan hand fan can speed the process.
The Triology serum always needs to go first and always needs to be used every day while fresh and active WITHIN ONE MONTH of receiving. The rest of the serums have a longer shelf life with a 'period after opening' of up to 12 months. The ReNew serum should be stored in a refrigerator. For all other serums, store in a cool dark place with lids tightly closed or can be stored in a fridge as long as it’s not TOO cold as this may accelerate crystalisation of the vitamin C in the Triology.
If you're not used to either fresh vitamin C or retinol and are using them together for the first time, then introduce them slowly. Use your Triology only for the first week or two then add in the ReNew every other night for a further week before using both together every day. This should help to avoid any possible irritation.
Note: If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, please substitute the night time application of ReNew serum for an additional application of SkinKarma.
