How to treat blemishes naturally

Breakouts are bound to happen whether you like it or not. But one thing we’d like to stop is using harsh, chemical-packed acne treatments that do more damage than good. Fortunately, here at Sukin Naturals, we have plenty of natural ways to treat all kinds of blemishes.

Skip out on nasty ingredients like Benzoyl Peroxide. Banish breakouts and fight blemishes with Sukin Naturals.

What Causes Adult Blemishes?

Several factors can trigger blemishes. Reactions to topical products, diet, stress, hormones, genetics or environmental stressors, just to name a few. However, these marks stem from one thing: an overproduction of sebum leading to a blocked sebaceous gland.

In other words, blemishes occur when your pores become clogged.

Despite our best efforts to encourage natural skincare alternatives, many still rely on harsh, chemical-based skincare treatments. While this may work for removing excess oil and bacteria, these products can potentially dry out the skin too much and compromise the skin’s natural healthy function. Rather than choosing a synthetic treatment, consider a natural solution from Sukin Naturals.

Harmful Skin Care Ingredients

One of the most prominent ingredients in traditional skin care treatments is Benzoyl Peroxide. Popular for how quickly it kills bacteria, this synthetic ingredient is so powerful that it may also leave skin dry, red and irritated.

Azelaic Acid is another potentially synthetic ingredient commonly found in mainstream products. While it does exfoliate the skin and unclog pores, it may leave skin red and itchy.


Natural Skincare Alternatives from Sukin

Instead of Benzoyl Peroxide, Sukin harnesses natural clearing properties from a blend of native ingredients. Eucalyptus Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Salicylic Acid gently yet effectively clear the pores, rid the skin of pore-clogging dead skin cells and reduce the puffiness associated with breakouts.

The Sukin Blemish Control range also relies on Willowherb and Quince, rather than chemical Azelaic Acid, to naturally minimise the appearance of pores and surface redness.
