Acne and Acne Scars

Lots of us are starting to work out more to prepare for the Summer months and bikini season. Exercising also provides great benefits for the body and mind. Besides working out, this summer is expected to be a hot one! Sweat may begin to clog pores just while enjoying the outdoors and the warmer weather. To help prevent breakouts or acne during these summer months, check out our skin care tips below.

  • Avoid Makeup

Applying makeup before your workout can contribute to clogged pores and breakouts. When you workout and sweat, your pores open up. Open pores are susceptible to dirt and bacteria getting trapped under the skin. You want your skin to breathe while working out so that sweat can fall off the skin instead of being trapped under makeup. If you’re confident in your skin without makeup, try using a lighter coverage or ensure that you cleanse your skin immediately after workout with warm water to reopen pores and flush out bacteria.

  • Cleanse Your Skin

Cleansing your skin daily is important to ensure your pores are free of dirt and bacteria. It is even more critical when you are continuously working out or exposed to outdoor elements such as smog and pollution. During the summer you should wash your face regularly to remove sweat and oils that sit on the skin during the day. Clear Essence has many fruit and natural cleansers that are perfect for the summer due to their natural ingredients such as lemon, olive, carrot seed oil, and papaya. These sweet scented soaps are perfect for the summer season.

  • Use Toners

Still feel oily after cleansing your skin? With the increased summer heat, skin oils reproduce at a much quicker rate leaving skin more susceptible to oils and dirt remaining trapped on the skin. To help close pores and ensure skin is completely clean, try adding a toner during the summer months to reduce oils and balance the complexion. Our Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid helps to regenerate dead skin for a brighter, even tone. Our Sensitive Line Antiseptic Cleanser is perfect for easily-irritated skin types. Use this toner to calm and soothe the skin for a relaxed and refreshed feel.

  • Don’t touch your face

The gym is full of germs and bacteria, especially on gym equipment. Due to this, it is very important to avoid touching your face when working out. Since sweat can also transfer to the face from your hair, ensure that you tie your hair back away from your face. You want to prevent spreading any bacteria to your skin.

  • Products for Men

Chimere Skin Care for Men is designed for the grooming needs of men of color. Though the products are sophisticated, they are easy to use. They treat razor bumps, dark spots, ingrown hairs, Chimere Body Washbreakouts, and acne. Chimere™ Triple-Action Body Wash Formula treats and prevents breakouts. It deeply cleanses the skin to heal and soothe irritations by removing dirt and oil. This pH balanced formula helps tone and invigorate the skin as it cleans. The Chimere Bump Control Cleansing Bar for Normal to Oily Skin is a moisturizing soap that breaks down pore clogging residue and debris, leaving the skin feeling fresh, clean, comfortable and even-toned. It is specifically formulated to meet the needs of men of color with blemishes, razor bumps, and uneven pigmentation.  It is used for acne treatment and prevention, cleansing deeply to remove dirt, bacteria and oil; and it exfoliates dead skin cells for a radiant blemish-free, clear complexion.

Summer is just around the corner. While you may be starting to diet and exercise to prepare for that summer bikini, consider adding a regimen for your skin to get in summer shape as well. Your skin is the first thing people see when they meet you. Ensure that this summer is free of dark spots, bumps and discolorations!

Cleanse

To start your summer prep, keep your skin nice and clean to avoid acne and blemishes from distracting from your natural beauty. Summer will include lots of makeup free days at the pool and while sweating during those hot days. You’ll want to keep your skin blemish free so you don’t have to worry about a zit or waterproof cover-up. To keep skin smooth and even, try exfoliating at least once or twice a week. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, dirt and oils that clog pores and create breakouts and blackheads. Our most popular natural exfoliating soap bar is the My Natural Beauty Olive Oil Soap. This gentle yet powerful exfoliator contains aloe vera, shea butter and of course olives for a smooth and radiant complexion on the face or body!

Toners

Still feel oily after cleansing your skin? With the increased summer heat, skin oils reproduce at a much quicker rate leaving skin more susceptible to oils and dirt remaining trapped on the skin. To help close pores and ensure skin is completely clean, try adding a toner during the summer months to reduce oils and balance the complexion. Our Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid helps to regenerate dead skin for a brighter, even tone. Our Sensitive Line Antiseptic Cleanser is perfect for easily-irritated skin types. Use this toner to calm and soothe the skin for a relaxed and refreshed feel.

Hyperpigmentation

Worrying about those dark spots or discolorations on the body? You’ve been able to hide all winter underneath your clothing and now its time to show your beautiful skin! Maximize your skin glow with Clear Essence dark spot correctors and toning lotions! Get rid of pesky marks and scars with the NEW Clear Essence Exclusive Medicated Fade Creme! Dark marks on the body such as dark spots on the face and hands, age spots, acne scars and sun damage are gently diminished. Looking to treat larger areas such as elbows, knees, bikini area or heels? Our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk has been the tried and true solution for over 30 years for achieving an even, toned, flawless skin tone. Apply twice a day for 4-6 weeks to notice an improved appearance. That means, start now while there’s still a few weeks till summer!!

Stretch Marks

Like hyperpigmentation, many of us can be self-conscious when it comes to stretch marks. The first thing we want to say is embrace them! Everyone has them. Stretch marks are simply the growth signs that come with being an adult. However, to help soften and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, we recommend hydrating the skin daily with a repairing body oil. Body oils soften and smooth the skin for a plumped appearance. Using Clear Essence Body Oils also replenishes the skin with natural vitamins and essential plant and fruit extracts for a refined and even complexion. Check out the Sensitive Line Moisturizing Body Oil which contains shea butter and sesame seed oil for a moisturized skin tone. For added vitamins our Specialist Skin Care Body Oil contains Vitamins A & E to repair discolorations and regenerate collagen to the skin.

Sunscreen

Once you’ve achieved your desired skin tone make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen all summer long to prevent tan lines and uneven patches of skin. Damage to your skin tone is also dangerous as it can potentially result in skin cancer at a later stage in life. Clear Essence now offers a two-in-one formula of its Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk w/ SPF 15! This dual formula helps correct discolorations while also protecting the skin from the sun. Coming soon: Clear Essence Exclusive Medicated Fade Creme w/ SPF 15 will correct small dark spots on the face, hands or scars on the body again with added sun protection to prevent redarkening and new discolorations.

When it comes to your skin one to two products won’t do everything you need. From face, body and treatment products, there’s a few staples that should remain in your cabinet year-round to ensure perfect skin throughout all seasons. Here’s the 5 skin care essentials that should be apart of your daily and weekly skin care routine. Luckily all the items we’re mentioning below are affordable as well! Each item retails under $8 so you can get your flawless skin on a budget! Read on for our tips.

The Platinum Line Complexion Soap for Normal Skin is an all-over body complexion bar which can be used as a face wash for acne on normal to dry skin.

Dark Spot Corrector – Twice a day

Clear Essence TonersA Clean Face is the First Step to An Even Skin Tone!
If you feel like your first step isn’t doing the job, try adding a second cleansing step to completely remove dirt and oils.

Introducing Clear Essence Toners

Blackheads are pores that are filled with dirt and oils on the skin. You may look at the tip of your nose and find a few right now! The best way to get rid of enlarged pores and dirt getting trapped under the skin is PREVENTION! Here’s a few tips to ensure your skin stays squeaky clean without little black pores showing up throughout the day.

1. Clean with your regular cleanser

However you currently cleanse your skin is perfectly fine. Remember that your skin must be clean to use a toner as you want your skin to be clean before you close pores. Use warm water and one of Clear Essence’s first step cleansers such as the Platinum Line Medicated Cleansing Bar or Platinum Line Complexion Soap for Normal Skin to remove the bulk of dirt, bacteria and oils on the complexion.

2. Apply Toner using a cotton ball

After cleansing use a cotton ball and one of our Clear Essence Toners to close pores and keep skin clean for longer! If you have oily skin this also helps ensure that there are no remnants of dirt and oil still left on the skin after your first cleansing step. Clear Essence Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid has the added exfoliating AHA ingredient which helps to also even out the complexion and give a smoother texture. Exfoliating regularly will also help clear out pores and remove dead skin cells trapped on the skin. Our Sensitive Line Antiseptic Cleanser is great for sensitive skin types to soothe the skin after cleansing with natural witch hazel and ginseng ingredients.

3. Moisturize

Double cleansing can dry out the skin. If your skin feels tight after cleansing that’s a good thing! Your pores are shrinked and closed so no environmental toxins can enter the pores and the skin. To eliminate overly drying the skin however, you may add a light moisturizer to rehydrate the skin and add a luminous glow. We recommend a very light layer of our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk to help eliminate dark spots and give the skin an even glow or our Sensitive Line Texturizing Lotion to hydrate without lightening the skin tone.

4 Apply Sun Protection

Exfoliating the skin can cause sensitivity to the sun. To prevent redarkening or new dark spots from forming on the skin and to maintain the effects of your skin care regimen, apply SPF daily. Clear Essence SPF 15 products are two in one formulas great for creating an even skin tone while also protecting from the sun.

 

Have you ever wondered why your ‘black soap’ is your go-to acne cure? Why it has a kind of a strong smell compared to the rest of your soaps? Check out the ingredients one time. You see Sulphur listed below ‘Active Ingredients’? There’s your answer. There’s your acne cure.

Sulphur’s Story

Sulphur? You may say. Yes. We would say. Sulphur has been used since ancient times as an all natural acne cure and can be found in the ingredient list of today’s top skincare brands. It’s natural antibacterial properties eradicate acne-causing bacteria in your pores and prevent future breakouts when used on the daily. (Key word: daily. Don’t just use that Soap or cleanser with sulphur when acne appears, make it a part of your skincare regimen. You will see that the Difference is Clear! 😉 )

Aside from being one of the more milder acne medications, meaning it can be used by most skin types, Sulphur is a vital nutrient for your body, especially your skin. Keratin, which is a sulphur containing protein, is important for healthy nails and hair, and a key structural component of the outer layer of human skin. The Sulphur Institute has created the below chart which shows hows sulphur and your body work together:

Thinking of doing a little sulphur-shopping while on the Clear Essence website? Drop the Medicated Cleansing Bar Plus Exfoliants or CHIMÉRE Bump Control Cleansing Bar inside your cart and tell acne to shhhh!

Few beauty practices are embraced as enthusiastically as exfoliation. Dermatologists have long said that polishing the skin can banish dullness, clean pores and reveal a fresh, glowing complexion due to the removal of dead skin cells. However, it’s easy to get carried away. Buffing too often with abrasive scrubs, sponges and facial brushes can remove healthy oils and enzymes — leading to inflammation, redness, irritation and even hyperpigmentation especially on darker skin tones.

Now, skin-care experts are advocating for gentler measures. Professionals recommend simple cleansers and the next generation of toners that don’t look like exfoliators at all. Toners now pair exfoliating acids with soothing ingredients and are a major shift away from scrub brushes or coarse scrubs. These hybrid liquid formulas sink in easily, don’t require any rubbing and deliver a calming dose of hydration. They bring skin back to a more balanced state and can improve everything from fine lines to acne.

Exfoliate Clean Skin, at Night

Regardless of the formula, apply your toner  after cleansing, preferably at night, since exfoliating can make your complexion sun-sensitive. Dispense a few drops in your palm or a cotton pad and sweep over your face, steering clear of your eyes.

Watch How Your Skin Reacts

Start by using toners only three times a week to avoid irritation. Then, gradually increase your frequency to once a day. A little tingling is normal. But if you notice redness, peeling or a burning sensation, you’ve probably been aggressive. Give your skin a break for a few days or dilute your toner with a few drops of water to cut the intensity.

Carrot is a root vegetable, usually orange, even though purple, red, black, yellow, and white carrots exist as well. Besides their delicious flavor, carrots contain high amounts of beta-carotene and other health-benefitting compounds such as vitamin A, minerals and antioxidants. Carrots offer multiple health benefits and are beneficial for organs such as the eyes, skin, digestive system and teeth.

This crunchy vegetable is low in calories and rich in nutrients gives you high doses of vitamin A and other antioxidants when consumed or applied topically. Some benefits of carrots for the skin are as follow

 Benefits of Carrots for skin

The benefits of carrot for the skin are evident because the vegetable contains big amounts of vitamin A and other antioxidants that protect again various skin issues and help in keeping a healthy skin complexion.

Carrots for Glowing Skin

Consuming carrots helps maintain your skin and keep it looking healthy and radiant due to their huge amounts of vitamin C and antioxidants—they are substances that may protect cells in your body from free radical damage that can occur from exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, pollution, radiation, and normal metabolism.

Carrots Help with Treatment of Scars and Blemishes

An effective way to reduce scars/blemishes is drinking carrot juice because it is full of skin-healing beta carotene—a skin-friendly nutrient that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. Moreover, you can apply carrot pulp on the areas you want to treat to clear the blemishes away.

Anti-Aging Benefits

Carrots are loaded with vitamin C that aids the collagen production in the body. Collagen is fundamental for the maintenance of the skin elasticity. This type of protein helps in the prevention of wrinkles and slows down the process of aging. Similarly, vitamin A, as an antioxidant, attacks free radicals to prevent signs of aging such as wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

Carrots Protects Against Sun

Beta-carotene helps in repairing the skin tissues and provide protection against the sun’s harsh rays. The antioxidants and carotenoids protect and regenerate the skin to help heal sunburns.

Carrots for Dry Skin

When there is a deficiency of potassium, dry skin might occur. Carrots, however, are rich in potassium. As a result, carrot consumption can prevent dry skin to happen, keeping it hydrated.

As you can read, the benefits of carrots are tremendous, so include the vegetable in your diet. Nonetheless, you can also include it in skincare products to enhance results. If you were wondering where can you find them, we’d love to introduce you to our Clear Essence Maxi-Tone Carrot Seed Oil Skin Whitening  Soap  which has a formative effect in stimulating skin cell growth aimed to rejuvenate wrinkled, aged and dehydrated skin. Carrot Seed Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A to help maintain skin tone and elasticity.
