Pimples and Breakouts

Pimples and Breakouts

Acne is a very common skin problem, more common with teenagers.

Having a great skincare routine will help to keep acne under control.

What is Acne:

Red inflamed bumpy spots also known as pimples that show up on the surface of our skin which can cause insecurity and not to mention can be rather painful too. 

Blocked pores will cause your skin to break out. If your skin produces overactive oil glands along with dead skin cells and bacteria (ingredients for disaster) then these together will clog up your pores causing the skin to become infected and….well…..hello acne. 

Breakouts and Pimples 

There’s nothing worse than getting ready for a night out and discovering you have a skin breakout, or even worse, a pimple!

So, what causes them, and how can you reduce the chances of getting one just before your night on the town?

We all know that if we don’t cleanse and clean our skin properly, we’re at risk of clogged pores which can lead to breakouts. But that’s only half the story. Your skin produces sebum, which is your body’s natural moisturiser. It’s an oily, waxy substance that is produced by your sebaceous glands, and it coats, moisturises and protects your skin. But what happens when your skin care routine isn’t up to scratch, and what happens if you’ve had a few late nights and your skin is feeling dull, oily or shiny? This can lead to an overproduction of sebum, which combines with dead skin cells and can plug your pores, leading to a breakout.

Sometimes, overproduction of sebum can be as a result of hormonal imbalance, often during puberty and pregnancy, but it can also simply be your genetics that causes it. Poor diet, lack of sleep and environmental factors can also play a part.

How Argan Oil can help:

This is where things get interesting. Argan oil is packed with natural Vitamin E, which is widely used as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. When used in high concentrations (like 100% pure) it actually inhibits the growth of cutibacterium acnes, the cause of those pimples. 

Studies have shown that people who are prone to breakouts and pimples are often likely to be deficient in Vitamin E, so using 100% pure Argan oil can help ensure that your skin has a steady supply.

Strangely, Argan oil can actually help your body to regulate its production of sebum. It seems counterintuitive that putting an oil on your skin can stop your body producing oil, but that’s exactly what happens. Because Argan oil is so light and is absorbed almost instantly into your dermis, your body doesn’t need to produce its own, thicker, waxier oil, and production of sebum reduces. The result is clearer skin, with fewer blockages and less redness associated with breakouts.

We’ve seen some stunning results, not only with just the odd breakout, but with teenage acne too, where it can really reduce the painful red bumps and associated nodules.

If you’re prone to redness, breakouts and pimples, oily or combination skin, we’d love you to try Arganics Argan oil for yourself and see the incredible difference it can make. 

Causes of Acne:

Hereditary related, diet, cosmetics, hormonal imbalance, antibiotics, stress.

How Argan Oil can help: 

Luckily this liquid gold contains anti-acne properties (vitamin E included) which helps to repair the skin. Has anti-sebum (oil) effects which helps to regulate the overactive oil gland production which helps to minimise potential breakouts as well as helps to calm the skin from infection. Once Argan oil has been absorbed in the skin it won’t be greasy and therefore will not clog up your pores. Great oil balancer for acne-prone skin.
