Managing Acne

Most of us have had a relationship with acne, and they are not great partners! In this situation, we must decide whether to accept it and wave the white flag or kick up a fuss and take action!

We may think it’s a battle that can’t be won, but we can definitely get your acne under control. First lesson, DO NOT SQUEEZE! You can often do more harm than good with the potential of creating more inflammation, darker marks on your face, which are more noticeable and even a scar. Check out our socials for advice on how to extract spots correctly. 

You should by now have a mega MESOA skincare routine on the go! Cleanser, exfoliant, moisturiser, shaving gel. You should be all over this premium gear to nourish your skin. All the MESOA skincare range will battle against acne, pimples, and blackheads, so you’re already off to a good start in protecting your face and your good looks. MESOA products are also chemical-free and include only essential oils that will help your skin thrive and not aggregate or irritate you.

The best way to prevent an outbreak is to stick to a routine. Your chosen products, like the MESOA range, need to contain ingredients that will prevent the formation of spots and manage them should they appear. Your regime needs to be gentle on your skin, needs to keep it hydrated, and you need to stick to it! It’s just like the gym, at the beginning, it’s hard, but it’s a work in progress, and consistency is key!

We’re all capable of improving our skin through the skincare products we use to the food we eat. Here’s some tips on how you can prevent and manage that relationship.

>Wash Right
We all (should) know a bar of soap will dry your skin, which of course, can lead to an acne breakout. Using a good Cleansing Face Wash will rid your skin of all the nasties, including excess oil, dead skin, and grime. But, of course, you 100% need to use that wash twice a day at morning and night, and even a third time if you’re involved in some sweat-inducing activity!

>Scrub Away
So, acne is basically the result of clogged pores, and we know what sits inside those dead skin cells! So, there’s only one thing for it, a good Deep Cleanse Exfoliant! Clean out all the hard-to-reach places on your face with a good scrub, eliminating all the dead skin cells and other acnegenerating grime!

>Go Hydrate
So, there’s an old wives tale that moisturising can actually lead to acne. Wrong! Okay, so maybe right if you’re using a rubbish moisturiser, but using one like MESOA’s Revitalising Moisturiser will help fight against acne by not clogging your pores. It will also hydrate your skin as well as seal the goodness to help prevent a breakout. No matter your skin type, using a revitalising moisturiser twice a day is a good habit to have and will give dull skin a glow in no time!

>Shave Time
Okay, let’s start with the basics! Don’t use old razors, and don’t shave on dry skin. If you’re lazy with your shaving routine, you invite irritated skin. Old razors will wreak havoc and cause a build-up of acne-causing bacteria to your face, something that can be easily avoided, and shaving dry will mean dragging a razor across your face spreading all that badness as you go. You need to prep your face for a shave, so be sure to shower, cleanse and exfoliate first, then go ahead and use a premium hydrating shaving gel for the perfect smooth finish.

All the tips here will help manage and prevent acne build-up, but you need to stick to it. Invest in yourself and your skin and develop a simple routine that works for you. There are no days off, you actually need to do it twice, and know that skincare is for life, not just for the weekend nights out!

Get your skincare sorted, eat well, and watch your skin thrive! Say goodbye to acne for good!
