To Lessen Acne, Reduce Oil And Bacteria Inside The Pores


It’s a fact that bacteria thrive in oil. So if you can lessen the amount of oil on the skin, then technically the acne-causing bacteria is destroyed, reducing your chance of blemishes.

This is why many acne lines are very drying – they want to get rid of all the oil and bacteria on the skin.

But this is where the problem lies. When you use harsh products, it will temporarily reduce the oil and therefore reduce the bacteria living in the oil, but it quickly backfires because harsh products will cause your skin to produce even more oil—which then can cause more breakouts! …

Use products that reduce oil and disinfect the skin, without being harsh and irritating. This is why Allure Magazine chose our AHA/BHA Cleansing Gel as the Best Cleanser for Oily/Problem Skin. It successfully reduces oil and bacteria deep within the pores without causing your skin to get dried out.

Bottom line: Gentle products help reduce oil and disinfect skin.  This act diminishes the ability for acne-causing bacteria to thrive inside pores, lessening blemish activity.
