7 Beneficial Active Ingredient
The Blemish Treatment is designed to address cystic acne and active breakouts in several ways. First and most importantly, it immediately removes the burden of inflammation, redness and swelling in order for the skin to function in a healthy way.
Potent plants chosen for this treatment are capable of creating a healthy flora and microbial balance, which means it allows for microbiome diversity without allowing for a single strain to dominate and cause harm through infection and irritation. Botanical allies are also chosen that help to jump start the healing process and prevent scarring.
Last but not least, the deeply soothing aromatics of this blend have a direct effect on our pituitary gland to reduce stress. Stress is a primary cause for acne and breakouts, and addressing that as well helps bring our Blemish Treatment full circle for assisting in the healing process.
How to Use
First, cleanse, tone, and moisturise skin normally. Then, apply 1 drop to fingertip and use that solitary drop amongst all skin blemishes, irritations, and breakouts. While this product is safe to use during the daytime, we recommend using this product at night for best results.
Use within 6 months of opening and within 18 months of the manufacture date, found on the bottom of the bottle.
* This product does contain a very high percentage of essential oils. Keep in mind our 1 drop recommendation, because it is truly all that is needed to be effective. Depending on one’s own comfort level with essential oil usage, it’s good to keep in mind that high levels of most essential oils are often not recommended during pregnancy.
Note from Laurel
Science: There are many different types of breakouts, and most are not really ‘acne’. The term acne, commonly used to address all forms of breakouts, pimples, cysts, etc., actually stems from a bacterial strain called Propionibacterium acnes. There are so many anti-bacterial cleansers and toners out there that are made to kill this bacteria (and any other strain) on contact, and yet so many have ‘acne’ that doesn’t improve.
We actually have beneficial flora living on our skin which helps to keep any harmful bacteria balanced, so wiping all of it out with anti-bacterial products can be harmful. The real root cause of all breakouts is inflammation, so digging deep to discover why we are inflamed is essential in improving skin health.
Blemish Treatment dramatically reduces swelling, redness, and inflammation, deeply accelerating the healing process.
Ritual: Stress and acne. Self-love and acne. These are real! Breathe deeply. Make time for valiant acts of self-love. As cheesy as it may sound it is a real thing that if you seek out your flaws in a mirror and reflect back self-hatred that cannot lead to anything good. Accept where you are now, breakouts and all. Treasure your skin, treasure your body; and look after them with great care. Give yourself all the love and it will help more than anything else possibly can.
