How Can I Fix My Acne & Oily Skin?

How Can I Fix My Acne & Oily Skin?

I'm sure you have heard it all before, every success story, and tried a hundred different products. Everyone has their own opinions about what works for them, and this is just my story of how I over came my oily skin and acne.

I have very oily skin on my face and scalp, along with acne in the "T-zone area".

Originally, I am from the United States, and I tried every acne product, including the most common 3-Step: Wash, Cleanser, Scrub brands. But nothing worked for me!

It was either too much work to stick to every day (with the busy life I had), too expensive to buy regularly, or it worked for a month and then stopped working.

Once I moved to Australia, I became quite interested in natural skin care - especially DIY treatments and home remedies. I then decided that my first mission was to create something to finally help get rid of my acne and oily skin!

After a lot of research and testing (initially on myself), I formulated what is now my favourite mask - Seaweed Clay Mask.

Why is seaweed good for acne & oily skin?

First, I decided to do some research on the benefits of seaweed, as I knew that it is commonly used in many natural skin remedies.

I found that there are high amounts of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids in seaweed that help keep the skin moisturised, youthful, and bright. Seaweed is also an anti-inflammatory and detoxifying agent that helps with treating acne.

Don't forget to moisturise (even if you have oily skin!)

If you have oily skin do you need to moisturise your face?

YES!

One of my biggest mistakes in my teens was trying to strip my face of every last drop of oil. If you strip all the oils and moisture from your skin, your body may produce excess oils which ultimately leaves you with a bigger problem.

This led me to stumbling on jojoba oil. It's great because it mimics your regular skin oil levels, so it is a perfect natural moisturiser. Linseed is another wonder ingredient because it also helps to stimulate regular oil levels on your skin.

If you're looking for a great moisturiser, something that is both lightweight & balanced, then I highly recommend you check out our oily skin moisturiser.

Calamine doesn't get enough credit!

Finally, after diving deep into the benefits of calamine, I realised that it just doesn't get enough credit!

There are so many uses and benefits, but for some reason I've heard so many people only think about calamine as something you use when you have chicken pox or bug bites. Here are some of the surprising, yet amazing benefits of calamine:

  • Improved skin texture
  • Soothes itchy and puffy skin
  • Aids in the treatment of dry skin and acne
  • Aids in the treatment of minor rashes

After reading up on all of these benefits, it seemed like a no brainer to include it in my face mask (or at least test it when formulate initial batches of it).

Countless hours of research and testing led to the final product I came up with, the Seaweed Clay Mask, and it is my favourite mask that we sell at Bath Box!

This mask is so versatile that you can use it as a scrub and a mask. Personally, I use it as a daily cleanser by lightly exfoliating my skin with the mask, leaving it on while I wash my hair, and then rinsing it away. I also use it as a fully fledged face mask once a week. I apply it on my face, let it set for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash it away.

The first time I used it I was so impressed with the results. I noticed that my skin was immediately softer after only one use, and it reduced the amount of oils that would accumulate around my nose and chin. It also cleared my blackheads after consistently using it for a couple of weeks. I was so impressed, and now that we have sold hundreds around Australia, it is the nicest feeling to see customers post about their similar positive experience on our social media pages.

Living with oily skin and acne is something that no one wants to deal with. It's uncomfortable, painful, and can be incredibly frustrating. I hope that my story and products help others in their quest for naturally bright, clear, and healthy skin.

Love,
