Special tips: How to control your acne during fall

Did you know that Fall is the most common time of year when breakouts are at their highest?

Dead skin cells which clog pores is the reason why there is an increase of blemishes due to the drier air and harsher winds of the transitional swing from summer to winter. On the other hand, don't give up on acne treatment just yet. Here are a few tips for surviving the transition from summer to fall:

Is Post Vacation Stress worsening my acne?

Lounging at the beach with a pina colada in one hand has finally come to an end. Vacationers are beginning to pack up and head to pulling out office chairs or opening textbooks. This big transition may cause persons great anxiety leading to terrible breakouts especially on acne prone skin.

How is this possible? Scientists and dermatologists, explain that the brain and the skin both make the same stress-related hormone that causes inflammation. In addition, that stress interferes with the thyroid’s response to thyroid stimulating hormone, and low levels of thyroid hormone leave the skin more vulnerable to inflammation.

  • No need to stress anymore!
  • Get plenty of sleep as stress and fatigue cause increased production of hormones by the adrenal glands. 
  • Set aside fifteen or twenty minutes a day for de-stressing activities: meditation, yoga, simple walks or reading your favorite book may do the trick
  • Use the anti-inflammatory diet

Feed your skin with Autumn’s Happy Skin  Harvest. 

The common phrase, “you are what you eat," is very much so when it comes to clear glowing complexion. Autumn offers a bounty of delicious fruits and vegetables with nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy and strong but  we often don’t think of them as part of our efforts to protect and nourish the skin, but incredibly they do!

  • Pumpkin. Pumpkin is full of antioxidants and also provides moisture to the skin. This helps to keep our skin healthy and young and may prevent cancer according to the National Cancer Institute. We recommend our Pumpkin Mask for Acne-Prone Skin which can be used on all skin types but is best suited for those with sensitive and/or irritated skin. Take some time for yourself this Thanksgiving! Whip up one of these nourishing skin treatments and enjoy the results. Just like these masks, AcnEase® produces noticeable results.

  • Cranberry. This sweet colorful fruit is a fall favorite, and that’s good news for your complexion. Cranberries contain phytochemicals which have the power of anti-inflammatory properties to keep blemishes at bay. We also recommend our Cranberry Facial Scrub. This delicate scrub is good for reducing redness and inflammation and also contains nutrients that will smooth and moisturize the skin.
  • Sweet Potato. One reason those sweet potatoes are a super food is that they are full of free-radical fighting antioxidants. Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins A and C, both of which are known to play an important role in preventing and speeding healing of acne. This fruit also contains a low glycemic index which means it doesn't have a drastic impact on your blood sugar levels. Some research has indicated that spikes in your blood sugar can lead to inflammation, and as you already know, this condition primes your skin for acne breakouts. Additionally, sweet potatoes can replace squash in our face mask recipe if you've got some on hand. We also recommend our Sweet Potato Mask.

Don’t forget to eat your green leafy vegetables! These also help the acne fighting mission! Foods such as spinach, kale, cucumber, broccoli and collard greens are a great addition to your daily diet as they contain vitamins A, B, C, E, and much more, all doing their part in delivering a lively, glowing complexion.

Foods not only satisfy and fuel our bodies but can bring smooth clear looking skin. Lowering inflammation, eating more antioxidants, enhancing glutathione production and sleeping correctly, can fight acne at any time of the year. Take after the procedures above, but also practice everyday healthy eating and exercise.

Bonus Tip

Exfoliate and Moisturize Dry Flaky skin.

During the hot summer months, skin becomes dry due to the increasing amount of sun exposure resulting in a boost of melanin production. The top layer of your skin thickens which slows down the natural shedding of dead skin cells. Because of this, the skin will look extremely dull and lackluster.

To restore the barrier function, one must purchase moisturizing products, especially those fortified with niacinamide to nourish and smooth skin, restoring radiance. The oil flow in the skin during the summer months is still occurring at this time of year. Therefore, the sudsy cleanser may be a bit too harsh for fall. To prevent additional drying by indulging the skin with a soap-free face and body wash, that is also non-comedogenic. Exfoliation is critical during fall and winter months, as pore-clogging skin cells need to be sloughed away to keep breakouts at bay.

You are encouraged to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water per day to counteract the dehydrating effects of vacation.
