For those of us with sensitive skin, breakouts have become a regular part of our every day and as much as we’re used to them, we can never really embrace them. Luckily for us, Neuth France have recently released a full anti-acne range that promises to help fight off these little monsters on our faces in just 5 steps. Let us walk you through their recommended anti-acne routine.
A cleanser that will effectively exfoliate and purify your skin, the Anti-Acne Absolute Purifying Exfoliator combines salicylic acid and palmetto extract to seamlessly unclog your pores and remove all impurities and dead skin cells. It also foams very gently and won’t feel harsh on your already sensitive skin. Just massage it in a circular motion on a wet face for 1 to 2 minutes, then rinse well. This is a great product to use 2 to 3 times a week, at most, and will help regulate sebum production whilst clearing your skin.
A super gentle, soap-free cleansing gel, this is the perfect way to start prepping your face everyday. It will wash away all impurities, excess sebum and acne-causing substances, leaving your skin clean and well protected. Another great thing about this facial wash is that it has deep moisturizing effects, giving you shine-free, breathable skin all day. Lather a small amount of the cleansing gel into your hands and then apply it to a wet face. Massage it through using your fingertips with light circular movements, then rinse. It can be used up to 3 times daily, a great way to freshen your face up during the middle of the day.
A necessary step we’ve learned to always include in our routine is applying toner. As the name suggests, this toner will minimize your pores, reducing the production of sebum and in turn, mattifying that extra shine. By balancing your skin’s pH levels, your face will feel more clear, bright and soothed. After cleansing your face, moisten a cotton pad with the toner, wipe your face to remove any stubborn excess dirt and dead skin cells. (No need to rinse it off)
This high-performance concentrate gives impressive results on active acne at a deeper level to fight the source of where acne breakouts emerge. Infused with bakuchiol, saw palmetto, salicylic acid, vitamin E and niacinamide, this powerhouse of formula works instantly to visibly reduce the number, size and pain of acne breakouts. Bakuchiol is the first natural, effective alternative to retinol for acne-prone skin; it regulates sebum production, inhibits the activity of bacteria and fungi in active acne and prevents the post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Use this product day and night by applying a thin layer of the cream on affected areas and massaging it until it’s fully absorbed.
Last but not least, sunscreen! This lightweight, long-lasting formula will absorb quickly, leaving you with an anti-shine finish. We love a sunscreen that protects our skin from UVA and UVB sun rays and has healing benefits like controlling and minimizing acne breakouts, as in the case of this one. Apply it on your face directly after your moisturizer or 15 minutes before sun exposure.
