1. Wash your face daily
Cleanse your face twice a day daily with EVOHE Foam Wash. We recommend using our anti-bacterial bamboo face cloth when cleansing. The cloth is a gentle exfoliate and it will assist healthy skin renewal.
Avoid cheap foaming cleansers. Many foaming products (even those claiming to be “natural/organic”) often contain a synthetic version of coconut called Cocamidopropyl betaine. This is used commonly in foaming cleansers, as it is cheaper and foams/bubbles more easily than the natural version. The downside? Cocamidopropyl betaine is a synthetic surfactant; it will strip the skin of its natural oils (NOT ideal for acne prone skin!) and has been associated with irritation, allergic reactions and contact dermatitis.
EVOHE Foam Wash is 100% natural and does NOT contain cheap foaming agents. It’s the pump mechanism that helps this product to ‘foam’.
2. Don’t scrub
Whenever we get something we don’t want on our skin, our natural reaction is to scrub it until it goes away. However this is only going to make the problem worse. Instead of eliminating acne, excessive scrubbing can irritate the skin, causing ruptures to get even more inflamed, resulting in infection and possibly scarring.
As an alternative to harsh exfoliates, we recommend using EVOHE Silica Mask 2-3 times per week. Once the mask dries, gently use your fingertips to ‘buff’ away the powder. This removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, without aggravating your acne. Silica Mask can also be used as an overnight spot treatment to dry out your pimples!
After removing the mask with lukewarm water, be sure to lightly pat your face with a face towel – do not rub dry!
3. Don’t Dry Out Your Skin
Drink PLENTY of water, and moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! Dry skin can make matters worse – oil production might go into overdrive and this can affect the skin’s Ph levels.
We recommend EVOHE Repair Intensive as a daily moisturiser. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities of this product will soothe, reduce redness and nourish the skin. For extra hydration, add a pump of EVOHE 3.6.9 Omega – this will combat oiliness and balance the skin’s Ph levels.
