3 Simple Ways to Prevent Breakouts

1. Wash your face daily

Cleanse your face twice a day daily. We recommend using EVOHE Bamboo Face Cloth when cleansing that has gentle exfoliation to assist with 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. Try EVOHE Foam Wash – with no synthetics.

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 a mask 2-3 times per week such as Silica Mask. The Silica Mask is great for this as it is removed by gently buffing the skin, also removing dead skin cells form the surface of your skin, without aggravating your acne. It 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.

      Hi Jaysee, EVOHE is a very intuitive range so you can use the products you feel work for you. Using the Cleanse on it's own is fine. You can always use the Foam Wash as a double cleanse for any residual oiliness.
