Many people with oily, blemish-prone skin worry about using any moisturizer, but would never dream of using an oil-based product. Oil-based products will actually help balance the sebum in your skin and help your skin from overproducing more of it. Remember to always cleanse and tone your skin before you apply your moisturizer. If your skin isn’t clean before you apply your moisturizer, all the dirt and toxins on your skin will remain blocked in your pores!
Don't Panic if a breakout happens when you begin detoxing your skin
with an organic skincare line
It isn't unusual to have a small breakout when switching to an organic product line and oil-based products. Don't panic and think oil based is not for you. Keep using the products as instructed and you will notice the breakout quickly goes away and your skin looks better and more clear than ever, with less future breakouts.
Myth: The sun heals my acne
Contrary to popular belief, sunbathing and tanning salons aren't healing your acne, it's actually making it worse. What happens is, as your face gets red from the sun, it makes any breakouts you might already have blend in, creating the appearance of clearer skin. But what's really going on is the sun is causing your skin to dry out and triggering more oil production, which can lead to more zits.
Rosacea - Acne-like breakouts can occur with rosacea-primarily on and around the nose, cheeks and forehead. They typically begin to happen between the ages of 30-50.
What can you do?
Hormonal changes and acne -
Hormonal changes at adolescence can trigger a process of higher sebum production and lead to breakouts.
For women, hormonal changes relating to pregnancy or the menstrual cycle can also trigger acne. Falling estrogen levels may increase the risk of acne around menopause.
What can you do? Use cleansers with Activated Charcoal.
More severe forms of acne -
Nodules and cysts are considered inflammatory type acne, are more serious and should be treated by a doctor.
Nodules are hard, painful, inflamed lumps located deep within the skin. This type of acne lesion develops when clogged pores damage tissues and cells deep beneath the skin's surface.
Always see a doctor or dermatologist about nodules and cysts, because these require medical care.
Untreated nodules and cysts and those that have been picked or popped can cause scarring.

We all know our skin ages, sometimes faster than we would like. There are two main reasons our skin ages known as Intrinsic and Extrinsic aging.
Intrinsic or Genetics - contribute to how fast we age. Most of us show signs of aging in our late 40's to early 50's.
Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.
Free radical and sun damage accounts for 90% of early signs of aging. Seriously, it's that high!
