How do I get rid of pimples?

Keep your skin scrupulously clean, but be gentle with it.  Do not scrub and do not be tempted to use harsh products that dry out the skin.  These will only make your skin produce more sebum to counteract the dryness, thus making the problem worse. Cleanse with a gentle cleanser morning and evening, tone and apply a Treatment Gel.

Another important thing is to avoid washing your face with your fingers: you might have bacteria under your nails that can spread to your face, and you won’t get enough exfoliation either. So, along with our Purifying Cleanser we recommend using a cleansing face brush.  They are fantastic, but if you don’t want to invest in a cleansing brush, you can use a muslin cloth, flannel or cotton pads - always use a clean one each time.

A lot of people will simply spot treat but if you’re just doing that, you’re not treating the acne, you’re treating the spot - the acne will just appear in a different spot. So, if you need additional treatment, put it on the area where you’re breaking out. For example, if your breakouts are only on your chin, put a thin layer of  Treatment Gel all over your chin area.

For those of you with adult acne, retinol is great.  We would therefore recommend using our Rejuvenating Serum.

Diet is also important.  Cut down on sugar and fats and eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.  Eat ‘clean’ proteins such as fish, walnuts and flaxseed.  Basically you want to eat Omega 3 proteins and avoid Omega 6.
