Oily & Spot Skin
Over the past decade, acne and spots have become more and more resistant to treatment. Pimples, comedones, whiteheads, blackheads and pustules are all part of the spot spectrum. They can also present as cysts on the face & body and leave severe scarring. Acne or spots, though more common during teenage years, can occur at almost any age, it can also affect people for the first time in their thirties or even later in life.
Dermatologists are concerned with how the drugs that are being prescribed are ineffective in most cases and the public are worried about steroids causing long term damage
i.e. thinning skin and even panda like patches of discolouration caused by using products with such common ingredients of Benzoyl Peroxide which is bleach and will have a permanent effect.
Basically the cause of spots & acne is abnormalities with the sebaceous gland, caused by hormones, like androgens, thyroxine, oestrogens, progesterone which can increase the secretion of sebum, the excess sebum produced causes an increase in oiliness of the skin and then things start to get out of hand because this becomes a breeding ground for bacteria resulting in inflammation. This is all made a lot worse by high street products which use chemicals or alcohols to kill or wash away the oil and that often results in the skin producing even more oil and thus the cycle goes on and on.
Then the use of excessive cosmetics to cover up the problem also block the pores and stimulate the production of sebum even more, leaving even more debris on the skin which makes things look terrible and many people do not know how to get out of this vicious circle and loose hope because they feel like nothing ever works for them.
We here at essentially yours have produced products without all the harsh chemicals so straight away there’s zero long term problems, our products don’t dry out the skin, (a big problem when using products with alcohols or harsh chemicals) Our products only contain essential oils and plant extracts which work in harmony with the glands within the skin to keep infection down & purifying thus bringing ph balance and order.
