What Causes Breakouts?
Breakouts are tricky, as there are many triggers. So lets cover a few common ones, but when in doubt seek a certified health professional. The 2 most common causes for breakouts are excess sebum oil and clogged pores. Dermatology research shows increasing hormone levels can negatively affect sebum production levels, thus causing breakouts. Alcohols + fragrance can irritate breakout-prone skin. Let's look at a few natural remedies to help.
Masking isn't just for selfies, the benefits are endless. With so many different options such as: clay, gel, peel-off, foam, etc. it can be difficult to choose from. But everything you need for a face mask is right in your kitchen! Try 1 of these quick + easy DIYs down below to help reduce your breakouts:
2 Tbsp Aloe Vera Gel
1 Tsp Bentonite Clay (Fuller's Earth)
1/3 Cup Ground Oats
1 Tbsp. Raw Honey
1 Tbsp. Hemp Oil (Other options: Safflower Oil or Argan Oil)

*Tips: Whole oats are okay but can be more difficult to apply. Make sure to rinse off in small circular motions. This creates a mild exfoliation and will remove dead skin.
