What Causes The Skin To Glow AND Break Out?

It's a natural anti-depressant and helps you lose weight. It's also a fantastic way to get glowing, beautiful skin. It's exercise!

I think we can all agree that exercise is a crucial part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Not only is it great for keeping your body fit, but it also boosts circulation and promotes a luminous glow in the skin. What could be more amazing?!

On the flipside, sweat is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria... and bacteria can lead to acne breakouts. This explains why you might experience more body acne after starting a more intense workout regimen OR when you've worn non-breathable fabric. The key to preventing the acne-and-exercise cycle is to properly cleanse the skin immediately after exercising. A quick splash of water won’t cut it. Make sure you choose a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer that are right for your skin type:

Dry Skin Orange Cleansing Soap, Glycolic Acid Toner, and Hydrating Moisturizer with Biocare & Hyaluronic Acid

Oily Skin Botanical Facial Gel, Special Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and Oil-Free Moisturizer

Combination/Oily Skin Enzyme Cleansing Gel, Cucumber Cleansing Lotion, and A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer

Combination/Dry Skin Seaweed Cleansing Soap, Seaweed Cleansing Lotion, and Honey Moisturizer

Sensitive Skin Cream Soap, Aloe Vera Toner, and Buttermilk Moisturizer

If breakouts do strike, try the following spot treatments according to each specific blemish type:

Whiteheads Drying Lotion

Blackheads Silver Powder

Cystic Acne Buffering Lotion

Other Pimples Drying Cream

If you are already prone to breaking out, apply our Flower & Tonic Mask once or twice a week to help detoxify your skin.
