The Truth Behind Acne: Why Topical Skincare is Not Enough & How to Address the Root Cause

Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages, but for many, the treatment is only skin deep. The use of topical skincare products, like creams and gels, may provide temporary relief, but it does not address the underlying cause of the condition. In fact, overuse of cosmetic products and makeup can even make the condition worse. The key to healing acne is to look beyond the surface and address the root cause from within.

The root cause of acne can vary from person to person, but the most common factors include hormonal imbalances, unhealthy diets, stress, and gut issues. Therefore, to truly heal acne, one must adopt a healthy and balanced lifestyle that addresses these underlying factors. You cannot treat a symptom (acne) from the outside with skincare that is rooted on the inside. Acne only shows you that something inside your body is not functioning the way it should.

On top of that most skincare products contain harmful substances like micro plastics, benzene and phenylmethane etc. that mess with for example your hormones.

In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, reducing exposure to toxins and harmful chemicals is also essential. This means switching to non-toxic and natural skincare products, as well as limiting exposure to environmental pollutants. Simple is often best when it comes to skincare, so opt for a routine that includes as little makeup as possible and focuses on using only the most natural products.

It's also important to note that the healing process can take time, and results may not be immediate. However, by making these changes and sticking to a consistent routine, the skin will begin to heal and clear up. The key is to be patient and persistent in the pursuit of a healthy and clear complexion.

Now, that does not mean to never use any skincare again or that you cannot opt for that NYX bomb ass foundation. You sure, can, but limit the frequency you use these products and make sure you opt for natural brands where you can. You don't need that fancy cleanser that lathers your face in chemical foam just to be left with a weakened skin barrier. Also, there are good chemical skincare products that really support the healing process you have to start from within. Like hyaluronic acid to support the hydration barrier of your skin.

Treating acne from the inside out is the key to true healing. This means adopting a healthy lifestyle, switching to non-toxic skincare, and limiting exposure to harmful toxins. With patience and persistence, the skin will clear up, revealing a healthy and glowing complexion.
