Studies have found that between 40-55% of adults between 20 and 40 years old suffer from persistent, adult acne.

Different people may experience different types of acne, breakouts and oily skin and for different reasons too.

Acne skin symptoms

When skin produces too much oil, it mixes with dead skin in the pore and forms a clog that causes the pore to expand. If the oil becomes trapped by dead skin, it oxidises and forms a blackhead.

It's not just a teen-skin issue

Acne and oily skin is one of the worst and most common skin problems in the world. Although acne is generally associated with teenagers and puberty, the fact is that you can get spots at any age.

Keep your skin routine simple

Exfoliation is vital if you struggle with oily or acne skin, but you must choose the right one, as over-exfoliating with harsh products can aggravate and make your acne worse.

Removing impurities and keeping pores clear will help your skin to breathe so your skin will start to balance too. Try Radiance Face Scrub which is creamy and leaves skin super soft and balanced.

Many people may not be aware that their improper hygiene is a major contributor to acne and oily skin. Examples of improper hygiene that can cause acne include using unclean makeup brushes, sleeping on dirty pillowcases, and touching your face with dirty hands. If you’re not sure what’s causing your acne, you may want to step back and consider whether or not your daily hygiene may be a contributing factor.


Nourish it. Care for it. Feed it.

Feeding your skin from within will help your skin dramatically. If you have oily/acne prone skin, make sure you’re drinking plenty of water, eating good fats and reducing or cutting out dairy and minimising sugar.

You can also try taking a supplement to support hormonal balance; these can include evening primrose oil and Ashwagandha.
