We’ve all experienced it, usually at a certain point in our monthly cycle: an explosion of tender FACIAL BLEMISHES that bring us back to our teenage days.
What’s the deal with hormones and blemishes? And more importantly, how can we minimize these breakouts?
In a nutshell, your sebaceous glands produce sebum, which is an oily substance. Sebum does have a useful purpose: it’s needed to moisturize the skin and hair. The problem comes in when a nearby hair follicle gets plugged. It can combine with other particles that are trapped by the pores and reproduce bacteria. This, in turn, leads to blemishes and outbreaks of the skin.
So how can your monthly cycle affect your skin? The answer lies in hormone levels. Testosterone levels trigger the sebaceous glands and their sebum production. Progesterone can also make your skin oilier. These hormones both tend to be at high levels about a week before your cycle starts, so week four of your monthly cycle can start off with that annoying, potentially embarrassing, explosion of blemishes.
The TOPICAL BLEND helps reduce breakouts and promotes a clear complexion. This blend contains the cleansing power of Melaleuca (renowned for its blemish-fighting properties) as well as Black Cumin, Ho Wood, Litsea, Eucalyptus, and Geranium Essential Oils.
It comes in a 10 ml roller bottle for easy and convenient spot-treatment application. For sensitive skin, dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil or carrier oil of your choice.
If your monthly breakouts require more than spot treatment, the TOPICAL BLEND FACIAL KIT can give you some extra support. It consists of three products: The TOPICAL BLEND that we already talked about, the FOAMING FACE WASH, and a FACIAL LOTION. These products are all made from natural plant extracts and Essential Oils.
The TOPICAL BLEND FOAMING FACE WASH contains the same skin-cleansing Essential Oils found in the Topical Blend plus other natural plant extracts such as Licorice Root, White Willow Bark, Magnolia, and Manuka. It is nourishing and soothing, and you can use it every day for your face washing routine or supplement it during weeks you anticipate more problem skin.
The TOPICAL BLEND FACIAL LOTION is hydrating and skin-nourishing. It purifies skin and, as a bonus, also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps promote improved skin texture and reduces the appearance of blemishes. It’s a great tool to hydrate your skin without clogging pores.
Something extra to love about the TOPICAL BLEND in any of its three forms is that it’s hydrating. Many other skin products meant to help with blemishes dry out and/or irritate skin, but the Essential Oils and plant extracts found in this blend are cleansing, soothing, and hydrating.
These products work great individually but using them together as a three-step facial-cleansing system can be even more effective. Start by cleansing your face with the FOAMING FACE WASH, then follow with the FACIAL LOTION and spot-treating problem areas with the TOPICAL BLEND roller.
