How to tackle acne (from the inside and out)
When suffering from acne as a teenager, there are so many products and treatments to choose from. But as an adult? Not so much. Which is surprising considering 35 per cent of women and 50 per cent men suffer from the skin condition*. Blemishes and pimples during adult years can usually be linked to hormonal changes, so in order to clear up your skin, you have to work from the inside and out - something that’s often overlooked when it comes to acne remedies.
The new Qsilica Naturally CLEAR range helps do exactly that, with a natural, holistic regimen formulated to soothe irritated skin and clear blemishes. The three-step treatment works both internally and topically, helping to cleanse skin and address and repair the symptoms of acne.
Want to know how it works? We thought so!
The first step in any skin routine is of course, to cleanse. Qsilica Naturally CLEAR Cleanser is a gentle, yet effective cleanser, formulated to externally remove all traces of dirt, make-up, dead skin cells and oil on your skin. As mentioned above, you also have to address what’s going on inside your body, which is where the Qsilica Naturally CLEAR Skin Support Tablets come into play. The tablets work to detoxify, cleanse and purify your blood internally, using herbal extracts of barberry, burdock roots and green tea. So now your skin is reaping the benefits of a thorough cleanse on the outside with the cleanser, and the support tablets are helping to cleanse your insides too.
As for targeting surface blemishes and pimples, Qsilica Naturally CLEAR Spot Gel and the Skin Support Tablets are another powerful duo. The Spot Gel is applied to the affected area to kill pimple-causing bacteria and remove dead skin cells with the help of salicylic acid, willow herb, mineral silica and tea tree extracts. And while it’s working to reduce the appearance of blemishes on the surface, the Skin Support Tablets you’ve already taken are offering aid on the inside to support normal hormone function through androgen regulation and using antioxidants to assist the body’s free radical defences.
The third internal step of the Skin Support Tablets (one little tablet does a lot, right?!) is to promote skin healing through cellular support and to assist skin repair with the help of vitamin A and zinc. Remember the Cleanser and Spot Treatment do their bit too, also containing soothing and nurturing ingredients. If you’re worried about the Cleanser potentially drying out your skin, fear not! It’s formulated with vitamin E, jojoba oil and mineral silica to help rebalance your skin and help it retain its natural moisturiser. And as for the Spot Gel, it utilises the naturally-soothing extracts of aloe vera and cucumber to calm irritated skin as it fights blemishes.
What sets Qsilica apart from other acne treatments is that it approaches breakouts a different way, working with your body to return balance, as well as delivering the right ingredients to your skin. All three products play a part in helping to regain beautiful skin and give you confidence, plus they can be purchased in the one handy pack - Qsilica Naturally CLEAR Blemish Control Kit.
Top tip: If you’re a bride-to-be and want to avoid the stress of a breakout as you plan your wedding, the Qsilica Naturally CLEAR range is a great routine to use in the lead up to your big day. Nothing like a last minute pimple to cause a freak out!
