Nurturing Your Skin: Managing Adult Acne with Nature's Best Ingredients

Dealing with adult acne can be a challenging & frustrating experience. However, finding an effective & gentle skincare routine can help you regain control & nurture your skin. Today, we will explore helpful ingredients to watch for in your skincare, including Hempheart Oil, Green Tea, Kawakawa & Kakadu Plum. These natural elements offer promising benefits for managing acne while providing gentle care for your skin.

  1. Hempheart Oil: Derived from the seeds of the Hempheart plant, Hempheart Oil has gained popularity in recent years due to its rich nutritional profile. When it comes to skincare, Hempheart Oil offers several benefits. Its anti-inflammatory properties can help calm irritated skin & reduce redness associated with acne. Additionally, its lightweight texture makes it suitable for all skin types, including oily & acne-prone skin. Hempheart Oil is also known to regulate oil production & is non-comedogenic, preventing clogged pores & further breakouts.

  2. Green Tea: Green tea, a staple in many cultures & is a fantastic skincare ingredient. Packed with antioxidants, green tea helps protect the skin from free radicals, which can contribute to acne development. It also possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can calm existing breakouts & reduce redness. Additionally, green tea has been found to help regulate sebum production, preventing excessive oiliness. 

  3. Kawakawa: Originating from the native forests of New Zealand, Kawakawa has long been treasured for its medicinal properties. Its leaves, when used in skincare, offer an array of benefits for those struggling with adult acne. Kawakawa possesses antimicrobial properties that combat acne-causing bacteria, helping to reduce breakouts. Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory nature soothes & calms irritated skin, promoting a more balanced complexion. 

  4. Kakadu Plum: Known as a superfood for the skin, Kakadu Plum is a small fruit native to Australia. Bursting with Vitamin C (the most Vitamin C found within one source from nature), this powerhouse ingredient brightens the skin, promotes collagen production & helps fade acne scars. Its antioxidant properties aid in reducing inflammation & soothing acne-prone skin. Kakadu plum also helps protect the skin from environmental stressors that can exacerbate acne. 

The above ingredients can be amazing for managing adult acne & the redness & inflammation that can come along with it. This is one of the many reasons that Hark & Zander has chosen to put them into so many of our products. Hempheart Oil is in every one of our products, while Kakadu Plum & Kawkawa are in our HempBright Face the Day Crème & Green Tea is in our HempHydrate Refreshing Gel Toner. Creating a routine that involves all of these products (such as our Get Up & Glow Morning Ritual) ensures that you are getting as much goodness as possible into your skin each day.

Alongside using great products, it is important to ensure that you are drinking enough water each day to maintain hydrated & healthy skin. Additionally, poor sleep can contribute to your skin's condition & leave it looking dull & more prone to breakouts. Be sure to get enough rest for your body & routine, as well as regularly swapping out your pillowcases. For an extra touch of antimicrobial luxury, you could even opt for a satin or silk pillowcase!

It is important to remember that skincare is a journey, different for each individual & no one product or routine will have the exact same effect on everyone. Have fun experimenting & finding out what works best for your skin & routine!
