Understanding your skin to treat it effectively

Acne pimples and blemishes & anti-acne cream

Acne-prone skin is characterized by oily, thick skin with irregular texture, enlarged pores and imperfections. The real cause of acne is the hyper-production of sebum, which blocks the pores of the skin and then causes pimples.

Sebum is a fatty film secreted by the sebaceous glands called hydrolipidic film. It maintains skin hydration. In addition, it gives it flexibility and helps protect it. Sebum is therefore essential for the health and beauty of your skin, but be careful of excess sebum! See our acne advice.

Often, to get rid of this seborrhea, there is a strong temptation to want to strip your skin with products that are too aggressive. But this is only counterproductive. When attacked, your skin will defend itself by producing more sebum! Therefore, it is important to use well-suited products. They will be able to regulate sebum production while providing moisturizing care to your skin (see homemade anti-acne masks).


How to choose your cream among all the anti-acne creams?

Certainly, there are a multitude of mattifying creams but some are absolutely not indicated. Due to their composition and/or functioning, they fight against excess sebum, but by drying out your skin.


Anti-acne creams: watch out for components that dry out the skin!

Some mattifying creams use sulfated hyper-degreasing agents or even alcohol. Certainly, these components help eliminate sebum, but they also dry out the skin (see the 6 misconceptions about acne). In addition to being dehydrated, the skin is deprived of sebum, its natural defense against external aggressions. In principle, the skin will then produce large quantities of sebum to defend itself.

Alcohols are classified into several categories. On the one hand, the good alcohols, the fatty alcohols which will contribute to hydration. On the other hand, bad alcohols which will dry out the skin. In fact, this is the case for denatured alcohol found under the names “alcohol denat” or “alcohol” in INCI formulations.


Limit sebum production VS prevent sebum from coming out

In this regard, many mattifying creams fight against sebum but do not regulate its production. They deposit a waterproof film on the skin, based on mineral oils and waxes derived from petroleum or silicones. As a result, the skin no longer shines but it no longer breathes. And this is how pimples and imperfections appear. This is the very definition of ingredients comedogenic. In addition to being harmful to your skin, these components pollute the environment.

Therefore, a good mattifying cream should regulate the production of sebum, and not prevent it from coming out. Its role is to purify your skin and above all to provide hydration to your skin.
