The right facial care for blemished skin: What you need to know

Blemished skin comes as a result of hyperactive sebaceous and sweat glands. As a result, the skin is usually oily, with a greasy shine, and tends to blemish. Even though aggressive care products containing too much alcohol are tempting when your skin is stressed, follow these clever beauty rules as part of your daily routine: “Clarify but don’t overdo it!” This page tells you what you should pay attention to in your daily and weekly skin care routine.

This eventually causes new blemishes to appear and the cycle starts all over again... What used to be considered almost exclusively a typical teenage issue has unfortunately become widespread beyond the age of 30 in recent years: An increasing number of adults now suffer from “adult acne”. 

Possible causes include hormonal changes (e.g. from various forms of contraception, pregnancy, giving birth, menopause), external environmental factors and stress, as well as a handful of other reasons.

Pure intentions! The perfect cosmetics for blemished skin

To break this cycle, it’s important for blemished skin that you use the right care products that aren’t too aggressive. Incorrect, overly drying or – in contrast – intensive care often leads the pores to clog further, which can cause new blemishes to appear. Your skincare cream should not be too greasy, as this can lead pores that are already large to close up and put them under stress.

Skin has to be able to breathe and loves gentle, moisturising nourishment, which simultaneously gives the skin a clear, even appearance and refines the pores without irritating your skin.

The right facial care for blemished skin

A care routine that combines clarifying and moisturising products is especially effective for blemished skin and acne. A water-based moisturising fluid or a gel with a light texture that does not close the pores unnecessarily is therefore recommended for this skin type. 

Ingredients that provide vigorous moisturising and refine the pores are the best for nourishing blemished and greasy skin. To prevent new blemishes and blackheads, you can pamper your skin once a week with a purifying mask.

Fine exfoliating masks that leave your skin feeling silky smooth are ideal for this, as well as comfortable sheet masks that you simply place on your face – time to relax! While you rest, the purifying natural care substances get to work and help improve your skin’s appearance.

Facial cleansing – Regularity is key

Read more Read less

For your daily “washing regime”, we recommend using oil-free products that cleanse thoroughly and rid your skin of excess sebum, dirt and make-up residues without irritating it. What is especially important here? Regularity. Greasy skin in particular should be washed twice a day. This works best with mild face cleansers that don't remove too much oil from your skin or strain it unnecessarily - otherwise its sensitive balance will be upset even more.

The ideal cleansing product for blemished skin is a refreshing cleansing gel that thoroughly removes dirt and make-up and provides soothing freshness. In the second step, the toner vigorously clarifies your skin and prepares it perfectly for the next step in the care routine.

Gentle abrasion

Your skin will appreciate a gentle, clarifying exfoliation once or twice a week. For the sake of your skin and the environment, you should opt for an exfoliator that does not contain microplastics. Products containing jojoba exfoliating particles that cleanse your pores and gently remove dead skin cells are a great natural alternative.

Remember: Even if you suffer from spots or acne, you should not rub your skin with the fine exfoliating particles too much. More is not always more: To avoid irritating your skin further, you shouldn’t use exfoliator too often and definitely don’t use it every day.
