L'ATHENE offers a complete natural skincare regimen... to help calm skin, clean and reduce oil without stimulating inflammation. Acne-prone skin is a medical condition characterized by excessive and non-resolving breakouts affecting teens and adults. The goal for acne-prone skin is to keep the skin clean and free of contaminates as much as possible and to treat problem areas promptly.

Keep Skin Clean and Clear... and Avoid Skin Irritants

Individuals with oilier skin tend to have larger pores. Pore size is enlarged by build up of dirt, dead skin cells and oil. Toners are virtually ineffective at helping with pore size and oftentimes cause oil rebound which leads to more oil. Mineral clays help to clear the excess oil, dirt and dead cells from deep within the pores. Two to three times a week use CLARIFIQUE Purifying Clay Mask to filter and lift these impurities. Also, it is helpful to spot treat with the mask on problem areas and sleep in it up to every other night.

Treat Breakouts Promptly

Breakouts need proper attention. Whether you are treating breakouts with a medicated cream from the dermatologist or using CLARIFIQUE Purifying Clay Mask, it is important to treat the breakouts as soon as you feel them coming on. Do not pick, poke, squeeze or push on any breakouts. This can lead to scarring that can be very difficult to treat later.

Additional Information

Be Consistent

If you are using L'ATHENE products, dermatologist-prescribed products or a combination of both, it is critical that you are consistent in following the directions and consistent in doing the regime. For the best results, make your skin care regime become a habit and a priority, and you will notice positive changes over time. Acne does not resolve instantly and not sticking with a routine can be a big factor to your success in regaining a smooth and blemish-free complexion.

Acne can occur on the face, neck, chest and back. Oil glands in the skin produce oil (sebum) that serves as protection for us. This oil can become excessive and become trapped causing blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. Cysts or nodules can form.

Adults can be prone to acne when going through life changes. This is particularly true for women in their late 30's and 40's who are going through hormonal changes. Although this condition is not life-threatening, it can be emotionally upsetting and, if not treated, disfiguring. Seeing a dermatologist when other treatments are not effective is the ideal way to treat acne.
