No one hates a breakout more than we do, but we also understand that blemishes are a very NORMAL part of having skin. Everyone at some point in their life has experienced a surprise blemish or two. So, you are definitely not alone. One thing key to remember is that it's OK to break out.
Acne has become such a shameful subject for many with sensitive skin and we feel you! It’s bad enough that acne naturally makes you feel insecure about your skin, but it doesn’t mean your skin underneath the blemishes doesn’t have incredible POTENTIAL.
Breakouts are a normal part of life. Some have them more frequently than others, but that doesn’t mean you should feel any less confident. Your skin is beautiful!
Here at Jade Alycia Beauty, we aren’t afraid of breakouts because we know it happens. And we also understand that your skin isn’t going to be perfect all the time. That’s why we don’t focus on highlighting imperfections but more so on how to overcome them in an empowering way. We want to help build you up and not knock you back down. Here are three simple steps to knocking out your blemishes!
STEP 1: Use A Face Mist
Face mists can be sprayed to help with many different skin issues, but here we're aiming the focus on treating acne. We recommend grabbing a bottle of our Tea Tree Rose Soothing Face Mist to generously mist your face twice daily. Once in the morning after cleansing and then again at night. Our all-natural formula helps to reduce redness, the size of your blemish and inflammation.
STEP 2: Apply A Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer is the best way to help medicate and maintain your skin without drying it out or causing further irritation. Plus, breakouts tend to dissolve faster when properly treated, that's why we highly recommend trying out our best-selling Calendula Nourishing Day Face Moisturizer. This creamy moisturizer gives your skin the expedited healing and added support it needs, whether you're battling blemishes or looking flawless. All you need is a single application in the morning. At night, allow your skin to rest. Your pores will naturally absorb all the good stuff it contains and root out all the impurities your skin may be holding onto.
STEP 3: Invest In a Good Face Oil
Face oils are a complete gem when it comes to combating face and body acne. Most people think oils will only cause you to break out even more, but not so! Let us introduce you to our Jojoba Restorative Face & Body Oil , the J FAM likes to call it liquid gold. There are endless benefits to having this oil in your skincare arsenal as noted in 8 Benefits Of Using Jojoba Oil On Your Skin, but just to highlight a few; this vegan oil-blend helps to speed up the healing process for wounds, scars and acne, hydrates the skin, aids in balancing hyperpigmentation and regulates oil production. Simply use one to two drops as a spot treatment or as an all-over face application either in the morning or at night.
All of our all-natural skincare products are formulated to pamper sensitive skin types through every surprise breakout as well as every blemish-free moment. You can pick up all three of these acne fighters mentioned above in steps 1 to 3 in our all-in-one Blemish Be Gone Kit.

WHAT IS A BREAKOUT?
A breakout is your body's way of getting rid of toxins that build-up.
HOW DO BREAKOUTS FORM?
A breakout occurs when a hair follicle or pore gets clogged with dead skin cells, natural oils produced by the skin and sometimes bacteria. This content slowly makes its way up to the skin's surface through your pores forming a blemish commonly with a white or black head.
HOW DO YOU GET RID OF ACNE NATURALLY?
The best way to get rid of acne naturally is by carefully treating it with all-natural or vegan-friendly skincare products that target the symptoms you are currently experiencing. Also, avoid picking at or popping the blemish as that will only prolong the healing process.
HOW DO YOU CLEAR UP ACNE FAST?
The quickest way to remedy a blemish is to gently treat it with a natural astringent like witch hazel that has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties followed by an acne fighter product that contains powerful healing properties such as Jojoba oil.
HOW DO YOU GET RID OF ACNE SCARS?
Naturally, when one thinks of ridding their skin of acne scars it is easy to assume that a fading cream or exfoliator is the answer here. Not so! At Jade Alycia Beauty we recommend simply using our Lavender Chamomile Healing Face Mist and our Vanilla Aloe Hydrating Night Face Moisturizer to restore the skin and fade away dark spots.
DOES ACNE GO AWAY NATURALLY?
Yes, blemishes have the potential to naturally dissolve themselves if not touched or further irritated however, that is much easier said than done. We recommend not picking or popping your blemish to prevent scaring. Instead, cleanse the area with a gentle face wash like our Coconut Mint Rejuvenating Face Wash to open up your pores. Apply our Witch Hazel Clarifying Toner followed by a bit of our best-selling Calendula Nourishing Day Face Moisturizer and a few drops of our top-rated Jojoba Restorative Face & Body Oil.
HOW DO YOU GET RID OF ACNE OVERNIGHT?
For the best overnight results, we recommend using our Witch Hazel Clarifying Face Toner with our Jojoba Restorative Face & Body Oil. The vegan-friendly duo will help to reduce redness, inflammation and the size of your breakout literally while you sleep.
WHAT CAUSES ACNE ON THE FACE & BODY?
Acne forms from several causes; excessive oil production, dead skin cells clogging pores or bacteria. All of which cause breakouts on your face and body.
