PROBLEM: ACNE (All types)
Avoid products that cause redness and irritation as a side effect such as sodium laurel sulphate, which can cause break outs resulting in painful whiteheads, and harsh acids like salicylic acid can dry out the skin. Use a cleansing oil to help restore the skin's natural barrier and help decrease redness and sensitivity. It might sound counterintuitive to use an oil to deal with oily or acne-prone skin, but it is the most effective method for breaking up blackheads, grime, makeup, and any other impurities on the the skin and in the pores.
Directions: First take a half dropper of CHILL under the tongue and hold for 60 seconds before swallowing. This allows the CBD to be absorbed through the tiny blood vessels under the tongue. (This is the most powerful thing you can do to combat the internal inflammation causing all your skin troubles). Then rub a full dropper of GRIT Cleansing Oil in your hands and while the skin is still dry, gently massage onto your face for at least two minutes (or leave the oil on the skin for up to 10 minutes to really deep clean pores). This will remove all traces of makeup (even the toughest mascara), dirt, sebum, and any other impurities leaving your skin soft, clean, and supple. Concentrate on trouble areas and anywhere that needs make-up removal. Next take a hot damp cloth and place over your face. This will create steam against the skin to remove the oils and any impurities in the skin and gently wipe off the excess oil. There will still be a thin layer of oil left on the skin and this is beneficial. Follow with the ICE Rosewater Toner and then the SAVAGE Booster Oil. For most effective results, we recommend you stop using any other cleansers, moisturizers or anti-acne creams while using this treatment. This will only confuse your oil glands and cause them to produce excess oil. Your oil production will normalize after approx two weeks and your skin will clear up and feel ultra smooth and supple … like it was naturally meant to be!
Problem: Premature Aging
One of the main reasons for the damage and premature aging of the skin is UV radiation, and it is impossible to escape from it. Coming from the sun, it is believed to cause up to 90% of skin aging signs including wrinkles, roughness, sagginess, skin thickening and dark spots. The sun also emits other types of harmful light, such as infrared and blue light, which penetrate deeper in the dermis and which regular sunscreens do not protect us from. Blue light can also be found indoors, since it is artificially produced by electronic devices such as computers, TVs, smartphones and tablets. The UV Protection Oil contains natural plant-based compounds that help to protect and repair the skin from solar and artificial blue light-induced damage, minimizing the signs of photoaging. * Please note, this is not a SPF product.
First assess the depth of the pigmentation to find the appropriate treatments. It may be that, although acne inflammation triggered the pigmentation, other factors are exacerbating the problem such as internal inflammation. To address this, take a half dropper of the CHILL Sublingual Oil and hold under the tongue for 60 seconds before swallowing. Ongoing preventive measures should be taken to reduce making the problem worse by using UV / blue light protection oil that blocks the production of melanin. Pair it with a super-concentrated antioxidant oil to protect against free radical damage from UV and pollution that can cause skin pigmentation. Continue for at least 2 weeks to start seeing some results. At best, you may expect the spots may get lighter. At worst, hyperpigmentation does not increase.
Much like dry skin, it's important to avoid products that contain alcohol, essential oils and any ingredients that will aggravate or strip your skin. A salve rich in ultra-moisturing sunflower seed oil, evening primrose and calendula will keep the skin hydrated and soothed. Keep in mind, there are several different types of eczema and it is always best to consult your GP or a dermatologist when it comes to treating severe cases or introducing new products into your routine.
Problem: Cold sores
Unfortunately, once a cold sore develops there is little you can do, except minimize the spread. The best approach, especially if you have suffered with cold sores in the past, is prevention. Avoid exposure to excessive sunlight, stress, fatigue and caffeine. At the first sign of break out, take a full dropper of the CHILL Sublingual Oil and apply the BLAZE Body Balm directly on the area, which may help prevent a full on break out. If you already have the cold sore, take the sublingual oil and apply the balm onto the sore to soothe and help accelerate the healing process.
Problem: Vulvar Irritations
There are many causes of vulvar irritations that can result in extreme itching, rawness, stinging, burning, and pain. The most common one is contact dermatitis caused by the chemicals in soaps, perfumes or synthetic fabrics. Immediately stop using the products causing the irritations and start moisturizing the skin around your vulva. There are many benefits to doing this. It may decrease skin irritations during your period. It will help women who suffer from painful intercourse or vaginal dryness. For women nearing or experiencing menopause, there is a decline in estrogen, which can lead to dryness and increased vulvar irritations. Moisturizing with a natural lubricant can help increase elasticity of the vaginal and vulvar tissues and prevent chafing or irritation. (Note: it's important to see your gynecologist or dermatologist if the problem persists).
