Discover the Best Products for Treating Acne
If you are reading this blog, you or someone you know has probably experienced the reality of acne.
Acne affects 85% of Australians aged 15 to 24 and can significantly impact self-esteem. While it mainly tends to occur during the teenage years, acne can be an ongoing issue for many people well into their 30s and beyond. So, what exactly is acne, and what are the best products for treating acne? Let’s take a closer look and discover how GERnetic approaches this common and unforgiving skin condition.
What is acne?
We tend to think of acne-prone skin as being oily. This is predominantly true, but it is not the only factor.
Sebaceous glands under the skin are connected to the pores by follicles containing a small hair that grows out of the skin. Sebum is a naturally healthy skin lubricant and carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the skin’s surface.
Problems arise when the skin produces too much sebum and causes the follicles to get blocked, forcing oil to build up under the skin.
Skin cells, sebum, and hair can clump together to form a plug. This plug gets infected with bacteria, and swelling results. Acne causes several types of pimples:
- Whiteheads: remain under the skin and produce a white bump.
- Blackheads: Reach the surface of the skin and open up.
- Small, pink bumps on the skin can be tender to the touch.
- Topped by white or yellow pus-filled lesions that may be red at the base.
- Large, painful, solid lesions that are deep within the skin.
- Deep, painful, pus-filled lesions.
Acne breakouts tend to appear on the face but can also affect the back, chest and shoulders.
Acne is not necessarily a sign of oiliness. The skin can be sensitive and inflamed due to an impaired hydrolipidic film and poor skin immunity.
Acne can also be a sign of hormonal imbalance or digestive issues.
Luckily, GERnetic has researched all of these factors and developed the best products for treating acne. So, let’s take a look…
Best Acne Products from GERnetic
- Prepare and Purify the skin
Derma Cleansing Emulsion helps disinfect and clear oily and acne-prone skins. It is ideal for removing excessive oiliness while moisturising and balancing the skin’s pH. Derma is non-irritating and super gentle.
Sebo Ger Purifying Lotion is suitable for skins that tend to be oily with blackheads and pimples. It is a potent antiseptic and depurative lotion. With Burdock, Watercress and Myrrh extracts, Sebo Ger’s cleansing properties make it a natural antibiotic. It is also nourishing and remineralising, strengthening the skin’s immunity. Sebo Ger can reduce breakout and inflammation and should only be used on congested areas.
- Regulate sebaceous glands and reduce breakouts
Mixed & Oily is a highly effective anti-acne cream that deactivates the formation of pimples and reduces seborrhea (scaly, red patches of skin).
It has anti-microbial properties to prevent bacterial and fungal growth, which is paramount for pimple treatment.
- Regulate sebaceous glands and eliminate blackheads
Blackheads can be incredibly difficult to get rid of. In addition, Blackhead extraction can be painful and inflame the skin even more. GERnetic’s Octo is a gentle and exciting breakthrough in treating blackheads.
Applied directly to the blackheads, Octo regulates the sebaceous glands and is anti-inflammatory. Containing a synergy of extracts from wild thyme, rosemary, sage, witch hazel, chamomile and yarrow, Octo can have remarkable results. No more blackhead extraction for you!!
- Restore the Acid Mantle, regulate skin functions and boost immunity
GERnetic’s hero cream is at the heart of healthy skin. No matter the skin condition, Synchro is recommended to regenerate basal cells, restore the skin’s natural immunity and regulate all skin functions. In addition, Synchro is healing, anti-inflammatory and soothing. If your skin is particularly oily, choosing Synchro 2000 will give you all the benefits in a lighter texture. For the best pimple treatment, use Synchro as your final layer over the specific acne treatment creams you choose.
Digestive Related Acne
GERnetic prides itself on being a holistic product range. Recognising that the body works as a whole and understanding how lifestyle and nutrition can affect overall wellbeing and thus the skin, is central to what GERnetic is about.
Processed food, poor in essential nutrients such as vitamins, trace elements and essential fatty acids but saturated in refined sugars and based on dairy products, leads to the dysfunction of the digestive system. This can cause seborrhoea, dilated pores, blackheads and, later, digestive acne. So, if you get breakouts on your T-Zone, then chances are it’s digestive acne.
Packed with essential nutrients, Adipo Gasta helps balance and regulate the digestive system. This, in turn, improves the health and vitality of the skin and diminishes T-Zone breakouts. Adipo Gasta can also help with weight loss.
Hormonal Related Acne
Serious deficiencies in vitamins Folic Acid, Vit B9, alpha-tocopherol E, and trace element Zinc, combined with a lack of essential fatty acids, can be the cause of hormonal acne. This type of acne typically appears on the jawline. GERnetic’s hormonal acne treatment may surprise you!
GERnetic’s bust cream, Macro 2000, has been shown to improve the appearance of hormonal acne by providing the body with all the essential nutrients needed to reduce these types of breakouts. At the same time, Macro 2000 enhances the firmness and elasticity of the bust – it’s a win-win!
