My skin isn’t oily but I’m still prone to acne — what’s the deal?

It’s a common misconception that only oily skin types can suffer from acne, but as you might expect, this common complexion issue is quite a bit more complex! As it turns out, dry skin can result in micro-cracks in the epidermis (skin’s outermost layer), and these tiny fractures in the tissue make it more susceptible to inflammation and flare-ups of blemishes.

Furthermore, acne-prone dry skin can also be caused by or be a warning sign of an internal health issue, such as an imbalance in hormone levels, or a compromised environment of gut bacteria in the digestive tract (otherwise known as the microbiome).  Whatever the cause, it can be difficult to find a satisfying product or facial cleansing formula that properly balances its moisturizing benefits with effective acne-preventing properties.

The Bee’s Knees in a Bottle: About Reshma Beauty’s Honey & Lemon Face Cleanser

If this sounds like your skin type, there’s no need to worry — you can have both skincare needs met without using tons of products — and without using any parabens, sulfates, or other yucky synthetics. Our Honey & Lemon Face Wash masterfully combines the acne-combating properties of citrus with honey’s calming and soothing capabilities, almost like a gold serum sourced straight from the honeycomb.

COMBAT ACNE WITH LEMON 

Lemon Peel extract works in skincare solutions as a dual-action agent, meaning that it simultaneously offers antibacterial and astringent properties. First, the mighty yellow citrus cleanses the skin of acne-causing bacteria to stop the acne at its source before it can rise to the surface. Secondly, lemon peel has unique natural enzymes that help the skin regenerate new tissue that covers and protects acne-affected area, preventing the unwanted blemishes and blackheads from re-appearing.

Of course, lemon is also a vitamin C powerhouse that can work to detoxify your skin and boost your natural glow.

SOOTHE WITH HONEY

Honey comes into play as a moisturizing and balancing ingredient that nourishes irritated and dry skin. Since ancient times, when it was discovered in Egypt, honey has been used as a healing agent. Today, it’s still true that honey is helpful and healthy, especially for relief of redness, irritation and minor superficial skin damage. Honey can even help to open up the pores, effectively cleansing away blackheads and blemishes without drying the skin.

Honey is naturally moisturizing, and it functions as an incredibly gentle cleanser for the colder months of the year. Oh, and it’s more than worthy of mentioning it’s full of antioxidants, which keep your skin youthful and toned.
