Hi, I’m Natalie with Eminence Organic Skin
Care, and welcome to another In the Mix.
And today is #AskNatalie, so I’m
really excited to answer your questions.
And today, we’re going to
answer Rebecca’s question.
She’s sent a question on our Instagram,
and she actually has a pretty good one.
I’m paraphrasing because she
had a little bit to say. Her question,
and let me share it with you, in short,
really, is that she’s experiencing bumps.
So she’s seeing some blackheads and some
whiteheads on the skin and she’s finding
that it it’s in the, you know,
on the side of her mouth area and
the cheeks, which is very popular for
where we see these bumps.
So what are these bumps?
So part of what Rebecca’s asking
is she’s like, “I just want my skin to be
young again. I want it to be nice and
smooth like it used to be.”
And she’s even mentioning that even though
her friends say that she’s got great skin,
she’s noticing this.
And I think that’s really important
for all of us to keep in mind,
is that though yes, our people around us
may say, “Oh, you’ve got great skin.
Don’t even worry about it,” you’re seeing
your skin in the mirror every day.
So we tend to be a little bit more
critical of ourselves,
so we see things maybe more
than others do. And I can definitely
relate to this. Even when I was younger,
I did experience my own breakout
situation, so I’m always in that place of,
“Oh my gosh, there’s another
one coming up. What can I do about it?”
And I think a lot of it is, for us,
is being able to identify
what’s happening. But before I go into
what you can do in your home care routine,
if you do find you’re seeing quite a few
bumps and you’re struggling with being
able to get it under control,
this is the perfect time for you to maybe
go and see your esthetician and have a bit
of a better analysis done on the skin
so that they can really set you up with a
really great home care routine.
So what I’m going to share with you today
is that if it is is on the milder end
of things and you want to take care of it
at home, just like Rebecca is here,
I’m just going to help share with you few
things. You may even have these products
at home already. So number one is what is
congested skin? So congestion just means
that there’s a buildup happening on the
skin. Some areas might have more buildup
than another. What can cause buildup?
Well, it can just be like the dead skin
that’s sitting there,
but it contributes also to things
like sweat, so if you work out a lot.
It could be cosmetics.
It could be using…different types of
climates, extreme temperature changes.
So the skin can get really,
really warm and then it can cause a little
bit more oil, and then cool it down again.
So there can be some variables that
are happening. But how do we manage this
and hey, maybe get it under control is
just start with a beautiful,
gentle exfoliating cleansing routine.
Two different ways to do this with
Eminence is that you can use a two-in-one
type of cleanser. That would mean that it
has physical, so a little of the beads or
the granules in the cleaning already,
or you can use a cleanser and then add
exfoliation to it. So,
I’m sure some of you are prepared for what
I’m going to say next.
My personal favorite,
it’s one I actually carry in my own
washroom, and especially because I love
to work out. When I come after the gym,
I always have that kind of feeling,
I want to get it super clean,
so one of my favorite go-tos,
and it’s not the only one,
is our Red Currant Exfoliating gel wash.
I don’t know if you can see it or not,
but there’s little tiny granules
in there too. And it’s really nice
because it really helps deep clean my
pores. So we want to help
lift and get everything out of there.
And it’s a two-in-one. So for me,
two-in-one is the way to go
because really, I like to relax and spend
tons of time in my shower cleansing
my skin. The second is that if you have an
existing cleanser…and some of you may
already have this at home.
You may have the Strawberry
But if you’re really looking at taking
care of your congested skin,
then I would really recommend going
with the Stone Crop Fizzofoliant.
What I love about this one is that it’s a
powder form, so it’s super easy to add
into any cleanser that you already have.
And an ingredient that I really
enjoy out there is the adzuki bean.
And what it does is is it grounds it
up like a flour, just like rice flour or
chickpea flour. The adzuki bean is the
same, and it’s really absorbent so it’s
really great if you have that little extra
oiliness in the skin as well.
So first step, add a little bit of an
exfoliation treatment to your
cleansing routine. This will get the day
started and finish the night off very,
very well. Now, if you’re looking for a
little bit more, so you find that it’s
helping but you want to really get in a
little bit deeper, then you can also do
an additional exfoliation treatment at
home. So you can start with your
exfoliating cleanser and then you can go
on to another step of exfoliation,
and where I recommend you go next is to
use one of our exfoliating peels.
My two favorite choices when it comes to
this is going to be the Firm and
the Clear. And I just wanted to let you
know that when you grab it,
it’s going to look like this,
but once you open the container,
you’re going to find the beautiful
exfoliating peel itself in here, and then,
you’re going to see also a little packet
of cotton rounds. All you need to do is
you just want to press,
and you’ll see it’s saturated,
and literally wipe and leave it.
After about two minutes,
you’re ready to continue with your home
care routine, whether you’re doing a bit
of a mask and a moisturizer. So
that’s the cleansing and exfoliation part
that you can work with.
You can also spot treat.
So,what does this mean,
is that maybe you want to treat
this congestion, and the whiteheads,
and the milia, but maybe you also might
have a little bit of a breakout. So,
a pimple, right? So that might be
the case. So, I would go one
step further and you can spot treat,
especially with a mask. So
you’re looking for things like clay and
you want to look for, like,
muds and all these things are really great
to help with that type of appearance. So
I’m just grab this one because I really
love it. It’s our new Acne Advanced
Cleansing Masque. This one,
why I love it is that if you are not acne,
okay, or have any of those extremes,
doesn’t mean that you can’t spot treat on
those areas that you are kind
of worried about. So,
I love the Acne Advanced Masque because
it’s perfect for that.
It’s nice and creamy in texture and you
literally need a little bit.
Let’s see if I’ve got that there, just,
like, a little… Oh, yeah.
Look at that little dollop.
Hope you can see it, it’s so tiny.
Massage a little bit and literally just
go boop, and hit those little areas and
let it dry. I already heard that some
people really love to sleep with this one
on. So up to you, just make sure you
cover your pillowcase.
It’s the only thing I recommend there.
So always keep in mind that you can spot
treat. You don’t have to put a product all
over the face to really get what you’re
looking for. Now, as for moisturizing
at the very end…because obviously,
if we’re doing a good cleansing,
we want to make sure that we’re also
protecting the skin at the very end…you
can use a beautiful SPF moisturizer,
no problem, but I really love our
Mangosteen Concentrate. This really,
really gives the skin that deep
cleansing pore. So it also helps shrink
the pores as well, so if we’re thinking
about congestion, this is exactly where
you want to be. It’s lightweight,
smells like heaven, and it applies very
well underneath your existing moisturizers
or as a standalone. It’s a fabulous primer
as well, so it’s not such a bad plan,
especially with the holiday seasons and
all those family pictures you’re going
to be in. So I really hope you enjoyed
this. Thank you, Rebecca,
for sending in your great question.
I know it’s going to help a lot of people
because I know you’re not alone.
