THE ANSWER YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR

YOUR PRIMARY ACNE TRIGGER IS:

logo

GUT HEALTH

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

If you regularly have constipation, bloating, or other digestive issues, you may have a gut imbalance.

You might be surprised to learn that your intestinal tract's health is linked to your skin's health.

That’s because a gut imbalance allows toxins to pass into your bloodstream. Toxins that harm and clog your skin.

Poor gut health not only causes digestive problems but also increases inflammation. The more inflammation in your body, the worse your acne becomes.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

You could benefit from a probiotic like the Clove Hill Probiotic-10 to help restore the good bacteria in your gut and clear your skin
For more severe gut imbalances, we recommend our Clove Hill Bowel Rejuvenator / Vitalizer herb series.

Still figuring out which supplement will help clear up your acne by improving your gut imbalance? Let one of our acne experts help you with this.

YOU JUST LEARNED ABOUT YOUR PRIMARY ACNE TRIGGER. BUT BASED ON YOUR RESPONSES, THERE'S MORE THAN LIKELY A COMBINATION OF TRIGGERS CAUSING BREAKOUTS. 


HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO MINIMIZE THE CHANCES OF THESE TRIGGERS CAUSING MORE BLEMISHES:

STRESS

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

If you get new breakouts 24-48 hours after a high-stress event, maybe a problem at work or school, moving, or emotional distress, your breakouts could be triggered by stress.

It is no surprise that stress is a common acne trigger because there is a lot of research that shows a correlation between stress and your skin’s health.

trigger stress

So the question now is, how does stress make you break out?

Glad you asked. Stress activates the adrenal glands to produce extra androgen hormones, like testosterone. And as we’ve seen, higher levels of androgens put oil production into overdrive. This additional oil combines with the bacteria in your skin to clog pores–and voila! A pimple forms.

Also, when you are under a lot of stress, your adrenal glands release high amounts of cortisol, a stress hormone that triggers acne.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

We like to use our
Clove Hill Adrenal Stress Formula to help the adrenal glands cope with stress and its effect on our skin. Consider this your "chill pill".

HORMONES

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Hormonal acne is caused by androgen hormones. These are considered “male hormones,” but they are present in women, too.

The most common androgens are testosterone and its breakdown product dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Androgens bind to oil glands in the skin, telling the oil gland to produce more sebum. This excess oil combines with dead skin cells, debris, and bacteria and causes pimples to form.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:


Did you know that there are more effective and harmless supplements than birth control pills to clear your hormonal acne? You can find out which supplements you need by scheduling a free call with our acne experts.

DIET

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

You eat all the foods and desserts you love. Then you get a few breakouts and wonder where they came from.

You know you had some food, but you don’t know if that could’ve triggered anything.” Was it the delicious omelet, or was it the ice cream?

If that’s you, then your primary acne trigger is probably your diet.

trigger diet

It is no secret that your diet is crucial to having the clear skin you wish and deserve. But some foods, no matter how delicious they are, are known acne triggers and possibly the reason why you’re here right now.

The foods that are most important to minimize are cows dairy, seafood, canola and corn oils, whey protein, soy products, green drinks (with algae or seaweeds), egg yolks, peanuts and peanut butter, and last but not least, salt/iodine. 


You should add the following to your diet: 

Raw (not roasted) nuts and seeds, almond or rice milk (no soy milk), green smoothies (no seaweeds, just fresh kale, spinach, etc.), Larabars, sprouted bread and bagels (in the freezer section), quinoa pasta, fermented foods, kombucha (fizzy drink with probiotics), organic veggie or black bean burgers, whole grains, LOTS of vegetables and fruits, salads with a variety of greens, herbs, vegetables, spices, nuts and dried fruit such as currants or cranberries.

Acne-pro tip: A large salad with every dinner is a great habit to get into.

We bet you have some food in your diet that you think doesn't affect your acne. There's a free and easy way to find out if we're right:

PORE CLOGGING INGREDIENTS

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

You may have purchased products on Amazon or in drugstores that claimed to ‘treat’ acne, but did you check the ingredients on the packaging before purchasing?

Even if the bottle says ‘won’t clog pores’ or ‘non-comedogenic’, it doesn’t mean that it is necessarily true. 

No government agency regulates this, so skincare companies can claim their products clear acne-prone skin but still have pore cloggers as ingredients.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  • Read your makeup, haircare, and laundry detergent ingredients. Anything that makes contact with your skin, to be precise.
  • Download our Pore Clogging Ingredients List.

LIFESTYLE CHOICES THAT CAN AFFECT YOUR ACNE

CHECK OUT OUR PORE-CLOGGING INGREDIENTS LIST

USE THE LIFESTYLE CHOICES LIST

lifestyle 1

Because your face and body come in contact with sheets, blankets, towels, etc., it is important that you use non-pore clogging laundry detergent and NO dryer sheets or fabric softener. 

Even natural ingredients can be pore-cloggers!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

We recommend Tide Free & Gentle Liquid, ECOS detergent, and wool dryer balls.

Your shampoo and conditioner come in contact with your skin, so you need to check them for pore-cloggers as well and swap them out for non-pore clogging ones.

Finding acne-safe options can be quite time-consuming, but we carry a few shampoos and conditioners to save you that time.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Check your shampoo and conditioner, and replace them with acne-safe ones.

lifestyle 2
lifestyle 3

All liquid foundation aggravates acne and will prevent the skin from getting clear, even if it does not have any of the pore-cloggers from the list you downloaded above.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Go through your powder, foundation, concealer, blush, and bronzer for pore-cloggers.

You need to know two things: skin-picking and sweat. Picking on your skin spreads bacteria and oil to nearby pores, which prevents your skin from staying clear.

Also, sweat can irritate your skin and trigger more breakouts.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Don’t pick at your skin and cleanse it after you exercise to keep your skin clean and clear.

LET'S TALK ABOUT HOW ACNE FORMS

HERE'S THE TRUTH WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR ACNE

Acne is a genetic condition called retention hyperkeratosis. Every day a layer of dead skin cells is shed inside the pore. Ordinarily, these dead skin cells are pushed from behind by newer cells rising to the skin’s surface, then flake off in a normal, healthy pore. However, this continuous shedding process goes haywire in people with acne.

how acne forms

Acne-prone skin produces up to 5x more dead cells than normal, and the excess dead cells stay stuck on the skin’s surface and clog your pores. The resulting plug (known as a microcomedone), when mixed with oil, forms a blackhead. When infected with bacteria, it forms a blemish. This process typically takes about 90 days to form and show up on the surface of your skin.

From there, primary acne triggers like hormones, gut imbalances, stress, diet, and pore-clogging ingredients in your products will exacerbate the already formed plug by setting off what we like to call an “acne bomb” and inflame that microcomedone into further stages of a breakout like cysts & nodules.

The good news is that by using this document as your guide, you can get the clear skin you deserve.

You can finally eliminate your anxiety about going out because of your acne. You can stop feeling like everybody is always staring at your pimples, and wear your face confidently - with and without makeup.

Your clear skin can’t wait to thank you
