What is acne?
Acne is a very common skin condition that causes spots and oily skin. The most common symptoms of acne are spots on the face, back and chest; with oily skin that might be oily and painful to touch. Acne may be linked to hormonal changes or could be hereditary. There are a multitude of ways to treat acne, but there are natural ingredients that you can use to treat acne and cystic acne.
What is cystic acne?
Cystic acne is a very severe type of acne where the skin's pores become blocked. This can lead to infection and inflammation in the skin. Cystic acne is a skin condition that mainly affects the face, upper body and upper arms.
Our founder, Ryanne, created Like It On Top as an acne treatment for her own skin. She wanted to use natural skin care ingredients and decided to create her own product line. There are natural self-care measures that acne suffers can adopt to reduce some of the symptoms such as spots, inflammation, redness and dark scars.
How to manage acne with natural ingredients
For acne prone skin we recommend rosehip oil, which can be found in Sustain (oil cleansing protection) to hydrate skin without suffocating pores. The fatty acids in this oil can also fade acne scars and reduce the redness common with acne. We also recommend using jojoba oil and grapeseed oil, both of which can be found in Filth (dirt cleansing protection). Jojoba oil is naturally gentle and non-irritating, making it perfect for basically every skin type; it balances oily skin, soothes sensitive skin, hydrates dry skin and helps can even be used on acne and breakouts. Argan oil is also great for oily skin because it can actively balance sebum production. Using it regularly as part of your skin care routine can calm the sweat glands, aiding skin to have a balanced appearance. You can find argan oil in Stroke (double cleansing protection) and Sustain (oil cleansing protection).
