Focus on Impure Skin: Causes, Treatment, and Care

Impure skin is age-independent and can affect people from adolescence to menopause. In this blog post, we delve into the causes of impure skin. Our Saint Charles cosmetician Diana also provides tips on how to properly care for impure skin.

Diverse Causes of Impure Skin

The causes of impure skin are diverse and require different approaches. While adolescent acne mainly occurs during youth, the condition of the skin varies from person to person and can change over the years. Often, impurities only appear in adulthood. Therefore, we recommend having your skin analyzed by experts. Our professionally trained Saint Charles cosmeticians, Diana and Beatrice, are familiar with various skin conditions. Additionally, holistic advice from our Saint Charles pharmacists is advisable to effectively combat skin impurities early and effectively.

Skin impurities often arise from hormonal changes (e.g., during menopause). Hormones play a significant role in the appearance of the skin, as do lifestyle factors and intolerances. A holistic consideration of life circumstances is essential to address the problem at its root. Also crucial for a healthy skin microbiome is a diverse microbiome in the gut. Recently, we introduced Saint Charles Microbiome Ferments that effectively help improve gut microbiome and positively influence skin appearance.

Skincare Steps for Impure Skin

Cleanliness and a thorough cleansing routine (see blog post "The Path to Simply Beautiful Skin - Part 2

  1. Daily, gentle cleansing with the Saint Charles Cream Cleanser and Toner
  2. Spot application of the Clarifying Spot Treatment on problem areas; for severe acne, broader application is also possible
  3. Daily use of a day cream, e.g., the Daily Face Cream, which can be mixed with the Clarifying Spot Treatment for added support against impurities
  4. Regular use of the Gentle Facial Peelings and the Purifying Clay Mask for exfoliation and inflammation prevention

For general support, our cosmetician Diana recommends the Herbal Essence Skincare Complex for internal use, which supports skin care and metabolism from within.
