Your skin contains lots of hair follicles from which hair grows. When these hair follicles are blocked due to oil and dirt build up throughout the day, it can result in acne. When your skin feels dry and oily, you’re probably struggling with dehydrated skin. When the skin lacks moisture it becomes chapped to counteract the dryness, whereas the glands beneath will start to produce more excess oil and dirt buildup. Another reason can be because you're probably using the wrong skincare products for your skin type. This can include overly-drying cleansers or other harsh ingredients your skin can react to. Our Clay And Glow Straw-Jelly™ Cleanser contains mostly natural ingredients and is rich in AHA’s which ensures that the skin remains soft while not drying out the skin.
