While the causes of breakouts aren’t completely understood, one thing is very clear: They are no fun at all. The appearance of blackheads and whiteheads, the inflamed red skin, the soreness and stinging sensation are all unpleasant and potentially embarrassing. Let Sothys Acne Treatments Products reduce the appearance of blemishes and help prevent future breakouts.
One of the contributing factors to acne that is understood is an imbalance of skin oils. The sebaceous glands in the skin’s pores produce an oily-waxy material called sebum, which is needed to keep the skin tissues moisturized. It also helps create the acid mantle, a slightly acidic barrier on the skin that protects against bacterial infection through the skin. When the production of sebum gets out of balance, Sothys Acne Treatment Products help to regulate its production so it does not become a cause of breakouts. Blocked pores, particularly when they are clogged with excess oils and dead skin cells, can also cause the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. By gently cleaning and exfoliating this material, Sothys Acne Treatment Products can reduce their appearance.

Additional Sothys Products Information
Keeping skin cleansed of excess oils is an important part of controlling breakouts, but it is also important not to totally strip the skin of all protective oils necessary for keeping the tissues hydrated. The carefully formulated Sothys Acne Treatments Products provide just the right balance between control of oil and allowing the skin to be properly moisturized.
A balanced suite of botanical extracts and laboratory-proven ingredients allows Sothys Clarifying Correcting Serum to provide an intensive treatment for acne breakouts. This powerful treatment includes yeast peptides, which help to regulate sebum production. This allows the skin to continue to be moisturized and the acid mantle to be maintained, but without clogging the pores. Salicylic acid is included to promote exfoliation, allowing old, dead skin cells to be gently shed and also avoiding clogging of pores. A healthy skin cell turnover allows new, healthy skin cells to come to the surface, helping to more rapidly heal the visible signs of acne breakouts. Since the build-up of excess oils and dead skin cells provides an environment that encourages bacterial growth, acne breakouts are often associated with skin infections. The licorice root extract (Glycyrrhiza glabra) provides a natural antibacterial treatment, keeping skin healthy. Also providing antibacterial protection is tea tree oil, derived from the Australian tea tree (Melaleuca alternafolia), not to be confused with tea extract from the Chinese tea bush (Camellia sinensis). These ingredients, combined with glycerin for its moisturizing qualities, help to reduce the symptoms of blemishes and prevent the frequency of their return.
