Guide to Acne-Prone Skin

Guide to Acne-Prone Skin - Husk & Seed

Do you suffer with blemished or acne-prone skin?


It’s so rewarding when we hear stories from people who have suffered for years with various skin conditions and have found our skincare has helped soothe and ease their discomfort.

One condition that our range has helped with is acne and spot-prone skin.  It’s surprising how many products on the market that are targeted for acne or spot-prone skin are foaming, stripping, full of alcohol and other harsh chemicals and can potentially exacerbate the problem.  

We find that most sufferers are using harsh and aggressive products that harm their already delicate skin.  At Husk & Seed  we take a very gentle approach to skincare and treat the skin with the love and respect it deserves! 


Nobody wants or needs a complicated skincare routine, particularly when their skin is troubled, so we keep it simple with three products to help cleanse, calm and rebalance.  

It’s so important to start with a good cleansing routine, particularly if you suffer with spots.

You don’t want to be stripping the skin or hearing your skin squeak when you’ve cleaned it!  Gently cleansing with natural oils is a perfect way to remove excess sebum, dirt and toxins without upsetting the skin’s natural barrier.  


Our Gently Nourishing Cleansing Balm doesn’t contain any pore-blocking ingredients, only a delicate blend of plant oils and butters that are so gentle they won’t damage the skin’s natural barrier. We know that it can feel counterproductive to add oil to blemished or acne skin, but trust us, it’s amazing at balancing and repairing oily skin that’s gone into overdrive! 


The second step is the Calm and Soothe Face Mask.  As the name suggests, we designed it to calm and soothe angry, sore skin that needs a bit of TLC and recovery time.  The oils we have chosen, such as cold-pressed cucumber and broccoli oils, really help with inflamed skin conditions like acne.  It’s a clay-based mask, but unlike other clay masks, it doesn’t dry, crack and flake off.  It just stays lovely and moist on the skin and leaves you all soft and dewy!  It can also be applied to spots overnight to reduce redness and inflammation. 


The third step is the Overnight Replenishing Oil.  This is packed with reparative ingredients including prickly pear, rosehip, pomegranate and watermelon seed oils.  Just a couple of drops of this keeps your skin moisturised and balanced without feeling greasy.  It also contains essential oils of frankincense, lavender and jasmine to help you get a good night’s sleep! 

You can make a great saving on all three, found together in our Calm Kit.


If you prefer to use products that exclude essential oils then we have our wonderful super sensitive range, which includes our Super Sensitive Cleansing Oil  (with apricot, raspberry, olive  and oat) and our Super Sensitive Facial Oil (with perilla, meadowfoam, blackcurrant and poppy).  These gorgeous blends will soothe and heal the most delicate of skin types.
