Acne & Sensitive Skin
Acne is caused by clogged pores, or infected or inflamed sebaceous glands. Blackheads and whiteheads are common types of acne, and age, hormones and skin type contribute to acne flare ups.
Sensitive skin is skin that is easily irritated. This is can be caused by weather, allergies, dry skin, and chemical agents, for example. Problems include occasional redness and blotchiness, sunburns and windburns, and tight-feeling skin.
Routine for Acne and Inflamed Skin – Dermaki’s Acne Kit
This type of skin is a catch all group – eczema, psoriasis and inflamed skin, etc. If you are using an acid line or benzoyl peroxide, please seek guidance from your skincare professional on how to incorporate this kit into your regime.
We recommend starting with these products and having your skincare professional help guide you on your skincare journey.
Wash your face morning and night. We recommend getting your hands wet and lathering the Acne Treatment Bar then adding 2-3 pumps of the Acne Cleanser and massaging together. Massage desired area for 20-30 seconds and rinse well.
Apply Acne Spot Treatment with Acne Mist. If your skin feels oily and greasy reduce the amount of product that you use. Dermaki’s oils are non-comedogenic and will treat your breakouts not cause them.
Apply your SPF and makeup as usual. We recommend not using liquid makeup if acne is present.
Your skincare professional will guide you if you need any further products.

Avoid Alcohols When Acne, Sensitive Skin or Inflammation is Present
Simple Alcohols – Which include SD Alcohol, Ethyl Alcohol, Methanol, Methyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Ethanol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Denatured Alcohol.
A lot of companies use these alcohols because they make your skin feel soft and non greasy but what they are actually doing is drying your skin out long term and may disrupt the skin barrier and may irritate skin causing redness and itchiness.
Improving Troubled Skin
While overly oily skin tends to be acne-prone, you should not skip out on adequately moisturizing your skin. Skin still needs essential hydration, otherwise it will feel tight and dry.
Use any of the following products that your skincare professional recommends: Acne Bar, Acne Cleanser, Acne Mist, Acne Serum, Acne Spot Treatment, Inflammation Powder and or Vitamin A Complex/Serum.
We recommend the Dermaki Skincare products for both sensitive and acne-prone skin. It’s always a good idea to control inflammation first before trying to take on aging products. Dermaki’s acne products will be helping you with aging while at the same time focusing on bring down visible inflammation.
