Let’s face it: Acne is a pain in the neck. And the cheeks, chin, forehead, nose and back. Everyone’s prone to it at some point in their lives, and it can have a wide range of causes. Bacteria often plays a major role in triggering breakouts, so arming yourself with the best bacterial acne products is key to helping your skin stay healthy and clear.

A Quick Overview of Bacterial Acne
Not all bacteria are bad, but some can contribute to acne breakouts. “Cutibacterium acnes” is a fancy name for the species that causes the most common type of acne. This bacteria is anaerobic, which means that it doesn’t need oxygen to survive.
Some of these bacteria are beneficial. We do need it on our skin’s surfaces to fight incoming germs and keep us healthy. But when it’s trapped inside clogged skin follicles by dirt, skin cells and excess oil, that bacteria can breed. It feeds on the excess sebum and skin cells, which irritates and inflames the skin. This process leads to blemishes such as whiteheads or blackheads. Bacterial acne can occur anywhere, but it usually appears on the chest, neck and face.
What Causes Acne Products?
While acne has many possible causes, the overproduction of sebum is a key contributing factor. Hormones can trigger excess oil production, but it can also result from dry or irritated skin! How? Well, think of it this way: Dry skin lacks the essential oils it needs to stay healthy and supple, so the sebaceous glands produce more to compensate. Cleansers that are too harsh can strip oils from your skin and dry it out, but natural skin products like our Daydreamer Face Wash both cleanse and maintain a healthy balance of skin oil.
Lavender is a key ingredient that halts excess bacterial growth and soothes irritated skin. Chamomile calms redness and inflammation, while grapefruit extract battles free radicals that can damage skin cells. Meanwhile, coconut oil helps retain moisture. Speaking of moisture, our Whirl moisturizer also fends of dry skin by helping it stay hydrated. Its lightweight formula won’t weigh you down or clog your pores. Its blend of skin-friendly ingredients includes nourishing grapeseed oil along with hyaluronic acid, famous for locking in moisture. Soothing, hydrating and redness-fighting botanicals include aloe juice, prickly pear seed oil and licorice root extract.
How To Treat Bacterial Acne
Basic skin care goes a long way toward fighting bacterial acne, but it doesn’t hurt to prepare yourself with a natural bacterial acne spot treatment. Loaded with botanical skin-loving goodness, our Meltdown Acne Oil is your ideal weapon of choice. Tamanu, blue tansy, lavender and rosehip work together to soothe your skin and relieve inflammation and redness. Black cumin seed is an antibacterial wonder, aiming right at the microbes responsible for most acne breakouts!
Whether you’re battling bacterial acne, cystic acne or need a hormonal acne treatment, natural products provide safe, effective and eco-friendly ways to fight back. Blume’s skincare solutions feature plant-based ingredients that cleanse, hydrate, heal and soothe irritated, inflamed and acne-prone skin.
