Why do I get pimples?

In the simplest of terms, the cause of pimples is blocked pores. There are a number of reasons your pores could be blocked: 

  • Too much oil on the skin
  • Hormones
  • Dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin
  • Makeup clogging pores
  • Bacteria and free radicals

  • Acne Treatment

    Having too much oil on the skin could be due to hormones or simply if you have an oily or combination skin type.

    Your skin is constantly shedding dead skin cells and producing new skin cells which push up to form the new outer layer. However if you do not cleanse and exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells, they could sit on the surface and block pores.

    Heavy or long lasting makeup can potentially clog your pores. By sitting on the surface of the skin, it can act like film, blocking your pores. The best prevention is to either wear no foundation at all or wear lighter foundation or mineral makeup, but most importantly cleanse twice a day to ensure your skin is clean and clear at the end of the day and before applying makeup.

    Bacteria and free radicals can also clog your pores to form a pimple. Bacteria naturally exists on your skin, but there are bad bacteria which can cause inflammation and form pimples. Free radicals come from the environment (i.e. air pollution, u.v rays).

    The best and main prevention for a pimple breakout is keeping your skin clean through cleansing twice a day, exfoliating twice a week, applying a mask once a week and using a quality oil free moisturiser. Our Acne Treatment range is ideal to get those nasty pimples under control. Using these 3 specially formulated products can help reduce and treat breakouts of pimples and acne, naturally and gently without drying skin. They work in synergy, each helping the other to achieve the best result for you.

    Hello all, I have been using these products for years. Not only has it returned about 20 years to me but also treated my Rosacea. My skin is amazing. I will keep buying these products as long as I can. The service provided by Mismo is great. Issues if any are resolved very quickly. Thank you Irene and team .Veronica Ireland 🇮🇪

    Still the Best skincare out there!

    Have been using the Mismo anti aging bundle for years and love the gel, oil serum and anti-aging cream. An irreplaceable evening skincare routine, occasionally tried others, but always come back to this for results. The gel and nourishing cream and eye cream for the day keeps your skin the best it can be, even improving it! Have stopped trying other brands, they just don't deliver results that Mismo does. Also I totally trust the ingredients, especially for sensitive skin. Just love all Mismo skincare!
