Dear Soapwalla

You Ask, We Answer.

Have a skincare question you've been itching to ask? Now is your chance! Check out our latest letter about adult acne and kicking pimples to the curb:

Dear Soapwalla,
Help! I am in need of a serious skincare revamp. For years, I tried every over-the-counter acne treatment on the market, and nothing has helped. Spot treatments, peels, and salicylic acid washes promising clear skin all left me dry, irritated, and inflamed. Nothing touches my cystic acne, and I am tired of putting all these chemicals on my face with no result. I still have acne scarring from past breakouts (I'm talking from my teenage years!) that is just as noticeable as the blemishes. Can you work some magic here?
Sincerely,
Seeing Red

Dear Seeing Red,

You are not alone! It's a myth that teens are the only ones facing acne. Adult acne is much more common than you think, and our superpowered products help keep those cysts at bay. 

One of the biggest issues with stubborn pimples is the inclination to pile on the drying ointments. This can actually make things worse and add flaky skin on top of your blemish. Resist the urge to over wash, and try cleansing your face with water (and a washcloth if you need it) in the morning; save the soap for the evening. Our best-selling Activated Charcoal & Petitgrain bar fights acne naturally without leaving residue or that too-tight-face feeling. Use on face and body to combat breakouts and nourish skin.

For an added boost, spritz the Balancing Facial Toning Mist to refresh and revitalize skin. A toner helps balance pH, and our Balancing Mist is ideal for blemish-prone, oily, combination, and active skin. Spray first thing in the morning, in the afternoon for a pick-me-up, and before bed.

It may sound counterintuitive, but facial oil can actually help people suffering from breakouts. Combination skin needs love too, and starving the skin of moisture will only cause further over-production of oil. Apply 3-5 drops of our Restorative Face Serum to hydrate and minimize the appearance of pores. Our curated blend of seed and essential oils - including Evening Primrose, apricot kernel, and seabuckthorn oils - also helps diminish the appearance of acne scarring. Use twice a day, and see the difference a serum can make in your routine.

While we love using the Charcoal soap as a body cleanser too, you may prefer to use a liquid wash. Say hello to the Recharge Hand & Body Wash, an invigorating citrus and mint blend that wakes up the senses with every use. These essential oils not only smell delicious but are naturally antibacterial blemish fighters. A little goes a long way, and our washes are perfect for even the most sensitive skin. 

All natural ingredients and conscientiously handmade products are Soapwalla's specialty, Seeing Red. Feed your skin, and your face and body will thank you!
