Oily / Acne

Oily / Acne Skin

Oily skin is hereditary and appears shiny, with visible pores, and is prone to spots or blemishes. When oily skin is dehydrated, due to excessive exfoliants and over cleansing, it becomes aggravated and begins to stimulate the sebaceous gland, causing even more breakouts. Oily skin must be properly cared for to prevent breakouts and control shine.

A typical daily routine for extremely oily/acne skin type would be as follows:

STEP 1
GOLD CITRUS CLEANSE:
A.M. & P.M. DAILY

Double cleanse at night to remove makeup and debris. Excellent as an eye makeup remover as well.  Cleansing in the morning may strip your skin of its natural oil barrier. Exception to this is extreme oily and acne skin types that may require cleansing in the morning as well.

STEP 2A
GOLD CITRUS MIST:
MIDDAY

Extreme oily skin types should re-mist during the day and blot with a tissue; this helps break the shine, while rebalancing the pH in the skin.

STEP 2B
CELL SALT DETOX:
A.M. & P.M.

Leave on for 10-30 seconds, then wash off with Gold Citrus Cleanse. Once a week, leave on for a full 10 minutes, cleanse with Gold Citrus Cleanse and follow with suggested serums. DO NOT use the Diamond Cell Salt Polish before the 10 minute Cell Salt Detox serum unless you have severe acne. This will increase the potency and cause a stronger tingle.

STEP 3B
LIQUID GOLD PEPTIDES:
P.M.

Best used at night, and should not be applied with makeup. If not wearing makeup, you may use in the morning.  Mix a few drops of organic coconut oil for an excellent body serum. Can be used as a standalone or part of daily regimen.

STEP 4
HEART OF GOLD ELIXIR:
A.M. & P.M. DAILY

Perfect under makeup. Can be used as a standalone or part of daily regimen.

STEP 5A
ROYAL DAY & NIGHT CREAM:
P.M. 1x A WEEK

Use this on the same day as the 10 minute Cell Salt Detox serum.

STEP 5B
GOLDEN ENZYMES:
P.M. 1x a week

A chemical exfoliation, if used on the same day as Diamond Cell Salt Polish or Cell Salt Detox this will create a slight peel effect which is normal. Sensitive skin types should only do this advanced peel once a month.

STEP 2C
DIAMOND CELL SALT

Alternate with Cell Salt Detox serum.  For extreme acne, use the two on the same day.  A manual exfoliation, if used on the same day as Cell Salt Detox or Golden Enzymes this will create a slight peel effect which is normal.  Sensitive skin types should only do this advanced peel once a month.

IMPORTANT TIP #1:

For a lighter version of the Royal Day & Night Cream, mist three pumps of the Gold Citrus Mist into two pumps of the Royal Day & Night Cream. This will not change the power of the formula; it only makes for a thinner version, perfect for oily/acne skin types who want a rich cream.

IMPORTANT TIP #2:

Ice pimples with a green tea ice cube for 10 minutes, three times a day, especially cystic acne; it does wonders! If you have only a mild case of acne try to ice the troubled spots at least once a day. Make sure to follow with the serums and moisturizers, because icing can create a drying effect. Green tea ice cubes penetrate powerful antioxidants into the skin, which help fight acne.

WEEKLY FACIAL: SATURDAY P.M.

The Golden Enzymes may be too rich for some oily skin types; therefore, we recommend exfoliating with the Cell Salt Detox and Diamond Cell Salt Polish.

  • Cleanse the skin with Gold Citrus Cleanse
  • Followed by Diamond Cell Salt Polish
  • Apply the Cell Salt Detox for 3-5 minutes
  • Wash off with Gold Citrus Cleanse
  • Apply Royal Day & Night Cream

If your skin starts to feel dry, discontinue facial option for approximately one week. Your oil production will slow down, so pay attention to your skin and don’t over-exfoliate, a common mistake made by most with oily skin. If you start to feel dry, increase the combination of using Liquid Gold Peptides and Heart of Gold Elixir both morning and night until skin is balanced again.

Make sure to follow up with a non-toxic physical sunblock of your choice each morning (i.e. zinc oxide).

INTERNAL BEAUTY

It’s important for those with all acne skin types to take things like DMAE, a powerful anti-inflammatory, in combination with alpha-lipoic acid. Glutathione is also a powerful antioxidant found in all our cells and is made up of three amino acids, cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid, making it a tripeptide essential in restoring our cells at the dermal level. This is extremely important when dealing with acne because scarring occurs deep within the dermis.

Other antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, E, and CoQ10 assist in protecting the internal healing of the skin cells. Probiotics are one of the most important things you can take. They help restore the gut and colon with good bacteria. Detoxing internally is vital as well; herbs such as burdock root and chaparral help flush toxins from the body. Finally, essential fatty acids are vital when dealing with acne (Omega 3-6-9), as they act as important regulators of cell membrane integrity, allowing for proper absorption of other nutrients and help balance the hormones.

Another internal element needed for acne is green tea extract, which is a powerful antioxidant, even more powerful than vitamin E. And don’t forget regular exercise to stimulate the metabolism, combined with eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, which go a long way toward regenerating the skin. Along with getting plenty of phytonutrients (green leafy vegetables), antioxidants A, C, E, essential fatty acids, and remember to concentrate on a healthy lifestyle; avoid smoking, excessive medications, and get plenty of outdoor activities to help recharge your internal batteries.
