5 Reasons You Need an Acne Treatment Kit

If you have acne-prone skin, you likely already know that there's not a one-size-fits-all solution to clearing up your skin, and just one skin care product probably won't solve all of your problems.

A good acne treatment kit can provide effective solutions to clear up acne at home. The right combination of products can help combat pimples, reduce redness and inflammation, and keep your skin healthy.

Rather than shopping around and trying to piece together different skin care products to meet all your needs, an acne treatment kit can provide all of the treatment options you need to build a strong skin care routine.

Here are 5 reasons you need an acne treatment kit:

  1. Combat blackheads and whiteheads.
  2. Effectively treat cystic acne.
  3. Prevent scarring, redness, and tissue damage that can come from severe acne. 
  4. Control excess oil production.
  5. Elevate your confidence and improve your appearance with clear, beautiful skin.

What to Look For in an Acne Treatment Kit

If you struggle with acne-prone skin, you need the right products that have a combination of different active ingredients to meet the need of your skin type. Each product in an acne treatment kit will serve a different purpose, so read the ingredients and benefits carefully and make sure they'll meet your needs.

Sensitive Skin: If you have sensitive skin, look for all-natural products that don't contain any harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances. Some products will be specifically labeled for sensitive skin. Ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and jojoba oil are great for sensitive skin. Be sure to find a gentle cleanser that is strong enough to treat acne-prone skin without over-drying or irritating your skin. 

Oily Skin: If you have oily skin, you need products that will control excess oil production, like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. You'll also want a product that has some sort of exfoliant to unclog pores and remove dead skin cells. Look for an oil-free cleanser with ingredients that act as non-chemical exfoliants, like activated charcoal or honey granules.

Dry Skin: If you have dry skin, make sure you find a product that is moisturizing enough that it will treat acne without further drying out your skin. Ingredients like tea tree oil and peppermint oil will purify and calm skin, while other ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, coconut oil, and grapeseed oil will lock in moisture 

5 Reasons You Need an Acne Treatment Kit

1. Combat Blackheads & Whiteheads

Acne affects millions of teens and adults, and blackheads and whiteheads are the most common problems for people with mild acne or moderate acne. The main cause of acne is bacteria, which clogs pores and leads to inflammation. This causes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts.

With the right combination of products, you can easily prevent pesky blackheads and whiteheads. Look for an acne treatment kit that contains a good exfoliating face wash and face moisturizer that will lock in moisture without causing excess oil production. 

We like the TreeActiv 2-Step Acne Treatment Kit for people with common acne. It contains everything you need to maintain healthy skin, without adding in products that aren't necessary. This kit contains:

  • Step1: Charcoal Acne Exfoliating Face Wash: This face wash gently cleanses the skin by exfoliating and removing acne-causing impurities and dead skin cells. It uses powerful, yet non-irritating ingredients like Sulfur and Activated Charcoal to refine pores and deeply cleanse the skin. It's gentle enough to use on a daily basis, so it works for all skin conditions. 
  • Step 2: Acne Treatment Face Cream Moisturizer: This daily moisturizer uses works to prevent acne while also balancing the skin's natural oils. It uses all-natural ingredients like peppermint water, aloe, and tea tree oil to control acne, calm irritated skin, and deeply moisturize the skin. 

2. Effectively Treat Cystic Acne

Cystic or severe acne causes painful, pus-filled zits that form underneath the top layers of your skin. It is often accompanied by redness, inflammation, and sensitivity. If you suffer from severe acne, you'll need more than just the basics to get your acne under control. You should still use an acne-control face wash and daily moisturizer, but you may need to add some additional products to your skincare routine in order to clear up this type of acne.

The TreeActiv 3-Step Acne Treatment Kit contains the acne-exfoliating face wash and acne treatment face moisturizer, but it takes your skincare regimen a step further with a cystic acne spot treatment that can be used as needed to address painful cysts. This is used as "step 3" in your skincare routine, and can be a huge difference-maker for those who struggle with cystic types of acne. 

  • Step 3: Cystic Acne Spot Treatment: This spot treatment consists of a fast-acting, clay that dries out stubborn pimples on the face, back, butt, and body. Ingredients like Tea Tree Oil, Sulfur, and Bentonite reduce the size and redness of blemishes overnight, allowing you to wake up with visibly clearer skin. The plant-based ingredients will reduce irritation, leaving you with clear, calm skin overnight.

3. Prevent Scarring and Tissue Damage

Severe forms of acne not only cause unsightly and painful pimples but can leave scarring and tissue damage, too—especially if you have a habit of popping pimples. Although it can be SO tempting to try to pop those pesky little guys, DON'T do it! It can turn what should be temporary blemishes into dark spots and acne scars. Finding the right acne treatment kit will ensure that you prevent cystic acne spots before they become a problem, so you won't have the temptation to pop cysts and leave harmful scarring behind.

If, however, you ARE a habitual pimple popper, it doesn't mean you have to live with dark spots and blemishes forever. A quality scar-reducing cream like TreeActiv Acne Scar Cream can brighten skin and reduce hyperpigmentation, leaving your skin looking bright and clear from dark spots and acne scars.

4. Control Excess Oil

Excess oil production is a common cause of mild to moderate acne. When oil glands are overworked and get clogged up, it traps bacteria in the pores, which causes blackheads and whiteheads to form. There may be stages throughout life when your skin is more prone to excess oil, such as when hormone levels change during puberty or in pregnant women. In situations like these, the sebaceous glands produce excess oil and can make acne worse.

If you are experiencing more oily skin than normal, you may need to change up your skincare routine and look for acne products that specifically control oil production. An acne treatment kit with high-quality skin care products will balance out excess skin oil.

5. Improve Your Appearance

Getting your acne under control is not only important for your skin health, but it can make a huge difference in your appearance and confidence levels. You'll be able to smile confidently again knowing the skin on your face and body is blemish-free and healthy. Wear tank tops and swimsuits, go makeup free, and socialize without worrying about unsightly blemishes!
