ALKALINE skincare benefits for acne prone SKIN

At Sönd, we believe that our bodies (and our cells) are healthiest in an alkaline state. Sönd's alkaline skincare products work to keep our skin cells in their natural pH range, where they can function at their best.

Soothe Skin

Acne bacteria is known to thrive in an acidic environment so increasing your skins pH will help soothe the irritation.

Reduce Redness

Cells with a higher pH have a higher negative charge, which improves blood flow and helps skin to glow.

Hydrated Skin

A higher pH means there is more oxygen within a liquid. This increased Oxygen allows our cells to absorb more water.

Skincare for acne

Acne breakouts are not just a skin deep issues, it’s a little deeper than that. Hair follicles become blocked which leads to a buildup of excess oil. Harmless bacteria within the skin can contaminate and infect the plugged follicles causing acne breakouts. 


Alkalising your skin and gut will provide your skin with the perfect environment to combat free radicals and reduce inflammation. By alkalizing your body, your cells will have more energy to regenerate more efficiently. You will also have more hydrated skin because there is more oxygen within a liquid with a higher pH. This increased oxygen allows your cells to absorb more water.’ 


A gentle skincare routine is a key way of controlling acne. We would recommend a combined internal and external approach, including products and lifestyle changes.

skincare regime for acne prone skin

The skincare routine below is what we recommend is best for acne prone skin.

Clean Slate Cream Cleanser

Clogged pores are a feeding ground for bacteria to grow and cause blemishes to form. Maintaining a clean face helps control acne prone skin as it prevents bacteria from breeding. 


It’s recommended to cleanse your face twice a day when you wake up and before going to bed. Washing your face after waking up helps control excess oil that can get trapped in your hair follicles. Cleaning your face before going to bed will remove free radicals and pollution accumulated throughout the day allowing your skin to hydrate and prevent enlarged blocked pores. 


Use a gentle cleanser with soothing active ingredients like chamomile and marigold that won’t irritate your skin and strip your natural protective barrier as it may trigger breakouts. 


Avoid cleansing tools like scrubbers as it will rupture existing blemishing, cause acne scars and inflation. Instead carefully cleansing your face with your fingertips and lukewarm water. 


Cleanse face, neck and décolleté carefully twice a day.

Strength Training Serum

It’s important to keep your skin barrier protected and healthy. Research has shown that a compromised skin barrier can lead to skin conditions like acne. Applying a serum after cleansing will provide your skin with an extra layer of protection leaving your skin feeling fresh and protected. 


Find a serum with oil-absorbing ingredients like silica. Silica particles are sphere shape making it easier to absorb oil like a sponge. Providing a mattifying effect on your skin while preventing excess oil from clogging your pores. To manage already existing breakouts choose a serum with anti-inflammatory ingredients like moringa, pomegranate and vitamin E. 


Apply after cleansing on face, neck and décolleté and massage in carefully.

Sidekick Day Cream

When stacking skincare products make sure you allow your skin to absorb the serum before applying a moisturiser. Use a lightweight moisturiser that won’t trigger excess oil production and enable clogged pores. 


Be aware of moisturisers with exfoliating ingredients like, retinol, alpha hydroxy acid and salicylic acid as they can irritate your skin and worsen your skin condition. Rather look for moisturisers with humectants gentle to the skin like glycerin. 


Having dry, irritated, inflamed or sensitive skin can be caused by having a damaged skin barrier. Keep your skin barrier protected by using a moisturiser with Pentavitin. Look out for moisturisers with active ingredients like; moringa, pomegranate and vitamin E to help reduce the acne redness and inflammation. 


Apply after serum on face, neck and décolleté and massage in carefully.

Midnight Feast Night Cream

Acne sufferers have significantly low levels of antioxidants. A Low antioxidant defence system prevents the skin from fighting off free radicals, causing the skin to become inflamed. 


Applying antioxidant moisturisers at night with active ingredients like hemp seed oil provides better absorption. Replenishing at night time allows the skin to absorb nutrients better since the process goes un-interrupted without the interruption of free radicals. 


Try using alkaline moisturisers that will help obtain the most optimal skin pH. Cells thrive in an alkaline environment, with optimal defence against bacteria, regulate natural oil production and increase cell regeneration. 


Apply at night after cleansing on face, neck and décolleté and massage in carefully.
