Do you know WHY exfoliating is good if you have ACNE?

Do you have hormanal breakouts, teenage acne or oily skin prone to blemishes?  Are you regularly using a gentle exfoliant?  No?  Sit down.  School is in session.

Acne prone and oily skin generally sheds more skin cells than any other skin type - but instead of falling off, these dead cells stick to the oils on your skin; clogging pores and creating blackheads and spots.  Now cleansing can help remove this debris and is a vital daily step in your skin care routine, but it's not the most effective way to tackle the problem.

Exfoliating helps to remove the skin cell debris from the outermost layer of your skin, preventing a build up, which in turn prevents breakouts.  Exfoliation also smooths and evens the skin tone, it's a brilliant way to minimise scarring from pimples and pigmentation issues that come from healing breakouts. The key is to be gentle though - you want a scrub that isn't too abrasive and you'll only want to use it a couple of times a week.

We're putting Zeosoft Natural Mineral Face Scrub to the test.  

Zeosoft's Natural Mineral Face Scrub is a weekly face scrub containing Soft Zeolite. These minerals gently wash away impurities & exfoliate, leaving your skin feeling fresh, supple and revived.  This product is 100% natural and contain no parabens, no colourants, no artificial fragrances, no EDTA and is also environmentally 'positive' - it continue to clean when entering the waterways.

We're really interested to read reviews from people who have tried this scrub on their acne / blemish prone skin - so if this sounds like you, and you're keen to give it ago, tell us below!  And why not share your exfoliation experiences below!

I've only ever seen nasty chemically exfoliating face scrub so using a natural New Zealand made one would be a treat!! Would love to try this!

It's a good feeling to exfoliate..... getting all that grubby dirt off my face.... I love love love it. The smell. ... the soft feeling at the end of the day.... and the refreshing feeling in the morning. Would absolutely love to trial this product.

I can never find a good exfoliator

I haven't tried this but it looks like just what I need! I have oily and blemish prone skin so would love to give this a go! I don't usually exfoliate but could include it into my routine!

please help me here with good old hormonal acne

I've been dealing with acne for a really long time and I'm always on the hunt for trying new natural products that help my skin get rid of excess oils without stripping my face and maintaining my ph levels.

I get adult acne and find it very embarrassing. This product would be great to try to see if it helps.

Acne is a very bad issue I have would love the opportunity to try your product

i haven't tried this scrub, but would love to try it out!

I would love to trial this please. Previously I have been told that exfoliating too much causes the acne to be worse by increasing oil production but the phrase "Exfoliating helps to remove the skin cell debris from the outermost layer of your skin, preventing a build up, which in turn prevents breakouts. " makes so much sense. As I suffer from mature acne, this could be an absolute lifesaver. I would be over the moon to give this a go, especially being a natural ingredient product with no nasties and no microbeads!!

I would love to try this as I have oily skin it sounds perfect for me

My skin is full of breakouts and acne. I have tried several products but some of them only works temporarily and then ache comes back again. I am looking for this kind of product which not only solves my skin acne proble but also leaves it radiant and glowing. I am very keenly looking forward to use this product and try on my skin. I want healing to my skin which I have not obtained from the products I have been using.

I have this in my shower right now as I got it from a Beauty Review box! I love how it polishes my skin gently with natural ingredients and no parabens. I will add my review in a few weeks, once I can try it for longer.

I use it often to clean off my make up at the end of the day. I find it gentle and non irritating and it leaves my skin looking healthy and glowing. I haven't had acne for a long time though!

Oh and I absolutely love that it doesn't harm to waterways - that's a terrifying issue nowadays!

Yes, I love how refreshed and revived skin looks after exfoliating!

I haven't tried this product but would love to give it a go! I have horrible oily skin and am quite acne prone. I typically don't exfoliate because the ones I have used tend to strip my skin and just make the problem worse (looking at you St Ives). It is also quite hard to find one that is environmentally friendly. I would love to give this a go!
