  • You’re prone to areas flaking or drying out
  • You feel like it is necessary to exfoliate daily
  • Makeup is hard to apply in a manner that looks smooth without exfoliating
  • Your skin tends to feel better after a rich moisturizer has been applied
  • Your skin can feel like it becomes easily stripped

  • Your feel like your skin is prone to fine lines
  • Your skin feels rough or “less than baby soft” by the end of the day

Benefits of being a Dessert Marigold

  • While dealing with acne is not an easy chore or fun, Desert Marigolds tend to have better emotional balance in dealing with the little things in life. You’re used to a challenge and find rolling with the punches slightly less overwhelming.
  • Your skin tends to be a really good communicator. It lets you know when something’s wrong; it’s just about learning how to read the signs.
  • Your type of acne is almost always tied to an internal cause. This makes it hard for you to get away with things you know will cause a breakout – This is a benefit because it means you have a built in system that will encourage you to take care of yourself! Figuring out the internal causes is the trickiest part, once you know that it’s just a matter of working around them.

Your Top 3 Focuses for balanced skin

  • Double exfoliation: Of all the Floral Auras, your skin is the most prone to sticky cells. These types of dead skin cells cling on leading to breakouts and blockages for your pores. Gentle abrasion is good for the ones that make it to the surface of your skin, but these cells are also found inside our pores. That’s why it’s important to also include an exfoliator that contains fruit enzymes (pineapple is our favourite). These enzymes are able to eat away at the sticky cells inside your pores. This doesn’t mean to start over exfoliating your delicate and inflamed skin though. Alternate between the two based on what your skin can handle. For example, Pure Amore Gel Cleanser (with fruit enzymes) in the morning, and Pineapple Facial Scrub (which provides physical and enzyme exfoliation) in the evening.
  • Building your lipid barrier: Desert Marigold usually find that their lipid barrier is weak or non-existent. Your lipid barrier is the key piece of armour your skin has against environmental stresses. It’s also how your skin holds in moisture and hydration. When the lipid barrier is compromised, the air draws the hydration out of your skin, leaving it prone to dryness and inflammation. Look for products that contain rich oils that will help rebuild your lipid barrier and protect your skin when it’s weak. Great examples include our Patchouli Facial Moisturizer and Balance Serum.
  • Hydrating your skin: While hydration is a key component to any skin care routine, your hydrating products should be boosted with other acne fighting ingredients. Look for hydrators that contain antibacterial and soothing ingredients alongside the hydrating properties (our Cystic Acne Mask is a perfect example).

 

Top 3 pitfalls for a Dessert Marigold

  • Not having a fully balanced routine! Every skin care routine needs to contain a cleanser, exfoliator, hydrator and skin moisturizer. Each piece is interconnected and missing just one of these can perpetuate your skin concerns. Not sure how to build a balanced routine? Build your routine with our FREE Routine Builder.
  • Not using nourishing oils AND butters. We picked the desert marigold for your skin personality for a reason – your skin can quickly dry up (either on the outer most layers of your skin or a bit deeper) when you’re not nourishing it with luscious, creamy, rich ingredients. Think mango, shea, and cocoa butters. Coconut too! For oils, think sea buckthorn, macadamia, and hazelnut.
  • Ignoring your skin’s communication signals: Breakouts are caused by some form of inflammation in the body. Whether it’s allergies, hormones, gut health, there is a reason that’s deeper than the surface. Start listening and tracking your skin’s reactions to certain situation, products, environments and more. Pinpointing the causes and triggers behind your breakouts may take some time, but you can get there! This also means you never want to solely focus on topical solutions for your breakouts. While they can help in the short term, they can’t provide long term, sustainable solutions without internal healing too.

  • Avoiding Exfoliation: Many Desert Marigolds are afraid to exfoliation for fear that it will irritate their skin. Every routine needs an exfoliator in it. This is especially crucial for you as your skin is high susceptible to sticky cells. Remember, exfoliation doesn’t necessary mean abrasion. The goal is to remove dead skin cells and other debris and this can be achieved through other types of exfoliation like fruit enzymes.
