Acne is a common, chronic skin disease caused by overproduction of oil (sebum) in the sebaceous follicles of the skin.  Acne presents as inflammatory and/or non-inflammatory lesions on the face, chest and back areas.  

Factors leading to developing acne are:

  • Natural body oils that clog pores; hair follicles become blocked with dead skin cells.
  • Excess oil in the skin.  In adolescence, sebaceous glands enlarge and oil production increases, causing inflammation and narrowing of the lining of the hair follicles. This results in the formation of plugs at the skin surface.           
  • An increase in skin bacteria, seen as redness, swelling, and including pus formation, that occurs as a result of Cutibacterium overgrowth.
  • Strong family history.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Diets high in sugars and carbohydrates.

Acne treatment depends upon severity of symptoms.  Moderate to severe acne may require topical and/or oral prescription medication to prevent recurrence of lesions. The goal of treatment is to reduce or eliminate inflammation caused by bacteria, oil production and dead skin cells, and to decrease the appearance of scarring or hyper-pigmentation. 

Exquis Skincare has developed Acne Clear Complexion treatment for moderate to severe acne, which I highly recommend from proven personal results. The advanced Ayurvedic plant-based treatment for acne works by targeting pores to reduce excessive oil production.  It contains natural antibacterial herbs, Turmeric and Neem, known to clear skin, to prevent future outbreaks and to even skin tone- for all ethnicities, skin types and genders!

Plants are natural sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and essential oils that promote skin regeneration and healing. Plant-based skincare products are made from ingredients derived from fruits, vegetables, herbs, seeds, whole grains, legumes and nuts.    Antioxidants are a class of compounds that protect cells from free radical damage, which lead to illness and aging.  They include Vitamins A, C, E and thousands of plant-based compounds that provide natural protection and skin regeneration at a cellular level. The nutrition in plant based skincare products restores and strengthens the body’s cells  by reducing free radical damage.  Plant based skincare products are free of harmful chemicals that include parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

Ayurveda focuses on strengthening natural defense against illness through the balance of body, mind and spirit.  Investing in healthy skin does improve overall health.  Plant-based products are important for maintaining skin function and health by calming inflammation and redness of acne, allergies and eczema and by reducing hyperpigmentation through exfoliation and hydration.  

The botanical world is rich in natural nutrition that boosts antioxidants, the essential building blocks for effective products that produce noticeable results in skin health.Exquis Skincare products offer plant-based nutrition and are created to repair, rejuvenate and refine skin appearance for all ages, genders and skin types.  These products are available online at

 Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that disrupts the body’s ability to process blood glucose. This disease continues to be a growing, global health concern and at least doubles the risk of early death.

Diabetes can be well-managed through diet, exercise and, if necessary, prescribed medication. However, skin complications related to this disease, such as infection, skin thickening and itching, are common. For example, diabetics may have dry, itchy skin caused by fluid loss due to high blood glucose levels.  The onset of skin problems may be more difficult to notice due to impaired circulation and decreased nerve sensitivity (diabetic neuropathy). Keen observation and good skin care are important considerations in diabetes management.

To prevent diabetic skin complications:

  • Maintain well-controlled blood glucose levels.
  • Keep skin clean and dry.
  • Avoid long, hot baths and showers; do not use bubble bath.
  • Apply lip balm to prevent chapped lips.
  • Do not scratch or itch skin vigorously.
  • Treat minor cuts and sores immediately to decrease risk of infection.

Exquis Skincare has developed an advanced Ayurvedic, Liposome based treatment with high tolerability and efficacy that relieves symptoms of skin problems associated with diabetes.  This moisturizer is quickly absorbed, feeling silky and soothing to dry and itchy skin, diabetic dermopathy, spotted dry rash and dark, scar-like blotches.  Over time, a visibly healthier, smoother and more luminous appearance is revealed.  This premium quality product is affordable and made in the USA for all ethnicities and skin types.
