Keeping skin clean will help prevent breakouts and blemishes, so make sure you follow a regular cleansing routine for your skin.  Try to avoid touching skin repeatedly with your hands as they help to spread bacteria. Don’t squeeze or pick your breakouts. Use our Neem and Clove blemish gel to target problem areas.

Of course. It’s absolutely fine to wear makeup if you have acne breakouts/blemishes. Just make sure you choose non-comedogenic base products that won’t clog pores.

Some hormonal fluctuations in adults cause breakouts. It’s not uncommon but it is worth visiting a dermatologist to see if they can offer a solution. You can absolutely use Botanical Lab range. Our products are gentle, and designed to condition the skin as well as help  reduce blemishes.

Our cleansers have been designed to work interchangeably but if you need a little help choosing which one to get, we recommend to use non-foaming clay cleanser in the morning and evening as your main cleanser. Face wash on the other hand can be used as a second cleanse at night or a quick wash after a workout. Because of its ease of use, our face wash makes a great choice for men.
