JTG #10 Acne Skincare with Sara Sumic Of Healthy Skin Glows
Today we’re talking acne skin care with Sara Sumic of Healthy Skin Glows. If you’ve been struggling with acne or, like me, you have super sensitive skin, understanding your skin’s microbiome and how to care for it is crucial.
Through my conversations with Sara, I’ve realized that I’ve been over cleansing my skin and damaging its natural barrier and fragile ecology. In today’s episode we dive into practical steps to restore balance to your skin.
Sara Sumic, MSc, is a molecular biologist, former acne sufferer, and skincare blogger. She started Healthy Skin Glows to share science-based skincare tips and help women heal their skin from the inside out.
In this episode, Sara talks to JTG host Caroline Frenette about:
- How acid mantle keeps your skin healthy and clear
- The ideal PH of your skin
- Why the skin mantle needs to be slightly acidic
- Warning signs of a chronically disrupted acid mantle
- What disrupts the acid mantle and how to prevent it
- Why you shouldn’t be afraid of putting oil on your skin
