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. Through her online course, Skin Rebalancing Protocol, and 1-on-1 coaching, she is helping hundreds of women bring their skin back to healthy balance, heal adult acne (without reaching for harsh acne treatments), reduce hyperpigmentation and slow down skin aging for a lifetime of clear, youthful and glowing skin.

In this episode, Sara talks to JTG host Caroline Frenette about:

  1. How acid mantle keeps your skin healthy and clear
  2. The ideal PH of your skin
  3. Why the skin mantle needs to be slightly acidic
  4. Warning signs of a chronically disrupted acid mantle
  5. What disrupts the acid mantle and how to prevent it
  6. Why you shouldn’t be afraid of putting oil on your skin
  7. How to start to integrate oils in your skincare effectively and safely
