Adaptogenic & Prebiotic Skincare for Adult Acne Tuesday 28 November 2017 PDF Print Adaptogenic, Prebiotic, 100% Natural Skincare Created for hormonal, adult acne-prone skin. Here's what makes DISCIPLE different: \ADAPTOGENS are potent plant extracts that balance, restore and protect the body. We love these. Anxiety and stress increase cortisol - our stress hormone. Eventually this imbalance can directly interfere with the testosterone pathway and cause acne. We use botanical adaptogens that greatly improve your body's ability to adapt to stress and help to rebalance hormones. \PREBIOTICS. Much like our gut, our skin has a unique flora - with bad bacteria Propionibacterium acnes causing breakouts. We use inulin rich burdock root - a prebiotic plant fibre to beneficially nourish the good bacteria on the surface of the skin, helping to reduce inflammation and fight breakouts. \LINOLEIC ACID is an omega 6 fatty acid. Breakout sufferers have been shown to have low levels of Linoleic acid in their skin surface lipids. When our skin is deficient in Linoleic acid our skins' natural sebum becomes thick, sticky and clogs pores - that's why some skin oils can cause breakouts: not all oils are created equally. All DISCIPLE oils are high in Linoleic acid which helps to balance the skins natural sebum consistency. Following years of suffering with persistent adult acne, Psychotherapist Charlotte Ferguson-Quilter began researching the root causes of adult acne and found strong correlations between mood (anxiety etc.), hormones and breakouts. Further acne research uncovered the role of fatty acids in sebum and Propionibacterium acnes which live on the surface of the skin. Charlotte successfully cleared up her own acne with a holistic mind-body-skin approach and is passionate about helping others.
