Once you reach your 20s and 30s, one would be forgiven for thinking that acne would be a thing of the past. However, acne can follow us well into adulthood, triggered by factors such as diet, stress and hormones. When dealing with acne, educating yourself about what ingredients work best to clear, soothe and heal your skin is key. Ingredients such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide will help to clear up skin, but a gentle and natural approach is kinder to skin in the long run. Keep the skin clean by washing twice daily, try to resist the urge to purge, and wash your make-up brushes frequently to stop the spread of bacteria.

Nía was founded by Celia O’Grady in Newcastlewest, Co Limerick. The brand’s trio of products for combination or oily skin provides a natural solution. The Sebum Control Anti-Acne Facial Toning Mist (€24.95) is a really effective product that you spray on following cleansing. It contains aloe vera and oat milk to sooth and hydrate, lavender to heal and antibacterial bergamot.

Anu Teen soap (€4.50) is suitable for all ages and contains French green clay to absorb excess oil, along with lavender, tea-tree and almond oil. The soap is made using the cold-process method, meaning that the integral healing properties of the ingredients are not lost.
