Blemished skin

Impure skin does not only affect teenagers or young adults

What is the cause of impure skin?

When the skin develops blackheads, pimples and possibly acne, this can be due to various factors:

A blackhead occurs when the glands produce excessive amounts of sebum. The sebum cannot escape through the duct of the sebaceous follicle because the epidermis is heavily keratinized. A plug forms that closes the exit of the follicular canal. The stored skin pigment melanin reacts with the oxygen in the air and darkens the plug - this is how the typical appearance of blackheads develops. They appear mainly on the forehead, nose and chin, and in the case of oily skin often also on the whole face.

If skin inflammation develops from the blackheads, one often speaks of pimples. The skin reddens, bacteria and other pathogens can settle and lead to an infection. A focus of pus often forms at the top of the pimple.

Acne is a hormone-related disease that depends primarily on the male sex hormones (androgens such as testosterone). It occurs more frequently during puberty, when the hormones in the body go haywire. Because then the production of androgens increases sharply (the female body also produces small amounts of it!). The male hormones ensure that the sebaceous glands produce more skin fat. In the case of acne, the ducts of the sebaceous glands narrow, so that the often more viscous skin fat can only escape with difficulty - the sebum accumulates. By the way: In contrast to testosterone, estrogens – the female sex hormones – tend to prevent impure skin.

In addition to puberty, the second half of the menstrual cycle and pregnancy are often associated with acne because the testosterone concentration in the female body then increases.

Twin studies have found that hereditary factors also play a role in whether acne occurs or not. In addition, diet is said to have an influence on acne, even if this has not yet been scientifically proven. In addition, the climate (humidity, UV radiation) and other environmental factors are suspected of causing impure skin.

Acne can also be caused or made worse by a variety of medications.

What helps with impure skin? 
Our tips against pimples and blackheads

Thorough make-up removal

Thorough makeup removal is a must, especially if you had makeup and/or sunscreen on your face all day. If you dont remove your make-up thoroughly, it clogs your pores more easily, which in turn can lead to breakouts and pimples.

With blemished skin, it is very important that the skin is thoroughly cleaned. 

Our Micellar Water helps to leave skin clean, soft, hydrated and with a pleasant feeling of freshness, while maintaining the skins natural balance.


The 3in1 formula removes make-up, dirt and excess sebum (sebum). It also cleanses the skin thoroughly, has an anti-inflammatory, disinfecting and antibacterial effect.

The right care for impure skin
Impure skin needs care in the form of a light moisturizing serum and a cream with a particularly light texture.


A face cream for impure skin can contain soothing and disinfecting active ingredients such as avocado oil, curry, daisy and peach juice, which you can find in our MultiCARE 24h Defence Cream.

Microneedling against excessive sebum production,
pimple marks and acne scars

Impure skin can be counteracted with the help of microneedling, because this can regulate sebum production with regular use. If pimples or scars have already formed due to improper squeezing of skin impurities, these can be treated very well with the derma roller. For the face, the correct needle length is 0.5mm.  The !LoveElla Dermaroller can be used once a week without hesitation.
Here you can find out everything about microneedling.

How to recognize impure skin:

  • Large-pored skin 

  • Shine in the so-called T-zone (forehead, nose, chin)

  • Pimples, pustules and blackheads 

  • Skin prone to blemishes, irritation and inflammation

  • Uneven complexion 

  • The face, shoulders and upper back are often particularly affected

Pimples or Blackheads?

A blackhead can be the precursor to a pimple. Due to increased sebum production and a cornification disorder,

a so-called horny plug forms, which clogs the pore. The medical term for this is comedo, the colloquial term blackhead.

A basic distinction is made between open and closed blackheads. Open blackheads can be recognized by their black color, which means, for example, these small black dots on the nose.

An open comedo rarely becomes a pimple. A closed comedo can become a pimple if bacteria get inside. These then cause inflammation in the skin.

Cosmetic products with disinfectant and anti-inflammatory ingredients:
