Q&A: My man works in a hot greasy factor, how can he control his breakouts during the day?

question for battyHi Batty,

My man works in hot greasy factory and constantly sweats.  He’s been using the Hydra Healing Rescue gel each morning under the Facial Primer Moisturizer.  He’s been using the Acne kit for a month and a half after the Detox kit for a month.  He hasn’t seen many results until maybe this week.  He will be cleared up, then go back to work and sweating all day with grease and what not and breaks out again.  Hoping it’s just the “waves” he’s having and it’ll eventually get more mild.  We aren’t giving up!  When we don’t “mess with” the bumps, it seems to always be better.

Thank you so much!

Hi There!

Thanks for your question!

If he’s able to use products on his breaks, I would highly recommend that he uses the Quick Spritz Oil Fix followed by the Skin Support Serum.  If after two weeks or so he notices the Serum is making his face too dry, opt for the Quick Spritz on all breaks and the Serum just on lunch break.

When he gets home, have him wash with the Tea Tree Scrub right away, then follow up with the Hydra Healing gel + Facial Primer Moisturizer.  I know this may sound obvious, and he probably is already doing this, but just in case…. have him avoid touching his face at work as much as possible.  Bacteria LOVES a sweaty damp environment and touching his face at all will just spread it around.  Oh, and when he does use the products on his breaks, make sure to tell him to wash his hands really good before (again, obvious but important to note just in case it slips his mind).  He may even consider putting the Skin Support Serum in a spray bottle (like the Quick Spritz comes in) for easy application!

If he gets the chance to wash his face on any breaks, I’d suggest using one of the following: lavender soapthe grapefruit side of the P&G barSoothing Cleanser, or Tresses to Toes soap.  If he can apply a mist or serum with hydration AND anti-bacterial properties after washing his face at work that will definitely help too.  Suggestions would be: Acne BOP MistAfter Acne MistAcne BOP SerumAfter Acne SerumBalance Serum, or Bloom Serum (this would be the one I would suggest starting with for him).  He can skip the Skin Support Serum if he’s able to wash his face on breakouts.  Perhaps maybe using the Skin Support Serum or Quick Spritz on his short breaks, and then washing his face on his lunch/longer break.

I believe you’re right with the waves of healing you mentioned. Sticking with the plans we’ve talked about* should have him seeing more milder breakouts as time goes on.

I hope that helps!

Customer Review: Batty’s Bath Quick Tint Antioxidant Moisturizer (BB Cream)

 

light moisturizer with a light whipped foundation

Batty’s Bath Quick Tint Antioxidant Moisturizer (BB Cream) is like a soothing facial, a luxurious moisturizer, a light whipped foundation, and healthy raw smoothie (for your face!) all in one! This unscented tinted facial moisturizer “feeds” the skin on your face free radical killing antioxidants all day long while giving you a light natural glow! The natural pure minerals give you overall, smooth super light coverage to help even your skin tone. It can be worn with makeup or without! We find it especially great for “no makeup” days when you don’t want to go through a full makeup routine but you still want a bit of coverage before leaving the house (without worrying what your complexion is up to)!

It glides on silky smooth making it excellent for applying to delicate areas like around the eyes have been specifically chosen for their mature skin supporting properties (such as their ability to decrease the rate at which skin matures and can even make the signs of aging less noticeable).

Roz sent us this review of our Quick Tint Antioxidant Moisturizer:

After using this moisturizer for less than one month, my skin was softer, clearer and incredibly soft.  There is no trace of my previous mild rosacea and I credit Batty’s products for this.  I use it every night and the Primer Facial Moisturizer during the day.  

Thanks for a great review Roz!

Exciting News – Two New Batty’s Bath Products Now Available!

Batty has been working super hard to get these two new products formulated, tested, whipped together, packaged and available at www.shopbattysbath.com for all you Radiant Rebels.

What makes the Batty’s Bath Whipped Foundation so awesome?

Drugstore brands will promise you flawless skin, and they may, but the truth is that they do it using horrible toxins and
Natural whipped foundation free of parabensingredients that only damage and contaminate the precious skin hiding below it.

We’re putting a stop to that! It’s time to change your thinking because the truth is you can have an impeccable complexion, while your skin eats its nutrient rich cake too! The long-awaited Whipped Foundation from Batty’s Bath is finally here, and available in seven shade for that matter!

Your skin will love this foundation’s super foods for your skin including Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Rosewood & Lavender Oils. Not to mention all the benefits of Jojoba Oil including its ability to help fight acne breakouts, super moisturizing properties and talent for helping to regulate the rate at which your skin produces oils. You also won’t need to keep your skin from the light of day either because the added Titanium Dioxide and Zinc (non-micronized, natural sunscreen) will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

What makes the Batty’s Bath Nature’s Veil CC Cream so awesome?

Like most traditional CC creams, we’ve tinted ours to help blur out and camouflage those spots and dots. The SUPER lightweight formula leaves your skin feeling clean and naked, and not smothered by your foundation, all while giving the confidence to face the day. It gives you a buildable, light to medium coverage (If you feel like you need a bit more cover, check out our Whipped Foundation). By design, this products helps eliminate the looks of scars, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, blackheads and pores. It comes in 3 shades containing neutral undertones so that it can be worn by the vast majority of women.

  • Buff Fawn: porcelain and very fair skin tonesvegan natural moisturizing tinted cream
  • Almond Vanilla: moderately fair to light skin tones
  • Honey Flax: tanned/olive to light complexion women of colour

Need a little more help figuring out your shade? Check out the handy shade charts on our Mineral Makeup Foundation page.

This cream can be used over your daily routine products like moisturizersgelsprimers and even a light application of a serum.

Hydrator & Moisturizer

We couldn’t just make a CC Cream without adding in some TLC for your skin too! Balanced skin isn’t always the easiest to achieve. Often our skin’s missing one of two key components: water and/or oil. When we neglect to correct these, we often see people suffering with dry skin, oily skin or even acne. (To learn about this, click here). That’s why when Batty was creating the blueprint for this product, she knew she had to jam-pack her CC cream with BOTH hydrating and moisturizing ingredients.

Q&A: Why am I breaking out after getting home from camping?

question for battyHi Batty,

So your Quick Spritz Oil Fix was a LIFESAVER this past weekend (quick spritz + added tea tree & lavender essential oils)!  Thanks again!  But riddle me this… 4 days, I shower/face wash on day 2, the rest of the time using the wipes (I know, I know) to remove various layers of dirt, sweat and sunscreen… NOT A SINGLE FLARE UP/BREAK OUT… Little to no sleep too.  Didn’t wear much if any makeup except a bit of spot/scar touch up with some of the mineral makeup on a Q-tip.  Get home, shower, was face with Tea Tree Scrub (felt soooo good!).  Apply Hydra gel and Patchouli Moisturizer, wake up and my face, but more so mostly my chest are breaking out/looking like crap….????

Thank you so much!

Hi There!

Thanks for your question!

Haha, I use organic baby wipes all the time to take off makeup before washing my face – so no judgements about wipes here ;).  Actually, I use a dab of olive oil to remove my eye makeup at night and then wipe off the makeup and oil with a baby wipe before washing my face – works like a charm!
Were you doing anything to your chest during that time or just doing the above on your face? My chest breaks out from heat or congestion (ie when I’m not giving it a good.. but gentle.. scrub each day).  Yours might be the opposite.  Some people breakout from exfoliating if their skin is sensitive to friction (usually on the chest, shoulders or back).  In some cases certain fabrics will make them breakout.  It could also just be that the breakouts are just catching up with you after your 4 day weekend.  I get that on my face if I’ve been lazy for a few days.  I look at my face and think huh, it’s looking great I don’t need to do anything.. then bam, a few days later after doing minimal maintenance, the congestion catches up with me.  Though my skin is highly sensitive to dietary deficiencies too (miss my smoothie concoction for two days = break outs!*).
Oh I should also mention too that when I switched to using the Pineapple Scrub more often than the Tea Tree my skin got happier (I use Tea Tree more for just chest and back now).  The Pineapple Scrub scrubs MORE but not via friction, the pineapple enzymes clean out pores without super scrubbing action.  Now there are jojoba wax beads in it (like the mild scrub ) for some friction cleansing but with the enzymes doing most of the work, our skin doesn’t get upset about being rubbed and touched too much.  So super clean but as gentle as it gets!  For the first bit I didn’t think I had made a scrubby enough scrub but my face told me otherwise, lol.  So when you finish up this round of Tea Tree the Pineapple Scrub might be a better fit – especially if we suspect your skin did better without as much friction (even though it feels so good, haha)
Followup from customer.  I didn’t do anything to my chest while away – same deal as face. Wipes, spray, sweat, dirt and sunscreen. Lol.  Then exfoliated yesterday too.  So now I guess I should just back off it?  And sounds good – re Pineapple Scrub! Would love to give it a try.
Answer.  Aww ok, so yes, I would just go with soap and a face cloth for your chest for the next while and for your face.  If it’s not too happy either, go with scrub every other day, and just a good face cloth scrub up the days in between.  Once you get hooked up with the Pineapple Scrub, you can use that every day on your face.  Also be sure to continue to load up on Hydra Healing Gel and Patchouli Moisturizer.  And, since your skin reacted so well to the mist, definitely keep that in your routine too!

I hope that helps!

P.S. For some pre-camping routine tips check out this Q&A from the same customer about which products to take camping.

P.S.S. For inquiring minds, my fav mix to add to my smoothies (or to just add to pure pineapple juice, or water if in a pinch) is “Progressive VegEssetial All in One – in natural vanilla.
