Acne Treatment

85% of the adolescent population experience acne, and need acne treatment, while 8% of 25-34 year olds and 3% of 35-44 year olds are also affected. At Your Turn Beauty Salon we target acne and problem skin with Environ’s β-Active Range for home care and Peels in the salon.


What causes Acne or problem skin?


  • Plugs in the follicles caused by excessive production of skin cells in the horny layer of the skin
  • Increased sebum (oily substance) production by the sebaceous gland
  • Bacteria in the follicle and sebaceous gland
  • Inflammation of the area surrounding the sebaceous gland

Prevention is always better than cure and Environ’s β-Active acne treatment range has been developed specifically to minimize acne and problem skin.


Acne Treatment – Sebutrol


A pre-cleanser that is the most important step in the control of breakouts. Sebutrol helps the skin to retain its natural oils while minimizing excessive oil secretion from the sebaceous glands. Those who suffer from breakouts often over-cleanse their skin. This disturbs the natural oil balance, causing even more sebum to be produced by the sebaceous glands. Highly refined mineral oil dissolves the plugs that block the sebaceous glands, allowing the follicles to drain properly. Mineral oil also reduces the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. The antiseptic tea tree oil helps control bacteria and inflammation.


Acne Treatment – Sebuwash


A mild gel cleanser. The antiseptic properties of Australian tea tree oil, with the mild exfoliant properties of salicylic acid, make this product highly suitable for acne treatment. It also contains an ingredient that disperses oil.


Acne Treatment – Sebutone


A medium strength toner containing natural lactic acid that lowers the skin’s pH and improves hydration. Lactic acid helps remove any excess horny layer on the skin’s surface, minimizing the risk of further obstruction of the hair follicle. A low level of alcohol helps to degrease the skin and enhance the penetration of Sebugel-A.


Acne Treatment – Sebugel-A


A light moisturizer containing a low level of Vitamin A with Australian tea tree oil.  It reduces sebum production, smoothes the horny layer and disinfects the skin. It also contains bovine colostrum, a highly effective antiseptic which also calms the skin.


Acne Treatment – Sebuspot


A mild, effective antiseptic for use on inflamed areas of skin and breakouts. Contains low levels of salicylic acid and alcohol which promote the penetration of tea tree oil into the pores and inflamed areas. It is also important to remember to use a sunscreen because UV exposure can ultimately contribute to acne or problem skin.
