So… you’ve all read Hannah’s story of how Tria’s Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light has improved her skin’s complexion and boosted her self-confidence. Skin problems are a sensitive subject and we’re delighted that she agreed to share her experience with our blog readers.

This week, we are discussing the basic causes of acne, bringing you the simple facts along with some top tips from the team here at

Acne Clearing Blue Light

Causes of Acne

We all know that changes in hormones can cause acne in teens, but what if it doesn’t go when the school years end? We are discovering that more and more people are suffering with the skin condition well into their 20s. But why is this, and more importantly – how can acne be avoided and treated?

Stress – we all need a little stress in our lives to feel challenged and relieve boredom, but there’s no escaping the effect that too much stress can have on our skin. Studies have shown that it’s all to do with the stress hormone being very active, resulting in an increased oil production that leads to pimple breakouts. Top tip: if your working week is stressful - stop booking up every hour of your weekend and try “going with the flow” instead, making more time for you and your wellbeing, rather than rushing around and pleasing others. Be kind to yourself!

Cosmetics – unfortunately, when acne makes an appearance, our first instinct is to reach for the concealer or worse - rummage through the bathroom cabinet for creams, lotions, serums, masks, gels… quite frankly ANYTHING that has a possibility of visibly reducing the signs. However, the more products we apply to our skin, the more chance there is of blocking up the pores and simply adding to any existing bacteria and prolonging the symptoms.

Top tip: this is why Tria’s Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light is different like a breath of fresh air! It uses blue light technology to effectively eliminate acne-causing bacteria deep below the skin’s surface, clearing the skin and helping to prevent future breakouts. Gentle as water, it leaves your skin feeling smooth and clean, with a radiant glow and reduced blemishes. And with our 90-day money-back guarantee – why not give it a try?

Diet – it has been said that “you are what you eat”; this follows the belief that to be fit and healthy, you need to eat a well-balanced, nutritious diet. And this notion is never more true that when we are talking about your skin. Foods cited in the media for causing acne include cow’s milk, sugary foods, fatty foods, coffee, breads and foods rich in protein. So, aside from becoming a fruitarian, what can you eat in order to keep your skin healthy? Well, the blindingly obvious answer is - everything in moderation! Yet, let’s not ignore the 5 pieces of fruit and veg a day government campaign, plus it can’t hurt to avoid foods that are excessively sugary and fatty. Top tip: some foods that are high in sugar and fat can be less obvious than others, so it doesn’t hurt to check out the labels on your favourites. Some surprises we spotted were table sauces, fruit juices, canned meats and breakfast cereals.
