Having a smooth and fresh face is every woman’s wish. Sometimes achieving it is always the problem, from aging, weather to wrong choice of products there is always something impeding that goal. The good news is that, there is solution. If you have been struggling with acne and looking for ways to get rid of it. Then try these simple rules.
1. Lay off Wearing Makeup Every Now And Again
Regular use of makeup is an easy habit to get into, and sure it makes you look amazing during the time, but what happens to your skin after you take it off? It will become drier as heavy products like foundation and concealer suck the moisture out of your skin. There’s nothing wrong with wearing makeup on a regular basis but it’s a good idea to take a break every so often, even if it’s just one day of the week where you leave the house with a beautiful, natural face!
2. Always Wash Your Makeup Off Before Bed
It can seem like a nuisance taking off your make up at the end of the day, especially if you’ve had a big night and just want to crash! But it’s important to take the time to get rid of it as it will ruin your skin overnight while you sleep. The scary thing about mascara in particular is that if you forget to take it off, it actually dries and weakens your causes, making them become brittle so if you rub your eyes there might be a clump of dead, dry lashes in your hand.
3. Wash Your Face Twice A Day
It can be tempting to wash your face more than twice a day when it’s looking dull and underwhelming, but resist the urge because it will in fact do more harm than good – it will dry out your skin and strip away important natural oils. Get into the habit of washing your face first thing in the morning and last thing at night for best results.
4. Keep A Moisturizer In Your Beauty Bag
Always moisturize straight after washing your face, but also keep doing it frequently throughout the day as skin dries out quickly, especially in summer when the air is muggy and sticky. It’s a good idea to buy a small, hand sized moisturizer and pop it in your beauty bag whenever you go!
5. Apply A Pimple Cream
Unfortunately no one is immune to those dreaded pimples and zits which always seem to show up at the worst of times! Buy a small, hand sized cream which you can pop into your beauty bag. Apply after washing and moisturizing your face but before you start your daily make up routine. Use again before bed, again, after you’ve washed and moisturized for the night.
They might not have completely disappeared by morning time, but they will be well on the way to healing!
6. Drink Plenty Of Water
Yes, we’re told this over and over again but there’s so much truth to it! Drinking water keeps you super hydrated and brightens your skin, especially if you’re in the habit of drinking 8 glasses (or more) per day. There will be a visible difference in the quality and clarity of your skin which is all down to water.
7. Eat Healthy
Remember that our diet plays a really important part in how our skin appears, so if you’re breaking out a lot and your struggle with acne seems to be getting worse; it could be time to take a look at your diet.
Consider unhealthy food habits you could potentially cut out of your diet and keep an eye on your skin in the next couple of weeks, it should be visibly improving due to the change!
8. Exfoliate Once A Week
Exfoliation only needs to be done once a week, any more will dry your skin since it can be too harsh and rough, as well as ridding those important natural oils.
Exfoliating once a week will get rid of dead skin and leave your skin feeling fresh and silky soft!
