Idiot’s Guide To Getting Clear Skin

Cleansing must be done regularly as it removes dead skin. Thereby preventing excess oil and dirt from accumulating and trapping bacteria that cause acne. Avoid being harsh with the skin and always dry your face with a soft and clean towel afterwards.

Moisturize well

If you use any acne treatment products, chances are that they are absorbing all the oils from the surface and making it dry. That’s the reason why it is essential for you to regularly use a moisturizing lotion to avoid your skin from peeling off.

This is an anti astringent that will help in fighting breakouts and blemishes, giving your skin a smooth and even look. You can try out any tea tree product of a good brand to see which suits you the best. I’d recommend Body Shop. (No, we weren’t sponsored sadly).

Avoid excessive makeup

If your skin develops acne easily, it is best for you to avoid heavy makeup and if you really must, use premium quality oil-free products and ones that don’t have excessive chemicals or dyes in them. Make sure you remove your makeup each night. Better safe than sorry! Anything for that clear skin, right?

Don’t touch

When you move your hands on your face, acne-bacteria spreads to more parts of your face that can result in more breakouts. It also increases inflammation and if you are not careful, it might leave acne scars on your face and getting them away is a whole trouble in itself!

Clean the pillow case

Never thought of it, did we? Well, using the same pillowcase for days makes your skin get all cozy with the bacteria, dirt and oil lingering in there. You should stay away from these as well because they cause acne and inflammation on your face. If you do this, you’ll have a clear skin in no time.

Avoid the sun

Direct rays from the sun will lead to inflammation and pigmentation. So the acne scars that you’re cursed with might stay forever. Also, if you happen to be using medicated skin treatment, it probably has steroids in them. Check with your doctor or do a quick Google search if they are and after the confirmation adapt a vampire lifestyle because the sun will cause some unwanted changes in your skin.
