At some point or another, we will all suffer from an odd spot or two. Some of us, however, not only have spots appear once or twice a month, we have to live with them day in, day out.
In case you are struggling with acne, I thought that I would share a few beauty basics for keeping your skin healthy.
Sometimes, it can be hard to know what to do, especially as you receive differing advice from lots of sources. That’s why, I thought I would share these beauty basics, so that you can achieve healthy, spot-free skin, without the stress.
Cleanse your skin morning and night
Many of us only clean our skin in the evening. However, to keep your face clear of spots, cleansing both in the morning and evening is a good idea. If your skin is prone to blemishes, keeping it clean is incredibly important. Dead skin cells, oil and other impurities can clog our pores, leading to breakouts. So removing these substances from your face is important, which is where cleansing comes in.
To keep your skin free of spots, you need to cleanse it twice a day with a natural cleanser. Steer clear of products containing chemicals, as these can make spots worse. Washes containing pure aloe vera and witch hazel, often have fantastic results.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
When you cleanse your skin, it becomes dry as cleanser takes some of the good oils out of your skin. To give your skin a boost of hydration, after cleansing always apply a chemical-free moisturizer. Products containing chemicals are more likely to upset your skin, causing breakouts to last longer. So when it comes to choosing what you use on your face, it’s always best to steer clear of chemicals.
Treat your spots
When you notice a couple of spots appearing, don’t leave them, treat them. There are hundreds of different methods for treating spots, but two of the best are applying witch hazel or pure aloe vera gel. While these natural remedies may sting a little, the antiseptic properties of the plants will dry the spots out and help them to heal.
If your acne is bad, you may want to consider undergoing professional treatment. You will find that as well as getting doctor-prescribed treatment, another a great option is visiting a medispa. These centers offer all sorts of treatments, including a range of choices for acne. (If your skin is bad, a visit to your local spa is worth considering - these treatments can really help.)
Be choosy about your products
Okay, so I may have mentioned above how important it is to use natural products, but it’s worth repeating. (Yes, it really is that important.) When picking beauty products, always look for toners, cleansers and creams made for acne-prone skin. When choosing makeup, always make sure to buy from brands that offer natural products. Products containing chemicals can mess up the balance of your skin, making spots worse.
Want to keep your skin beautiful and spot-free? Take note of the basics above - they’ll help you to keep your skin looking and feeling fabulous.
