Clear skin is something that we all want, it’s hard to deny. We all have skin issues in one way or another, some of us have mild acne problems, others have very severe acne problems. However, you can get the clear skin that you have always wanted. Here are 10 tips on how you can get clearer skin.
Wash your face, not once, but twice a day.
It sounds like a lot of washing, a lot of us barely have time to brush your teeth before going to bed and starting the next day. But I promise you, if you take the time to wash your face in the morning when you wake up, and at night before going to bed, you will have much clearer skin in no time. There is a lot of grim that builds up during the day and while we sleep, if you keep your face clean, your pores will stay clean too.
Try to reduce the stressful things in life.
Being stressed can cause a lot of acne to form. There is a lot of complicated science behind it but the answer on how to prevent it is simple, stop stressing out about the little things. If you have been extremely stressed recently, try taking a step back, meditate, go on a walk, do something that will get your mind off of the stress. This will help your skin naturally.
Cut back on the junk foods.
This includes fast food, sodas, snacks, anything with sugar or grease needs to be decreased immediately. If you are binge eating unhealthy things, the sugar and grease will fight back by filling your pores. If you try to cut back on the amount of unhealthy things that you eat daily, replacing it with something healthier so you can still snack throughout the day, you will notice a big difference in your skins health.
Apply sunscreen and other lotions to keep your skin safe.
These things are not only to keep you safe from the sun rays that shine down very aggressively, they are also capable of keeping your skin clean. As long as you are washing your face at the end of the day, you will not have to worry about anything clogging your pores. These lotions are here to keep things out of your pores while you go about your day. If you are going to apply make up, apply lotion first so that nothing seeps in that you can’t wash out easily with water or a make up wipe.
Speaking of make up, if you like to wear it, decrease the amount you wear.
You don’t need to stop wearing it completely, but it would help your skin a lot if you decreased the amount of it that you used. Maybe wear it one day, go without it the next, alternate the days and your skin will be much healthier in no time. But if you don’t wear make up, you can ignore this tip and move on down the line.
Hydrate your skin properly.
Washing your face is a great start to hydrating your skin, but it is not the only step that you need to take to get properly hydrated skin. You need to drink a lot of water, and you need to use hydrating moisturizers, while keeping up a routine of using them. Not having properly hydrated skin can result in bad outbreaks. This isn’t necessarily because your skin is dry, but because it is dirty and needs to be hydrated in order to keep all of the dirt away.
Do not pop your pimples.
It might seem like a great way to get them gone and fast, but sometimes waiting it out is a lot better in the end. If you pop the pimple, you can’t guarantee that all of the goo that was inside of your pimple made it out of the pore. There could be leftover that is left inside of your skin, waiting to form a new head somewhere else on your face. Or even worse, you might not clean the pimple properly after popping it that it might spread to somewhere else on your skin to create a new pimple. You can avoid these scenarios by just letting the pimple run it’s course.
Find an acne cream that works for you.
There are dozens of acne creams available. You can get doctor prescribed cream, or you can get something from your local super market. But make sure that the ingredients and the routine works for you before committing to it. It might take you a few tries to find a cream that works best for you, but you will find one and once you do, your life will become a lot easier.
Find foods that will help your skin.
Just like there are foods that are bad for your skin, there is food that is good for your skin. Any vegetables with vitamin A and vitamin E are automatically going into the pro bin. Just do your research, find which foods that you like, see if they have vitamins E or A, and add that to your diet more.
Make sure that your hair product isn’t causing bad acne. If you have a bad brand of conditioner that you are using, it could help cause bad acne. The same goes for soap. Check the ingredients, try a new shampoo and conditioner, experiment a little bit with your routine and see if that helps improve anything.
Having clear skin might seem a little bit impossible at the moment, but I promise you that it isn’t as impossible as you might be thinking. It is very possible with a little work. Start by washing your face and go from there. It doesn’t take an entire life change to get the healthy and clear skin that you want and that you deserve. And if you need any extra help, ask your doctor for advice. They will be able to help you.
