Having a great skincare routine is really the most important thing when it comes to your skin's health. You have to make sure that you know how to use your skincare products properly.
No matter how bad/ broken-out your skin is, you need to establish a skin-care routine and stick to it (really stick to it!), it takes some time but give it time and be patient, only than you will see real improvements.
Consistency can make ab enormous difference for problematic skin.
Changing to a completely clean skin-care routine can and will also make a huge impact on your skin. Blemish prone skin is already very sensitive, simply removing the irritating and toxic chemicals, synthetic fragrances and preservatives can help soothe congestion on its own.
There are many potential sources of irritations but one of them can also be: The drying formulas that are the mainstays os many conventional acne treatments, which can have an inflaming effect on acne-pro skin.
Skin-care is not only about having fancy cosmetic products, it's also about eating healthier. Cutting out dairy, processed food (fast food), and refined sugar as much as possible can be as important as what you put on your face.
Stress can also cause break-outs and acne issues, it's a much deeper conversation that we will break down in one of our next posts.
When it comes to cleansing it has to be regular. Regular cleansing diminishes excess oil and helps keep bacteria on the skin in check. If you have an oily skin you should cleanse twice a day (morning-night). If you have dry skin try to cleanse only once a day.
Toners can add both your cleansing step and your treatment step: A good cleanser accomplishes a light/mild bit of exfoliating and leaves treatment ingredients behind on your skin to do their work.
What does it mean? Exfoliating means removing the top, dead layers of skin, along with oil, dirt, makeup, debris and anything else that can clog your pores that should breathe.
4. DETOX AND SOOTHE
This is such an important part of a clean skincare routine, detoxifying, skin, calming afce masks can be an extremely powerful adjunct to a daily routine.
5. VITAMIN C
I don't think that I should really explain this step, even our parents always told us that C vitamin is the best solution for everything. Vitamin C, an antioxidant that targets pores and mildly exfoliates in the bargain. It's great for all skin types and helps to support any blemish-fighting routine.
After exfoliating your skin you should always moisturise your skin. The temptation to combat oily skin by drying it out is understandable, but because over dryness can both spur oil production and cause irritation, keep acne-prone skin moisturised is IMPORTANT.
Try to resist the urge to pick your acne/ pimple, and try out spot-treat products.
