Dealing with skin issues of any kind isn’t easy. Treating and preventing it is a whole other task at hand. Like many of you growing up, I was very acne-prone. Naturally, I also had very bad redness and irritation that was hard to even conceal with makeup. As I’ve gotten older, I found not only treatable, but preventable measures for these blemishes.
MAJOR TIPS FOR CLEAR, GLOWING SKIN
This may be a given, but it’s so important to hydrate from within. An intake of at least two liters of water per day will brighten and plump your skin, toning down the appearance of irritation as well. Not only will this show an improvement in your skin, you’ll know how much it’s benefiting the rest of your organs.
Finding a true hydrating moisturizer will do wonders for your skin. I’ve gone through countless products to find my perfect match. For optimal glow I’ve been using a facial oil in addition to my everyday moisturizer. Yes, you heard that right. The Natural Glow Facial Oil from Makür has been my holy-grail for aiding in the tone and overall appearance in my skin.
Gently buffing away buildup removes dirt and excess oil, aiding in cell turnover, to reveal brand new, glowing skin. Continually removing dull skin also slows the aging process. Be sure to pick an exfoliate that is not too abrasive. Exfoliating your skin two times a week is plenty as you don’t want to over-exfoliate. Do this after cleansing, but before serum or moisturizer.
We all know the classic offenders: dairy, sugar, and alcohol to name a few, but there are also other eating habits less obvious that can cause these sensitivities. After all, acne is a product of inflammation—whether due to your diet, environmental influences, or both. Your skin is a direct reflection. Choosing an overall healthy lifestyle, filled with nutritious foods, is everything.
