Ever been envious of your friend’s clear and healthy skin? We have all been there and have tried many things from homemade and natural remedies to splurging on expensive skin care products to get rid of acne or just get better skin. So here are ten easy tips on how to take better care of your skin making it healthy, clearer and glowing.
Sunscreen- slather it
Sunscreen is something we all should never step out without. The sun’s harmful rays do so much damage in just a few minutes and it takes pretty long to reverse it. Sunscreen should be reapplied every 2-3 hours if the need arises. Also, keep in mind while choosing a sunscreen that it should match your skin requirements if you choose an oil-based sun-block for oily skin it will further break you out.
Exfoliation or scrubbing is very important. Clean your face twice a day with the cleanser which suits your skin type and exfoliate at least twice a week to get rid of your clogged pores and dirt. Exfoliation regularly will also help to bring your acne down a great deal.
Sanitize your makeup brushes
Your make up brushes and make-up sponges need to be cleaned regularly. The brushes are laden with bacteria that subsequently cause acne. Disinfect and wash the brushes regularly to get free from acne and blemishes.
Don’t pick your pimples
Picking acne is something which should never be done, unless, by a professional. Picking it further spreads the bacteria to other areas of the skin. This can also lead to scarring. Instead, you can apply some Neosporin ointment as a spot on treatment.
Did you know milk is the worst offender to acne? If you suffer from acne dairy might be a reason behind it. It is a proven method as milk tends to contain hormones, allergens and antibiotics which might be a cause for your breakouts.
