How To Keep Your Skin Clean & Shiny

Clean your skin 3 times a day

Your make up may conceal the spots, but it also traps free radicals against your skin. Wash your face morning, night, and after the gym with a cleanser that contains up to 2 percent salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is the primary component of Aspirin. Yet, it has anti-inflammatory properties rather than blood thinning effects. When you do your work out, be sure to wash your face both before and after you exercise. Leaving makeup on your face while you exercise means that it will mix with your sweat and clog pores, so be sure to start and end with clean skin.

Do not pop your zits

Popping your pimples will only result in inflammation, scarring, and yes, more acne. When you get acne, try your best not to pick at it. The dirt and oil on your fingers can make things worse with bacteria and you’ll risk infection, which can lead to scarring.

Toss old tubes in favor of new ones

Benzoyl peroxide products that reduce acne are only good for up to three months after they’ve been opened, then the ingredients become inactive. You might want consider buying smaller tubes to reduce the waste products.

Calm Down

If you’re stressed, your skin shows it. Stress hormones increase oil production, which can lead to clogged pores and whiteheads. So make an effort to relax when needed. Try to do yoga, pilates, running, warm bath, or sex to reduce your stress.

Stress will put your facial muscles at tension, the more tensile force your muscle apply to the around blood vessels, lower blood will flow to the skin. Less blood supply to the skin damages skin cells and prone skin to wrinkles.

Eat less chocolate

Your diet has a direct effect of your skin. Try to avoid chocolate especially before your period. According to a study, acne can be caused by the sugar in chocolate. So if you want to eat chocolate, go for dark ones that include less sugar and more cocoa.

Use sunscreen lotion

Be sure to use SPF 30 sunscreen lotion when using acne products. When you are using acne products, your skin becomes more sensible towards sun damages. So try to protect your skin with an oil free lotion against sun damages. Even indirect exposure to sunlight, such as light getting through your office window, can damage your skin. Thus, wear sunscreen during the day till sunset.

Go Make-up-less

Try to go one day a week without make-up to let your skin breath. Also, once a week use face-mask to supply nutrition to your skin, but do not overuse it.
