Breakout-Prone...? Avoid Them with These 4 Simple Tips!
- Watch your hands! This is a huge cause of breakouts and many of us may not even realize it! Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly- especially before your skincare routine/makeup regimen and also try not to unnecessarily touch your face. Leaning on your hands for example, can also cause breakouts! The dirt & oil from your hands/fingers gets onto your face and that can often encourage bacterial growth, blemishes, & even breakouts :0
- Be mindful of what you eat and drink! It's true and not an age-old wive's tale! There's scientific research to back it up- certain foods & ingredients can encourage breakouts & blemishes, with diets high in unhealthy fats, oils, & sugars you can increase the chances that your breakouts can occur more often. Skip the sodas & other drinks with artificial sweeteners as well.
- Don't be afraid of oil-based cleansers and other skincare products containing oil- including moisturizers! Your skin needs to be presented with a balanced environment and oil-based cleansers for example are a great place to start. Not only will they aid in removing oil & dirt, but they are fantastic at helping your skin to naturally retain moisture.
- Try a weekly mild fruit-based facial peel! Not only will you provide your skin with a healthy way to shed old, dead skin but you can encourage clearer skin too! Murad makes a fantastic option- Intensive-C Radiance Peel is easy to use and takes just 10 mins!
