5 Rules To Follow If You Want Clear Skin
From a pimply teenager, to a
twenty-something girl who hasn’t yet figured out her skin type, to a menopausal
woman with a hormonal imbalance, we all have one thing in common – the constant
struggle with imperfections. We have all had our fair share of tries and fails
with products that promised to transform our skin in a flash, only to leave us
with yet another disappointment. But instead of searching for an instant
solution that would relieve us from stubborn zits and blackheads, we should keep
in mind that clear skin requires more than just a magical cream. If you want to
have acne-free skin, you need to bring changes to your entire lifestyle. These
changes, however, do not need to be drastic. Read on to see what we mean.
You Skin (Daily!)
If you haven’t already made it your habit,
start cleansing your face daily (yes, even if you don’t wear makeup). And when
we say daily, we mean daily. No excuses, skipping, or forgetting allowed! And
no soaps, either (especially if it’s loaded with SLES)! This particularly
concerns people with oily skin, because they might be tempted to use somewhat
harsher products to get rid of the unwanted shine. But the more aggressive you
are to your skin, the more it will ‘defend’ itself by producing large amounts
of sebum, which will eventually lead to clogged pores and more breakouts. Use
only mild cleansers, exfoliate gently, and apply a hydrating cream every time
you wash your face to lock the moisture in.
What To Try: Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser
Your Fingers Busy
We know how tempting picking your pimples
is, but please, try to resist the urge! Find another “hobby” to keep your fingers
busy. Painful, red pimples are signs of skin inflammation i.e. your immune
system’s response to acne-causing bacteria. If you pop your pimples, you are
spreading bacteria further over your face “preparing the ground” for more acne.
We both know that the picked pimples only
become bigger, they take longer to heal, and in the end might leave scars. You
want none of this, do you?
Get Your Beauty
Your skin regenerates and renews while you
sleep which is why your face is the first place where a sleepless night “manifests”
itself. According to beauty experts, your skin need 7 to 8 hours of sleep every
night, in order to look its best. Give your skin some good rest and it will pay
you back with
glowing complexion, even skin tone and fresh look.
To boost your skin’s ability to restore itself while you sleep, always pick rich, nourishing nightly products that will deliver all important nutrients needed for its full replenishment.

Comes From Within
It has been proven that what is good for
your general health is good for your skin. If you want clear, beautiful skin, fruits,
vegetables, whole grains, and proteins must all be part of your diet, while
saturated fats and refined carbohydrates should be reduced to a minimum. Below
we’ve listed the key products for clear complexion:
are your skin’s best friends, since they contain the much-needed vitamin E and essential fatty acids to help your skin recover from a breakout faster
- treat your skin to green tea regularly because this powerful antioxidant combats acne (milk is believed to have the opposite effect, though, so try to avoid it)
kiwi, citruses, broccoli, leafy greens and berries are all rich in vitamin C – natural lightening agent that reduces the appearance of dark spots and marks
from old blemishes
You are probably wondering how exercise can
help you get clearer skin. Well, one of the greatest benefits of regular
workout is that it reduces stress levels, and stress is a
known acne trigger. So,
if you want pimple-free face and
glowing complexion, get yourself moving! Choose
whatever form of exercise makes you feel good, as long as it keeps your blood
