Getting and maintaining clear skin is easier than you think. These healthy habits will help you banish breakouts.
Both over-washing and under-washing can spell trouble for your skin. So, what’s the magic number?
Two; that’s it. For most skin types, washing your face just twice a day will do the trick. Those with oily skin should stick to oil-free products like CLEAN & CLEAR® FOAMING Face Wash.
Eating the right food can help your skin tremendously. Keep the consumption of milk and other dairy products to a minimum, since these may contain hormones that trigger oil production. Refined carbs like white bread, pasta, and chips can also make spots worse by fuelling inflammation. Prevent breakouts by adding more whole grains, beans, and veggies to your diet.
Clean up after a workout.
Exercise is great! Not just for your body, but for your skin, too. Exercise improves blood circulation and helps bring toxins to the surface. Just don’t forget to shower and wash your face after a good workout, so germs and dead skin cells don’t clog your pores.
Get your beauty sleep.
Sleeping for at least seven hours a day gives your body enough time to repair and regenerate skin cells. This helps your skin look young and fresh. It might not be much of an issue now, but your skin will definitely thank you in the future!
Don’t skip the sunscreen.
The sun’s UV rays dry out your skin, so your body reacts by producing more oil. And you know what more oil means! So do yourself a huge favour and never leave the house without sunscreen. Just make sure it’s oil-free!
