If you’re looking for tips on how to get rid of acne, chances are you have already tried some type of acne treatment that promised the world but gave you little results. The following is a shortlist of five common makeup mistakes that are giving you serious acne breakouts.
First and foremost: makeup clogging your pores. When you’re wearing makeup, particularly when you’re not using anything else, your skin can become overly oily, which will lead to excess oil buildup. In order to get rid of pimples, try a non-comedogenic foundation instead of a moisturizer.
So, how do you fix this makeover mistakes? Here are a few easy-to-follow steps. Follow these steps faithfully, and you will begin to see noticeable improvements almost immediately.
Your first step is to wash your face daily. This will prevent any build-up of oil and dirt, which will make your pores clog more often. When you wash, use a gentle cleanser or a mild soap with antibacterial ingredients, especially before bedtime, this will remove any makeup you’ve been using.
Your next step is to gently exfoliate your skin, which is easy because it’s much like scrubbing your teeth. Simply massage your skin with a dry, clean towel or loofah for about 30 minutes and then rinse off.
The third step is to use a topical cream or gel that contains benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or sulfur for exfoliating. This will unclog the pores, which will make your skin healthier and reduce the amount of oil your pores produce.
Lastly, moisturize. This may seem like it is too obvious, but it’s vital that you moisturize. Your skin needs moisture to stay healthy because if your skin is dried out and oily, you will have more breakouts and makeup.
Also, dry skin makes it easier for bacteria and fungus to grow and thrive in the pores. If the skin is oily and dry, bacteria will flourish and the oil can block your pores. Both will lead to acne breakouts. If you use products with good emollients like coconut oil, shea butter, or avocado oil, you’ll have softer, smoother skin that lasts longer and looks healthier.
By following these tips, you will have clear, healthy-looking, youthful skin.
