There are few things more frustrating than going to bed with clear skin and waking up with a mammoth zit on your face. We all want gorgeous, flawless skin that radiates from the inside out. But who has time with a million different toners, scrubs, eye creams, and masques every day and every night? It can be overwhelming and exhausting. Here are tips to avoid pimples :
Always remove your make-up. We repeat, do NOT go to bed with your make up on. Leaving make-up on overnight will clog pores and lead to breakouts. If you prefer to use a make-up wipe or make-up remover to take off your make-up that is fine. You should still wash your face after you remove your make-up. For those with dry or sensitive skin choose a gentle non-foaming cleanser.
Sun exposure is the worst thing for your skin, it is the main cause of premature aging. There is no excuse for skimping on daily sun protection. While it’s ok to use a moisturizer in the morning with SPF, you should still reapply every two hours for maximum protection. Powered sunscreens are great to keep on hand; you can quickly dust it on anytime, anywhere.
It’s as simple as that. In the morning wash your face and apply a moisturizing sunscreen. In the evening, wash again and use a retinoid. Those simple steps will keep your skin in tip top shape.
Regular exfoliation is a must for a glowing complexion. The best way to do it is in the shower when skin is more supple. Exfoliating brushes like the Clarisonic Brush takes all the guess work out of it. It runs off a timer and provides just the right amount of pressure for good exfoliation. Another good way to exfoliate your skin is by using a prescription retinoid cream like Retin-A. Retinoids turn over skin cells and help bring new ones to the surface, preventing fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration while exfoliating.
