Smooth, glowing skin without pimples and acne scars is a dream we have been chasing but it is one of the most common skin condition that all of us experience in our lives. There could be many different reasons why a person experiences acne but some common reasons are exposure to the polluted environment, genes, hormonal changes, stress and even improper diet. Whatsoever the reason is, you can always take precautionary measures to avoid acne. In addition to this, there are many home remedies that can help you treat acne if you are suffering from skin breakout. So let’s explore them without wasting time.
Keep it Clean Inside Out:
As I have mentioned prior we are surrounded by a polluted environment which contains hazardous gasses and microbes that can affect our skin. Toxins and chemicals enter our body by inhaling fumes, dust, gasses, by eating unhealthy food and through skin absorption. All these toxins in our body cause skin conditions. You can clean your blood and flush out these toxins by drinking plenty of water.
In addition to this, if you are a makeup freak like me, try to wash your makeup implements every week. Dust, debris, microbes, and makeup build in on your implements and using these back on your skin can also become a reason for skin breakouts. Try to change your pillow covers on weekly basis and dust them before you go to sleep.
Skin Care Regime:
Majority people assume that cleansing their face twice a day and keeping it moisturized is all that is required to keep their skin healthy. However, exfoliation is yet another important step that should not be missed and repeated after every 15 days. Our skin cells have a life of 28 days; exfoliation is required to remove accumulated dead skin cells because bacteria may build in dead skin cells. In addition to this, exfoliation also helps to minimize pores and increases blood circulation that helps you avoid acne and keeps your skin healthy. There are various exfoliators available in the market but if your skin is acne prone it is always better to use one which is prepared at home. You can use a different method such as using oatmeal powder with honey to make an amazing exfoliator at home. Home Remedies for Life has different methods listed to remove accumulated dead skin cells. Give them a try!
