Take charge of your skin woes by finding the right treatment for your age and skin type. Whether you’re battling occasional breakouts or looking for a way to treat more severe acne, we share our top tips for clear, radiant skin!
Make Some Lifestyle Changes
While this may be difficult (and even painful) there will be certain lifestyle changes that you have to make in your life to stave off your worst acne-enemy. A study suggests that you may have fewer breakouts if you add whole grains, beans, and veggies to your diet. Certain foods are also triggering to your acne situation so learn them, and avoid them.
Set a Routine
And make sure you stick to it! Stay consistent, remain patient, and remember that acne treatments take time. No matter how tired or stressed you are, always remember that you need to cleanse. Whether it is your face or the things that come into constant contact with your skin, they need to be cleaned and often too. That means you phone, your pillow case, your make-up brushes, and even your hands!
Don’t Forget To Moisturize
It’s easy to think, “Hey, I have oily skin, I’ll just skip the moisturizing.” Except it doesn’t quite work like that. Not all moisturizers are created equal, and some are specially formulated to meet the moisturizing needs of those with acne. Moreover, many acne treatments tend to dry out the skin, so moisturizing is actually pretty pivotal in maintaining your skin’s natural health.
Choosing Products Wisely
Most important of the bunch is to choose your products wisely. An acne-fighting regime is only as good as its products, so you will need the whole shebang – a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer that suits your skin’s needs. If you’ve been on the hunt for a trustworthy acne solution, you could try the DHC Salicylic Acne set that is sold exclusively at Watsons. With 2% concentration of Salicylic Acid, your skin is less likely to build resistance to it as is the case with most Benzoyl Peroxide-based washes and cosmetics.
