Keeping your skin clear can be a challenge, and there can be various factors that impact your skin’s health. For some, there can be genetics that has an influence on your skin or the environment you live in, depending on your geographical location. There are some elements though that you can control, and that might help to keep your skin looking clear. Here are some tips to do just that!
Have A Good Skincare Routine
Firstly, you want to think about having the basics of a skincare routine and build your way up to a good one. Simply washing your face or wiping off your makeup with a wipe, isn’t always going to benefit your skin, especially in the long run. And a lot of questions can often point to ‘does washing your face cause acne’. Getting a good skincare on the go is definitely going to help clear up your skin to some degree, and the more you keep at it, the better it’ll make your skin over the years. It’s a case of trying products, seeing if they’re effective, and then finding the best ones to incorporate into a routine. You want a good cleanser to remove makeup and dirt, a moisturizer, and an exfoliating product you can use on a regular basis. Once you have the basics, you can then work on incorporating more stages if needed.
If you are new to having a strict skincare routine, you need to remember one thing: it’s all about ingredients. Familiarize yourself with skincare ingredients that can damage your skin, and with others that are highly beneficial. This means that when you are shopping for a cleanser, toner or moisturizer, you know what you’re looking for and can avoid getting overwhelmed by all the choices!
Another great way to find good skincare is to shop online. This might feel counterintuitive, but unlike makeup, skincare is actually easier to buy online. This is because a skincare brand like Revision Skincare will have details readily available: ingredients, benefits, and even reviews! Shop for your skincare online and you’ll find it easier to pinpoint exactly which products are right for you.
Avoid Popping Your Spots
Spots are very tempting to pop, but as much as they can be tempting, it’s important to only do it if needed and with clean hands or using a sterile tool. For the most part, those who do pop their spots might not always do it in the correct way, and if too much pressure is applied on the skin, it can cause damage. As you get older, your skin does take longer to recover, and you may find that some of the pimples and spots you’ve popped, actually do permanent damage. When you pop them, you’re also sending a lot of bacteria on other parts of your face, and so it’s important to clean it up properly too. If you have spots, it’s best to leave them for the most part, and if not, then make sure it’s done properly to avoid other spots from forming.
Be Careful When In The Sun
Sun can do significant damage to your skin over time from sunspots that can form on the skin and also changes in pigmentation. Not only that, but you might also find that your skin becomes more saggy and wrinkled when you’re older. It’s important to try and prevent as much of this as possible, and one way to do that is to be careful when you’re out in the sun. Always make sure that you are wearing an SPF of some description, even on days when it’s cloudy, and you can’t see the sun. Try not to spend too long out in the sun either, and if you can take breaks in the shade, make sure you do it. You also want to go the extra mile when it comes to your skincare after wearing sunscreen.
Drink Lots Of Water
Water does so much for your skin, and as our bodies are made up mostly of water, it’s important to drink lots of water on a daily basis. You can certainly see the difference that it makes when you compare a day of drinking water to not drinking it. The recommended guide is usually 1.5 litres of water or six pints. It’s something that might take a while to build up to and remind yourself of, but it can definitely help to keep your skin clear. Water can help in ridding your body of any toxins that might be clogging themselves up in the skin.
Eat The Right Foods
And finally, food can also have an impact on how healthy the skin looks. You want to be consuming the right amounts of food, whether that’s healthy fats, fruit and vegetables, and anything that can be good for you. The unhealthy food is always nice to have every so often but too much of it, and it can affect the healthy appearance of your skin. It can certainly dull your glow, so try to be cautious of eating the right foods most of the time.
Keeping your skin clear is a process and one that you might not always fix. However, making the changes needed can certainly help, so look to eat better, drink plenty of water, and incorporate a good skincare routine to see if it helps.
