Hundreds of medicines, treatments, cleaning products and cosmetics are available to people with acne, but the most important elements of a fight against acne program will not cost you a penny.
Step one. Feed your skin by eating a healthy, balanced diet.
Most health experts agree that a healthy diet will benefit your skin. Reduce caffeine, sugar and refined carbohydrates, all of which can activate the hormones that say your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Add more fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, juices and other healthy treats to your daily diet, and you will see in improving your skin.
Step two. Drink a lot of water to keep the skin elasticity.
Plenty of water is essential to the health of your skin. One of the main activities of the body’s Self healing system is to filter the blood, a work performed primarily by the kidneys, with the help of the skin the form of perspiration. This self healing system removes toxic residues from metabolizing foods and other harmful substances entering our bodies one way or another.
This purification system operates efficiently only if the volume of water flowing through it is sufficient to take the residues. 6 to 8 glass (64 ounces liquid) water one day is the recommendation. To reach your quota, carry bottled water with you in your car, your purse, your
Briefcase-wherever you go.
Get the habit of water, and your skin will thank you for it.
Step three. Exercise regularly for good circulation.
Get into a regular workout routine. Do it for at least half an hour, five days a week. The exercise improves your blood circulation by helping your toxins clear the body of your system, including your skin. Better circulation also increases the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your skin.
Exercise also relieves stress, which is a common cause of acne flare-ups. Last but not least, the exercise releases endorphins, the substance “Feel Good” in your brain that puts a smile on your face-the best secret of beauty of all.
Step four. Clean your face-then tone, moisturize and exfoliate.
At night * First remove your makeup with a makeup remover without oil and a cotton ball. * Then rinse the face with lukewarm water and an oil-free, non-comedogenic (does not block pores) cleaner. * Pat (do not rub) dry with a soft towel. * and apply an oil-free moisturizer.
In the morning * wash your face as indicated above, then use a non-alcohol toner. * Next Apply Moisturizer. * Then apply makeup-all without oil and non-comedogenic.
Once or twice a week use an exfoliator with alpha hydroxy acid or glycolic acid. This will help in shedding dead skin cells, the “food” for bacteria causing pimples.
If you exercise during the day, you will need to wash your face a third time, immediately afterwards.
Step five. Protect your skin from the sun and harsh weather.
A popular myth about acne is that the tanning will clean up. It may look like this at first, but soon you will notice that your tanned skin becomes less malleable, making it less capable of spilling oil and dead skin cells, which obstruct your pores. Your acne will become worse, not better.
Always Use sunscreen with at least one SPF-15 UVA & UVB rating. If you’re going to be out in the sun for a long time, wear a wide-flap hat.
Step six. Get plenty of good quality rest.
Your immune system requires energy to do your job, including the work of protecting your acne skin. The deep sleep that the brain needs to “reload” comes several hours in the sleep cycle. That’s why a few hours here and not going to do it. Most people need at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night.
Consider it a beauty sleep.
If you make these 6 items part of your everyday routine, you will look better, feel better, and have less need for expensive acne and cosmetic treatments.
