My skin has been in an incredible condition recently. One year ago, or even just a few month back, I would never have thought that my skin could change that much in such a short period of time. At some point, I had blemishes all over my forehead and cheeks, and very dark purple scaring all over my jaw area due to past breakouts. Today, most part of my skin is completely cleared out from massive breakouts, even though I still have some red marks on my cheeks area. I achieved that by following a few tips that I want to share with you today.
1. CHOSE A SKINCARE ADAPTED TO YOUR SKIN TYPE - And use it diligently. I have oily skin and acne prone skin. Since I found the La Roche Posay cream for oily skin rennovation and the Effaclar Duo + my skin has litterally changed. No more breakouts, and let me tell you it is a whole new world. I would recommend the Effaclar Duo to any of you suffering from breakouts. You just apply it on your pimple and it will be gone the next morning. The other very positive point of this cream is the price. For such a good result, it is definetly affordable.
2. EXFOLIATE - People tend to say you should exfoliate once of twice a week. I feel the need to do it on an everyday basis, especially since I am living in a big city now I need to give to my skin that daily extra cleaning. I am currently using the Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub from The Body Shop. I absolutely love it, especially in summer since it really help to refresh your skin after a long day out in the sun. However I would stick to once or twice a week tho if you have sensitive skin. Exfoliating will help get all of the dead skin and dirts out of your skin and will leave you with a fresh and smooth face.
3. DRINK WATER, STAY HYDRATED - Water is a good skin best friend. Try to drink as much water as you can, it will help to brighten your complexion and you will get the real natural glow from within that we all try to recreate with highlighter. It is also good for your overall health and will help you eliminate toxines in your all body.
4. TAKE ONE NO MAKE UP DAY IN THE WEEK - I know it can be hard for a lot of us. Recently I spend at least one day each week at home working on my thesis so I don't feel the need to wear make up. If you get the chance, try to let your skin breathe, or use a lightweight base, such as a CC cream, or a tinted moisturizer.
5. EAT CLEAN - Diet is key to get a good skin. Try to avoid to eat too much processed food, don't have too many dairy products since they tend to favorise breakouts, and eat a lot of fruits ansd vegetable. However, I am not on that vegan all crazy healthy food trend. I go to Mac Donald, I eat junk time to time so keep in mind that you have to treat yourself once in a while. Something I would however not recommend is smocking. Even if you don't see the effect immediatly, believe me your skin is going to kindly remind you your mistakes in a few years.
