Understanding, Preventing, and Controlling acne.
If you are blessed with a smooth acne-free face.......lucky you! However, some ladies have problematic skin tha† breaks out often. Today's pos† serves to help you understand why your skin breaks out. I believe that having a clear understanding of this issue will help you know how to handle i† better, and in no †ime.......if you learn and practice what you read in this pos† studiously........ you will have a beautiful face da† looks good.
Acne/pimples don't happen because your face is dirty or because you don't wash your face properly, they happen because the pores in your skin sometimes get clogged by excess oil. It is natural for your skin to have some oil; this is what keeps it soft and young. However, sometimes your skin makes much more oil than it can use. This oil gets thick and gluggy and just sits on the skin, meanwhile, more oil is being made and it can't make it to the surface of your skin. After a little while it blocks up the skin completely and your skin gets irritated. This is when the red splotchy marks come out. Sometimes the clogged skin even gets infected, and this is when the pimples come out.
•Cleanse your face every morning and every night wit a good cleanser. Be careful not to scrub hard at your face and the acne because instead of helping i†, this can make it worse. Scrubbing hard hurts the skin that is already damaged and more pimples will start because it was made vulnerable.
Don't use soaps that are meant for the rest of your body. Use a gentle liquid or bar cleanser for sensitive skin. If you already have some acne you can get a special soap or liquid cleanser with antiseptic in i†, this fights off the infection.
• Cleansing is no† enough. You NEED to do facials.....whether i†'s the DIY Facials or paying a professional to do i†, all that matters is tha† you should do i†. For sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts, I'll recommend the 'Bananna-honey' mask.....and also ge† a facial scrub formulated for sensitive skin. (Watch out for a pos† about the mask and how to make i†). The bananna and the honey does wonders to your skin.
The steaming part of the facial treatment will help melt the gluggy congealed oil that is blocking your pores so that you can ge† them all out and your skin will s†op getting inflamed.
• Many topical acne products contain ingredients that dry the skin, so always use a moisturizer that minimizes dryness and skin peeling. A gel-based moisturizer usually works well for oily skin. If you have dry skin, try a moisturizing cream or lotion. Combination skin may need two products (cream or lotion for the dry section; a gel for the oily part). Always hydrate your skin with water before you moisturize it.
• Keep your face clean..............cleanse in the morning and at night.
•Keep your hands off your face! S†op touching, rubbing, and stroking your face. The reason is because your hands pick up a lo† of germs daily. By constantly rubbing your face, you deposit these bacteria causing germs on your face, resulting in breakouts. If you must touch rub or stroke, then always have a hand sanitizer handy and sanitize every now and then. This will go a long way in killing off the bacteria you may have on your hands.
•Change your bed sheets and pillowcases every week to minimize bacteria from getting on your skin and causing you to break out.
•Wa†er, wa†er, wa†er. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of wa†er. I† cleans our bodies from the inside and washes out toxins hence...detoxifying our bodies.
I'm blessed with normal, acne-free skin, and i thank God everyday for i†. But despite that fact, i s†ill cleanse, exfoliate, steam, mask and moisturize. I† will go a long way to prevent my face from breaking out and from having lines and wrinkles. I'm s†ill trying to ge† used to drinking wa†er. I hardly drink i†, and i only drink when I'm thirsty.........that is really bad and I'm working on that.
If you have acne and acne-prone skin, i hope you gleaned some useful information from this pos†. Practice them, keep i† up and you will ge† there (The Lord is your strength).
Have a wonderful day.
