Tips For Clear Skin

Thursday, November 19, 2015

1. It may seem obvious to those of you who are very much into skin care, but for those not in the know, then sleeping with your make up on is a BIG NO NO! Sleeping with make up on not only blocks your pours but can also cause bad acne breakouts. So make sure you're removing your make up at night!

2. Sunscreen isn't just for the beach; make sure you apply SPF before applying make up alternately check that your primer or foundation contains SPF. This protects your skin from sun damage as well as keeping those pesky wrinkles at bay!

3. As the seasons change, so should your skincare. The lightweight moisturiser you use in the summer should be a heavy cream in the winter, as your skin needs more moisture in the colder months.

4. Deep clean your make up brushes every two weeks! The amount of product and bacteria that build up within two weeks is crazy! And the longer you wait to clean your brushes, the longer you're putting bacteria onto your skin causing breakouts. To deep clean your brushes use warm water and a mild anti-bacterial soap.

5. Putting your mobile phone to your face when talking on the phone can also cause breakouts as your phone is covered in bacteria, so make sure you wipe your phone over regularly with an anti-bacterial wipe.

6. Steam and hot water will open the skins pours whilst cold water and air will help to close them. Never apply your make up directly after using a hot flannel on your face or after a hot shower, because when your pours are open they will immediately absorb the make up, clogging your pours. Wait around 10-15 min to apply make up.

7. Try going without makeup for one day a week over the weekend to let your skin breathe.
8. If you're prone to hormonal breakouts, then try to avoid spot treatments and instead use a salicylic acid cleanser all over your entire face.
