Skincare Hacks for Acne-Prone Skin
Everyone wants the inside scoop on skincare hacks for acne-prone skin.
Let's face it.
Unless you’re one of the immensely blessed folks who never break out, you understand the frustration that comes with acne.
Acne breakouts occur for a wide variety of reasons, and when it makes an unwanted appearance, you will do almost anything to clear up your skin.
Whether you deal with cystic acne, white heads, black heads, or the occasional breakout from fast food, you need some tip on how to clear it up.
So, you try all the remedies, but nothing seems to work.
This is what makes it so frustrating.
How do you know what to change to clear your skin up?!
Whether you struggle with it consistently or it just decided to make a grand entrance into your life, we’ve got you covered with some skincare hacks to start with.
If you follow these tips, you should see your skin improve in little to no time!
Wash Your Face Twice a Day
We know it seems a little too straightforward to say, “wash your face,” but it’s one of the most important things you have to do.
It’s essential to wash your face twice a day so you can reduce oil, dirt, and debris that you contact throughout the day. If you have oily skin, it’s vital to wash at least twice a day because the excess oil is your enemy and will cause more pimples to plague you!
It’s easy to catch a bout of laziness and “skip” it before bed, but if you push through and commit to two times a day, you’ll see a difference in your skin.
Utilize Natural Skincare Products
Yayyy, we’ve reached our favorite topic—natural products!
We know plenty of people who have shelled out the big bucks for some big-name skincare brands, only to experience breakouts and lackluster skin.
I’m talking to myself too—why I started making my own products.
There are plenty of natural routes to explore if you have acne-prone skin. For starters, you can try herbal-based cleaners with natural, gentle ingredients like turmeric oil, marshmallow extract, licorice root, aloe vera, and plenty others.
Side note: we’re currently formulating a cleaner for acne-prone skin, so stay tuned.
It’s also extremely effective to add our Turmeric & Neem Pore Detox Mask into your weekly skincare routine.
Turmeric is a great way to fade dark acne scars or hyperpigmentation spots. When combined with bentonite clay, you get a powerful pore to cleanse that pulls dirt, oil, and bacteria out of the pores.
We could go on and on for days about natural ingredients and how incredible the effects are—but let’s get on to the next section.
Watch What You Eat
We all want to have a lil’ cheat meal every now and then, but it’s when you keep having those cheat meals that you’ll start to see the effects hit your skin.
Greasy foods, foods high in sugar, processed foods, and dairy (for some people) may all plan a part in your skin breaking out. These types of foods are horrible for our skin, regardless of how good they taste.
Your body responds by cranking out more insulin, which increases skin oil production and contributes to the clogging of follicles.
Shall we dare say you are what you eat?
Change Your Sheets and Towels
This is something so simple but easily overlooked. We encounter dirt and bacteria throughout the day. Some of it is naturally going to transfer onto the things in your home, including your sheets and pillowcase.
Also, don’t forget your hair carries a lot of dirt and oil, which is also on the pillow!
Don’t Skip the Moisturizer
You might think you need to let your skin “dry out” to clear up pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads.
This is a common misconception.
Don’t skip the moisturizer! Instead, look for a moisturizer that won’t clog your pores. The right moisturizer can reduce inflammation, oil production and even help stimulate cell turnover.
You can go with a water-based moisturizer or even a herbal serum like our “Get Ya Glow On” Brightening Oil.
This natural moisturizer has a non-comedogenic argan oil base (won’t clog your pores) and other additions like Turmeric oil (anti-inflammatory), Lemon essential oil (brightens and enhances glow), and Carrot Seed Oil (antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties).
We don’t want to brag or anything, but this is one of the best natural face moisturizers on the market!
Also, when using an oil-based moisturizer, keep in mind you only need 1-2 drops—a little goes a long way.
