Scarring from untreated acne

Eat Well - Exercise - Cleanse - Tone - moisturise

Acne is a fact of life for most teenagers and in some way it can be seen as a right of passage. There is no point getting too upset by them, rather is best accept the fact and be proactive in your own treatment and self-care. Here are some home grown tips on the basics of skin care to help prevent and treat acne.

Step 1: Eat well

  • A diet rich in greasy, fatty, sweet and processed foods will block your pores and increase your chances to experience severe acne.
  • An organic diet with plenty of fresh fruits and veggies will give your body a fighting chance to minimise the likelihood and severity of acne.
  • A good diet strengthens your immune system and reduces the likelihood of infections.

Step 2: Exercise

  • Woking up a sweat tones your bodies muscular system and exercises your skin.
  • Get enough sleep as a lack of sleep impairs your metabolism.

Step 3: Cleanse

  • Wash your hands before touching your face, especially if you have zits. It's the dirt on your hands and nails than can cause infections.
  • Wash your face with your favourite cleanser or soap, but donít use something with harsh chemicals in it since it might strip the good oils from your face and leave it dry.
  • Be sure to rub your cleanser into your skin for 2-3 minutes at least, or the product wonít be able to perform its duty.

Wash with warm water and rinse with cold.

Step 4: Tone

  • If you are using a toner, the most important thing is to change your cotton ball or its surface once you apply your toner on breakouts. If you use one cotton ball on your whole face while some areas are breaking out, you might end up spreading the bacteria. Save your breakout spots to last. When applying toner, concentrate on the oily zones of your face so that the product can do itís job better.
  • If you are not using a toner, rub an ice cube on your face. It works wonders!! Not only will it tighten your pores, but it will also reduce inflammation and prevent breakouts & itís great for getting rid of redness.

Step 5: Moisturize

  • Wash your hands again!! This is the perfect time for the bacteria on your fingers to transform to your face. Donít let that happen. Even the products in your bathroom have bacteria on them, so always wash your hands before you moisturize. I recommend using natural oils like coconut or jojoba to hydrate your skin really well.

Step 6: Spot Treat

  • When youíre using a spot treatment, donít build up a couple of products on top of each other. This will reduce the effectiveness of the products and might irritate the skin. You can use tea tree oil by gently rubbing it in the skin after shower when the pores are really open.

Step 7: Exfoliate

  • The key to exfoliation is: longer, not harder! Over exfoliating can irritate the skin and cause breakouts instead of preventing them. Try using a gentle exfoliator with small beads. I recommend DIY exfoliators instead of chemical ones - my favourite is honey + cinnamon! The ingredients are antibacterial, and it will leave the skin incredibly smooth!

Should I squeeze my zits?

  • Squeezing your zits as a calculated choice.
    • When you squeeze a witehead, the removal of the pass can sometimes accelerate healing. But sometimes, it can cause an infection and make the problem worse. If the past that you squeeze out contacts other parts of your skin, it may cause new infections.
    • When you squeeze a blackhead, you are trying to squeeze out the body of the growing infection. Sometimes you may be successful, but quite often you may simply make it worse.
    • Most teenagers will experiment with squeezing their zits, but you have to remember that it's not going to stop them from coming back.

Avoid harsh chemicals

  • Skin is sensitive and it will react to harsh chemicals and irritants in different ways. The first symptoms are itching, irritation and a change in skin colour. The secondary effects may include swelling and a change in skin texture. If you are unsure about any product, do a spot test by putting a tiny amount on the inside of your forearm and leaving it for twenty-four hours before applying any to your face or other sensitive area. If you see any reaction, you will know that this product could be harmful and you should not use it.

And if you look closely at the ingredients on those bottles and jars, chances are you will see quite a list of ingredients that you can't even pronounce never mind understand.

The herbs help support your skin by rebuilding cells and that means that you will see less inflammation, swelling and scarring from acne. The unique herbal formula will work with our body's internal system to permanently eliminate acne.
  • Clear Pores Facial Protection Cream

    After you have used the Deep Facial Wash and your pores are clean and unclogged, then it is very important to keep your clear skin clean for longer.
