Acne is one of those skin conditions that’s never fun to deal with. People of all ages experience breakouts, even adults.
Not having a clear complexion is frustrating!
Thankfully, there are some things you do to battle the skin impurities that threaten to take over. Wouldn’t it be nice not having to worry about the acne on your face and other parts of your body?
Try these five techniques to banish acne once and for all. It’s time to make way for a clearer and radiant complexion!
1. Clean Up Your Diet
If you’re eating lots of chips and cookies as of late, that could be the cause of your breakouts. Processed foods like cookies, chips, and bread are likely affecting your skin.
A diet high in sugar and simple carbohydrates may cause your acne to flare up without warning.
Luckily there’s something you can do about your diet. Try cutting out sugar and simple carbohydrates. Or, at least, try to cut back on how much you’re eating.
If you make an effort to eat healthier foods like more fruits and veggies, your skin will look a lot better.
2. Find a Facial Cleanser That Works
Using a facial cleanser morning and night, or at least once a day is an excellent way to care for your skin. A cleanser takes care of impurities that develop on your face. And, if it’s the right cleanser, it’ll clean your skin without stripping it of its moisture.
It may take some trial and error to find a skin cleanser that works for you. If you have sensitive skin, look for a mild, gentle cleanser.
And look for ingredients that you may be allergic to. Otherwise, selecting the wrong cleanser can make your acne worse!
3. Don’t Touch Your Face
It’s easy to have a habit of resting your hands under your chin while watching television. It’s relaxing and helps you enjoy the show! And yet, the next day you wake up with zits forming on your neck and chin!
It’s crazy how fast acne forms, but if you’re sensitive to bacteria (most of us are!), it’s best to keep your hands away from your face.
Instead of touching your face, rest your head on a pillow while watching TV.
And if you like to pick your face, this is a habit you must also stop. You don’t want to get scars from picking at your acne!
4. Use CBD Topicals on Your Skin
Did you know that CBD can help clear up your skin?
Since CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, when applied to the skin, it improves its condition. Acne causes inflammation, so using CBD can calm your skin and kick acne to the curb.
Not only do CBD topicals reduce inflammation of the skin, but they can lessen the amount of oil that causes acne. When there’s too much sebum, your skin breaks out more. CBD reduces the amount of sebum that’s in your skin, which means there’s less acne. Woohoo!
Besides helping clear up the skin, CBD topicals offer other benefits too. For example, it can provide pain relief caused by muscle pain and nerve damage.
There’s no doubt that CBD has multiple benefits for the skin, so try it out for acne. And, use CBD creams for nerve pain and other skin conditions, too!
5. Keep Calm and Carry On
You’re likely familiar with the expression “keep calm and carry on.” Sometimes it’s easier said than done staying calm, though, isn’t it?
Getting stressed out plays a big part in the condition of your skin. When you’re anxious about certain situations, your skin reacts. It, in return, gets stressed out too and creates acne.
To ease your stress, there are many things you can do. Focus on getting enough rest, doing yoga, talking to a friend, and doing other things that’ll keep you calm.
Even if you’ve dealt with breakouts for a while now, there are always new ways to treat your skin. It could be you’re using products you’re allergic to, or your hormones are out of whack.
Whatever the case may be, sometimes you can’t stop every zit that pops up. You can, however, eat well and do your best to take care of your skin.
Making an effort to improve your skin will result in a clear complexion that glows!
