Which woman on earth does not wish for a clear, glowing skin? It is a dream for almost every woman we know to have spot-free, clear skin, albeit a distant one. But these ten commandments for clear skin will definitely help you achieve that dream.
There are certain rules that a woman with clear skin follows. Sure, when you are younger, you can get away with not following ANY rules. But after a certain age in your life, you will start seeing the results of all that rule-breaking on your skin.
In order to avoid all that from happening, you must follow these rules for your skin. Your skin cannot take too much after a certain point of time in your life, and that is why these rules exist. So, keep reading to find out more on what are these commandments for clear skin!
1. Clean Your Face Without Fail:
Always make sure you clean your face. Be sure to remove makeup residues. This is why it is important to wash your face in the morning, at night and after a workout.
2. Don't Pop Those Zits:
It can be really difficult to resist the temptation of popping zits and pimples, but popping your pimples can only lead to further inflammation, scarring and yes, more acne and pimples.
3. Don't Touch Your Face Too Much:
Touching your face can transfer the dirt and oils from your hands to your face. This can make the dirt get clogged up in your pores, if they are open. So, avoid touching your face more than needed.
We cannot emphasise just how much of a difference a good toner can make. It can prevent breakouts, shrink the size of your pores and even give you clearer skin. Just be sure to use a good toner and not the one that is mostly like glorified water.
Scrubbing your skin helps get rid of dead skin cells to give way to glowing skin; and if you scrub your skin at least once a week, you wouldn't need expensive treatments like bleaching and facials.
6. But, Don't Over Scrub:
Like all things, too much of scrubbing can be bad for you, as it can strip your face of its natural oils and open up your pores. Stick to scrubbing just once a week.
7. Avoid Stressing:
Stress is one of the main culprits of bad skin. Try to relax yourself. If you feel yourself losing it, try listening to some calming music, take deep breaths, or snif some lavender oil, which is known to provide a calming effect.
8. Protect Your Skin From The Sun:
Make sure you use protection on your skin. Use an SPF of at least 30 before you step out of your home, and yes, even when you can't visibly see the sunlight.
9. Stick To Basics:
Stick to basic skincare products that are gentle on the skin. Avoid products that have tall claims of whitening or any other such things. We'd always say it is best to opt for home remedies that are natural, safe and sans side effects.
10. Treat Your Skin With The Right Treatment:
Use a skin treatment according to your skin type. For example, if you are prone to acne, use a spot treatment even if you don't have spots yet. This helps avoid further spots from cropping up.
