Struggling with breakouts or blemishes? Women Africa has the following tips to help you retain clear, beautiful skin.
There’s nothing worse than waking up with a giant blemish when you have a big day ahead of you. You know it’ll be bothering you as you go about your business. It’ll be at the back of your mind while you’re giving that important presentation. You’ll be overly aware of it as you’re trying to enjoy your date that night.
And when your face breaks out in pimples on a regular basis, it can seriously affect your confidence. But there are ways to clear up your skin. Here are a few tips that can really help you get rid of those annoying blemishes.
Cut down on the make-up
Make-up is great. Mascara makes your eyes pop and lipstick makes your pout even better. It’s only natural that we feel more confident when we’ve spent twenty minutes on our faces. But makeup isn’t always great for your skin. So, why not try cut down on using make-up?
You don’t need to give it up completely. But make a concerted effort to eliminate makeup from your daily routine. You don’t need to wear makeup to the gym or to do the grocery shopping. You don’t even have to wear makeup to work. You can still do your face up before you go to a fancy event or when you want to feel particularly good. Just use it less often.
Have a good face care routine
Some people can get away with washing their face with soap in the shower, but if you have problem skin you need to do a lot more than just that. To start with, find a good face wash and use it every morning and night. It needs to be a strict part of your routine because you can’t skip a single day.
It’s also really important that you remove your makeup at night (when you wear it). Sleeping with makeup on is really bad for your skin. Even if you just keep face wipes next to your bed, it’s better than not cleaning your face at all.
Treat yourself to a facial
Going for a professional facial is always an enjoyable experience. But it’s also really good for your skin. In fact, experts say you should go for a facial every three to four weeks. But if you don’t have to time to go that often, make an effort to go as often as you can. There’s also the option of purchasing face masks or Afriderm Peeling Gel and doing it yourself at home.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have naturally clear skin. Some have to work for it. But, at the end of the day, it’s completely worth the extra effort. Just remember, you don’t only need to look after your face. You also need to care for your body. So, be sure to moisturise with body cream for dark skin and exfoliate regularly.
