How To Control Breakouts
Everyone gets breakouts every now and then and they don’t stop when you’re passed your teenage years. Spots and pimples are caused by many different things like hormones, bacteria, stress, allergies and diet. If you’re suffering from serious acne, a professional dermatologist is the best thing to help you. If you get a few spots every now and then, these are some tips to help!
Keep things clean, but not too clean.
Breakouts can be caused by bacteria spread from hands and objects like phones and pillowcases. The best things to do to prevent spots is to keep your surroundings clean and making sure you wash your hands before every time you touch your face. In terms of washing your face, it’s important to cleanse your makeup off daily and give your face a brief wash every morning to wash off sweat and oil from the night before.
The mistake that many people make when they have any kind of skin issue is to wash their face too much. Using drying cleansers and harsh scrubs can over strip the skin and leave it dry, therefore overproducing it’s natural oil and causing a buildup of sebum– which results in spots. Using a gentle cleanser twice a day is enough, how about our luxurious Rose Renew Face Wash?
Help from supplements
Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, getting the correct vitamins and supplements is really important to help heal your skin. A lot of companies now do supplements designed to help skin but simply taking omega oils (flax or fish form) will really help. In terms of diet, sugar will make things very irritated and angry so try to avoid it and stick to dark, leafy greens and whole grain foods.
Don’t forget to hydrate
You may be terrified to apply moisturiser over any areas of breakouts but this is also a mistake. Dry skin can become sore and angry, therefore creating more issues for your face. Try our Rose Renew serum for a lightweight lotion that nourishes the skin.
Take a natural approach
Some of the shop bought products to control breakouts can be laced with loads of chemicals that may damage the surrounding skin on your face. Instead, try using a warm compress on the problem areas and press gently. Dry with a clean towel and dab on a small amount of tea tree oil with a cotton bud.
