We all suffer from bad skin from time to time, it can appear out of nowhere and has us searching through the internet looking for solutions. There is no magic solution, the key is to create a skin care routine that works for you. If you know what skin type you have and what triggers a breakout, you’ll know what to avoid and what products are best for your skin.
Get Rid of Harsh Chemicals > Some skin care products contain harsh chemicals that aren’t suitable for most skin types. If you have a normal skin type, you can get away with using all kinds of products, but most of us aren’t so lucky. If you’ve dry, oily or sensitive skin, you should avoid using chemical peels or products which include strong chemicals. If you suffer from dry skin, reach for a face mask (or มาร์ค หน้า in Thai) to improve moisture and hydration. Always read the label when choosing a skin care product, especially if your skin isn’t in the low-maintenance category.
Opt for Non-comedogenic Makeup > If you are having a bad skin day, the first thing you’ll want to do is cover it up using layers of makeup, this is a normal response to a breakout. But covering your face with layers of makeup has a negative effect on your skin. Although it temporarily disguises the flareup, it doesn’t get to the root of the problem. Furthermore, it can make the breakout a lot worse. If you want makeup that won’t make breakouts any worse, opt for non-comedogenic makeup.
Keep a Clean Environment > Many people forget that the more your skin encounters bacteria the more chance you have of suffering a breakout. Dirt and germs are everywhere in your home and outdoors, the best way of avoiding contact with your face is to wash your hands after every trip to the bathroom and give extra attention to areas such as your pillows and makeup brushes. When you sleep, your pillow comes into contact with saliva, makeup and skin oils, if not cleaned regularly, bacteria are allowed to breathe.
Balanced Diet > Apart from having the right skin care products for your face, you mustn’t forget to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Eating plenty of nutrients, keeping your body hydrated and consuming food with antioxidants is vitally important when it comes to taking care of your skin.
Take it Easy > Going overboard with your skin care routine can have a negative impact on your skin, it will make acne worse and cause more outbreaks. You shouldn’t scrub your face with harsh chemicals, if you are acne prone, wash your face using a mild cleanser and clean it off with lukewarm water when you’ve finished.
Keeping your skin clear and free from outbreaks doesn’t have to be a challenge. The best way to start is to write down a list of all the potential factors that trigger an outbreak and find a way to deal with them. If you find oil free soaps work better on your specific skin type, stick with a product that works for you.
