Acne is a real buzz-kill! No one feels great when they have red bumps all over their face. Not to mention the inflamed and taut skin can be very uncomfortable and downright painful! But don’t get down, and don’t blame yourself! Acne is caused by excess oil production, and when there is extreme hormonal change or hormonal imbalance. Most people get acne at some stage, and the good news is, it doesn’t last forever!
There ARE ways to deal with and minimize acne, both long-term lifestyle habits and daily skincare rituals, and a few quick fixes too, for when that acne has just popped out to get you!
Drinking a lot of water consistently is one of the BEST ways to keep acne under control. Not only will this keep your skin hydrated, but it also flushes and cleans all the systems of the body, including the skin, More water = clearer skin – ALWAYS! Eating well helps too – lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and less sugar create a less ‘inflammatory’ environment in the body, which means less tendency toward acne breakouts.
There is not much you can do about hormonal changes – whether it’s menstrual or another hormonal change, but you can give your skin and your moods a boost by preserving the water and food rule – stay healthy!
There are also loads of great products that you can use that have been gently and specifically formulated for acne-prone and oily skin. Check it out!
