HOW TO GET RID OF PIMPLES AND BLEMISHES - GET BEAUTIFUL CLEAR SKIN
Shiny skin, pesky blackheads and painful red pimples – blemish-prone skin can be incredibly frustrating to deal with. But it need not be! Knowing the right skincare products to use and following some simple guidelines can make all the difference and improve the skin’s overall texture and appearance.
There are many factors that can contribute to breakouts: Hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, psychological stress, unhealthy diet and using unsuitable skincare products. Excessive alcohol and smoking can also have severe detrimental effects on the appearance of the skin. Sadly, there is no magic cure for pimples. The key to maintaining clear skin is rather the combination of good skincare and a healthy lifestyle.
To achieve beautiful and clear skin it is important to understand the role of androgens. These male hormones control the production of sebum in our skin. When they over-stimulate the sebaceous glands, they cause an overproduction of sebum and the excess sebum in combination with bacteria and dead skin cells clogs the follicles, which results in pimples and blackheads.
So the question is: How to get rid of pimples and then prevent future breakouts? First of all, proper cleansing is essential to clear the skin of excess sebum, make-up and other impurities. After cleansing, it is highly recommended to apply an alcohol-free tonic to clear the pores, restore the skin’s pH and reinforce its natural protective barrier. Finish the routine with your go-to serums and moisturizers. Be sure to follow this routine consistently, in the morning and evening. For pimple emergencies we recommend our SOS Spot Concentrate.
More tips to combat breakouts: Regular use of an AHA Peeling and an anti-inflammatory, clarifying face mask is very effective for treating pimples. Use once or twice a week to see a lasting improvement to your skin.
