Skincare Tips: 4 Simple Steps To Clearer Skin

Your skin can change with each month and with each season. Over the cold winter, the main focus is on keeping skin hydrated and well moisturised. As warmer months are coming, the focus shifts to that of spot care. You will be focusing more on how to keep your skin clear.

Understanding why you get spots and blemishes is important too. Then you know things you should be doing to avoid them in the first place. It is hard to tell exactly what is the cause of whiteheads and blackheads and other spots. It can vary from person to person. There are factors like genetics, hormones, stress and diet, to name a few. Genetic predisposition and hormones are tricky to do anything about. If you can control your skin through other factors like your diet or environment, then it needs to be done.

4 Simple Steps To Clearer Skin

1. Routine

The first thing to do is to keep washing your face and consider using a toner. Wash your face day and night and after things like the gym. You don’t want to trap any dirt against your skin. When you get some spots, it is important to avoid squeezing them. It can be hard not to but it can lead to even more spots. It could also leave marks and scarring. Not a good look.

2. Stay Hydrated

The next thing to do, if you aren’t already, is drink a lot of water. You need to aim for at least 2 litres a day. Drinking a lot of water is obviously good for you and your body, but great for your skin too. It will flush out toxins and keep your skin hydrated. It can even help with dark under-eye circles due to its detoxifying qualities.

3. Chill Out

If you find that you get breakouts when you are feeling a bit stressed, you need to focus on eliminating the stress. It can be easier said than done of course. Think about what is making your life stressful. If it is something that you can stop doing or get rid of, then do. If it is work-related, it can obviously be a little tougher to work on. Think about taking time out for yourself each day. Take up a hobby like boxing or running (sweating is good for your complexion too, you know). You could try having a warm bath or sitting down with a book. After a while it will help your stress levels to reduce and in turn, helps to improve the condition of your skin.

4. Made In The Kitchen

The final point that you need to play close attention to is your diet. Clear skin is often started in the kitchen. Spots and blemishes come from oils in your skin. These can be released from hormones or from what is in your body. You want to avoid fatty, oily foods as much as possible. Fats that are fine to eat are things like avocado and oily fish like mackerel. The essential fatty acids that these provide can work as a natural moisturiser for your skin.

Make sure that every day you are eating a rainbow. Plates full of colourful fruits and vegetables. These foods contain antioxidants that can help to protect your skin and for normal skin cell development.
