Spots are the bane of every girl’s life. You never know when they’re going to appear, where they’re going to pop up, how big they’re going to be and how much they’re going to hurt. All in all they are a big pain in the bum that no one wants in their life. So I’m going to tell you how you can avoid getting them so often. If you suffer from acne you can try these tips to help ease the pain and to keep your face clean and fresh. However, acne sufferers should be reminded that these tips will not get rid of their acne, it is a condition that often needs prescription treatment. These tips stray away from those traditional spot tacklers that you find on the shelves at the supermarket.
Keep It Clean.
So firstly, ensure that you keep your face clean and free of the dirt from the day. Regularly change your bedding as they can keep hold onto dirt and bacteria for ages and if you’re constantly putting your face back onto a dirt patch you will not be helping matters.
Make sure you cleanse and tone your face every morning and night. If you have spots on your face already this will keep the areas clean and prevent them from spreading further. Invest in a good quality exfoliator. Ensure that the exfoliator can be used daily. This means doing your research. Usually, as long as there are only small exfoliating beads in the cream then this can be used daily/twice daily. With this invest in a more substantial exfoliator or microdermabrasion cream and give your face a good scrub once or twice a week just to give your face a powerful scrub.
Tea Tree is your Friend.
Tea Tree has been proven to help tackle blemishes and spots. A lot of brands have Tea Tree in their blemish ranges. Buy yourself a lotion that you can apply to your face every night; applying it at night gives the lotion chance to work. Your body heals itself naturally whilst you sleep, and therefore using the lotion at night will help aid the healing process. You could also invest in a good quality Tea Tree oil. Ask at your local pharmacy counter, 9 times out of 10 they will have some available. Use the oil as a general spot treatment just dabbing them onto the spots to help heal that specific area.
If You Must.
It is always better to leave spots uncovered. Applying makeup over the top of them often makes them worse especially if you don’t clean your makeup brushes regularly. You’re basically putting all the dirt you have just cleaned off back onto your face and starting the process over again. But if you simply must put makeup onto your face then firstly ensure that your makeup brushes are completely clean. Wash them properly at least once a week and give them a wipe with a baby wipe or antiseptic wipe after every use. Use a good green primer, applying green primer over the spots neutralises the red colour making them less obvious under your makeup giving you more confidence.
So, there you go. You’ve got the ideas on how to tackle blemishes, now it’s up to you to put them in motion. The main thing is to ensure that you stay clean, along with anything else that touches your face. If you don’t d anything else, then make sure you do this one thing.
