Additional Tips To Get Clear Skin

Eat A Balanced Diet

Speaking of tips to get clear skin, it’s time to talk about your diet. Balanced diet plays a vital role in getting clear skin. Include fresh fruits/juices and green leafy vegetables in your diet.

Clean Makeup Brushes

Clean your make-up brushes at least once every two weeks. Bacteria breed in moist areas, and brushes which come in regular contact with liquid/ creamy make-up products are potential breeding grounds for bacteria. Thus, they need to be cleaned every week, preferably. Brushes that are less frequently used, or used for dry makeup products, can be cleaned every two weeks. Wash the brushes with shampoo and let them dry overnight.

Remove Makeup

Remove your makeup before going to bed. Our skin regenerates and repairs itself while we’re sleeping. So, if you don’t remove the makeup from your skin, you’ll end up with clogged pores and your skin will be prone to breakouts. Use olive oil or a makeup remover to remove all traces of makeup from the face.

Following the above tips will ensure that you get clear, glowing skin in a few weeks. If you have any other queries, leave us a comment and we will get back to you.

    Hi Nethra, it is very common for an acne or pimple break out when you are in your teens. this happens due to lot of hormonal changes and internal body changes. Acne and pimples while you reach puberty is nothing to fret about. This is the time to develop a daily skincare routine. Here are some basic strategies that can be easily included as a part of your adolescent’s daily routine:
    1. Gently wash your face twice a day (morning and night) and after exercise. Use a alcohol-free and mild face wash.
    2. Avoid make -up. Applying any sort of make up products may aggravate the skin. Keep it clean and simple.
    3. Keep your hair and scalp dirt and dandruff free. Oily scalp may affect the skin of your forehead and neck region.
    4. Do not pick or pop your pimples with your finger nails.. this may spread the infection and leave marks.
    5. Finally, be patient. Every teenager goes through this phase. It may take time to show results but with good care, proper diet, exercise and rest… you will see the difference.
