Ladies, Check Out These 12 Tips On How To Get A Clear Skin




To get clear skin is not rocket science but here are some tips that would ensure you get the skin you so desire. There are different skin types ranging from the dry, oily, sensitive, combination, aged skin & each has their unique ways of maintaining their smoothness & youthfulness.


I have highlighted 12 tips to get you started on your skin care journey.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #1: DON’T POP!

If you’re after a clear skin, the habit of popping pimples when you notice them on your face or when it seems ripe should come to a HALT!

As much as it may seem as the fastest solution to getting rid of it especially when you have an event or important occasion to show up for, you are also exposing your face to scarring, acnes & bacteria from your hands & the air as it turns into an open wound after popping it.

Pro tip: apply white toothpaste (any plain white toothpaste) a night before when you notice it to reduce the visibility of the pimple the next day.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #2: CLEANSE TWICE A DAY AND AFTER SWEATING.

This is basically rule number one of skincare, but it’s so important that we’re repeating it again! Let’s be honest; we’d all be lying if we said we never, ever went to bed without washing our face properly. Sometimes it happens, but to really ensure your clearest complexion possible, you need to follow a clear skin routine twice per day plus after breaking a sweat. Whether rain or shine or a hectic schedule, there’s no excuse not to wash or cleanser your face with a mild facial cleanser at these times. I strongly recommend that those with acne-prone skin cleanse every morning and night and after every sweat session.

Use a mild facial cleanser that’s formulated to remove impurities from the skin without over-drying, such as the Perfect Glow Organics Facial Cleanser. Toss makeup removing wipes or micellar water in your gym bag so you can easily swipe away sweat after your next workout, too.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #3: EXFOLIATE

When it comes to achieving clear skin, exfoliating should be at the top of your list.The idea of dead skin cells on your face is not too pleasing, after all. While it’s easy to think that exfoliation is only for specific skin types, the truth is, every skin type can benefit from it. And the only way to do so is to use the right products without overdoing it. Some skin types can handle daily exfoliation, while others can only handle it once a week. Listen to your skin, and you’ll be good to go.

Over here in Lagos, Nigeria, our weather is known to be as unstable as Naira is to Dollar so you can’t skip exfoliating. Whenever you step into the sun or you get stuck in traffic for hours once you get home I always advise to exfoliate because that stress is not good for the skin glow.

As for exfoliation we recommend Perfect Glow Organics Milky Exfoliating Face and Body scrub, which is made with a blend of sea salt, goat milk and tea tree oil. This one will get the job done, it’s gentle on the skin, deals with white heads and black heads, to reveal a well relaxed & smooth skin.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #4: STEAMING

This one in particular is under emphasized and most times seen as a time waster but I’m here to tell you that this step should be your holy grail.

Steaming your face is a relaxing way to treat yourself at the end of a long day. It helps to increase circulation in your face and opens your pores so you can cleanse away impurities. To do a steam facial, you start with a steam, then use a mask to draw dirt from your pores and finish with toner and moisturizer.

Now there are a lot of steaming machines you could get from cosmetologists or dermatologists around you and then there’s the old-fashioned way that has never failed.

Pro-tip: boil water, let it boil so that you can see the steam coming out. Instantly pour it in a bowl don’t let the steam escape, grab a thick towel or duvet, drape over your head & allow the steam heat your face for 5-10 minutes then do a facial mask.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #5: USE AN EXFOLIATING FACE MASK

Cleansing is an absolute must, as we’ve already established, but there’s another step you can take in your weekly skin care routine to keep breakouts at bay: using an exfoliating face mask. Try using the Perfect Glow Organics Pure Clay Exfoliating and Refining Face Mask which helps remove dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from our skin, all of which can contribute to the development of those unwanted pimples, once or twice per week.

Bonus: Applying a face mask can also help lower those stress levels!

CLEAR SKIN TIP #6: MANAGE YOUR STRESS LEVELS

We know, we know, keeping stress levels low is so much easier said than done! Still, per the hustle and bustle periods of high stress can make your skin more sensitive and also trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage clear skin, treat yourself to some much-deserved moments of self-care that can help mitigate stress. Try a nice hot bath or applying a face mask, and vow to get enough sleep and make time for the things you enjoy.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #7: USE THESE ACNE-FIGHTING INGREDIENTS

When it comes to acne products, there are certain ingredients you’ll want to look out for, including benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and retinoids. Pick one of these ingredients to try, then give it time to work. If your acne is still being stubborn after four weeks, make an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist to determine your best plan of action. As for what not to do, don’t introduce your complexion to every acne-fighting ingredient out there, you don’t want to overwhelm your skin.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #8: REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP AT NIGHT

We cannot stress this enough, always remove your makeup before you hit the hay! When your makeup sits on your skin overnight, it can mix with dirt and oils on the surface of your skin, which can cause blemishes to pop up. Make sure you’re completely removing your makeup before you catch any Z’s.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #9: CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES

When you’re looking for the answers for how to get clear skin, one of the easiest things you can do is ensure that your makeup brushes and tools are regularly cleaned. Our makeup brushes collect dirt, oil, and other impurities that can wreak havoc on our skin. So I recommend cleaning your makeup brushes and tools every seven to ten days to protect your skin.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #10: ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN

If you haven’t been diligent about sun protection, consider this your sign to start. Spending prolonged periods of time in the sun sans proper protection can damage your skin and lead to visible signs of aging showing up down the road. To protect your skin, add a broad-spectrum sunscreen or a moisturizer with SPF to your clear skin routine.

Keep in mind, you should always take additional sun protection measures as well. Take steps to limit your time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which are peak hours), seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #11: CONSIDER A CLEAR SKIN DIET

A clear skin diet involves drinking of more water, eating more veggies and fruits, cutting out carbonated drinks and reducing intake of sugar content. There is no denying that a solid skin care routine is the key to clear skin. However, there is research supporting the idea that what you eat plays a part in how your skin looks, too.

Increasing your water intake can help boost your skin’s hydration levels. Additionally, vitamin C has been linked to providing anti-aging benefits to the skin. So, why not adopt a clear skin diet with foods such as grapefruits and oranges, broccoli, strawberries, cantaloupe, baked potatoes, and tomatoes, which has been revealed are excellent sources of vitamin C.

CLEAR SKIN TIP #12: EXERCISE REGULARLY

“We tend to focus on the cardiovascular benefits of physical activity and those are important. But anything that promotes healthy circulation also helps keep your skin healthy and vibrant,” says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty.

If you have dermatological conditions such as acne, rosacea or psoriasis you may need to take special care to keep your skin protected while exercising. But don’t let skin problems prevent you from being active. Here’s why.
By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. “Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin,” says Marmur. In addition to providing oxygen, blood flow also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Contrary to some claims, exercise doesn’t detoxify the skin. The job of neutralizing toxins belongs mostly to the liver. “But by increasing blood flow, a bout of exercise helps flush cellular debris out of the system,” Marmur tells WebMD. “You can think of it as cleansing your skin from the inside.”
