Does it seem like as you age you are more likely to breakout during odd times of the month? Cleansing your skin on a daily basis can help, but there are other simple things you can do to prevent your skin from erupting.
1. Clean your makeup brushes
Over time makeup brushes can collect oil and bacteria, especially if you have had previous breakouts. This can cause both oily and regular skin to break out. You should be cleaning your brushes at least once a week with a brush cleaner to get the best results. You can also clean your brushes with soap and water. Make sure you do so until the water runs clear, then just lay it on a clean cloth to dry.
2. Change your pillowcase
Think about all the products you put in your hair: hairspray, wax, gel, mousse, etc. When you lay down on your pillow all those chemicals get transferred onto your skin. To prevent blemishes, make it a habit to change your pillowcase at least twice a week. As a shortcut, flip your pillows to the other side when you don’t have time for laundry.
3. Clean your phone
When you answer your phone you press your skin against the screen, causing the bacteria to be transferred onto your skin. If you are breaking out around your chin line, this might be the cause. Make it a habit to clean your phone’s screen once per week with an antibacterial wipe.
4. Give it time
Any time we start a new skin regimen, including cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing, we expect to immediately wake up with amazing outcomes by morning. Be patient! It could take up to six months for results to show. Stick with it and the results will reveal themselves in due time.
Follow these basic steps and you’ll see your skin improve and stay blemish free. And as always, don’t forget to compliment your perfect skin with a flawless custom airbrush tan from Ortanic!
See you next month!
