Skincare Tips To Keep Your Skin Blemish-Free

 (Collaborative Post)

 Once you enter your 20s and beyond, blemishes can come out of nowhere. Didn’t you leave those days behind with your teenage years? The truth is that spots and pimples can happen to anyone, well into adulthood and there are several reasons why.

A lot of breakouts can be caused by hormones, while others can be influenced by diet and lifestyle habits that could otherwise be prevented. By following different tips to help prevent blemishes, you can keep your skin as clear as possible.

Check out these essential skincare tips to keep your skin blemish-free.

Always remove makeup at night

Removing your makeup before you go to bed is the ultimate skincare rule. But let’s face it, how many of us have gone to bed after a heavy night or couldn’t be bothered to take the makeup off? 

Getting into the habit of removing makeup at night gives your skin the chance to breathe. It also gives you the chance to apply beneficial skincare products that your skin can absorb overnight.  

There are a lot of effective techniques for removing makeup, but makeup removing cloths with some micellar water can be particularly useful to remove makeup gently and leave your face glowing and clean.

Adopt an effective skincare routine

The right skincare routine can make all the difference to your skin. Choosing products that are right for your skin type will help you experience the most benefits, leaving you with skin that glows. Your day and night skincare routine should feature a cleanser, toner and moisturiser as a minimum, but you can also apply serum, masks and oil to provide you with further benefits.

If you’re unsure about the right skincare for your needs, book a facial and speak to an expert. They can recommend products that will help improve your skin, and show you how to use them too.

Clean your makeup brushes

Your makeup brushes can be a key cause behind blemishes. If you don’t wash them regularly, they could end up collecting unwanted bacteria, which then makes its way onto your skin, clogging your pores. Get into a routine of cleaning your makeup brushes regularly - at least once a week if you can. This will not only help keep your skin clear, but it will help your brushes last longer too.

Change your bedding regularly

Did you know your bedding can be responsible for causing breakouts. The oils from your hair, as well as sweat can mean your bedding becomes a big contributor to your breakouts. Aim to change your bedding once a week, and flip your pillowcases over regularly to help give your skin a boost. The summer can be particularly uncomfortable, so you might want to change your bedding to a light, natural fabric like cotton to help give your skin the chance to breathe at night.

Sleep on a silk pillow

Changing your bedding regularly is a good way to keep blemishes at bay, but you could also sleep on a silk pillowcase to help keep your skin clear. Silk pillowcases have a lot of benefits for your skin, but they can also help protect your hair from breakage and leave it frizz-free. If a silk pillow isn’t your thing, you could also consider a silk sleep turban instead to keep your hair and skin looking their best.

Pay attention to your glasses

Do you clean your glasses regularly? They could be another reason behind some unwanted blemishes. You should clean the edges of your glasses with some antibacterial wipes, and make sure you store them in a case when they’re not in use.

You should also consider the style of your glasses, especially if you’re noticing breakouts around where your glasses sit. You’ve got the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some designer frames and switch up your look. Don’t forget to clean your sunglasses too - they can easily end up caked in makeup and sweat on a hot summer day.

Hydrate and nourish

Your nutrition is important for maintaining clear and glowing skin. Firstly, you should stay hydrated by drinking at least two litres of water a day.

Secondly, maintaining a healthy, balanced diet can help keep your skin looking radiant. You should avoid processed foods as much as possible, and focus on a healthy mix of protein, carbohydrates and fats to give your body the nutrition it needs.

Superfoods such as spinach, avocados, etc., are packed with nutrients that can also benefit your skin. They are rich in antioxidants, providing various health benefits including boosted immunity and fighting against the free-radicals that could cause your skin to age quicker. 

While it’s not always easy, cutting down on your alcohol intake, as well as the junk food you eat can also help you skin radiate with health.

Use the right SPF formula

Do you tend to use sun cream as a face cream in the summer? The oily, rich formula could be causing you to break out. There are some great face creams that contain SPF that will nourish your skin without leaving it greasy. Ideal for wearing under makeup, your skin will be protected, but it will also have a great base for keeping blemishes at bay.

Go lighter in warmer weather

As the temperatures increase, the amount of makeup you wear should decrease. Having a lighter base can help your skin breathe and can help you sweat less under your makeup. Choose products that are designed to be long-lasting and consider some sheer formulas to create a more natural, glowing look. A sweat-proof look is easy to achieve with the right products, helping your makeup last on those particularly hot days. Let your natural radiance will shine through, and your skin will thank you for it.

Keeping your skin blemish-free can feel like an endless battle. But with the right skincare products and some healthier habits, you can see an improvement in your skin’s appearance. Pay attention to potential triggers and change up your habits to help you take better care of your skin.
