Wash, Wash, Wash!
Despite it being an obvious tip, far too many people don’t wash their face every day, or simply don’t wash it sufficiently. In fact, many people believe that the shampoo which falls from your hair onto your face counts!
Keep a schedule where you give your face a thorough clean every day, remembering to dry it thoroughly before continuing your routine. This is the best way to remove the day and night’s worth of pollutants and toxins from your skin and give you a fresh start for the day ahead.
Use the Right Products
If you are still using the same soap, moisturizer, or cleanser that you were using when you were in college then it’s time to visit the Groupon Coupons page for Kohl’s and update your collection. However, instead of looking for the fanciest option, look for the one which matches your skin type. After all, what served you well during your oily skin adolescent years won’t match the soft and clear skin which you came out of your adolescence with.
We can’t say this enough, so we will say it one more time – Cleanse! Despite what you might think, rinsing the soap off your face isn’t enough to remove all of the sediment which soap can leave behind. This can lead to clogged pores and, you guessed it, pimples!
Each time that you exit the shower, be sure to use a skin-appropriate toner/cleanser with some cotton pads to remove any excess soap or pollutants.
Gently Does It!
If you look at your face in the morning as it looks a mess, it can be tempting to give it a good scrub! And while the first point made mention that you should wash your face thoroughly, you definitely shouldn’t be scrubbing it. Instead, look for an alternative to removing stubborn makeup or dirt, such as purpose designed cleansing clothes and shower towels. Whichever method you choose to use, be sure that you treat your skin with care.
Be Careful of Your Hair
It doesn’t matter if you have dry or oily hair, you are going to sweat and oil is going to accumulate at the follicles on your scalp. When this happens, the sweat and oil can easily make its way onto your hairline and forehead where it can cause seriously clogged pores and blemishes.
The easiest way to remedy this is to both keep your hair away from your face and also to keep your hair clean. The cleaner your hair is, the less likely you are to have facial skin problems.
