They say that beauty is only skin deep. However in some cases, a book can be judged by its cover. Having clear skin can give one a high level of confidence. Acne however, can impede this, with it being attributed to low self-esteem. Acne does not only affect adolescents but also many adults. So what can one do in the pursuit of clear skin? Let’s take a look at how to get clear skin.

How to get clear skin

By giving your skin the everyday care it needs, it will result in a flawless complexion, even as you age. Here are some tips for how to get clear skin naturally which is perfect for all skin types.

  • There are many reasons to why drinking water is so important. It rehydrates the skin. It is an all-natural moisturizer. Water assists your kidneys and flush unwanted chemicals out of the body, therefore ridding it of toxins that result in unwanted acne. What’s more? It keeps the body cells healthy. And when they are healthy, your skin will be too.
  • Always go for mineral-based makeup. This type of makeup is completely organic, which means they do not have a lot of harsh chemicals that can cause your skin to actually react. The possibility of developing allergic reactions is less likely.
  • Wash the face at all times. Make sure that you do not do it haphazardly. Those hard to see dusts and oils will eventually clog your pores, causing you to get breakouts.
  • Change the pillow cases and bed sheets regularly. Your skin regimen should not end the moment that you wash your face before bedtime. In case you may not be aware – pillowcases and even the bed sheets are a good breeding ground for bacteria which will only worsen your skin problem.
  • Choose your products wisely. Before you decide to buy a skin care product, make sure that you have taken time to research the ingredients. They may contain harmful chemicals that will not be ideal for you, especially for your skin type. It is always best to stick with those that have all-natural and organic ingredients in them.
  • Take an inventory on the foods you eat. Here is the truth. Foods that are high in fat can actually cause your hormones to go out of whack. This is because high levels of fat in the blood may affect the production of hormones. Higher levels of hormones may cause acne to worsen. If you are already suffering from acne and continue to eat these types of foods, expect your skin issues to become worse. A meal with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables will assist with skin acne and general health. Most health experts also agree that fatty and oily foods should be avoided.      

A misconception in how to get clear skin naturally is whether to squeeze, pop, or pull the head out of the pimple in order to clear the affected area quicker. The fact of the matter is most dermatologists recommend against this. The reason being is that it can cause scarring which can make the acne a lot worse. If you are going touch the affected area, make sure that the fingers are clean as well as the affected area. This will ensure that the oil excreted from the area does not spread to unaffected pores.
