Clear skin doesn’t happen overnight. To help get blemish-free skin, you should follow a consistent skincare routine customized to your skin’s specific needs. Unfortunately, achieving clear skin can also come down to a few key factors that may be out of your control.
Genetics plays a big role in determining your skin type. If your skin is naturally prone to acne and other blemishes, you may need to put more effort into your skincare routine. Learning about your skin and how it responds to certain skincare products, ingredients, and routines is an essential part of achieving the type of skin you’re looking for.
During your day, your skin can come into contact with makeup, sweat, dirt, bacteria, and everyday grime. Prevent blemishes by cleansing your skin twice a day with an acne cleanser. Washing your face once in the morning and once again before you go to sleep can help wash away pore-clogging material on your skin. If you have oily skin, try an acne face wash with Witch Hazel.
Use an exfoliating scrub two to three times a week to help clean out your pores and leave your skin feeling touchably smooth. Scrubs help to remove dead skin cells that can lead to clogged pores and help refine your skin.
Applying toner with salicylic acid after cleansing and exfoliating your skin can help you get clearer skin and reduce blemishes. Learn more about how to use toner by visiting our blog.
If stubborn blackheads are preventing you from a clear complexion, use a pore strip instead of picking at your skin! Pore strips safely remove blackheads by lifting pore plugs out of your skin. If you squeeze your pores to remove blackheads and acne, you can make your skin even worse by damaging your skin and leading to inflamed pores.
