Living with acne can be really difficult…trust me, i know! When I was hit with bad acne in my early 20′s i was devestated. I remember thinking that the only way to get rid of it was to completely dry out my face. I used every acne product on the market and avoided moisturizer, like as if it was carbs on the atkins diet!
Later I found out the exact opposite. Acne actually gets worse if your skin is too dry! So here are some tips I learned along the way, that hopefully will help you out as well!
- Don’t wash your face more than twice a day!
- Always use a moisturizer! I would suggest to moisturize once or twice a day, depending on your skin type, and to buy one that is both hydrating and oil-free.
- If you are prone to acne, it is so important when wearing make.up, to make sure that you buy products that are oil-free and/or non-comedogenic!
Tip: When washing your face, never completely dry it. Try leaving some water on the surface while applying your moisturizer. The mixture of water and your moisturizer will really help to hydrate your skin! And it feels so refreshing!! (I got this tip from my mom. She has the nicest and softest skin ever!)
Well I hope this helped you out, and don’t forget ladies to always have fun while doing your make.up and don’t forget to wake.up and make.up! I’m Sandy Gold and I’m out!
