General Face Care
  • Wash your face with gentle, oil based cleanser; preferably a pH balanced non-detergent one. However, if you have an oily skin all over your face, use a cleanser that contains benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Also take care not to scrub your face later, since irritated skin tends to swell around the pores, which can cause breakouts. You can also skip toning your face later if your face is very dry. However, if you have oily skin and feel that you need toner, apply it only on the T-zone, and rinse it off afterward (leaving it on can dry the skin). Use a clay mask as often as every three days to absorb excess oil.

  • Apply a topical acne treatment containing benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid over your entire face, not just where blemishes have already erupted. Later, at night, never forget to cleanse your make-up off thoroughly before going to bed, so that your skin can breathe freely at night. Then, use a drying spot-treatment product and dab an oil-free moisturizer on dry areas. In the morning, apply an oil-free sunscreen gel over the entire face.

  • Use a small makeup brush to dab a concealer or cream foundation (in the exact same shade as your skin) directly onto the blemish. Use a fingertip to wipe away excess concealer around the blemish and, if necessary, apply another coat of concealer. To stop the redness and swelling in an emergency situation, like a job interview or wedding, ask your doctor for a cortisone injection. It calms down a pimple almost instantly. If you can`t get to your dermatologist, temporarily reduce redness and swelling by dabbing on a drop of drugstore cortisone cream.

  • An occasional face pack of ice is a good tonic for the complexion.

  • Balanced Diet
  • Eat a balanced diet since, what we put in our bodies` shows on our skin.

  • Get at least 7 to 8 hours sleep every night. Lack of sleep will show up under your eyes as dark circles or bags. Proper rest will also benefit your body and your life.

  • Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated. It is best to spread the consumption of water in small amounts over the course of the day to be sure it is properly absorbed.

  • Maintain a regular exercise schedule. Exercise gets the blood moving and creates a healthy body.

  • Get lots of fresh air but avoid prolonged exposure to wind and cold.

  • Avoid the sun and tanning beds. The damage done by ultraviolet rays is long lasting and cannot be reversed.

  • Always wear sunglasses to avoid squinting.

  • Try to achieve a well-balanced life and reduce stress.

  • Exfoliate twice a week to rid your skin of dead cells.

  • Develop a skin care routine for your particular skin type.
