Face Fitness - How to Get Clear Skin
Help your body fight breakouts by giving it what it needs to stay strong and healthy. Follow these simple daily rules on how to get clear skin - and stay clear - and you may find everyone sees your good health reflected on your face!
There is no miracle diet to clear pimples, but a healthy, balanced diet can help your skin fight breakouts. In general, choose fresh, unprocessed foods from all four food groups and drink eight glasses of water a day, or more when you exercise to keep skin hydrated.
To maintain clear skin, stick to a daily skincare routine. Gently wash your face with a soap-free exfoliating cleanser twice a day to remove excess oil, dirt and dead skin cells. Avoid over washing, which dries out your skin and causes it to produce more oil.
Over sun exposure can make your skin dry, causing it to produce more oil and dead skin cells, creating the ideal environment for blemishes. Avoid excess sun exposure and wear at least SPF 15 sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy. Rest, a good night’s sleep (7-8 hours) can do wonders for your complexion and immune system, which helps to fight breakouts more quickly.
Your skin benefits from an increase in blood flow and blood oxygen level achieved by exercise. If you are prone to body breakouts, wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing when exercising, and shower with a blemish fighting body wash soon after. Our Deep Cleansing Wash is great for keeping body breakouts at bay!
Women with breakouts need to understand that makeup migrates into pores, and that’s why your makeup choices should be oil free and non-comedogenic. Your best choices such as Proactiv Makeup, which are designed for blemish prone skin. Our Blemish Concealer which contains Salicylic Acid actively fights breakouts as your wear it.
Pimples start inside hair follicles, where your sebaceous glands produce the protective oil that keeps skin soft and supple. Hormones control these glands, and psychological stress affects hormone levels. Too much stress can yield too much oil and trigger the breakout cycle. So relax – take a bath, go for a walk, do yoga or any activities that help you feel happy and calm.
