    5 Tips to Improving Acne Prone Skin

    Some people are lucky enough to never have an acne breakout, but there are many who have not been so lucky. While most people would complain about the acne on their face, it can actually happen on any part of your body.

    Sometimes the acne is bad enough that some people lose confidence in how they look. Some acne is very severe that they become too inflamed and results in serious scarring on the face or other parts of the body. Acne affects both men and women, albeit a little bit differently. Men tend to experience acne breakouts when they are younger, while women can experience them even until they turn 40.

    In order to reduce the occurrence of acne flare-ups, try some of the tips below so that your skin will improve.

    Don’t Suffer With Dry Skin Anymore: Try These Natural Hacks

    Dealing with dry facial skin can feel like a nightmare. Not only can it lower your confidence but it can also be embarrassing. You may find it difficult to use makeup or you may be dealing with flaking skin. You’ve probably tried a range of different branded products, all claiming to sooth and moisturize your skin. But, when dry skin becomes a problem, there’s nothing better than natural ingredients. Take a look at these natural skin soothers, some of which may already be in your cupboards.

    ice cubes

    Ice

    Although ice won’t cure dry skin, it will help one annoying disadvantage of it. Suffering from dry skin often means that skin becomes itchy. The more you itch your skin, the less likely you are to get rid of the dryness. Go figure! Itching can also lead to the spread of bacteria and infection. So, you’ll need to avoid itchy dry areas as much as possible. If the itching is driving you mad, wrap a few ice cubes in a cloth and gently place the cloth on the itchy areas of skin. This should calm any inflammation and stop the itching.

    whipped shea butter

    Shea Butter

    If you can’t seem to retain moisture after using your regular lotion, it’s time to swap it for Shea butter. It’s one of the best ways to put moisture back into your skin, aside from drinking water. Look for a good organic Shea butter, usually found at your local health store. The consistency of Shea butter is thick but it quickly melts into the skin at body temperature and it doesn’t take too long for the skin to absorb it.

    Heat

    When you’ve got dry skin, it’s very important to know the difference between heat that’s good for your skin and heat that’s bad. For example, dry heat is very bad for dry skin, so if you’re using your car heater on full blast during the Winter, you’re not doing your skin any good. However, short bursts of facial steam can help to restore moisture to your skin. So, it may be worth looking into the best facial steamers, so you can give your skin a luxury treatment at home. It beats sitting in the steam room with a bunch of strangers every other day.

    Oatmeal Facial

    It may not sound like the most pleasant of treatments, but oatmeal has many benefits when you want to put moisture back into your skin. If you think about the consistency it has when added to water, it’s not surprising to find out that oatmeal is full of a type of mucus. This kind of mucus is soothing to the skin and can reduce inflammation. Add some still spring water to your oats until you have a consistency you know will stay in place on your face. You can even add some honey too.

    Aloe Vera

    Aloe Vera has a high-water content so it’s perfect for a night-time mask. Apply some to the face before going to bed and the natural plant extracts will do their work. Just remember to wash your face in the morning, as the gel can be slightly sticky to touch.

    Combating The Plights Of Eczema With A Day-To-Day Guide

    Our skin is the barrier to the physical stresses and strains of the outside world. It’s also the largest organ of the human body. It’s a complex system of nerve endings, membranes and hair follicles. The natural oils secreted by the skin are like the mechanics on a car, keeping it regulated, and operating smoothly. However, not everyone has these oils in abundance or working normally. Eczema affects many people around the world and all too often gets swept underneath the carpet because it’s not seen as a fatal disease. But, it’s a force to be reckoned with and if it’s not properly managed, can make an everyday living, an extremely uncomfortable experience. Everybody is different, and that’s where the issue lies with eczema because unlike more narrow illnesses, the cause of the skin condition is subject to the individual. There a few ways that can guide you through your day-to-day living, to help you improve your health regarding this severe skin condition.

    Know the triggers

    Many things around you can be triggers that cause skin irritations. It’s almost like searching for a needle in a haystack, but it truly could be anything. If your bed has woolen or even cotton sheets, it can give your skin a prickly feeling, which can lead to a tingling, then slight itch. Slowly if you’re lying or sitting on this kind of material, you can suffer from a flare up where your skin turns hypersensitive, and any little scratch or minor friction can set you off into an itching frenzy. You can see what triggers your skin via touch, by noticing what materials cause your skin to become red, extra dry or perhaps a little swollen.

    Food can trigger a sudden flare up as well. Products like eggs, fish, dairy and spicy food have been known to cause dramatic changes in your system that have effects on your skin. Clothes that you wear may also have an irritable reaction on your skin because certain pH levels in clothes cleaning products react to the oils negatively.
     
    sweat
     

    Bodily caused irritations

    Your own body can have an adverse effect on the health of your skin in ways you may not have thought about. Overheating when walking, sitting in a public place and sweating can cause a stinging sensation on the surface of your skin. If the skin is dry and hasn’t been moisturized, the sweat will try to be reabsorbed into the skin. However, sweat has salt in it, and the salt has a slight but constant, acidic reaction to the skin because the molecules cut and scrape across the skin; especially when wearing layers.

    Hair also poses a threat also because it saps any and the little moisture you have on the surface of your skin. Coupling this effect is, how it rubs on your skin like small barbs, frictioning the skin cells making your skin feel abrasive. The hair on your face may have an increased intensity because the face is one of the most sensitive parts of the body. Having scratch marks, or signs of itching such as red or dry skin can be embarrassing when being in public. There are some proven facial hair removal techniques and products that can pluck the hairs out of the follicles and leave no trace of their existence behind. Trimming or shaving leaves behind razor burns and causes hyperpigmentation. Unwanted facial hair can be removed with a cream or at-home DIY practices. There’s lots of advice online on how you can remove the hair cleanly and without damaging your upper lips area.

    Washing and bathing

    Coming to terms with your skin condition is one thing, but changing your life sufficiently to not cause further vexation is another. Do not wash with store-bought soap ever again. Your skin is not normal, and soap does clean your skin, but it completely washes away all the oils that lubricate your skin as well. As a substitute for soap or shower gel, use an emollient that comes in ointment form. The emollient soothes your skin, and because it’s an ointment, it’s thick and sits on your skin for longer. This gives the wax-like substance, more time to absorb and spread itself across your skin in a thick, layer. In the meantime, it will replace the natural oils of your skin, but by the time you come to shower tomorrow or the day after, your skin will have began to make decent levels of oil itself.

    Do not use hot water when you washing yourself because again, the oils are washed away, and your skin begins to dry up and crack. You should use lukewarm water, and don’t pour too much water on yourself. Wash carefully, but don’t stay in the humid environment for too long for the reasons stated. When you’re scrubbing, only go over a layer of skin, three times at the most and use mild pressure at most.

    scrub

    Keep your surrounding clean

    Dust is a major factor of causing skin irritation, regardless of whether you suffer from eczema or not. Allowing dead skin cells to pile up around your home and especially the bedroom where you sleep and breathe most of your air in, is shortsighted. Wipe surfaces with a slightly damp tissue or cloth every week. Vacuum your house, fortnightly and your bedroom every week also. You should vacuum your mattress weekly also to get rid of dust mites that hang around in the padding. You should change your pillow cover to a synthetic material and wash it separately from your main clothes. If you have a computer or laptop, dust gets caught inside the cooling fans, which in turn gets slowly wafted into the air, so make sure to clean this part of your home also.

    Eczema is a skin condition that rarely gets talked about in the news and among friends. But, it’s the hidden, persistent disease that eats away at your skin, slowly but surely. Left uncontrolled, you can scratch so much that you start to bleed. And, because your skin is dry, the wounds won’t heal as fast as they would for normal skin so that it will get worse and worse. Managing eczema is about day-to-day vigilance and taking the right precautions to avoid inflammation.

    Beauty Is in the Beast

    We often talk about how beauty is something that is delicate, dainty and aesthetically pleasing. However, the path you take to reach beauty is filled with trial and error, challenges and all manner of beastly things. Scrubbing your face and exfoliating is something we do on a regular basis just to keep the skin clear, but when you really break it down to what you’re actually doing, you’re furiously scrubbing away dead skin in order to make way for new cells.

    There’s a certain beastly quality in all people who care about their appearance, whether they’re young, middle-aged, a senior or male or female. We have to pay attention to the beauty inside of us that is just waiting to burst out of your current shell, and in order to break that shell, we need to put in some elbow grease, money and a lot of time.

    Banish Acne From All Over Your Body

    banish acne stress

    Whether you have acne on your face or your body, breakouts can cause you more than just discomfort. They can be damaging to your skin and your confidence. In severe cases, they can even be enough to stop you from living the life you want.

    But, what if you have acne on both your face and body? Now, before you get frustrated and feel hopeless, here are 5 easy things you can do to gain control over the situation. 

    1. Use the right cleanser

    This is one of the easiest and most basic solutions to acne. Since dirt, oil and bacteria can get trapped in your pores, it’s only essential that you cleanse your face, preferably in the morning and before getting to bed. However, to treat acne, you need to use the right products in cleansing. Because the skin on your face is different from the skin on your body, you may have to use more than one cleansing product to treat your acne. For your face, you need something that’s gentle but potent enough to kill acne-causing bacteria and unclog your pores. Benzoyl peroxide is a good choice.

    A glycolic acid is also a great option. Apart from helping you heal acne, it can also lighten the skin and reduce dark spots. For your body, try a salicylic acid body wash. This ingredient can dissolve dead skin cells that can clog your pores and cause pimples.

    As to how frequent you should wash your body, do it after working out. Leaving sweat on your body for too long can encourage bacterial growth.

    2. Exfoliate regularly

    Acne-prone skin will benefit greatly from exfoliation. With too much oil and dead skin cells sitting on top of your skin, it’s relatively easy for your pores to get clogged and irritated. By exfoliating, you are technically buffing away those dead skin cells. Apart from getting clog-free pores, exfoliation also helps improve blood circulation so you can get glowing skin. Your skin’s texture will feel smoother and your complexion will obviously be brighter, too. For your face, choose something gentle. You can use a face scrub, a facial cleansing brush or an enzyme peel.

    As for your body, you can use an exfoliating brush, an exfoliating bar soap or a body scrub. Use any of them with gentle rotating motions on your shoulder, chest and back where breakouts are more common. Try to exfoliate once or twice a week. Do not go more than two times a week as over exfoliation can lead to more problems.

    Scrubbing too hard can cause irritation and minute damages in your skin. It can also trigger your skin to produce more oil and the oilier your skin gets, the more breakouts you are likely to have.

    sunblock-skincare-healthy-skin-heart-moisturize   

    3. Make it a habit to moisturize

    A lot of people with acne forego moisturizers because they think these products can cause more problems. If you are one of those people, you are committing a serious crime against your skin. You see, when your skin isn’t moisturized, it’s triggered to produce more oil to compensate. The problem is that your skin isn’t dry; it just thinks it is. For your skin type, choose an acne moisturizer that’s lightweight. Anything too heavy and occlusive can cause more breakouts.

    Pick one that contains the right acne-fighting ingredients. Your best options include salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil and witch hazel. Try to find body lotions and creams with the same ingredients as well. Since the skin on your body is a bit thicker than your face, you should find products that can really penetrate your skin’s deeper layers.

    Apply your moisturizer right after cleansing while the skin is still damp. This way, you’ll be able to seal in the moisture into your skin. Once in a while, you should also treat your skin with a mask, especially your face. Try a peel-off face mask for acne once or twice a week to free your pores from impurities.

    4.  Wear sun protection

    Tanning is a good solution to acne. That’s if you’re looking for a temporary fix. When your skin tans from excessive sun exposure, your zits as well as your skin turn dry. Your tan makes your blemishes a lot less noticeable, too. Unfortunately, when the tan fades and your skin begins to recover, its tendency is to produce more oil to make up for its lost moisture. As a result, your skin gets oilier and that can cause more breakouts.

    Apart from that, too much sun exposure can also speed up skin aging. It burns the skin, reduces its elasticity and leaves spots. It predisposes you to skin cancer, too. To make sure none of these things happen, always wear your sunscreen before heading out. As much as possible, use products with SPF 30 or higher and make sure they offer broad-spectrum protection.

    Wear protective clothing when you know you’ll be exposed to the sun; like a hat or a good pair of sunglasses. Avoid going outdoors between 10 am and 3 pm as this is the time when the sun’s rays are the strongest.

    5. Reduce stress

    When you are under stress, so is your skin. Too much stress can boost your body’s production of the stress hormone cortisol. This hormone has a direct effect on how your oil glands behave. The more cortisol there is, the more sebum your oil glands produce. And you know what happens when there’s too much oil.

    Stress can also affect your diet. It can make you crave for sweets, chips and processed foods. These things can aggravate your acne and make you gain weight, too.

    You won’t get too much sleep when you’re under stress as well. Less sleep means less time for your body to repair itself.

    So, before stress takes over your body and skin, take time off your busy schedule to relax and unwind. You can try meditation, working out or find a new hobby.

    Acne, Milia and Other Irritating Skin Issues Fixed

    Don’t you just hate it when you wake up in the morning and find that a blemish has developed on your skin, apparently overnight? Usually, this happens the morning before a big day and the most common reason for stress. You were probably stressed when you went to bed and that causes your body to increase its production of sebum. This is the name for the oily liquid that oozes out of spots and acne. So, perhaps the best way to get rid of the problem would be to just control your stress levels as much as possible. But what if that skin blemish is already there?

    You can cover it up, but this will typically make the issue worse. Putting makeup on acne is adding more oils to your skin and it could cause more spots to develop. No, the best way to handle this is head on so let’s look at how to solve some of the most annoying skin issues, starting with acne.

    How to deal with #acne, #milia and other irritating skin issues #skincare #beauty Click To Tweet

    Eliminating Acne

    Aside from the stress, the main cause of your acne is probably your diet. If you’re eating lots of sugary sweets and snacks, you need to stop that right now. You might also want to cut out most of the dairy from your diet. Research shows that this is two of the main causes of acne. Of course, it’s not the only problem that causes the skin issue, but it’s a good start. if you correct your diet, you will start to see a noticeable difference to your skin.

    You might also want to think about exercising more often. By exercising, your body will produce sweat. This gets rid of any bacteria and oils underneath the skin and reduces the likelihood of an acne breakout.


    Milia

    Some people have a different skin issue from acne and that’s milia. Milia is typically found around the edge of the eyes and are hard, little white or sometimes yellow spots. They cannot be squeezed like a pimple. There are only two options to remove them. Milia can be melted through a steam treatment. You can head to a spa or fill a bowl with boiling water and hold your head over it. You might notice they start to drip, allowing you to remove the spots. Or, you can get them surgically removed. It is a basic treatment but it can be quite terrifying having a needle so close to your eyes. As such, melting them might be the best option. The cause of these skin blemishes is dead skin building up around the eyes. These can be diminished with exfoliation. If you look at ranking and reviews of the 10 best exfoliators, you’ll be able to find the right one to use and make sure you can clear up this skin issue in no time. Many people mistakenly believe that there is no way to avoid milia and they’re wrong.

    Petechiae

    Finally, petechiae are pinprick red dots that are not as pronounced as acne but far more colourful. As such, they can be just as annoying and even more difficult to conceal. The best advice here is to use cold treatments. Wrap an ice pack in a cloth and press it to your face for ten or twenty minutes. This will diminish the issue completely and you should see the red dots fade. if it doesn’t make sure you go to the doctors as it could point to a more serious issue.

    Age Before Beauty? Simple Ways To Look Good In Your Golden Years

    There’s a rather unpleasant rumor that the media often seems incredibly dedicated to pushing out into the world. That is the idea that you can only look good when you’re young. Because of this a lot of people treat age and beauty as things that are totally inseparable. However, this is simply not the case! Think about women like Helen Mirren and Monica Belucci. They are still considered some of the gorgeous women in the world well into their later years. Of course, you might think that these women have some secret that you’re not aware of, but in reality looking good in your golden years is much easier than you might think. Here are a few things you can do to keep yourself looking good no matter what the calendar says!

    Change your Makeup

    One thing that you cannot deny is that your face changes shape as you get older. As they age, many women are suddenly faced with the fact that their cheekbones become much more prominent. This means that using the same kind of contouring that you did before can make you look sallow and gaunt. Not only that but things like wrinkles and crow’s feet can be counteracted by changing your makeup style. You wouldn’t use colours that didn’t match your skin tone, so why stick to the same makeup routine when your face has changed?

    Change your Wardrobe

    No matter how good you look, it’s near impossible for a woman in her fifties to pull off the fashion of a woman in her twenties. Of course, a lot of people assume this means that they need to give up on fashion altogether. Of course, this is ridiculous! In reality, all you need to do is to change up your style to match your new level of maturity. Again, look at someone like Helen Mirren. She’s been able to embrace her age, and her style is filled with class and elegance.

    Turn back the clock

    Of course, there are always ways in which you can reverse some of the things that time has done. Something like a vertical facelift can make a huge difference but is often a pretty drastic solution. There are less invasive things that you can do. Things like chemical peels and fillers are often surprisingly fast and painless procedures that can leave your skin looking smoother as well as helping you feel younger and more confident.

    Take care of your hair

    If there’s one dead giveaway of someone’s age, it’s their hair. When your hair starts going grey, it’s not just a matter of the colour. It’s lost many of its important oils which mean that it’s going to finer and dryer than it was before. Because of this, you need to make sure that you’re taking the best care of it possible to prevent it from becoming dry and straw-like. Using conditioner is incredibly important, but you also shouldn’t wash your hair every day. While you don’t want your hair becoming greasy, you don’t want it drying out either.
