Spring is a time of new beginnings, new growth, new flowers, and, unfortunately, new pimples. We’re here to help with that last one.
Pimples, zits, breakouts, acne – no matter what you and your friends call them, they suck. But with the right routine and smart product choices, you can fight acne and enjoy everything that Spring has to offer!
The Importance of Routine.
A complete skincare routine will help you stay on top of, and ahead of, acne breakouts. We recommend starting with a twice-a-day full wash routine that helps to keep your pores clear of dirt and oil build up. Keep these three tips in mind when going through your morning and evening washes.
1) Wash with warm water.
2) Use your fingers rather than an abrasive cloth (especially if you are experiencing a breakout)
3) Take your time.
AcneTip: If you wear glasses or sunglasses, be sure to keep them clean. Dirt and oil can accumulate on your frames and transfer to your face, blocking pores and leading to acne breakouts.
Less Stress. More Activity.
Stress can contribute to all sorts of health related issues, including the health of your skin. So keeping your stress low can really help to fight off acne breakouts.
With the temperature rising and more daylight to enjoy, it is easier now to get outside in the fresh air and relieve your stress. Whether you enjoy a hike in woods, a walk in the park, or just sitting under a tree as the clouds float by, getting outside and active in the fresh spring air is an excellent stress reducer you can do almost every day of the week.
