5 Simple Steps to Prevent Breakouts
Keep Your Pores Clear With the Right Cleanser
If you’re prone to breakouts, it’s important to use a cleanser than helps prevent those nasty pimples instead of trying to treat them after the fact. Pick a cleaners with salicylic acid to exfoliate your skin and clear those pores out before a breakout has the chance to sneak in.
Acne-fighting products can often make your skin dry and sensitive. It’s important to use a good daily oil – free moisturizer. We suggest using the IMAGE Skincare Prevention + Daily Matte Moisturizer. This product aslo contains an SPF of 32. Even better! Just be sure to use oil-free lotion to keep your skin clear of future pimples. We also love products with added benefits like antioxidants for a healthy glow and skin brighteners to reduce the redness of existing acne lesions.
Nourish Your Face
Did you know that diet accounts for 80% of your skin’s health? Keep this in mind when planning your meals. Adding fresh fruit and vegetables that are rich in vitamin A will help normalize the production of skin cells. Try adding more mango, kale and broccoli to your diet. Healthy fats from salmon, walnuts and eggs will also help keep your skin nourished, helping prevent future breakouts.
Cover Up Carefully
When choosing a foundation, it’s important to consider the ingredients. Oil-free liquid foundations are a great option for those prone to breakouts. Pick a foundation with skin-healing ingredients like our Bare Minerals range or our IMAGE Skincare IConceal.
With the hustle and bustle of every day life, it can be hard to find some peace and quiet. When we stress out, our cortisol hormone spike and along with it, oil production. Take time for yourself every season by going for a walk, having five minutes of silence in the car or taking a yoga class once a week.
