There Is No Substitute for Acne Know-How

January 26th, 2011

You might be enthusiastic about your new skincare routine or product, but unless you are fully armed with skincare know-how, your enthusiasm could be short lived. There is no substitute for knowing what will cause blemishes or acne, this way you can avoid the pitfalls and have blemish free skin.

Here are somethings to know and to give you more charge over your skin.

Some powder-based makeup can contain talc. Talc can clog your pores very quickly. Talc is used in a lot of powder makeup as an ingredient and can cause blemishes.

Instead opt to buy a talc free mineral face powder. As many of you know, I personally use the Eminence Organic Mineral Powder.

Dairy is one of the biggest culprits of breakouts and most people don’t even know it. Research shows that the biggest milk drinkers are more subject to experiencing breakouts.

Milk, even if organic, contains hormones that stimulate oil production in humans.

Eliminating or limiting dairy from your diet should really help control unwanted breakouts.

Lack of good fats in your diet can also cause a skin condition. Most people think that because they have oily or breaking out skin they should avoid all oils. Some will even go so far as using harsh products that over dry their skin, exacerbating the condition.

Essential oils, like Omega 3, 6 and 9 can help balance oil production, reduce inflammation while boosting your immune system and cellular activity. All good for the skin, hair and body.

Knowing what to do for your skin and using what you know will keep your skin clear and wrinkle free. And as you mature you will always maintain a youthful glow.
