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 cleanser with salicylic acid like our Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser to gently exfoliate your skin and clear those pores out before a breakout has the chance to sneak in.

If you are on the road a lot or need a quick cleansing solution after the gym, carry salicylic-based cleansing wipes  for the same pore-clearing benefits as the cleanser. Our Salicylic Clarifying Pads are perfect for use on-the-go.

Go Oil-Free

Acne-fighting products can often make your skin dry and sensitive.  It’s important to use plenty of moisturizer to compensate for this. Our Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturizer will help to reduce oil on the surface of the skin while providing essential hydration. 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. Try our Clear Cell Medicated Acne Lotion to stop acne at its source.

Nourish Your Face

Did you know that diet accounts for 80 percent 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 Image I CONCEAL Flawless Foundations.

Stress Less

With the hustle and bustle of the Holidays, it can be hard to find some peace and quiet.  It can be a stressful time with end of the year deadlines at work and party after party. 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.
