Healthy Skin Tips: Prevent And Defeat Acne

 

Young Woman Looking Thoughtful

One of the curses of teenagers is of course acne. Despite the claims of anti-acne products there is not really one way to defeat the problem. However there are some healthy skin tips which can help reduce acne and in some cases solve the problem entirely.

 

Acne is always a risk when the body is developing and growing and is often made worse in girls as they start using cosmetics for the first time. Not surprisingly they begin by using cheap chemical makeup but unfortunately this tends not to work with the skin. All too often such makeup will simply cover the skin and block the pores. The subsequent build up of oils will encourage more spots.

 

The first of the healthy skin tips for teenagers therefore – and everyone else for that matter – is to use all natural makeup. Otherwise known as mineral cosmetics these products contain natural ingredients that work with the skin and provide nutrients.

 

Ironically many woman discover all natural makeup later in life once they know a bit more about makeup and skin care but it is effective from the outset and can give the foundations of healthier skin in later years.

 

Teenagers have a habit too of wearing their makeup for long periods of time: perhaps even sleeping in it. This is another reason for wearing all natural makeup as you can go to sleep in it with no ill effects as it allows the skin to breathe.

 

Other healthy skin tips help too.

 

Be wary of acne treatment products. Some are acidic and can actually harm the skin. Again, natural ingredients are best but it is not always necessary to use anything at all.

 

As always, the nutrition and your diet are essential to looking and feeling good. The old phrase ‘you are what you eat’ is very true here.

 

A healthy diet will help reduce all skin problems including acne. Too many fatty foods will only help produce a greasy skin.

 

Food and lifestyle is essential to a good skin no matter what the age. Remember your food provides the vitamins and minerals your body – and skin – needs. I suspect this is a waste of time to say this but another of the healthy skin tips is to get lots of sleep and drink lots of water. Sadly this is something most teenagers will ignore!

 

Another good skincare tip for acne sufferers is to be clean. Ensure you wash your face regularly with moderately hot water. Cold water will simply transfer the infection to other areas and very hot water will damage the skin anyway. Try not to touch affected areas and, if you do, wash your hands before touching anywhere else.

 

Acne is a difficult and embarrassing problem for many teenagers but with a few healthy skin tips things can be much improved.
