Hello, Beauty Vibers!

Many of us suffer from acne or have acne-prone skin. Though I never had bad acne, as a teen I had breakouts and I still get a few every now and then.

There are several steps I take to ensure that my skin is free from pimples, bumps, blackheads and other unwanted visitors. Today I'll be sharing with you my remedy for clear skin.

 

Cleanse

 

There are so many cleansers for different purposes and skin types. So, it is important that you are aware of your skin's needs before choosing a cleanser. If your skin is dry and sensitive, you will want a gentle cream cleanser. If you have oily skin, your cleanser should be formulated to control the oil without drying out your skin.

For acne-prone skin, a cleanser with salicylic acid that fights acne-causing bacteria may work best for you. I have been using BiorÈ products since 2012, and I absolutely love their cleansers. I use my BiorÈ cleansers after removing make-up and they leave my skin feeling clean and fresh.

 

Tone

 

After using a cleanser, there may still be dirt or make-up on your skin, so a good wipe with a toner gets those lingering particles off your face. My favourite toner at the moment is the Irie Rock Tea Tree, and Witch Hazel toner. I absolutely love this product! Whenever I get a little pimple, I put the toner on it over night and by morning it has reduced in size, and there is no redness. This toner is extremely refreshing, and is definitely great for acne-prone skin. I recommend this product to all my friends because it has worked wonders for me.

 

Moisturise

 

I have been using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel for about two months now, and this moisturiser is amazing! It leaves my skin looking and feeling hydrated and healthy. Another great moisturiser is from Irie Rock. Their Tea Tree and Witch Hazel combination moisturiser moisturises while preventing unwanted skin visitors. When these visitors do show up, we try to get rid of them, and the worst thing to do is to squeeze them. When we do, we are left with dark spots, which, personally I absolutely hate! The ARI Fade Cream from the ARI Clear Skin System helps to get rid of these dark spots. Put a small amount of this product on the dark spots at nights. Just a little goes a long way, so don't go overboard!

 

Protect

 

It is extremely important that you protect your skin when it is recovering from acne scars, as sun exposure can cause these dark scars to become darker. The

Neutrogena Oil- Free Moisturiser with SPF 15 is great as the sunscreen protects your skin against the sun's rays.

 

Exfoliate

 

I'm back again with another Irie Rock product, I truly do love them. The Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Scrub is amazing! The scrubbing component gets rid of dirt and dead skin cells, opening up the pores, while the tea tree oil and witch hazel get rid of acne and acne-causing bacteria. I use this scrub three times per week and whenever I feel like I need to scrub the day away. I have also found that I have little to no blackheads or whiteheads, which I believe is a result of my commitment to this scrub.

These are just a few tips and products that will help you to keep your skin looking beautiful. Check out more tips and let's have a chat at FontanaBeautyVibes.com.
