5 Tips to Wake up with Clear Skin Every Morning.

I will literally just get straight to the point. No fads, No bullshit. I am sure you must have read so many articles and tried so many DIYs to fix those skin issues but they persist. But many people tend to forget to go to the root of what to do to get clear skin. They forget that to achieve clear skin, you can't just do overnight treatments or fortnight treatments. It is a lifelong process. To achieve clear skin for the rest of your life, you have to work for it.

Here are my favourite tips and tricks that have worked out for me massively. Please note that you cant do much with hormonal acne. It will appear when your hormones are in a twist. You can work towards reducing it. But you can't actually end it.

1. Sanitisation. 


This is THE most important aspect that many people forget. By lathering on face masks or drinking gallons of water, you are not doing any favour to your skin if you are not sanitising your makeup tools. You need to wash your makeup brushes after EVERY use. I know you might think that you will ruin your tools by washing them after every use but its generally very very important. If you use the same tools twice without washing, you are bound to get bacteria on your face, causing more breakouts. Another thing that many many people forget is sanitising the PRODUCT. Washing your brushes is absolutely useless if you are not sanitising your products. If you use the same brush in the same pan, what you are actually doing is giving the bacteria another home to live in aka your product. Make sure that you have alcohol wipes handy so that you can sanitise them every few days to have healthy looking skin.

2. Hydration.

I am sure you are now tired of listening to the jabber of how water is really really good for your skin. But it truly is the key to hydration. Water detoxes your body to get rid of all the toxins and to create a harmonious environment for the cells to regrow and give you radiant looking skin. But water isn't the only way you can hydrate your skin. Having your greens has also proven to increase the radiance of your skin.

3. Regular treatments. 


There are days when your skin needs that extra TLC. Just because you are taking care of the insides of your body, doesn't mean that you won't need to take care of the surface of your skin. It's important to scrub your skin at least once a week and moisturise it well enough. Even if you have oily skin, make sure that you are using a water-based cream to hydrate your skin. Use masks that effectively help you achieve that glow. If you have acne spots you can also use spot treatments. Differin gel is a good acne treatment. Others like Mario Badescu drying gel is also really good (although it didn't really work out for me) but celebrities claim to love it. A few masks that I am absolutely loving at the moment are The Body Shop's expert facial masks and the Glam Glow Gravity Mud treatment!

4. REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP.


This is another important part of getting clear skin. If you don't remove your makeup at the end of the day, you ARE going to wake up with breakouts all over! Your skin NEEDS to breathe overnight. And if you are going to block the pores through the night, your skin will damage really easily. Make sure that you are using the right products to remove your makeup. Wipes are going to damage your skin. A good cleanser and a muslin cloth will do the best job for your skin. If you use harsh chemicals and abrasive products, you aren't doing any favour to your skin. Find the cleanser that works for your skin type and stick to it.

5. Fix a beauty regime.


Good skincare will lead you to good skin even when you age. Always always follow a fixed skincare routine every day. You can always switch the products up but always make sure that you cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin daily. Use overnight serums to make sure that they work for your skin while your skin breathes properly without drying itself out. I am absolutely loving the Caudalie Overnight detox oil at the moment and it has been doing wonders to my skin. It's smoother and clearer since I last cried about my skin. 

Always remember, taking care of your skin is a lifelong process. Just because you did a treatment or took care of your skin for a few weeks doesn't mean that you can completely give up on it.

  1. These are some great tips! Have you personally tried Differen gel? I hardly do makeup, just 2-3 times in a month if that counts, but after how many uses of the brushes do you recommend cleaning them?
