Your face is one of the few things that you can say is uniquely your own. There might be other people who have features similar to yours, but your face has characteristics that make you uniquely you. For this reason, it is understandable that you want to do whatever you can to keep your face looking young, fresh and healthy.
While there are many skin care options that are designed to repair the damage done to your skin by the sun, the weather and other irritants, when it comes to skin care, a pound of prevention is worth an ounce of cure. There are a few steps that you can take to prevent blackheads and acne breakouts while at the same time maintaining healthy skin.
Choose the Right Make-Up
Many are surprised at how big of an impact their make-up choice has on the health of their skin. They are even more surprised when they realize that some of the expensive make-up products they are purchasing to cover up their acne are actually what is making their acne worse. If you choose the wrong make-up, you’re going to be clogging up your pores and encouraging blackhead outbreaks.
When choosing acne-friendly cosmetic products, look for make-up that says non-comedogenic on the label. This big term simply means that the make-up has been uniquely designed to not clog your pores. Using make-up that is light and oil-free will bring you one step closer to an acne-free and healthy face. Dermatology Consultants of South Florida proudly offers Jane Iredale products, which are known to be good for the skin.
Get Enough to Drink
Hydrated skin is healthy skin. The human skin is divided into three layers. There are the epidermis, the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. If the epidermis does not have enough moisture, it will not be elastic. Your skin will become rough and dry, and it will crack and will be prone to acne outbreaks.
In addition to drinking enough water, you can keep your skin hydrated by avoiding prolonged exposure to dry air; avoiding skin care products that have alcohol; using a humidifier; and moisturizing your face immediately after a shower or a bath. You can also hydrate your skin by taking advantage of the numerous cosmetic treatments we offer.
Exfoliation allows you to eliminate dead skin cells. Less dead skin cells means less dead skin to clog up your pores, leading to your blackheads and pimples.
