A GUIDE TO CLEAR SKIN

A GUIDE TO CLEAR SKIN

By Kate Jeong

  Imagine you wake up one morning, stare at your reflection to check up on yourself- then to your horror, you find pimples across your face. You wonder if it’s possible to maintain clear skin, and stay away from oiliness. Fear not, for the secrets are unveiled today!

  Secret Tip 1: Always wash your face (preferably before bed). You’re asking for a breakout if you never wash the grime from your pores. Stash cleansing wipes on your nightstand for nights when you’re too tired to move- they’re also at a very convenient price at any drugstores.

  Secret Tip 2: Change your pillowcase. Not changing your pillowcases can cause your skin to break out, due to the dirt and sweat from your hair, and hands, which can clog your pores, so it’s a good idea to change them every once in a while.

  Secret Tip 3: Don’t pop it. Popping can cause infections, making the situation so much worse. Instead, dab sulfur treatment on the acne morning and night. It is known to bring down swelling.

  Secret Tip 4: Wear sunscreen- even if it’s winter. There are sunscreens for every skin type imaginable- even ones that help make your skin less oily, so your face stays pimple-free. An insider trick is to look for a moisturizer with SPF that says it’s “lightweight,” “oil-free,” or “oil-controlling.”

  Secret Tip 5: Clean your phone. Your phone picks up lots of dirt and bacteria, which can then get transferred to your face. Wipe your often screen with an antibacterial wipe to get rid of germs.

   Using these tips can help you start off with clear, radiant skin and help you stay confident. For sure, following these five simple steps can make your skin glowing, and you can wave your skin problems goodbye.
