Both over-washing and under-washing can spell trouble for your skin. So what’s the magic number? Usually, just cleansing twice a day.
You eat right to maintain a healthy weight, but eating the right food can also help your skin. Consuming certain foods and drinks might actually affect acne. Scientists are investigating whether eating certain carbohydrates, such as white bread, white potatoes, chips, cornflakes and pretzels, and drinking skim milk might make acne worse.
Exercise is good not just for your body but for your skin, too, since it can improve circulation. Just don’t forget to shower and wash your face after a good workout, so bacteria and dead skin cells don’t clog your pores.
Moisturizers help prevent your skin from drying out, which can cause more oil to be produced. Look for lightweight, oil-free products that won’t clog pores.
The sun’s UV rays dry out your skin, so your body reacts by producing more oil. And you know what more oil means. More importantly, exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause skin cancer. So do yourself a huge favor and never leave the house without sunscreen. Just make sure it’s oil-free!
