aveeno skin brightening moisturizer
Your skin is the first thing someone notices about you so it should be the one thing you give the most attention. Some people are prone to constant and embarrassing skin breakouts while others suffer from the occasional pimple or blackhead. Regardless, acne is a problem we all face at one time or another. You can ease the presence of acne by giving daily consistent cleansing and care to your skin. Because acne is caused by blockages in the follicles of facial skin and the overproduction of sebum which clogs the sebaceous glands, this is largely a genetic or hormonal problem that often fades away as you reach your twenties. You can follow these steps to prevent blemishes and reduce the chance of breakouts on your face.
The first step to beautiful skin is to wash your face every morning as soon as you wake up. This is important because throughout the night while you are sleeping, your skin release oils. Not only will washing your face make you feel refreshed and wake you up a little bit, but it will wash away oils, leaving your face fresh and clean. Do not use normal soap or hand soap to wash your face because this will dry your skin out. Use a face wash like Olay Acne Control Face Wash. This face wash will eliminate acne blemishes and prevent future breakouts.
Olay products are soap-free and hypoallergenic and will not clog your pores. They have a light smell and easily remove oil and impurities. Next, use a facial scrub like Olay Blackhead Clearing Scrub which will make your skin appear softer as its salicylic acid treatment eliminates and prevents blackheads. Pat your face dry with a towel. Next apply some moisturizer with an SPF of around 15 to 30, depending upon how much sun exposure you plan to receive that day. Try Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Combination or Oily Skin with SPF 15. This has a light scent and will instantly add moisture to your face. Now you are ready to put on your make-up.
Even more important than washing your face in the morning is taking good care of your skin at night. After removing your makeup, wash your face with a face wash as you did in the morning. Use Olay 2-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths for Combination Oily Skin. Wet the cloth and rub it around in your hands in order to build up lather. Use the smooth side of the cloth first to wipe your entire face, paying close attention to your problem areas and the areas in which you applied makeup. Then flip the cloth over and use the textured side to exfoliate your face. Dry and dead skin cells will be smoothed away, leaving healthy skin underneath. Rinse your face and pat dry.
Next apply e.l.f. Zit Zapper to your problem areas like your T-zone or directly onto pimples. The combination of salicylic acid, witch hazel, and tea tree oil will reduce swelling of pimples and dry them out, making them disappear in about two days. Apply a night cream afterwards like Aveeno Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion. Natural ingredients like Southernwood extracts help lock in moisture and your skin will appear radiant and glowing in the morning.
