We all know that having those random pimples on our faces is annoying. The No.1 rule is NOT to pop or squeeze them, this could push the infected area further into your skin which would make the pimple worse, swell up and even scar.
Try to avoid touching your face with dirty objects or anything that can collect dust, oil or residue which our sensitive face will not be happy with.
Washing our face is important, but do not wash it more than twice a day as this could irritate your skin and dehydrate your face. Our skin has natural oils which are still needed to keep us glowing.
Always use circular motions when applying a face scrub. Scrubbing too hard can lead to skin irritation.
If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you always give them a quick wipe with an anti-bacterial wipe. These are handy to keep in your handbag and they are essential in helping to avoid break-outs.
Hair-bands and hats carry a lot of oil which is then deposited on your face, try to avoid to wearing them for long hours.
This is probably something not all of us do, but after a night out make sure you always remove your make up thoroughly before you tuck yourself in to bed.
Styling your hair away from the face always helps in avoiding the oil that’s naturally in our hair from setting into your pores.
Before heading out or going to the beach always protect your face with a suncream that has a high SPF of at least 50. If you suffer from acne, that extra tan you are getting on your face will make it worse. Always protect your beauty.
Eating healthily will also help the appearance of your skin. It is said that eating foods high in omega 3 fatty acids, like soya beans, walnuts and salmon help reduce inflammation.
Did you know that our face spends a third of its life resting on a pillow? It is important that you wash your pillow cases and sheets at least once or twice a week. We all love that fresh smell when resting our head down to sleep, don’t we?

Visiting a dermatologist for some extra advice will also be beneficial for clear and healthy looking skin. It will surely be an investment!
