How to Avoid Breakouts and Keep Your Skin Clear

It doesn't matter if it's prom night or a regular day at home; acne flare-ups and breakouts can ruin your day. Most people can find it somewhat frustrating and, at times, even painful to deal with them. Breakouts can make you feel less comfortable and very conscious as you go about your regular activities. It's no wonder everyone wants to have blemish-free skin!

A clear complexion can boost your self-confidence and help you feel better about yourself. Unfortunately, it isn't easy to achieve blemish-free skin, especially with so many factors contributing to these unprecedented breakouts. The good news is that there are a few products and habits that can help you achieve a clear complexion.

Here are some of the best tips to do so!


Always Remove Makeup

When trying to achieve clear skin, it is essential to always remove makeup before sleeping. Having makeup on for extended periods traps sweat and oil beneath the surface, leading to clogged pores and an increased likelihood of breakouts. So, always remove makeup before you head to bed.


Cleanse Face AM and PM

Besides removing makeup, it is essential to cleanse your face twice a day, in the morning and evening. Our skin collects dirt and other impurities at every turn we take – cleansing helps remove them, reducing the chances of clogged pores and minimising the risk of breakouts.


Apply a Purifying Face Mask 1-2 Times per Week

Purifying face masks help pull dirt and other impurities from deep inside your skin. That unclogs pores, which is essential in preventing flare-ups and breakouts in general. So, when creating your skincare routine, ensure you include a weekly treatment, such as the Blue Lagoon purifying face masks for example.


Avoid Touching Your Face

Our hands come in contact with a lot of germs and impurities– and touching our face can facilitate the spread of bacteria and dirt from the hands to the face. Face touching can also clog your pores, which is one of the top causes of breakouts. So, avoid touching your face unless it's necessary or do so with clean hands.


Exfoliate Weekly With BHA

Exfoliating weekly with beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) offers some benefits that can help reduce the risk of breakouts. BHA helps unclog pores by penetrating deep into the pores and breaking down oil, dirt and debris. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits that help soothe irritated skin. Lastly, as an exfoliant, it removes dead skin cells, which is essential in preventing pore blockage.


Besides these few guidelines, there are additional lifestyle tips that play a significant role in having clear, healthy skin. These include staying hydrated, eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, using sunscreen and avoiding smoking & excessive alcohol consumption.
