Having clear skin is every girl’s dream and the numerous products out there in the market makes it even harder to find the right product suitable for your skin type!Today I am going to talk about breakouts/pimples.Yes,we all have had it at some point in our lives,sometimes when we least expect it.So you have an important occasion/wedding/date night and you wake up with a pimple😳(has happened to all of us) so what to do you do?Let me help you with quick fixes for when you have breakouts.First you need to understand that pimples are common and it happens to everyone,our skin is exposed to various things.The stress,hormonal changes,probably some medications,a diet high in diary products contribute to breakouts.
Lets start with the “dont’s”
•Do not BURST the pimple,that’s a big no!What you don’t realise is,for a temporary /easy fix you are just making your skin worse and getting the area infected further,avoid touching it altogether
•Avoid applying makeup(foundation,concealer) to the irritated area
•Do not Rub,but Pat your skin dry after wash
•When you first notice a break out,you want to try and reduce the inflammation and applying ice/cold water would do the needful and also make the skin smoother and firmer and you would want to do this at regular intervals
•Over the counter product that really benefit in getting rid of the pimples would be “Clindac gel” easy to find in any pharmacy,apply this gel and leave it overnight (apply it thrice a day).This gel has no side effects and it retails for Rs125 only
•Another product that I have been using for quite a while that I love is the “Mario badescu drying lotion” so you take your cotton bud and dip it all the way to the bottom of the bottle(the top of the lotion being clear and the bottom has the pink sediment)without shaking the bottle,this is suitable for all skin types and works quite well on my skin(I have dry,sensitive skin)so you apply the pink sediment wherever you see breakouts,you will end up looking like a pink poodle😀 but the upside is this works overnight and will shrink the pimple and you will wake up and notice a visible difference.This lotion retails for Rs1,153.You can find this on Beautybay.com this website ships worldwide.
But more importantly don’t be embarassed of acne,it happens to all of us.Stop feeling frustrated by your skin,your face is amazing and unique.Each scar has a story to tell,do not let your problem skin fool you into thinking you deserve any less.
