How to Get Clean Skin Fast?

By  | 

 1. Stop using harsh cleansers!

Your face shouldn’t feel tight, “squeaky”, or dry clean after washing. These are all signs that your cleanser is too harsh for your skin. Try instead more gentle treatment.

 2. Patch test.

Patch testing is generally done to see whether a particular product is causing allergic reactions, irritation or to check for acne or clogs.

  • To see if you are allergic – apply the product behind the ear.
  • To check for acne or clogs – apply the product on the area in which you experience the most clogs and acne.
  • To check for irritation – apply the product on the area where you’re most sensitive.

Patch test product at least few days before going full face.

 3. Don’t buy everything at once.

It’s important to slowly introduce products into your regimen. If you start using few new products and one of them doesn’t match your skin type, you’ll have no clue which one is it. Be patient and take your time.

Dont Buy Everything At Once

 4. Research the ingredients.

Everyone’s skin is different. That means you shouldn’t  buy the same products as your friend because it works for her. You’ll need months to find out what skin products works for you.

 5. Moisturize.

If you’re doing any kind of acne regimen, make sure you have an intensive moisturizer. Your skin never shouldn’t feel tight. Acne regimens are drying so it’s important to moisturize your skin.

Before you start using moisturizer – do your research and make sure it isn’t going to cause skin breakout. Also, even if your skin is oily, you need to moisturize it. Oil production is commonly increased due to skin dehydration.

 6. Use Sunscreen.

Some skin products and treatments increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. To minimize skin damage from the sun, use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and high UVA protection and avoid excessive sun exposure.

 7. No baking soda, vinegar or citrus fruits on skin.

Don’t use baking soda, vinegar and citrus fruits as skin care products. Lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, baking soda and vinegar are not safer just because they are natural products and you consume them.

Baking soda and vinegar are chemicals. They are often used to scrub stain from toilets and sinks. Scrubbing your skin with these ingredients  damages your skin care barrier, decreasing the ability to keep bacteria on your skin in check and increasing moisture loss.

 8. Oil cleansing method.

Some popular oil cleansing choices are: mineral oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, meadow foam oil, hemp seed oil, coconut oil, and olive oil.

If you find regular cleansers too harsh, mineral oil might be a good option. Mineral oil works best for dehydrated, dry and skin that is oily from dehydration.Sunflower is good for dry skin while hemp seed oil is great for acne. Jojoba oil is a great option for dehydrated skin.

Attention:  Patch test oils before you start using them. This method can cause bad breakouts for some acne prone people.

e) You can use one or two drops of olive oil (or any other oil) to moisturize the skin after cleansing.
