and how to
improve acne symptoms.
Nevertheless, it is important to understand the lifespan of a pimple in order
to better tackle it, at the different stages from within. The birth of a pimple
starts when the pores are clogged up with dead cells mixed with oil creating a
clump in forming a plug. Due to the lack of oxygen, the pimple then continues
to grow with the infiltration of bacteria. Your body then responds by sending
white blood cells to fight these bacterial invaders. This leads to the next stage in the acne
life cycle, inflammation. As the body fights the bacteria, your skin becomes
inflamed which leads to those red bumps, pimples, or cysts. On the other hand,
when the white blood cells die and accumulate in the pore, along with other
debris and fluid, this forms a pus-filled whitehead. With time, the infection
heals on its own, leaving a scab behind. The dead cells of the scab dissolve
leaving a scar. Eventually, healthy cells replace the dead cells of the scar,

- Special cleansing
In order to help remove excess oil, keep pores clean, and speed up the healing
of breakouts, an ideal can skin routine is essential. We recommend starting
once a week with the best natural astringent, chamomile. Chamomile can help
control bacteria, prevent razor bumps and even speed up the healing of pimples.
It also revitalizes the skin to make it look healthy and youthful.
- Healthy eating routine. It can be tough to
eat right for your acne-prone skin during the holidays, especially if you're
surrounded by family and loved ones. The best solution for you and your skin is
to prepare a few acne-friendly
and recipes that everyone can
enjoy. It is also advised to limit
your sugar intake,
as this is a reason to trigger those pesky blemishes. Enjoy eating sweet
that are acne-friendly for your skin. Drinking alcohol is accepted once you
are of legal age, however, it can negatively damage your skin with dehydration,
hormonal imbalance, increase inflammation and sebum production. In addition,
foods that heat the blood should be eliminated, especially alcohol, coffee,
lobster, prawns, and hot spicy foods. Opt for berries and broiled fish with
fresh herbs and garlic, green leaves and nut & seed salads and a glass of
red wine or sparkling water with lemon, lime and a stem of fresh mint
- Extra pampering
once a week with using a revitalising winter mask for getting that extra
glow for the holidays. Masks are used to help exfoliate the skin and remove the
surface layer of dead cells, or to tighten pores and give skin a brighter
appearance. Face masks also can be quite therapeutic depending on the
ingredients used. Masking also helps all of your other skin care products work

cleanser and moisturiser during the winter since your skin needs the extra TLC.
