Stop researching and continue reading as we have chosen 5 tips to help you adjust your acne regimen for clear glowing skin during the holidays.

Ingredients for a pimple!

We all know what acne is and the cases of it to our skin, and if this doesn’t ring a bell, check out our informative post on what is acne 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, and your skin returns to its clear state!

Instead of spending your money on countless quick fixes, think about the long-term goal, which is getting to the root cause of your acne and preventing it from happening. It will save you a lot of time and money in the end. Not to mention, since we know that the origin of acne is internal, it makes sense to treat it internally, right? Add AcnEase to your Santa’s wish list!

Try the Clear Skin Diet.

  1. Special cleansing routine. 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.
  2. 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 dishes 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 holiday treats 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 instead. 
  3. Extra pampering routine. Start 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 more efficiently.
  4. Keep going! Continue using your cleanser and moisturiser during the winter since your skin needs the extra TLC. Ensure you practise good make up tips using the correct noncomedogenic makeup for reducing acne breakouts. Once the holidays are over, try a post holiday 3-day detox to get you get back on track.
