4 amazing things to help you get glowing skin this week

by in Uncategorized December 2, 2020

You’re well past those teenage years when acne breakouts, scarring, and uneven skin tone was the norm. However, you can’t quite seem to figure out why you’re STILL having difficulty with your skin. Adult acne is a real thing.

Some well-known culprits include lack of hydration, poor diet, using the wrong types of products, and lacking a skincare routine altogether. But let’s talk about the not-so-commonly discussed culprits. We’ll discuss four, but there are many more!

Cell phone
Did you know that a cell phone has 18 times more bacteria than a public restroom? We touch a million things a day: doorknobs, steering wheels, computer keys, kids, gas pumps, our hair, etc. Then we transfer germs to our phones and ultimately use them to talk on. As a result, we transfer germs, bacteria, and all kinds of microbes to our faces. Then…ACNE on your cheeks and jawline.

Remedy: You can text instead of talk, avoid pressing the phone to your face, or use speakerphone/headset and clean your cell phone with an alcoholic wipe.

Hot Water
As tempting as it is to cleanse your face and your whole body with hot water because it feels good. Don’t do it. The hot water is not what actually cleanses your face anyway, it’s the product that you use.

The temperature that your water would need to be to really cleanse your skin alone would burn your skin off! Using hot water only strips the skin and dries it out. When your face is dry, it overcompensates by producing excess oil which leads to clogged pores and breakouts.

Remedy: Use tepid or lukewarm water for cleansing. It will do just fine and your face and skin will thank you. You’ll see and feel the difference in your skin.

Toothpaste/Gum
You brush your teeth every day, right? But your particular toothpaste could be the very trigger for those pesky breakouts. It’s the ingredients! Some ingredients like fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, and formaldehyde could add to chronic inflammation. That is extremely bad for acne bacteria (p. acnes) and the response will be far too powerful triggering breakouts.

Remedy: Be sure to read the ingredient labels on your foods and toothpaste. Alternative forms for brushing your teeth include coconut oil or baking soda. You’d be surprised at the result.

Spicy Food
Spicy foods often contain tomatoes and peppers, which contain acidic lycopene that can be an irritant to some people, throwing off their skin’s pH levels and triggering breakouts. However, it isn’t just spicy foods that can irritate your skin. Some people have an aversion to dairy, bread, or other types of foods — how your skin reacts to what you eat just depends on your own personal make-up.

Remedy: Take a break from eating spicy foods (if your skin is irritated by a certain ingredient, you’ll recognize tiny whiteheads or even blemishes in a rash- like pattern around your chin or mouth) for a month to see if that’s the cause of your issue.

That’s it! These ‘4 Amazing Things to Help You Get a Glowing Skin’. We hope this will give you a boost towards getting your skin on track! If you’re overwhelmed, that’s okay. Don’t try to change everything at one time, but you should start making gradual changes, monitor to see if they make a difference, and then go forth with more changes.
Now you do know, this ain’t the end, right? There are many other ways to “get glowing skin” starting with a consistent skincare routine with all of the appropriate components for your particular skin type.
