The most important rules to remember when clearing acne:
1. High Frequency Treatments
This oxygenates the surface of the skin, killing P.acne bacteria, aids in detoxification, and stops persistent acne in its tracks.
2. Ice Cubes
This is so simple, quick, and easy to help calm inflamed acne and cystic acne. Rub an ice cube over your face right after you wash morning and night to calm redness and inflammation in the skin.
3. Supplements / Birth Control
Some vitamins like B12 and Biotin can exacerbate acne and congestion. I also can’t emphasize enough how important it is to make sure your birth control isn’t the culprit for your breakouts.
4. Acne Safe Makeup
Unfortunately, almost everything at your favorite makeup store is comedogenic, meaning it sits in your pores and creates a microcomedone. This is a huge problem that’s overlooked in the industry. I have a full comprehensive list of acne safe makeup available on my website.
As I’ve stated before, i’m not a licensed nutritionist. For acne sufferers, a Whole 30 diet is typically recommended. High fat, starch, sugar, soy, seaweed, and seafood can all trigger acne. As much as I love crab legs, try and avoid these ingredients in the kitchen.
6. Home Care
This one is absolutely one of the most important to follow. Professional treatments are extremely affective. However, if you’re not using professional products at home consistently, your results will not last.
