Find out how you can get acne-free skin...
How's your complexion looking these days? Is it oil free, shine free, perfectly hydrated, radiant, smooth, and free from any imperfections?
Yeah, probably not likely. Although no one is perfect, you can do everything in your power to make sure your skin looks great at all times. Because let's face it, we all want a great complexion, and that means staying acne free. What causes acne anyway? Unfortunately most people don't even know. They just go about buying loads and loads of treatments, which unfortunately worsens the situation sometimes. To be acne free, you must first understand your face.
Okay, so you know your skin type; that's a good start. It's now time to find products that work well for you. Just because they say they're for your particular skin type, doesn't mean that they'll do your mug justice. While we all typically understand that pimples erupt due to clogged pores, many of us do not attack this dilemma in the right fashion. So you have dead skin, oil and bacteria; you know that these are the catalysts that initiate acne, but do you know how to deal with them properly?

First of all, you don't want to over-cleanse. This will only aggravate and irritate your delicate skin further. The last thing you need is a dry face.
This dilemma will actually cause your glands to pump out more oil to compensate. What you need is balance if you want to be acne free. Try a gentle cleanser that's dermatologist recommended. This will wash away the dirt and oil, but not strip the skin's surface. A topical treatment may be necessary to apply after cleansing. It's always prudent to pat the face dry with a clean towel. You don't want to rub and cause further irritation.
Proper diet is also a key factor in maintaining acne free skin. What we eat comes out through our pores. Think fruits, vegetables, and plenty of water. These give our body nutrients that we need everyday. A final tip concerning acne free skin relates to your night's sleep. Are you getting enough of it? You want to be sure to get enough rest each day. This reduces stress and fatigue, which in turn affects your complexion. You may want to switch pillow cases every night as well. I know this sounds crazy, but all of that bacteria is imbedded into your pillow case every night when you sleep. Do you really want to rub your clean face on it night after night? With the right steps, you too can become acne free.
