I have done a lot of research and have compiled a few things that I could change that have helped other people with their acne in the past so I thought I would try to give these things a shot. It won't be easy, but I'm at wit's end with my acne lately. The changes are as follows:
- Drink 2-3 servings of green tea per day. I have been doing this for the past week or so and I did notice improvements at first but due to who knows what, I'm having a bad skin period lately. Anyways, I guess green tea does something or another magical and can really help to improve skin tone.
- Having a healthy "caveman" type of diet. This is where you don't eat anything the cavemen couldn't have eaten. AKA no processed foods, no candy, etc. This diet would include fruits and veggies, lean meats, that sort of thing.
- Exercise regularly. THIS. This is going to be the hardest for me. Not only because I have a super busy schedule between work and college and having a boyfriend and homework and and and! But also because I've NEVER had any sort of regular exercise or been super involved in any sports. And I'm just lazy. But exercising is supposed to increase circulation and sort of sweat the toxins out of your body, just be sure to wash your face and body immediately afterwards.
- When I wash my makeup off, to wash it twice. I always just did a quick one pump, scrub-a-dub kind of job without really taking the time to ensure that my skin was clean. Then I would go to bed and I probably still have leftover makeup sitting on my skin all night. Ew! So now, I'm going to wash it like I used to, but THEN, I'm going to take another pump and wash it again and be very gentle but thorough.
These things should hopefully have some sort of positive effect on my skin (maybe not drastic) but every little improvement helps, am I right?
