My Number One Acne Fighting Tip

The best tip i can pass on to you guys thats worked fantasticly well for me (for acne/red marks) is taking cooler showers!

They dont have to be freezing cold but the cooler the better. I feel that hot showers raise the surface level temperature of your skin which in turn increases inflammation which in turn increases oil production and therefore acne.

At night-time i simply wash my face with cold water after exfoliating my nose and forehead gently.

Give it a go for a couple of months and see how your skin reacts!

Other tips:

Use products without harsh chemicals, i like to use pyratine xr lotion.

Take pro-vitamins like fivelac (one a day)

get a "waterman" to turn normal tap water acidic. Acidic water has many health benefits, including nuetralising your bodys Ph.

Exfoliate at least once a week, preferably when you shave, but do it gently!

Use a calming face wash like "Good Skin All calm creamy cleanser"

Hope these tips help you guys out as much as they have helped me!!
