List of things to avoid acne my experience !!! , my skin basic skin care regimen

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I am not an expert on this but i just wanna share my experience on what i did.

Here is the list of things that did to have clear skin , everybody is different tho so i cant guarantee it will work for every one ,
but why not give it shot :)

Mind my grammar :)

Here are the list :

1.Stop being obsessed or stressed about your acne , it will actually make things worse and I also actually believed that Mental health and acne has some sort of correlation.

2.Stop looking in the mirror all the time, By not looking in the mirror all the time , you wont be obsessing how many spots you have.You will much happier trust me :).Put your time on other things that is more important !.

3.Stop picking/ touching your skin. this will only make your acne worse by spreading bacteria and gunk to your skin and causing scarring.You will see a big difference from not touching.

4.Change the way you sleep , especially your head position. Don't face your cheeks directly on your pillow this will only make things worse. Your skin needs to breathe !!

5.Change your pillow case  at least once a week 

6.Drink at least a gallon of water a day which is equivalent to 3 liters of water. By doing this on a regular basis , u will be constantly flushing out toxins , oil and junk out of your body. Urinating frequently is a good sign.

7.Watched out for your diet , especially foods that contains allergens.
3.Fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod)
4.Crustacean shellfish (e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp)
5.Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans)

8.The way you washed your hair should be change , don't let the shampoo flow onto your face. Some shampoo's contains silicons and non comedogenic substance which will cause clogged pores. Instead try tilting your head down to wash your hair.

9. Try to not to wash you face with cleansers  , just water twice a day morning and night. By doing this your are not constantly stripping your acid mantle , which the mantle has a specific role to keep bad bacteria and harmful particles out.You could still used skin products after washing it with water but make sure that it is not harsh and does not contain any non comedogenic substance. Try more natural products 

10.Finally exfoliate your skin once a week , try investing on a cleansing brush as the process of removing the dead skin will be much faster. Try to avoid exfoliants with beads. After investing the cleansing brush use only water to exfoliate and not cleansers

My Basic skin routine -

Mornings - Bathe and rinse my face with mild to cold water 

Night - Bathe and rinse my face with mild to cold water and apply my favorite vitamin c serum

Once every week - i would apply a green tea mask 

Once every week - exfoliate my face with a cleansing brush with no cleanser

Thanks for sharing! I love these suggestions, especially 1 and 2. Not looking in the mirror or thinking about my acne is SO HARD, but I can imagine that it would be really helpful mentally and even physically. It's a good practice to not let acne control your life so that you can actually enjoy the time that you have.

Great suggestions.  It's a decent start for anyone looking to make changes and they are simple steps.  I would recommend people incorporate 1-2 changes at a time and develop them as habits before adding more.  Trying to incorporate too many things at once can be overwhelming and can cause more stress.
