5 Steps to clearer skin
Don’t miss a spot
Many people think that treating a spot starts as soon as a spot or a pimple becomes visible. However, you could save yourself time by using spot products daily. The overall aim is to achieve clearer skin and so apply your spot products over the entirety of the face. Treating a spot with targeted treatment may reduce redness and its lifespan, but if you use spot products over the whole face, you may prevent them from forming at all. Dr Alexandrides recommends using the 111SKIN Ground Control Anti Blemish Tonic across the entire face. It’s a gentle toner that removes impurities, keeping your skin pimple-free from the outset. Those with oily skin that’s prone to breakouts will benefit from this even more.
Invest in retinoids
Retinoids can be praised for a number of reasons including their ability to: encourage collagen production, treat uneven skin tone and even reduce acne. Spreading the 111SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Retinol oil over the skin can help to unclog your pores and resurface the skin. Retinoids can help give you clearer skin by reducing acne outbreaks and can also improve the appearance of acne scars.
Topical ingredients take time to work. If you want clearer skin then you have to patient and persistent with your skincare regime. Retinol, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are widely used to treat acne, but give them six or more weeks to work.
Treat scars and redness
Acne sufferers can be faced with unsightly scars and redness even after an outbreak has cleared up. Using the Y Theorem Repair Serum will help to calm your skin and reduce scarring. Over time, the scars and redness will fade leaving behind clearer skin.
Picking spots will inevitably result in scarring or further clogging of the pore. Seeing a big whitehead can make you tempted to squeeze, but this will often make the area inflamed. If you feel the need to squeeze, ensure you get the spots professionally extracted.
