With improving your skin there are dozens of folk tales, potions, serums and creams that are extremely ineffective and quite frankly a waste of your time to even consider. If your tired of always looking at “the new way” to achieve perfect skin, then look no further.
- Don’t Scrub to Hard– Contrary to popular belief scrubbing hard on your skin can open your pores leaving them more susceptible to infection and acne build up. It is better to stroke your skin softly with your fingers or with fruit skins like mango and strawberries if you are not allergic. If your skin is not highly sensitive try leaving fruit acid on your skin for a few minutes, you will be amazed by the effects in just a few short weeks.
- Avoid Using Hot Water– many of us are told that hot water is the key to creating clean and healthy skin. But the truth is that when using truly hot water it will irritate your skin, cause dryness redness peeling and internal swelling which will lead to acne build ups. It is best to use mild water over hot.
- Oil is Actually Good for you– many are told that oil causes build ups in your skin which leads to clogged pores and inflammation but the truth is when used properly oil can effectively heal and even your skin tone. Natural vegetable oils like coconut will protect your skin from the harmful ones previously referenced.
- Watch your Carbohydrate intake
Another old wives’ tale is that chocolate is the cause for acne breakouts. The reality is that this is not the case at all. The truth is natural sugary/fatty foods like pasta and bread are the cause of such facial injections so if you are looking to optimize the quality of your skin lay off the bread for a couple days.
- Maintain a Balanced Diet
In addition to rubbing them on your face, fruits are always great to consume to maintain a healthy body. Fruits and vegetables are packed with essential vitamins and minerals that will keep the facial impurities at bay. Always make sure that you are hydrated as well this in many cases can be more important than the food you eat.
