Our habits have a huge impact on our lives, in particular on how we look. The right habits can save you from acne, make your skin beautiful, well-groomed, smooth, radiant, and also help to delay old age for a long time.
In this article, I will tell you about the right habits that will save you from acne and other skin problems.
Most of the things that I will tell you about today, I regularly use myself, but some I still try to put into a habit. But which of us is perfect? But we will do our best, right?
So, let’s get started …
Habits That Will Save You From Acne
And first of all it is …
1. Not Treatment But Prevention
No matter how trite it may sound, but the problem with the skin and indeed with anything is easier to prevent than get rid of it.
Therefore, take care of your skin every day in the morning and evening with products that suit your skin type.
If this is your first time on my blog, I advise you to pay attention to Korean cosmetics, not only because my blog is mostly about the Korean cosmetics, but because it is really very effective and natural.
I started using Korean cosmetics at the age of 19 and I honestly admit to you that it just changed my skin beyond recognition.
Read the article is Korean cosmetics good and the pros and cons of Korean cosmetics, there I talked about my experience using Korean cosmetics, told why this cosmetics is so popular, and also described in detail all the advantages and disadvantages of Korean cosmetics and the Korean skin care method.
What is included in prevention of acne or what does it consist of?
Firstly, it is the right skin care twice a day (in the morning and evening) with the help of correctly selected skin care products.
If you have problem skin, then you should read the article best Korean cosmetic lines for problem prone acne skin. There, I did a detailed review of the most tested and effective Korean cosmetics, which will become your indispensable assistant in the fight against acne and inflammation. And also there I gave some tips for those who are just starting to care for their skin. So follow the link, I think it will be interesting to you.
Secondly, it is a proper diet, which should be at least 80% of your diet. All harmful products should be minimized.
If you like to eat fast food, chips, drink soda, and suddenly decide to immediately give up all this 100%, then most likely you will soon break loose and return to your usual diet.
Therefore, I offer you a way out that I use myself. My food is 80% healthy. Nevertheless, I can pamper myself and eat chips once or twice a week or drink soda, and this will not affect my skin condition.
But the main thing to remember is that everything should be in moderation.
Thirdly, what is included in the prevention of acne and other skin and health problems is sport. Sports in general have a positive effect on the whole body, in particular on the skin.
So here everything is interconnected – in a healthy body – a healthy mind. Wanted to get rid of acne, and as a result, in addition to this, you will get a chic, healthy body and a stronger and more disciplined character.
2. The Right Shave
Point specifically for men
Those who are used to shaving every day or every other day probably often encounter such problems as irritated skin, small rashes and ingrown hairs.
But you can avoid all of this if you follow a few recommendations.
Firstly, before shaving, wash your face for at least a minute with warm but not hot water. This will steam out the skin, the hair will become more supple and the skin will be less injured.
Secondly, if you have rashes, then think about the shaving product that you use. As a rule, all shaving foams and shaving gels contain menthol. Even those for sensitive skin contain it. So, this is not the best option.
Although that being said that menthol is an antiseptic and has high anti-inflammatory and bactericidal properties. But I think that you noticed that if you cut yourself and menthol got into the wound, then it starts to terribly burn skin. So for problem skin prone to inflammation and acne – this is not an option.
So how to shave, you ask?
I’ll tell you the life hack, which I often use myself …
Instead of shaving gel, use aloe vera gel. A razor glides along it perfectly, and if you suddenly get a little scratch, then you may not even feel it.
Aloe vera gel calms irritated skin, heals micro-damages of the skin, has anti-inflammatory properties and accelerates cell regeneration.
The only negative is that aloe gel doesn’t foam, if suddenly this is your favorite part of shaving.
Thirdly, don’t forget that the razor blade must be sharp, in no case rusty, that you can’t catch the infection. And also don’t forget to wash the razor more often during shaving in warm water.
Fourthly, after you have shaved, wash your face with lukewarm water, gently blot your face with a towel. Just blot it, don’t rub it, especially after shaving. And then smear your face and neck with aloe vera gel. It will heal all wounds, prevent the skin from becoming inflamed, help in the fight against acne and moisturize the skin well.
In addition, aloe gel smells nice, usually cucumber and cools pleasantly.
Read the article best Korean aloe vera gels, there I reviewed the best gels with aloe content from 92 to 100%, and also talked about my favorite gel.
And about how to get rid or better to prevent hair ingrowth
Do a gentle peeling of the skin 1-2 times a week with the help of peeling gels. I really like these peeling gels, they very delicately clean dead skin particles. Their action is similar to when you wallow in the bathroom for a long time. And then you can easily roll dead skin from your body just with your hand.
Follow these few recommendations and after shaving you will always have beautiful smooth skin without a hint of irritation and inflammation.
Also, men, if suddenly you have not read all the previous paragraphs and not going to read the subsequent ones, thinking that this is not for you, I advise you to read the article men’s skin care or how Korean men take care of their skin. There I talked about the basic skin care, and gave some tips how a man living in the countries of America or Europe, to take care of his skin, so as not to arouse the suspicious looks of others.
3. Healthy Sleep
If you want to save time on something, then saving it on a sleep will definitely not work.
Any person needs to sleep 7-8 hours a day, otherwise it threatens not only acne and early wrinkles. But also depression and major health problems, in particular with the heart.
Lack of sleep also has a big impact on the appearance of harmful and unnecessary habits in many people. In order to stimulate our body and maintain it in working condition with lack of sleep, we show a tendency to such habits as coffee or smoking.
4. No Bad Habits
If you want to always be young, healthy and beautiful, then give up bad habits, such as alcohol, cigarettes. Read the article habits that make your acne worse, there I talked in great detail about how to get rid of bad habits once and for all, while not replacing one bad habit with another.
And also, especially if you are a big fan of sunbathing, then try to at least minimize your sunbathing time. Always apply sunscreen in 20 minutes, not just before tanning, but just before going outside. And renew it every 2-3 hours.
The habit of sunbathing threatens not only skin cancer, but also premature aging, wrinkles, freckles and age spots.
If you are afraid that without a tan you will look too pale, then read my article white skin is beautiful or how to look good with pale skin. Read, I’m sure that you will find there a lot of useful things.
5. Walks in the Open Air
I think that it is unnecessary to talk about the benefits of walking in the fresh air, because everyone already knows about it.
Walking will help you get rid of stress and fatigue, strengthen your immunity, boost your mood, energize you and help get rid of insomnia.
Insomnia and lack of sleep are bad for your skin and overall health. Read more about this in the article causes of occurrence and acne treatment methods.
As well as regular sports and walks in the fresh air perfectly affect the appearance. The skin becomes elastic, and the body is toned.
6. Dress For The Weather
It happens that skin problems occur due to the fact that you were frozen. Of course, acne doesn’t appear from this, but subcutaneous pimples with ease.
I used to go around the house often in a sleeveless T-shirt, even if I was a little chilly. But because of this I began to have subcutaneous pimples on my back and sometimes on my face. As soon as I began to dress according to temperature, they disappeared.
So be attentive to how you dress, so that you are not cold, or vice versa hot, which is also bad. And make sure that you are not blown with cold air. This is a very simple advice on how to get rid of subcutaneous pimples. But for some reason many forget about it.
7. Touch Your Face Less
I don’t know how about you, but I used to find myself often that my hands were near my face. This is fraught not only with acne and inflammation, but also with premature skin aging. If you want to know why, then read the article bad habits that cause premature skin aging.
So if you have such a habit, then get rid of it. If it’s very difficult, then take something in your hands, for example, hold a phone or squeeze an anti-stress ball in your hand.
8. Drink More Water
For example, I just can’t imagine my morning without a glass of water. As soon as I wake up, I immediately drink a glass of water. If I don’t, then most likely I will fall asleep.
Try to drink 1.5-2 liters of water per day. To be honest, I don’t specifically measure how much I drink, I just accustomed myself to drink more, and I just drink as much as I want.
9. Drink Green Tea
Try to drink 2 cups of green tea per day. Just be careful what you drink, because usually on the packages of tea where “green tea” is written there its content is at best a couple percent.
If you want to find real green tea, then always look on the packaging for the name and grade of tea, where and how it is produced, what degree of fermentation and roasting it has.
Tea with a small content of green tea certainly of course doesn’t hurt. But if you want tea to have a positive effect on the skin, then you need real green tea.
10. Wipe Your Face With Disposable Towels
I admit to you honestly, I do not do that. I just try to change the towel more often, so that it is always clean. And I don’t wipe my face with a towel, I just gently blot it for several seconds, and then I apply toner.
If you want to know why exactly few seconds and then apply toner, then read the article 10-step Korean skin care.
11. Change Pillowcases Two Times A Week
Agree, changing a pillowcase takes no more than one minute, and your skin will thank you very much.
12. Peeling Without Fanaticism
Peel your face 1-2 times a week, not more often, using only special products intended for this. No ground rice or sugar – leave it for the skin of the body, but for the face it is too rough.
You know, once I read some kind of review on Korean cosmetics, probably on toner. And there the girl wrote that only toner with aloe vera can soothe her irritated skin after scrub.
Firstly, after exfoliation there should be no irritation on the skin. Secondly, you don’t need to rub the skin, rubbing peeling into it. You need to gently, with light massage movements to slide over the skin for 1-2 minutes, no more.
The most ideal option for exfoliation is peeling gel, it acts most gently and delicately.
13. Wipe The Phone Screen With A Wet Towel
A million bacteria accumulate on the phone during the day. And if you still have the habit of pressing the phone to your cheek during a conversation, then acne is not far away.
So just make it a habit to wipe your phone’s screen with a wet towel at least once a day. Or you can try talking through the headphone, it’s quite convenient.
14. Cleansing Cosmetic Accessories
Cleaning brushes for makeup does not require as much effort as it might seem. But the skin will be grateful to you for this. Each time we touch the face with a brush, it picks up bacteria that have accumulated on the surface of the skin, which remain inside the bristles of the brush. And the next time fall back onto the face, even with a layer of powder or foundation.
By cleansing the brushes at least once a week, you can avoid the mass of harmful manifestations on the skin, which by the age of 30 is already a serious problem.
15. Move Hair Out From Face
I really like to wear loose hair and side bangs, but I try at home to put my hair in the tail more often or braid a spikelet or do some other not complicated, but beautiful hairstyle.
This is very important especially in the summer, when we sweat more often. And if at this time the hair touches the face, then acne doesn’t last long.
Therefore, girls, pick up a couple of hairstyles that perfectly suits you and that you can easily do.
Also, a lot of beautiful hairstyles can be done on long loose hair, just to move hair from the face. Take a closer look, find an ideal option for yourself.
16. Right Thinking
It would seem that how proper thinking can help in the fight against acne – it can. And the point is not that we always get exactly what we believe in. Yes, but here we will talk about something else.
Here we will focus on stress, or rather on the fight against it. Because I think we all know that strong and prolonged stress negatively affects not only the condition of our skin, but also our health and life in general.
I meant instill in yourself the correct thinking that if you cannot control the situation, then learn to let it go. And then and only then will you feel truly free.
It helps me a lot, or rather not, the only thing that helps me cope with stress and fear is that I am a Christian. I just do for a 100% what depend on me, and then I say, “God, what I could do, I did perfectly, now it’s Your turn, please help me.”
And you know, it’s like flying in an airplane – my task is to buy a ticket and get on a plane, but I don’t control the plane. And as soon as I stop worrying and realize that I am not a pilot, but a passenger … Then I feel an incredible peace and joy in my soul. I just can relax and enjoy the beautiful view from a height of several thousand meters.
Even if you are not Christian, I think that you still understand what I’m talking about.
Also at the expense of proper thinking … what else brings stress or takes our strength.
This is condemnation and gossip. Just give them up, firstly, it’s a sin. And secondly, who gave you the right to condemn or discuss others – it’s mean and low. So if this item is about you – stop doing it.
And also we are all very harmed by grumpiness and eternal discontent with everyone.
Agree, a disgruntled person it is strange, it is even somehow unnatural.
Just think about why you are unhappy, because you have everything. Yes, I don’t know your specific situation, but I think that you have two arms and two legs, you have family and friends, or at least one friend or person you can just talk to. For this, you can already be grateful.
In addition, it seems to me that if you read the article habits that will save you from acne, then you are somewhere between 12 and 30 years old and most likely you have never fought in Afghanistan or Chechnya or elsewhere. You are most likely a resident of America or Europe. If there is peace in your country, then you should already be grateful for that.
But that’s a topic for another article. If you are interested in it, then read the article how to stop procrastinating or procrastination doesn’t come alone. There I talked a lot about the reasons for procrastination and the fact that procrastination as a problem is never one. It is often accompanied by fears, self-dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, feelings of worthlessness, and even childhood traumas.
If you are interested, then follow the link, I’m sure you will find a lot of useful information there.
The little things we do daily have the greatest impact on how we look, in particular on our skin.
Accustom yourself, regardless of gender, to do skin care twice a day, eat properly, eat more fresh vegetables and fruits and drink more water.
Love yourself and be beautiful!
