We all want our skin to look healthy and young and springy and the list can go on. This brings me to the point that most of us are very conscious about our skin and how it looks. We will go through a lot of trouble to ensure that our skin is protected from harsh environmental elements.

By now, we all know that our skin is the largest organ in our body. Our skin protects our internal system as well as ensures that toxins can be released from our body and at the same time ensures that water is retained in our body. This becomes even more urgent when we suffer from acne.

Below are the top 3 tips on how to take care of acne prone skin.

Acne Skin Care -Tip #1

To attain beautiful skin, ensure that you invest in a good body loofah. This helps to eliminate dead skin cells from the body. Also, it helps to prevent the development of ingrown hair!

Ensure you never use a loofah on your face. Our facial tissues are more sensitive than other parts of the body. You want to ensure you do not tear the skin which can cause more complications.

However, it is necessary to avoid using any body exfoliant on the face. The main reason for this precaution is that the facial tissue is more sensitive and finer than those tissues of the body.

Acne Skin Care -Tip #2

Drinking water is one way to reduce acne or stop the inflammation. We are so fixated on using creams and lotions that seriously forget some of the simplest things in life are under our noses. Drinking lots of water will keep our skin hydrated. The best benefit of water is it is FREE and can hardly cause you any serious damage unless drunk in large quantities (that is another blog in itself!)

A well hydrated face means that there is less chance of hydration which then causes the production of sebum oil from the sebaceous glands.

The bottom line, drink the recommended 4-8 glasses of water a day and watch your face transform in front of your eyes.

Acne Skin Care -Tip #3

Maintaining a diet is so important. This allows for healthier skin. If your diet is made up of oily foods and acidic foods, it will show on your face through oily skin and frequent acne breakouts.
