It is important that you wash your face two times day. It is preferable that you wash your face when you wake up and before you go to sleep. When you wake up and go to work, it is important that you wash your face to freshen up your skin after sleeping. After your day is over, your skin will accumulate dust from going outside. Hence, washing your face twice a day is important.

2. Try to reduce your stress

3. Keep your hair clean

Having dandruff can lead to a breakout. Excess oil and dirt in the hair can lead to the skin being damaged by it. It is important to wash your hair two to three times a week. Conditioning your hair with hot oil before washing it can help remove dirt and also keep your hair nourished and smooth. A simple way to get rid of dandruff can be applying a hibiscus hair pack and leaving it on your hair for half an hour before washing it. Another method can be making a mixture with curd and egg whites, applying it to your hair and leaving it on for half an hour.Both these pastes can be applied once a week or once in two weeks.

It might be satisfying to pop pimples. Some people have a common misconception that popping pimples can get rid of pimples. This is a myth and not true at all. Popping pimples can actually leave a mark or multiple marks on your face. Refrain from popping pimples. Leave them to be and follow these simple remedies without disturbing them.

5. Aloe Vera and Apple Cider vinegar

Aloe Vera gel, ointment or cream is a common remedy for pimples for any skin type. Aloe Vera opens your pores and allows air to travel through leaving your skin fresh and rejuvenated. If you are picking Aloe Vera as a remedy, it is preferable that you choose the Aloe Vera gel. If available, take the gel directly from the plant as ointments from skin care lines and beauty products might have added chemicals. Apple Cider Vinegar contains organic acid which can get rid pimples easily. Apply the vinegar on a cotton ball and apply it on your face for 15 minutes. Aloe Vera can also be combined with multiple natural products to apply on your skin including cinnamon, coconut oil scrub, antibacterial spray, lemon juice, honey, sugar scrub etc.

6. Be soft on your skin

Harsh rubbing with a towel, hands or soap can damage the skin. Refrain from doing so. Pat gently onto your skin with a soft towel. It is important that you use a clean towel on your face as dirty towels have dirt and dust and can harm your skin once they come in contact.

There are three main areas on your face where skin, oil and dirt can accumulate- the nose, chin and forehead. Cleaning these three areas can help prevent damage and pore accumulation to any part of the skin. But this does not mean you neglect the other parts of your face. Make sure you wash your face thoroughly but concentrate more on these three areas specifically.

8. Exercise more often

Exercising not only helps reduce stress which gets rid of pimples but also opens up pores easily and gets rid of toxins in the body. Exercising also gives your skin a natural glow which can be hard to obtain with skin care products. The exercise can be of any type as long as you are sweating it out. However, if you are swimming as an exercise, there is a different regime you should follow. If you are going swimming, despite the weather apply sunscreen and wash your face before and after swimming to get rid of the chlorine from the water.

9. Cut back on foods with sugar

Eating foods with sugar and excess oil can be bad for your skin. What you eat is very important for your skin. What you intake is very important as it can have an adverse effect on your skin. Eating healthy can help get rid of pimples and acne and clear your skin. If you are eating junk food and unhealthy food with excess oil, it might be time for you to switch your diet, not just for your skin but for your physical and mental health as well.

10. Exfoliate- a little but not a lot

Exfoliating the skin is good and removes the dead cells from your skin. It opens up the pores and clears the dirt in your skin. The process is highly satisfying. However, doing it on a regular can ultimately damage your skin causing irritation and make your skin rough. Also, try not using and testing several face products. See what components your skin adapts well to and buy face products with those constituents. Read the back of the product for properties before buying a product or testing it out. It is also preferable to read reviews online before purchasing a specific product.

Points to remember:

Not all skin types are the same. Each skin type has different properties and the way it adapts to various products. Consult a dermatologist to find out your skin type before purchasing or beginning a new product on your face. Always stay hydrated and never get lazy when it comes to skincare. Good skin is confidence.
