Hi my loves! This is LEARNTOMAKEUP and I’m Valeria.♥

I have been receiving questions from you asking to tell you some tips for oily/acne prone skin to get ride of scars of pimples in your face. Follow this tips to get a clean, fresh and radiant skin. 

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU DO OR DON’T HAVE OILY/ACNE PRO SKIN TYPE ANSWER THIS QUESTIONS BELOW TO DISCOVER IT.

Did you have a problem during puberty/teen years?
Do you wake up with an oily film on your nose or chin?
Does your foundation wear off within a few hours?
Do new products cause your skin to break out?
Does your skin breaks out during your monthly cycle?

If you said “YES” in more than 2 questions you have oily/acne pro skin.

You don’t need to worry at all, here I will give you the solution.  Trust me, we all have been there at some point of our lives so that’s why today I’m going to give you some tips and advice that you need to add in your routine.

1. STOP TOUCHING YOUR FACE

Your hands have oil, dirt, bacteria, germs so it isn’t good to rub your face. Face is sensitive part of our body  and the oil on your hands can grind/rub into your face from touching it can cause your pores to clog  even acne also it can cause irritation. If you already have acne touching your face constantly will just spread the bacteria of current acne. 

2. KEEP YOUR FACE CLEAN

It’s important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin’s surface. Washing more often than twice daily is not necessarily better; it may do more harm than good. Use warm water and a mild facial cleanser.  Gently wash it with your clean hands or a very soft cloth. Always rinse well, and then dry your face with a clean towel.

3. USE OF MAKEUP  

The makeup you use has a big impact on the health of your skin. If do love makeup you don’t have to stop wearing it, you just need to look for products that say “non-comedogenic” on the label. This means that the product is specifically designed not to clog your pores.  However, you have to wash it off at the end of the day or you will break out even more if you sleep without cleaning your face . If possible, choose oil-free cosmetics without added dyes and chemicals. 

4. FOUNDATION FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN 

The best foundations for oily skin fight shine instead of adding to it. Find an oily skin foundation and set your foundation with a mineral powder. If you need to use more foundation than usual to achieve full coverage, apply light layers, letting them fully set before you apply the next one. 

5. GREEN CONCEALER

After foundation take your green concealer and using a brush start applying it in the blemishes in your face.  Green concealers neutralize red zones on your face, like blemishes or red spots. Use green concealer to better cover up acne and camouflage your skin imperfections.

6. CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES 

Use clean makeup brushes or sponges to apply your products. This makes it much easier to blend your makeup for a more natural finish, and keeps you from touching your face with your fingers, which can harbor excess oils and bacteria. Wash your brushes often  at least two or three times per week, depending on how often you use the brush.

7. EAT HEALTHY

Experts agree that maintaining a healthy diet can go a long way in preventing breakouts. Also, you may not know it but you might have a small allergy to some foods (dairy is a common one) which can spark an immune system response staring with acne or skin problems. Reducing the amount of dairy you eat, along with unhealthy foods like greasy burgers, french fries, chips and soda will undoubtedly help eliminate your breakouts. 

8. EXERCISE


Exercising daily will not only help you look and feel better but it will also help reduce the frequency of your breakouts. Working out increases the blood flow through the body which will keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. Plus, when you workout, you perspire more regularly, which means you eliminate dirt, toxins, and chemicals a lot more efficiently.

9. DRINK WATER 

Drinking water not only hydrates your skin but it eliminates all of the unhealthy toxins from your body–some of which may have been the cause of your earlier breakouts. Consuming at least 8 glasses a day will keep your skin looking radiant and glowing everyday. Combining healthy hydration with regular exercise will prevent breakouts by eliminating excess toxins and oils via perspiration. Your skin will become healthier, less oily, less dry, and less prone to pimples as a result.
