1. Reduce your sugar intake. Stick to fruits, vegetables and grains. Trust me, it really helps.

Instead, stick to washing your face, at least once a day, with warm water. Or try using a natural scrub made from plants such as cucumber, tea, flowers, etcetera. (Plus, plants leave a long lasting, sweet smelling scent
3. Save the makeup for special occasions. If you wear it all the time, it blocks your pores and only makes the acne worse.
4. Moisturise. Keep your face hydrated, especially in cold weather. Use a moisturiser, with hardly any chemicals in, at least once a day (after you've washed your face).
I've tried all of these and they really do help. They don't cure acne, but they do make it a whole lot better. They even help against my dermatitis. ^-^
Those are some really good tips!
I'm guilty of loving chocolate, Mountain Dew, and flavored coffee creamers. (Mountain Dew is only a treat I have once every week or two.) I could probably cut back on my sugar intake a bit.
I used to use Proactiv and AcneFree facial scrubs until I found out about a 100% natural Dead Sea mineral mud soap bar, which I've switched to now.
Yup, I've been down that road. The only makeup I wear now is mascara, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick or gloss.
I'm guilty of always forgetting to moisturise.
I really should be doing it to because the combination of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin phosphate have been really drying to my skin.
