Blemish Free Skin
Magnificent Skin from Blotchy to Blemish Free
Have you ever noticed how some people just seem to have this blemish free skin that is beautiful and glowing? It's almost effortless for them. The truth is that we are all born with varying types of skin tone, texture and color and it can be an excruciating process trying to keep our skin evenly balanced. Some people, like those mentioned, are born with blemish free skin. However, it is almost certainly a guarantee that many of these wonder women have a bit of help. What you need to do is figure out why you are getting blemishes and blotchy skin and what the solution is. So let's get started.
What Causes Your Blemishes?
Now before you go jumping to any conclusions; remember that blemishes can be caused by allergies as well. You may be trying to treat something that is beyond the controls of even the best and most expensive skincare creams. If your blemishes become itchy or they are accompanied by a post nasal drip, consider asking your local chemist about safe antihistamines that won't make you drowsy during the day. However, it is more common that you are experiencing acne.
Basically, blemishes come as a result of not properly cleaning the skin. This doesn't mean that you are a dirty person but it could mean that you don't know how to wash your face in a way that suits your sensitive or acne prone skin without aggravating blemishes. Ultimately you need to stop the skin on your face from getting infected. With skin that blemishes easily, there is usually some sensitivity and an overproduction of oil.
What can you do about it?
If you have an acne skin, it is best to use natural ingredients or products that incorporate these ingredients. Things like milk and honey are easily attainable and far less expensive than a costly, brand name product. Milk is a great cleanser for skin with blemishes as it is soft and natural and doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils. You will literally wash your face with a small bowl of milk; no soap is needed.
It is however; best to buy yourself a toner as we have yet to come across a natural toner that works as effectively despite claims. Once you have gently toned your face with a skin pad, you can apply honey straight onto the skin.
Be sure to warm it without allowing it to get boiling hot. Leave it on for 5- 10 minutes and wash off with warm water. You will be amazed at the positive effects of honey. Another beauty is that honey helps to take redness out of your skin. So, where you do have blemishes, they will be far less noticeable. This is a much better way to "cover up" than plastering your face with oily make up products.
These normally do more harm than good as they block the pores. If you must wear makeup, be sure to get a matte base and to wash it off as soon as you are home from work or a night out. You can also try using a spot stick. Environ make great tea tree sticks that will help you to eliminate blemishes.
