• Five Steps to the Most Effective Acne Treatment


    Five Steps to Effective Acne TreatmentAny time of year, it’s always a good time to take a look at your skin and see if your acne treatment regimen is really working. Maybe you’re still looking for the right acne products because you’re looking for perfect skin. But the most effective acne treatment regimen is more than that – it’s about making responsible lifestyle choices that help keep your skin clear and healthy. Here are five of those lifestyle choices you can make to keep your skin healthy.


    1 – “Eating” Your Water: One of the easiest lifestyle choices you can make is making sure you stay hydrated. Hydrated skin doesn’t over-produce oil that can cause breakouts. Along with drinking water, eating fruits and vegetables that are antioxidant-rich and that contain cellular water will help keep your skin looking great all year round.


    2 – Finding the Right Acne Treatment: Of course, the aisles are full of different acne products that try to catch-all acne solutions. But not all acne products are the same, just like everybody’s skin needs aren’t the same! Murad makes several options for different types of skin. Products like the Murad Acne Complex line is great for most types of skin, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right combination of acne products for your skin. You may want to consider anti-aging acne products, acne pill supplements, and perhaps alternative cleansers.

    3 – Always Take Off Your Makeup!: When you come home at night, sometimes it’s late, you’re tired, and the last thing that you want to do is wash your face and remove your makeup before you hit the sack. But it’s never too late to start making a habit of taking off your makeup before bed. A nighttime acne skin care regimen is always best, but you should at least buy some moist wipes around and keep them handy so you can take your makeup off before you go to bed even if you can’t muster the energy for anything else!


    4 – Wash Your Pillowcases: It sounds like it would be an old wives’ tale, but it’s certainly true that dirt and bacteria can build up on your pillowcases, and when you fall asleep, they will transfer to your skin and cause acne breakouts. You certainly don’t want to expose your skin to extra bacteria! Make sure that you are washing and changing your pillowcases on a regular basis.


    5 –Taking 15 Minutes to De-Stress and Relax: We say it a lot because it’s true: stress can take its toll on your face by causing breakouts. Make a habit of taking fifteen minutes out of your day to relax and de-stress from your day. There are lots of ways you can do this – some music, a candle, even just a glass of wine. Just make sure it’s “you” time!


    Like any beginnings or changes to your acne treatment regimen, it will take time for your skin to clear. Make sure you can keep your habits manageable. Just as long as you keep consistent with these five steps, your skin can look clear all year round.

    • pillow cases! i did n’t know that i could get acne from pillowcases . although i wash my pillowcases is there another way to still disinfect them i really don’t want to have anything to do with acne. thank you.

    • I didn’t know about pillow cases either and I guess that holds true for hats as well. I used to wear a baseball cap all the time when I was growing up. I guess that’s why my forehead kept breaking out. Thanks for the tips!
