Like many women, I struggled with acne as a teenager and not only did it do damage to my skin – but to my self-esteem as well. Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria often due to hormonal fluctuations. Although it is said to be very common during puberty, I also struggled with acne as an adult and it took many years (and products) to finally find a solution.
I no longer have acne but I do get the occasional breakout (usually during that time of the month) so I’ve developed a skin care routine to treat and maintain a healthy, glowing skin. Below I will share routines that work for me and my favorite skin care hacks; but before I do that, I must share the most important first step – nutrition!
Promoting healthy skin starts with adopting good nutritional habits. Your skin is constantly under construction and it uses vitamins and nutrients from food to repair and rebuild. Therefore, a diet high in sugar and fat may make a breakout more likely – To put simply, it’s important to limit the amount of greasy and sugary food that goes in your body. Try grilled food instead of fried and replace juices and sodas with water… lots of water!
All skin types are not created equally; so therefore, what works for one person may not work for another – identifying which type of acne you’re experiencing is key to successful treatment. Acne is broken down in two categories non-inflammatory and inflammatory but it’s possible to have a combination of both.
If you are acne-prone, I would recommend oil-free products.
