How Can You Control Your Acne Without Products?

Acne is a huge pain in the butt, especially for teens. While you are growing up you get pimples, that’s the deal. But there are ways to contain your pimples without any fancy products. I’m going to show you them here.

Eat Healthy

Food is about 25% of the picture when it comes to acne. Eating healthier means healthier skin. But not just in general. There are different food recommendations for different skin types. For especially acne-prone skin I recommend eating low-fat whole food. If you find it hard to stay on track with the right foods while eating, I have a whole post about that here.

Get more sleep

Sleep is nourishment for your whole body including your skin. If you do not get enough sleep your skin will be dry, because the cells aren’t getting the nourishment they need from your cells while you sleep. This is another importance of sleep. If you want to know how sleep can improve your lifestyle you can find that here. Also, not getting enough sleep means your skin is unbalanced, so you are more likely to experience breakouts and redness. To sum all of this up, getting the recommended eight hours of sleep each night, while hard for teenagers, will drastically improve your skin.

Stress less

Too much stress in your life can cause major breakouts, and breakdowns if you are anything like me. I try to avoid too much stress whenever I can, and doing that has made my skin so much more glowy, lifted, and just so much nicer. When you get stressed, your brow and lips scrunch up, and that leads to wrinkles. I don’t know about you but I always found Mondays really stressful. I was able to be way calmer on Mondays because of these tactics.

Drink more water

Drinking more water helps your skin because it flushes out toxins in your body. This gives you glowing beautiful skin. Also, drinking more water reduces puffiness, because your body is no longer storing water to protect you from dehydration. You have always wanted smaller pores right? Well drinking more water can help you get them. Drinking a lot of water balances out the oil at the top of your skin which will give you the appearance of smaller pores. If you want to learn about more benefits of drinking water, you can find that here.

Protect yourself from the sun

This doesn’t mean you have to stay inside all the time. This just means that you should at least wear sunscreen and maybe a hat. Sun is a main cause of wrinkles and older looking skin. I suggest putting sunscreen on everyday, even when it is cloudy out. You don’t have to go overboard, but protecting your face from the suns unforgiving rays will go a long way in the long run towards getting and keeping that young fresh skin.
