32 Best Tips for Clear Skin You Need To Be Following
I am so tired of people just telling me this one product or remedy that’s going to make everyone’s skin is better. Everyone’s skin is different and so you have to try different techniques and trips that work for you. I am so sick of putting on more and more makeup to cover up breakouts and blemishes on my face and then having to take a break from the makeup because it’s causing more and more breakouts. For years, I have heard people talk about DIY home remedies that are all natural, and I’ve seen a ton of commercials with people selling creams and products like Proactive and Neutrogena face wash and cleanser. When I was a kid, my mom used to give me Witch Hazel and a cotton ball to rub off my oily skin after a workout. I decided to go to every single beauty site and blog and search all over google to try to figure out exactly tips and hacks actually work for clear skin and which ones don’t. I wanted a list of the absolute best tips for clear skin that were legit.
I have learned a ton from researching this and am already starting to implement some of these tricks into my skin care routine. Did you know that coconut oil is good for your skin, both when you eat it and when you apply it? Did you know that how much water you drink actually affects your pores ability to cleanse and unclog themselves? I have created a list of my favorite beauty hacks for clear skin that I could find. It covers some really awesome face masks that use stuff from home like honey, aloe vera, and avocado. I have some beauty hacks like using ice to shrink your pores to prevent bacteria from getting into them and causing a pimple or breakout. Whether you are a teen whose face is just going crazy with oily skin or you are tired of your foundation coming up oily mid day at work, I think these resources will actually help. For me, I’m already using the lemon use and sugar recipe to clear off dead skin and exfoliate my cheeks post workout. If you have any more ideas for how to get clear skin that I haven’t found, throw them in the comments and I’ll be sure to take a look.
1. Clear Skin Recipe – What To Eat For Clear Skin
To start, I have totally changed my eating habits. From doing all this research, it has become clear to me that I am going to get out what I put in (my body). This is one of my new favorite recipes by Inspired By This that is super healthy, easy to make, and gives my body the nutrients it needs to stay energized and to keep my skin clear. I have learned to stay away from saturated fats and greasy foods. Greens and lean protein are great for clear skin.
2. Blackheads, Begone! Lauren Conrad Schools Us On Perfect Skin
Let’s talk about blackheads. The problem with blackheads is that as soon as I look in the mirror, they are they first thing that I see. So immediately, I want to POP them. Turns out, popping a blackhead, or a pimple, or even touching your face with dirty and oily fingers is the absolute worst thing that you can do for your face. When you pop the blackheads it spreads oils, it gets bacteria into other pores, clogging them and infecting them, and it makes your situation worse. Even though it feels amazing and you think it’s good in the short term, the best thing is to get a facial and let the steam and heat do it’s thing to clear your pores and remove blackheads.
3. Lemon Juice & Baking Soda Clears Your Skin
Lemon juice and baking soda…hear me out. I didn’t believe it either until I saw it multiple times from multiple sources. Once I saw that Livestrong endorsed this trick for my skin, I had to try it. Now I swear by it. It is simple and cheap, and it’s totally DIY. I buy a bunch of lemons and baking soda on Sunday and every day I use this after a workout to give myself a refreshing facial cleanse that doesn’t have any chemicals.
4. Clear Skin Face Mask – Clay Cacao Face Mask
Let’s talk about Rawmazing for a second. They are one of my favorite sources for using natural ingredients to eat clean. Now that I’ve spent all this time looking at clear skin stuff, I know that using natural and clean ingredients is where it’s at. This is a great clay cacao mask sucks up the nasty oils in your skin and leaves your pores feeling clean and open for oxygen to come in and kill left over bacteria. Just don’t eat it.
5. Honey Face Wash — Not As Bonkers As It Sounds
Ever poured an entire bottle of honey on your face? Neither had I. I figured the sugar and the stickiness was an absolutely horrible idea. Turns out, I’m an idiot. Honey has some crazy beneficial effects, especially if you get it locally. Turns out that the bees will gather from the plants and flowers that are local to your geography to give you an added boost to deal with the pollen and dander in the air.
