With the holidays approaching fast…with busy schedules our skin may already be showing the signs of stress that comes along with it. Stress breakouts are common. I want to share with you a few tips that will help you get rid of those pesky breakouts fast.
- You want to make sure you are extracting the blemish properly…when a white or black head appears, use a lancet to remove the bacteria by lightly poking the top of it. This gives the bacteria an easy exit. Use two q-tips to gently push the excess out. This method will keep the bacteria from spreading underneath the skin, which would cause more breakouts in the future.
- To help heal the blemish you want to use a product that attacks the bacteria and leaves your skin with a clean soothed feeling. I recommend Aveda’s outer peace™ acne spot relief. Eliminate breakouts—and the bacteria that lead to more—while reducing redness and swelling. Ideal when extra help is called for.
- Lastly, you want to use a non-comedogenic moisturizer. Olay has a multitude of non-comedogenic moisturizers that treat individual skin types.
