Do These 6 Things To Embrace Clear, Acne-Free Skin

What Should You Do When Your Skin Is Constantly Breaking Out? 

You’ve tried every shortcut to achieve acne-free skin. You’ve even tried the most promising product that guarantees freedom from acne.

Just when you feel that you’re FINALLY noticing a reduction in your acne, the following day, you see yet another bump. More than anything, these random breakouts make you feel mentally exhausted. And steal your inner confidence. 

So much that these incessant acne attacks stop you from taking selfies and posing in group pictures. Because you can no longer deal with the overpowering embarrassment due to this pesky skin condition. 

But all this while you’ve tried and tested the ‘BIG’ things that can free you from acne. How about going back to basics and addressing this issue from the roots? 

Because as much as acne is a topical skin condition, it also has a lot to do with what goes on inside your body. 

Ready to find out what it takes to celebrate clear, acne-free skin? 

Check out the 6 must-dos to embrace your dream skin: 

  1. Resist the urge to pop: 

What’s the first impulse when you see that ugly pimple go blood red with a massive bump? Doesn’t your mind say, “POP IT?”

While we understand your pain, popping that pimple can invite more trouble than respite. 

Popping that pimple increases the chances of spreading bacteria, causing more breakouts. Not just that, when that pimple is popped, there’s also a possibility that it can even enter the deeper layers of your skin.

Instead, what you must do is, let the pimple settle down on its own. 

The incessant wait will test your patience but save your skin from further damage. 

  1. Wash your face: 

Maintaining skin hygiene is the first step on the long road to acne-free skin.  

Throughout the day, our skin gets covered in layers of dirt, oil, and dust. When these foreign particles stay on the skin’s surface for long hours, it clogs your skin pores. And these unresolved clogged pores become the warmest invitation to acne. 

That’s why washing your face twice a day is non-negotiable. It keeps your skin clean and lets it breathe freely. 

Invest in a gentle face wash like our Stelanore’s Date Night Acne-Control face Wash. It’s specially designed to fight acne attacks.

Bonus:  It deeply cleanses your skin without stripping off its natural oils. 

  1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: 

You probably grew up listening to your mother say, “Drink more water to have great skin.” 

While there’s no denying hydration is the open secret to glowy skin, but does drinking enough water keep acne at bay?” 

It turns out it does. 

Dermatologists say drinking water removes toxins and bacteria from the skin, limiting the chances of pore clogging. 

Secondly, when your skin is well hydrated, it keeps up with its rejuvenation and collagen production. This supports your skin’s healing from acne and reduces inflammation from pimples. 

Secret: Hydrated skin looks younger. 

Isn’t this one more reason to up your water intake? 

  1. Don’t skip the serum/moisturizer: 

If there’s one acne misconception that needs to be done away with, don’t use a moisturizer if you have acne; it will make your skin even more oily. 

This statement is far from true. 

If you nix the moisturizer, your skin lays dry and dehydrated. This dryness compels your skin to overproduce oil glands, which worsens acne. Instead, it’s wise to use a lightweight moisturizer/serum specially formulated for acne-prone skin like our Date Night Acne-Control Serum and This serum not only arrests acne production but also nourishes your skin.  

  1. Be careful of what you eat:

There can never be enough talk about how your skin reflects your diet. 

If you eat lifeless junk, your skin will look exactly like that… lifeless. But if you feed your body nutritious, fresh food, your skin will look like a million bucks. 

The bitter truth is – if you have acne-prone skin, you must be even more careful of what enters your body. 

These are the foods you must avoid to prevent acne: 

  • Sugary desserts 
  • Fast food like pizza, pasta, noodles  
  • Whey protein powder
  • Dairy products 
  • Chocolate 

That being said, we understand you would want to gorge on that double cheese pizza and that irresistible chocolate pastry once in a while. But let that only be an occasional affair. At other times, stay committed to eating healthy. 

So yes to more simple, home-cooked meals and a solid no to junk. 

Do this for a month, and notice how your skin rewards you! 

  1. Destress and get enough shut-eye:

Research says that when you don’t sleep enough, it increases stress. And this leads to a spike in cortisol levels, increasing inflammation and sebum production, leading to more breakouts. 

Phew, this sounds like a long process, isn’t it?

But unsurprisingly, it can change your skin situation in a few days. 

Not just that, if you don’t sleep well enough, it can create a hormonal imbalance in your body and attack your immune system. These factors again can become causes of an acne spur. 

Instead, clock in at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. And engage in activities that can help you unwind. It could be meditation, breath work, reading, journaling, dancing, or painting. 

There are numerous options. Choose what works for you. 

It’s strongly recommended that you inculcate sleep hygiene and slow down – you’ll be surprised at how clean, flawless skin thrives on rest. 

The route to acne-free skin is long, but it will surely take you to your desired destination, provided you stay sincere and consistent.
