Are you following your home care regimen and faithfully following your product routine and still getting break outs? In addition to getting regular facials at our day spa here are a few little tips to help you out!
Wash your make-up brushes!
In brushes that have not been cleaned it’s an easy place for bacteria to grow and multiply when this happens you are spreading the growing bacteria all over your skin every time you use the brush. In return you will continue to have break outs and blemishes despite your skin care routine. Depending on how often you apply make up and the manufacturer of your brushes you would clean them either weekly or monthly. (if you apply a full face of make up daily clean your brushes every week, but if you only apply make up every few days you can wait longer to clean them)
There are many types of brush cleaning sprays you can purchase and use or if you are looking for items around the house, shampoo or using a gentle dish soap with a drop of olive oil is a great option as well. After washing them reshape the bristles and allow to sit over night to dry!
Skip fabric-softener with pillow cases!
Try washing your sheets and pillow cases more often first, but if that doesn’t work try skipping the fabric-softener. Fabric-softener basically adds a coding over the fabric which can be irritating your skin while sleeping! Try out this tip especially if you are having break outs specifically on the side of your face you tend to have against the sheets.
Wipe down your phones screen!
Especially now that cell phones never leave our sides they collect all types of dirt, debris, oils from our finger tips, and bacteria. Make sure you clean your phone frequently so none of that will spread to your skin.
It’s not just about making sure your skin is clean but making sure everything that touches your skin is clean too! Especially if you have break-out prone skin take the extra precautions 🙂
