Take the Clear Skin Challenge!
Week 1: Back to Basics: To get that healthy glow, there are some habits you’ve got to correct pronto. The first is keepin’ clean. It’s super important girls wash their hair daily—preferably at night. Otherwise, oil from your hair can rub off onto your pillow and you know where that will end up...your face. Wash your hair each night before you go to bed.
Shopping Spree! The most important thing to get this first week is a cleanser that is right for your skin—the sooner, the better. Grab your mom or dad and head over to the local grocery store. Whether you have oily, dry, normal, or sensitive skin, there’s def a cleanser that’s right for you. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser isn’t harsh and will keep skin clear (get it online or at drugstores).
If you play a sport or are active this summer, be sure to wash your face after—it’s important to get the sweat off ASAP—or wind up with a breeding ground for zits. At night, apply your spot treatment to any pimples you do have. Don’t apply to the rest of your face—it has drying agents that could make the rest of your face flaky and that’s the last thing any girl wants.
When it comes to dealing with acne, attack it with consistency. Don’t skip out on washing your face or applying your treatment. While it may not seem like a lot, doing these things each day will make a difference in the long run, promise.
