Tips for acne prone and oily skin

Nearly half of all women will at some point suffer from acne. I often hear women say "I am not a teenager anymore, why am I breaking out?" I would like to share with you some tips that may help reduce your acne and get you on the road to clear skin.

*Make sure your makeup says noncomedogenic-meaning it won't clog your pores.
*If you do suffer from acne and oiliness make sure to change your pillowcase every other day and wash the dirty ones in hot water to remove bacteria.
*The verdict is still out on this one but some research has suggested a reduction in the consumption of dairy products may help clear some hormonal acne.
*DO NOT POP/SQUEEZE PIMPLES! Hard for many to do, but the chance of spreading bacteria and scarring the skin is much too high to justify doing this.
*If you're using acne prodcuts you must use an oil free moisturizer to compensate so you don't become to dry.
*Wash your face last in the shower so as to remove any runaway conditioner or other products that may clog pores.
*Be mindful of touching your face, this simple but easy to forget step can sometimes make a difference.
*Remove makeup before working out, and rinse with cool water afterwards.
*Try a chemical peel, they are antibacterial and have the ability to go deep into the skin and help clear acne.

HairTrix has an excellent line of skincare for acne prone/oily skin. My most important suggestion is to be patient and continue treatment and product usage as recommended. Many FDA approved acne medications contain ingredients that cause skin regeneration. This potentially discouraging process sometimes makes a person breakout more intially. Give it some time, most products will give results in 6-12 weeks. Most treatments will not provide clear skin instantly, but by following professional suggestions and being faithful to your recommended treatments, YOU CAN HAVE CLEAR SKIN!
