5 SIMPLE STEPS TO
Acne can happen at any age. Learn how to treat and prevent it with IMAGE Skincare.
KEEP YOUR PORES CLEAR WITH THE RIGHT CLEANSER
If you’re prone to breakouts, it’s important to use a cleanser than helps prevent those nasty pimples instead of trying to treat them after the fact. Pick a cleanser with salicylic acid like our Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser to gently exfoliate your skin and clear those pores out before a breakout has the chance to sneak in.
If you are on the road a lot or need a quick cleansing solution after the gym, carry salicylic-based cleansing wipes for the same pore-clearing benefits as the cleanser. Our Clear Cell Salicylic Clarifying Pads are perfect for use on-the-go.
Acne-fighting products can often make your skin dry and sensitive. It’s important to use plenty of moisturizer to compensate for this. Our Clear Cell Mattifying Moisturizer is a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that will help to reduce oil on the surface of the skin while providing essential hydration. We also love products with added benefits like antioxidants for a healthy glow and skin brighteners to reduce the redness of existing acne lesions. Our entire Clear Cell Collection is loaded with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antimicrobial ingredients to calm skin while it helps to stop acne at its source.
NOURISH YOUR FACE
Did you know that diet accounts for 80 percent of your skin’s health? Keep this in mind when planning your meals. Adding fresh fruit and vegetables that are rich in vitamin A will help normalize the production of skin cells. Try adding more mango, kale and broccoli to your diet. Healthy fats from salmon, walnuts and eggs will also help keep your skin nourished, helping prevent future breakouts.
COVER UP CAREFULLY
When choosing a foundation, it’s important to consider the ingredients. Oil-free liquid foundations are a great option for those prone to breakouts. Pick a foundation with skin-healing ingredients like our I Conceal Flawless Foundations, which include oxygenating properties, anti-aging peptides, stem cells and broad-spectrum SPF protection in a mineral base. Always apply your foundation with a pro-quality brush, like our No. 101 Flawless Foundation Brush, to prevent contamination from acne-causing bacteria and give you a perfectly airbrushed finish.
With our busy lives, it can be hard to find some peace and quiet, which can lead to stress. When we stress out, our cortisol hormone spike and along with it, oil production. Take time for yourself every season by going for a walk, having five minutes of silence in the car or taking a yoga class once a week.
