Do you ever have one of those days where your skin just acts out for no reason? Like, why is this happening? Skin impurities will come and go, but if they overstay their welcome it can be really irritating. If you want them to be gone, and stay gone, then check out what to do if you’re craving long-lasting healthy skin.
Pimples are one the most common skin problems. Thanks a lot, puberty. While pimples will tend to pop up every now and then, there are plenty of ways you can keep them away for longer. First of all, if a pimple appears try not to squeeze it. If you do, it may take longer for it to heal. Secondly, there are plenty quick fix methods to get rid of pimples without squeezing. Lemon juice is useful due to its vitamin C and antibacterial properties. Use a dab of lemon juice on your pimples before you go to bed so that it helps clear your skin overnight. Using a facial cleanser daily may also help with clearing away toxins that may cause pimples.
Acne, like pimples, is common for those with oily skin but can be even more of a problem to deal with. Acne differs in appearance and severity. If it becomes a major issue, then pop into your local doctor to get the best treatment. However, there are some things you can try at home to reduce the appearance of acne without leaving scars. Any product with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid can help kill the bacteria that causes acne. Products with natural ingredients can also help. Our Coffee Buff Coffee Scrub includes macadamia oil, which helps level out sebum production that can cause acne. Face masks that include Natural Moisturizing Factor can help with that too.
Not only is eczema noticeable due to its redness, but it can be super irritating and itchy too. Products that include coconut oil such as our Coco Luxe Coffee Scrub can help treat eczema by soothing irritabilities that may cause itchy red skin.
