Exfoliate!

It’s important to always exfoliate once or twice a week. Dead skin cells contribute to the formation of acne, and a gentle chemical exfoliant (like Sloane Inc Active Cleansing Gel S2.3) is usually enough to bid them goodbye. For those looking for a more natural alternative, however, no need to fear. With just a few simple ingredients, you’ll be able to make your own organic masks to scrub away all that dead, flaky skin au naturel.

Clean Those Brushes!

Keep your makeup brushes, sponges, and pads clean, as leftover dead skin and oils can easily build up on these surfaces. Picking up a brush cleanser (like the JAPONESQUE Makeup Brush Cleanser) and spritzing it on your brushes after each use is quick and easy, with easily noticeable results. But once every week, it’s time for a deep cleaning sesh with warm water and baby shampoo.

Always Moisturize!

Many skin and beauty products contain ingredients that dry the skin, so make sure to use a moisturizer that minimizes dryness and skin peeling. Light and alcohol free products such as Sloane Inc Aloe Cucumber Calming Water S4.1 helps to minimize skin irritation. There are many different moisturizers made for dry, oily, or combination skin, and picking one that matches your skin quality will help prevent any outbreaks.

While it may be hard to believe, but something as simple as getting enough sleep is key to maintaining healthy skin. Most of the time, hormonal imbalances lead to increased sebum production, resulting in an unwanted outbreak of pimples. Your body will be able to balance certain hormone levels when you get the full 8 hours, and ward off those unsightly zits.
