There is nothing worse than waking up to notice spots and blackheads on your face. It can really get your day off to the wrong start! I have experienced this myself many times so I am more than happy to share my hints and tips to being spot free in no time.
As with any piece of advice, a good skincare routine is the key to maintaining healthy skin. All it takes is 4 simple and daily steps, to help ensure you can sleep easy without the worry of a shock in the morning.
Skincare Routine For Spots And Blackheads
1.CleansingThis is vital as cleansing removes dirt and oil build-up both on the surface of your skin and deeper in your pores. The cleanser I recommend is the Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel by REN. It not only does what it says on the tin but also refreshes and deeply cleans to the bet results. It's also great for sensitive skin too, meaning it won't cause irritation or further breakouts.
2.Spot TreatmentThe spot treatment is there to help fight the issue once it has occurred. Most spot creams and gels just need to be applied directly to the trouble 'spot' and left to absorb for around 10-15 minutes. A spot treatment which I have used and think is great is the Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Daytime Treatment. This is a gentle but very effective cream and can be used in small amounts.
3.SerumWhen it comes to serums, there are a wide range of available ingredients, so most of your selection process will come down to your specific needs. One of the most common ingredients is Vitamin C, as it helps your skin to repair. A great serum to use is another REN product, the Radiance Perfecting Serum. It's simple and definitely effective!
4.MoisturisingWhen choosing a moisturiser, look for key ingredients like Glycerin, and Shea Butter, which can help your skin to stay moisturised and not become damaged. The best time to apply a moisturiser is when the skin is still damp. After you have used your spot treatment, apply your serum and then immediately apply a layer of moisturiser to lock in the hydration. A great moisturiser to start with is the Sensitive Facial Moisturiser by Sukin. This is really good as it soothes the skin and is gentle whilst ensure the pores are secure from dirt.
