Today I am going to be showing you how to avoid worsening the skin and show you some of what I believe are the best ways to vanish pesky spots.
1.) Steam your face with Tee Tree oil.
Boil a kettle full of water and then pour the water into a large heatproof bowl, the drop in your tee tree oil. I reccommend no more than five to six drops of oil, using too much can irritate your eyes, trust me iv'e been there before. Tee Tree oil is very strong and should not be used in hogh doses. After doing this you should then place your face over the bowl with a towel covering your head. This is to stop the steam from going anywhere other than your face, basically intensifying the steaming.
Once you have done this the hot steam will open up your pours. The Tee Tree oil, which is antibacterail, anti inflammotory and anti microbal which is in the steam will then clean out the pours including the blocked ones (spots).
If you already have acne scars then don't fear because Tee Tree oil has been known to reduce the appearance of acne scars too!
From my own personal experience I can say that a good old face steam every now and then makes my face look and feel cleaner, I also notice that I look much more awake after a Tee Tree face steam. Now i'm not saying it's going to cure all of your skincare issues, however it's a good and easy way to start.
2) Drink plenty of water.
Be aware that drinking more water will not control the amount of oil being produced by your skin. So if you have oily skin in general then this may not be the best remedy, however keep this one in mind because water helps your health in pretty much every aspect possible and hydration is very important.
If you really want this to work then it's also good to avoid things that will dehydrate you such as, caffeiene, alcohol and smoking.
3) Choose your daily moistuizer wisely.
Many people that have acne but don't seek help or advice are actually just doing the wrong skincar regime, in my opinion the most cautios thing that people with acne prone skin need to look out for is the type of moisturizer they're using.
Often good moisturizers to use have "oil control", from my personal experience when I am trying to control spots I will use a much lighter thinner moisterizer. This is so my skin is still able to breathe and is not being smothered because if you do this to a spot it will only make it worse.
I personally reccommend using the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Moisturizer, this is an oil free moisturizer and feels fresh and cool to put on. You can buy it for only £5 from Superdrug.
