The Do’s & Don’ts of Maintaining Clear Skin, Honolulu, Hawaii

While skin care products and facials can help you achieve a flawless complexion, you can also take a few simple steps in your everyday life. Follow these do’s and don’ts to maintain blemish-free skin.

Do:

Wash your face before bed.

No matter which skin care products you use, your daily routine should include washing your face before bed. Sleeping in makeup or allowing the dirt built up from your day to remain on your face overnight can leave your skin feeling greasy and trigger breakouts. Wash your face before bed and again when you wake up, but no more than that. Overwashing can strip the natural oils that protect your skin from external contaminants.

Choose products carefully.

Avoid scrubs and skin care products with harsh chemicals, such as alcohol, which will dry out and irritate your face. Also, skip products with added fragrances or artificial colors, as these can clog pores. Instead, wash your face with lukewarm water and products that contain botanicals and natural vitamins. Exfoliate using gentle circular motions as opposed to scrubbing harshly.

Don’t:

Spend too much time in the sun.

skin care productsThe sun’s UV rays can damage your skin, leading to increased cancer risk, spots, and wrinkles. Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and protective clothing or headgear to avoid excess sun exposure when going outside for more than half an hour.

Touch your face.

Your hands can accumulate bacteria and excess oil throughout the day. Touching your face will transfer these agents, which can generate acne breakouts or inflammation. Keep your hands clean and away from your face as much as possible. Also, resist the temptation to pop pimples. Doing so irritates your skin and raises the likelihood of scarring.
