Tired of stubborn acne? Tried everything and it still won’t go away?
Opting to use skin care products is one way in which you can obtain flawless skin. There are a variety of skin care products that are designed to tackle acne and are specially formulated for the various skin types.
Choosing a skin care product should be more than just deciding based on the bigger brand name or how cheap or expensive it is. Consumers should pay more attention to the ingredients of these products. The ingredients are a defining factor in whether or not these products will work for you or not. Some of the most popular components of top skincare products in Malaysia are Biotin, Vitamin C, Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, SPF, Green Tea Extracts, ALA’s and CoQ-10 just to name a few.
Unfortunately, you can buy every skincare product on the bestseller list and that may still not be enough for you. This is because apart from using skin care products, you need to focus on other factors like your diet, exercise and lifestyle choices as well.
Did you know that the kind of food you choose to eat can affect your skin either positively or negatively? Dairy foods, trans fats, saturated fats and high-glycemic fats have all been proven to induce acne while legumes, whole grains and unprocessed fruits and vegetables have been proven to reduce inflammation and promote good skin health. This means you should try to consume less coffee, chips, greasy foods and sweets as they raise blood sugar and induce insulin production. You should instead consume more tuna, green tea, and oats. These foods are rich in Vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotene, and antioxidants which help to reduce wrinkles and sagging.
Water is also very important and it is recommended that you consume a substantial amount every day in order to rehydrate your skin, maintain your complexion and flush your body of toxins.
Even though exercising may cause you to sweat and clog your pores, did you know that it promotes circulation? By increasing the circulation of your blood flow, the skin cells are better nourished and waste products from cells are removed faster. Exercise also reduces stress which can induce acne.
A lifestyle choice such as choosing to smoke has been proven to deteriorate the health of your skin over time. Smoking causes premature aging, sagging and restricts blood flow thereby reducing the amount of oxygen and nutrients in skin cells. The consumption of alcohol depresses your immune system and weakens the skin’s ability to destroy bacteria. It also adversely affects liver functions, one of which is to regulate hormone levels. When your hormones are imbalanced, it can cause acne to flare up.
Acne is not permanent. By taking the correct precautions and following the above guidelines, your acne can be significantly controlled and you will be on your way to flawless skin.
