Sharing is caring!

Almost everyone dreams of beautiful skin. We are ready to invest a huge amount of effort, time, and money in achieving this dream, visit cosmetologists and plastic surgeons, try various procedures such as PRX-T33 chemical peeling, and buy expensive creams – just to achieve the ideal. But sometimes it turns out that in order for our skin to look good, it is enough just to take a few very simple steps.

Stop Scrubbing Hard

Often, in the struggle for beautifully clean skin, we go too far. We use aggressive cleansers, after which, as it seems to us, the skin really becomes clean, you can often hear the expression “already squeaks”. What does this tell us? When the entire protective layer is washed off the skin, it is overdried and begins to actively produce fat in order to recover. As a result, this leads to the early formation of wrinkles, acne, and inflammatory elements. A similar effect can be achieved with the excessively active use of scrubs. If you have dry, sensitive, or prone to inflammatory skin, scrubs are forbidden to you.

Various devices for mechanical cleansing affect the skin even more aggressively: abrasive sponges, and skin brushes, with which we ruthlessly rub our face.

All this leads to the formation of microdamage of the surface layers of the skin, as a result, it becomes rougher, and inflammatory elements appear on it.

To exfoliate dead cells, get rid of “black spots” and even out complexion, cleansers with acids are most effective. Ask your beautician to choose the best cleanser for your skin type.

Do Not Self-Medicate for Acne

No one is happy with pimples and “black dots” on the skin. Hands are reaching out to squeeze them out, and advertising of numerous products promises that one has only to buy this magic lotion/ointment/cream, and everything will pass in just 5 minutes. Unfortunately, if everything were so simple, people with problematic skin would not have met at all – where would they come from, if any pimple can be so easily and quickly eliminated?

Acne treatment should be carried out by a dermatologist or cosmetologist. The approach to treatment is always complex, and first of all, the doctor will recommend doing a biochemical blood test, an ultrasound of the abdominal cavity, suggest checking for the presence of parasites, and possibly referring an immunologist, gastroenterologist, gynecologist or endocrinologist for a consultation if there are indications for this. And only after problems with the gastrointestinal tract, the liver, the genitourinary system, and others are excluded, treatment can be prescribed.

The approach to acne treatment differs depending on the severity of the disease, the prevalence of the process, and the age and gender of the patient.

Since acne most often appears due to hormonal dysfunction, they are usually treated with hormonal contraceptives (only for girls) and retinoids (for both girls and men). All drugs are prescribed only after a comprehensive examination and under the constant supervision of a physician. The selection of contraceptives is carried out jointly by a gynecologist and a dermatologist, taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient’s body.

Retinoids are a synthetic analog of vitamin A, specifically designed to treat acne. Retinoids, in most cases, can achieve a stable remission for up to 5-6 years.

For all types of acne, local treatment is mandatory. The drug is selected depending on the severity of the manifestations and the nature of the rash.

In addition to the specific treatment of acne, the doctor will work to eliminate the root cause of the disease: this may be the appointment of drugs that normalize the function of the gastrointestinal tract, the treatment of parasitosis, the correct selection of cosmetics that will not have a comedogenic effect (does not clog pores), correction of the personal hygiene system.

Do Not Sunbathe

The sun is one of the most formidable enemies of our skin! Excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation leads to photoaging, hyperpigmentation, and thins and dries out the skin. The saddest thing is that damage accumulates gradually, and you can enjoy sunbathing for quite a long time before you notice at one far from the perfect moment that the quality of your skin has deteriorated sharply: many wrinkles have appeared, elasticity has been lost, ugly spots have appeared on it. Getting rid of the consequences of the abuse of sunlight is very, very difficult.

Protect your skin from the sun all year round! In summer, in the south, and in winter ski resorts, use a cream with a protection factor (SPF) of at least 50-60, and in the city – at least 20-30. And remember that UV protection is needed both in winter and on a cloudy day.

Stop Experimenting

Trying something new is always interesting. But not always experiments, especially in the field of beauty and health, lead to good results. The Internet and pages of magazines are full of various tips: smear your face with kefir, oatmeal, and strawberries, make onion hair masks (yes, grate onions and spread your hair: the effect is amazing!), crush aspirin tablets and grease with this heels, buy this “unique” cream with an incomprehensible composition on a Chinese site … We think we can not continue – everyone has met these tips many times. And for sure, every girl can tell a couple of funny or sad (depending on the consequences) stories about her cosmetic experiments.

At best, with such experiments, you will simply lose time and money, at worst, it will take a long and difficult time to treat damaged skin.

How Will that be Correct?

Nowadays, there are many proven, certified, reliable drugs and methods that will achieve the desired effect without risk to health. A cosmetologist will help you choose an effective and safe remedy for solving almost any skin problem.

Makeup Brushes and Sponges

All make-up products should be thoroughly cleaned regularly. Brushes and sponges are constantly in contact with our skin, they accumulate sebum, dust, and cosmetic residues – all this is a fertile environment for microbes. So be sure to wash all your brushes with detergent from time to time and dry them thoroughly. Sponges and sponges can be put in the microwave for a minute after washing for additional disinfection.


Pillows constantly interact with our faces, and it is important not to forget that as a result, a lot of things accumulate on pillowcases: all the same sebum, dust, and remnants of our face creams … Do not forget to regularly change pillowcases on pillows – at least once a week, if you have problem-free skin, and once every three days – if there are inflammatory elements on the skin. Pillowcases are best chosen from natural fabrics: cotton, linen, and silk.


In autumn and winter, it is often possible to notice that irritation and inflammation appear on the forehead and cheeks. This may be due to hats, scarves, and hoods that protect us from the cold. Of course, we don’t suggest going bareheaded in the cold, but be sure to keep an eye on how often you wash your hats and scarves. In addition, pay attention to the material of the hat – some materials can irritate the skin.

We hope our simple tips will help you take a step towards perfect skin!
