Holiday parties are on the horizon. However, the stress of the season may show up on your face with sudden breakouts.
Oh no! Don’t let spots crash the party! Keep breakouts at bay before your next party. With the help of a few products, you can ensure your complexion is fresh and clear all season long!
When pores are clear, you’re less likely to break out in spots. Deep clean your pores and restore your pH balance with a gel cleanser that removes dirt, excess oil and other impurities. CosMedix Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser does more than unclog pores and create an even skin tone. It also exfoliates with ingredients such as tea tree and soothing peppermint oil. Salicylic acid and L-lactic Acid activate cellular turnover, which prevents breakouts. For additional deep cleaning, use it as a mask. Simply apply it to your dry skin and leave it on for up to ten minutes, then rinse it off.
Follow up with Purity Solution, a deep cleansing oil that removes impurities and excess oil without removing moisture. The nutrient-dense solution features a conditioning blend of nourishing oils that reduce inflammation. Use it in the morning and in the evening as part of your regular cleansing routine.
To reduce the chances of breaking out, reduce the amount of bacteria that dwell in your pores. Apply a soothing clarifying treatment to remove debris from the pores and eliminate breakout-inducing bacteria. CosMedix Clear Clarifying Mask features salicylic acid and other natural ingredients to remove excess oil and bacteria and heal inflamed skin. What better way to relax at the end of a long day? Soothe your skin and reduce the chance of breakouts.
Well-moisturised skin is so smooth it glows. A lightweight “heavy water” spray, such as CosMedix Mystic Hydrating Treatment, includes a precursor to hyaluronic acid that instantly plumps. It soothes inflamed skin and offers antibacterial and anti-fungal benefits. Spritz it on your skin in the morning and use during the day (or before a party) to set or rehydrate mineral makeup.
Resist the urge to touch your chin, cheeks, forehead and other acne-prone areas. This can spread bacteria and irritate your pores. If a spot does appear, don’t pick at it or try to pop it, no matter how tempting. Picking your spots spreads bacteria and makes them look worse. Use the CosMedix Clear Clarifying Mask as an overnight spot treatment to dissolve the infection and help your skin heal.
Although wipes make it more convenient to remove makeup on-the-go, they’re the worst offenders for disrupting the delicate pH balance of the skin. An imbalanced pH can lead to bacterial growth, inflammation, and spots, regardless of your age. Instead, use a honeycomb mitt to remove makeup with water alone. American-made Supracor Spa facial mitt stimulates blood flow and is antibacterial. It’s a very cost-effective option for beginners. More advanced skin warriors may opt for a FOREO supersonic cleansing device. Made from soft silicone material, it’s gentle on the skin and is also anti-bacterial.
