We have three main tips to prevent congestion and breakouts:
- Supply your body with powerful clear skin nutrients, namely Vitamin Bs (particularly B5, B3, folic acid, biotin), Vitamin A, silicon, zinc and copper.
- Maintain a balanced lifestyle; Eat well (more fresh food, avoid processed foods, minimise dairy, wheat, sugar, and high GI foods), drink lots of water daily and find ways to reduce stress.
- Implement and stick to a soothing and healing natural skincare routine. Avoid using harsh ingredients on your skin, as most people see better long term results through a more natural approach. Harsh ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide can over dry the skin and cause long term skin problems. Avoid wearing heavy make-up if possible; a good tip is to double cleanse at the end of the day; cleanse once to melt away make-up and a second time to flush out the residue that has settled into your pores. Use a non-comedogenic, hydrating moisturiser daily, and a French green clay mask weekly to gently detoxifies and purifies the skin.
Adopting a nutritional approach to your skin and lifestyle should see your skin healthy and glowing in no time!
