Tips for Acne free complexion

Tips for a clear skin

  • ·      Avoid high calorie/hyperglycemic food
  • ·      Wash your face with non-alkaline cleanser thrice a day.   Soaps containing salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide work well for mild acne.
  • ·      Apply anti-bacterial cream after washing the area everyday at bedtime.  Benzoyl-peroxide based creams can also help reduce acne, but can cause skin irritation in some.
  • ·      Never poke or pop the pimples or comedowns.  It only increases inflammation and leaves scars.
  • ·      Consult your dermatologist and use products designed for acne prone skin.

Tips to cope with stress.

Whenever you experience physical discomfort, emotional pain or a fidgety mind, ask yourself what makes you feel this way? It is stress. There are three ways to cope with stress

Always tell truth. Not telling the truth induces stress. The stress is due to the energy required to tell a lie. The fear of being caught for telling a lie. The need to remember the lie. The fear of being exposed by someone.

Low self regard makes one tensed. The concern of being ignored or being found incompetent also creates tension. Failure to understand self-responsibility leads to stress.

Hence it is always recommended to be truthful, understand and realize your responsibility. A better self-regard helps to understand and respect oneself.
