Go vegan and avoid meat, dairy, and eggs. Hydrate, nourish, and detoxify your skin by consuming plenty of fruits and vegetables. Apply natural and cruelty-free makeup. Despite touting of skin care products, refrain from using anything on your face apart from water and coconut oil. Moisturize your face with coconut oil or deep cleanse with a coconut oil based scrub.
If you are like most people, you struggle with pimples and acne. (At least at some point in life everyone does!) But how can you get the clearest possible skin? I want to share with you my top tips on how I keep my skin clear.
I’m not one of those people who was just born with clear, perfect skin by any means. I started to have acne when I was about 9 years old! It was embarrassing because none of my friends or classmates had any yet. I didn’t know what to do, and I was a kid so I didn’t really pay much attention to the way I looked, and didn’t really care too much.
When I got older, I still struggled with pimples, and it seemed like I tried everything. I used many acne and pimple products, creams, toners, face washes etc. Even when I started to eat a little healthier, I still had the problem. It wasn’t that bad, but I always had at least a few pimples and never had truly clear skin.
5 Tips For A Clearer Skin
My skin dramatically improved with each of these tips I am about to share. Still my skin is not perfect nor will it ever be! I’m ok with that too. The most important thing is feeling healthy, doing your best to live and eat healthy and then it will show on the outside. Now for the tips!
1. Eliminate Animal Products – Meat, Dairy, And Eggs
If you’re reading this and you are vegan already, don’t worry I have other tips besides this. If you aren’t vegan yet, then I’m telling you, it really helps. Dairy is so terrible for your skin, and caused me to breakout a lot. I used to eat so much dairy as a kid it’s no wonder I got acne when I was 9.
2. Eat Foods Rich In Nutrients And Water
Eating more raw foods like fruit and veggies give your body (and your skin) nutrients, water, and antioxidants it needs to plump up your skin and clear out toxins. You are what you eat.
3. Wear Natural Makeup (If Any)
Of course it’s better to wear no makeup. But hey, I like switching up my face and the way I look too, and I know it’s just out of question to give up makeup completely. So instead, just buy more natural and cruelty-free products.
4. Limit Or Completely Avoid Skin Products
This was a tough one for me but, it’s the thing that made the most difference for me. I used so many face products and face scrubs, I was probably addicted. I brought multiple face scrubs and toners just for camping once. Just try not to use skin products for at least a month and see how it works for you. Just use water, or you can try tip number 5.
5. Only Use Coconut Oil Or Coconut Scrub
For moisturizer, use coconut oil. If your skin is more on the greasy side like mine, use a coconut oil based face scrub which you can make at home. So that’s it! There’s nothing really magical about it. It’s really simple to have nice, clear skin. You really don’t need fancy expensive products and special creams. Sometimes the “answer” to your problems are the most simple things.
