7 STEPS TO CLEAR YOUR SKIN FROM ACNE - PART 1
1. Finding your trigger foods
We place this as number one as it is really the most crucial yet the most difficult information to uncover. Most of the time, our chronic acne issues are due to either something we are not doing correctly, or ate a bunch of stuff day after day, year after year, which created imbalance to our body.
We are not pinpointing any specific diet, but there has also been several cases where clients became acne prone after turning vegan. So meat is not always to be blamed. There are also cases where client gets acne after trying out the keto diet. There are also instances where their acne actually clears up after trying a new diet.
Identify what new patterns of food from this new diet It would be something we don't usually consume, but started consuming in large amounts now.
For some it could be tofu - yes soy. For others, it could be a variety from meats, dairy, and many more. The trigger food differs from one person to another.
So, be aware of what you've been eating.
2. Find your trigger habit
One of my very first client had extremely oily acne prone skin. The client had oily skin since teens, and 30 years later, he was still experiencing extreme oily skin condition - which most people at his age group has dry skin.
It turns out that he had been having this bad habit of washing his face due to having oily skin as a teenager. He started this habit of washing his face with highly foaming cleansing products as he thought having that tight squeaky clean skin is "normal" and how it should be if he weren't so oily. And this habit went on many years later, even ten and twenty thirty years later. He washed approximately 6 times a day or maybe even more sometimes.
It is obvious that this bad habit had created a new problem. Over-cleansing and over-stripping of his skin had created an imbalance in his sebum production which in turn caused him to be even oilier than before.
Treat your skin as a canvas and you always want to start it with a shiny new one every morning before you start applying or accumulating more dirt and grimes throughout the day.
3. Find your trigger product
Have you ever had an experience where you breakout after using certain products?
When your skin breaks out, always go back to the basic. Use that trustee cleanser and trustee one or two product that you know works for you. Products could also be a new make up, sunblock or it could really be any number of products.
Sometimes it could even be the array of product combination. When used alone they are okay, but once you layer, it seems to be causing problems for your skin. Take note of it and do more trial errors to confirm.
4. Not drinking enough water
As silly as this sounds, so many skin care issues that started from not drinking enough water.
Our body is made up of 70-85% water, but how many of us actually drink enough? Water is used to sustain life. It is also used as a transport and as a way to remove toxins from our body. We need water to remove toxins from our body through perspiration and urination. How often do we get so busy that we forget to drink water, then realize hours later that we are so thirsty and take note of our urine color as well.
The lesser you drink, the more your body will try to retain water. You can see water retention from having bigger eye bags (if it appears on the face), or it could also appear anywhere else in your body, such as hands, feet, stomach etc.
If you feel bloated from drinking, it's most likely that you are not drinking enough, and so when you drink that bit of water, your body holds on to it as it needs the water to sustain life in your body. Keep going, and your body will release the water and you should feel normal after maybe around 5-7 days if you keep up the amount. In fact if you've tried, you will even at day 3-4 feel so thirsty like you've never felt in your life (while you are actually drinking more than before).
Not drinking enough also usually shows on the skin as dehydration, and to some people, it shows as clogged pores. Water is not the only cause of this, but it most certainly makes it worse.
