Small Ways To Help Keep Your Skin Clear

For a big chunk of my twenties and late teens I had bad skin, it wasn't a pleasant experience. It knocked my confidence to the lowest it's ever been and I didn't help matters, I piled on skin care that wasn't suited to me and it made the situation a lot worse than it needed to be. Over the past few years, I've learnt a lot of about skin and by no means am I an expert, but here are a few small things that help my complexion stay clear. 

  • Changing my pillowcases regularly. 
  • A simple and consistent routine, 10+ products twice a day is far too much. 
  • Keeping my hands away from my face. 
  • Washing my makeup brushes on a weekly basis.
  • Listened to my skin, finding out what works and what doesn't. 
  • Having a reasonably good diet, I can always tell when I've been eating rubbish as it comes out in my complexion. 
  • Always removing my makeup and cleansing my skin properly before I go to bed. 
  • Upping my water intake. 
  • Paid attention to what contraception I was using, an icky subject but you wouldn't believe how a big a part this plays in our skin. 
  • Stopped exfoliating so much. 
  • Introduced a deep clarifying mask into my routine. 
  • Learned about my skin type, Sali Hughes - Pretty Honest makes this so easy. 
  • Having makeup free days on a regular basis. 

Do you have any tips for keeping your skin clear?
