Wash your face in the morning and at night

Temporarily removed
It's important to wash your face once when you wake up and before you go to bed to get all the dirt off your face.

Don't skip on sudsing

Wash your face for 30 to 45 secs with about a dime-sized amount of your face wash. This is about how long it takes to clear all the dirt and oils from your face.

Wash off ALL of your cleanser

Leftover cleanser can mean more dirt and oil on your face. Make sure to rinse with lukewarm water until your face doesn't feel slippery or soapy. Hot water can dry out your skin while cold water closes your pores.

Be gentle

Be gentle with your skin. You don't want to rub too hard, this can cause your skin to become red and irritated. If you are using your hands make sure they are clean before washing your face.

Suds your cleanser in your hands first

This can help activate the ingredients in your cleanser that way they can work more effectively when putting on your face.

Use a cleansing brush

Unfortunately when you clean your face with your hands you can't clean inside those tiny pores. Using an exfoliating brush can help get all the dirt inside those tiny pores. When you use it every day you will see a change.

Exfoliating can help get those dead layers of skin cells off your face to help give it a natural glow. Make sure to exfoliate after washing your face to have a clean canvas.

Clean your phone!

If you are seeing pimples where you hold your phone up to face then you need to clean your phone. Your phone picks up so much dirt and bacteria that can easily get transferred to your face. Wipe your phone with an anti-bacterial wipe often to get rid of those germs.

Stop touching your face

When your sitting in class with your hand to your cheek or chin this can be causing you to break out because your hand has so many germs on it from touching your phone, locker, etc. Putting your hands on your face can transfer all of those germs.

Change your pillowcase

Change your pillowcase every other day to help prevent breakouts. Dirt and sweat from your hair, hands and the products you use can build up over time. If you don't have another pillowcase then it's a good idea to wash it once a week.

Less is more

Using too many products can irritate your skin. Your skin is very sensitive and using more is not helping your skin.


Popping a pimple can cause infections which can make the situation worse. Instead, dab an acne treatment to the spot to help clear it. This can bring down the swelling until it disappears.

Wash your brushes

Make sure to wash your brushes and sponges regularly with a brush cleanser or baby shampoo. They can accumulate bacteria which can cause you to break out.

Be consistent

Being sporadic will not get you clear skin and there will not be any overnight miracles. It takes time for your skin to clear up but it will be worth the wait.

Get some sleep

I know we all want to stay up to binge-watch our favorite show but that's not healthy. Not sleeping enough can cause your hormones to change and raises your stress levels which can cause breakouts. You should be getting at least 8 hours of sleep per night.

Put on your SPF

Sunscreen is not just for summer. Your skin needs protection from the sun every day even when it's winter. There are sunscreens for every skin type. You need to find the one that's perfect for you. Look for a daily lightweight moisturizer with sunscreen in it to help prevent burns and future wrinkles.

Pat your skin dry

This seems like a very tiny thing to do but patting your skin dry instead of rubbing can help reduce redness and irritation.

Stay hydrated

Drinking water can help get rid of any toxins in your body. This can help give your skin a natural glow. It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of water per day. I like to fill up my 32 once water bottle 3 times a day.
