Pimples Arggg uninvited guests..!! 😏

We all go through this annoying skin issue of dealing with pimples some or the other time. Some face severe ones and some are just do din k mehman (guests for couple of days).

While some pimples are caused due to hormonal changes, some are caused due to lack of hygiene. Some are caused due to stress and some are indications of health issues. So if home remedies doesn’t work, I would suggest to consult a good dermatologist.!

You might have heard that ‘prevention is better than cure’. How about finding the exact root cause of pimples we get and address them, in order to avoid pimples??

Now that you know the causes let me give you bunch of tips to avoid them. (You might have already figured this out but as a beauty blogger it’s my duty to consolidate and list the tip. know? ) 🤓

Hygiene: 

This is very important.

  • Clean your cellphones as they contain a lot of germs. When dirty screen comes in contact with skin, it causes breakouts.
  • Change pillow cases regularly. Transferred facial products, drool make them dirty and help germs grow. I know it sounds gross. So we need to change the cases regularly.
  • If you use applicator like makeup sponges, brushes make sure you clean them regularly and dry them properly. You don’t want to apply germs to your faces. Do you? 😁😁

Water:

If you browse through skin care videos online, everyone repeats the same thing that you need to drink a lot of water. Drinking water not keeps you hydrated, but also helps in flushing out toxins.

Junk Food:

I can’t say to sacrifice junk food completely. Because I am a junk food addict. But everything should be in moderation.
No bad habits please:🤫

Smoking kills. I know it sounds like a typical ad. But it’s the fact. It kills you and kills your skin. So please stop polluting air and your own self. pretty please..!!

Alcohol. This causes dehydration. Dehydration causes a lot of skin issues in return.

Go vegan:

By avoiding dairy products not just your skin will be thankful but also the innocent cow and her calf too.🐮

Stress:

Breath, breath and breath till the time you flush out stress through your nostrils. Stress is the root cause for n number of health issues. Like, seriously.

Products allergies:

I have seen girls trying products blindly. (Include me also in the list of ‘girls’). But not all product works for all types of skin. If you find the product breaking your skin, stop using it immediately. No matter how expensive the product is.

Hormonal:

This is where you need to consult a good dermatologist, to get good guidance to cure this skin issue.

Hope this helps you to shoo away those little enemies..!!🙅🏻‍♀️

Home Remedies for Open Pores

Hey beautiful,

What are open pores???

Skin is made of pores. They help in skin to breath. For most of the ladies,as they age, skin loses its elasticity thus making the pores on face bit huge and visible to n*ked eyes.

  • Sun exposure
  • Aging
