3 Easy Steps to Clearer Skin

I was 14 when I got my first pimple. It the size of a green pea, and it sat right on my right cheekbone. Being the weirdo I was, I decided to pop it.

WORST. DECISION. EVER.

Those suckers multiplied like crazy and before I knew it, my face looked like a cheese pizza. My face was full of pimples that wouldn’t go away. I was so embarrassed about it that I avoided being photographed at all cost. I didn’t feel like my usual pogi self at all. If you look through my family’s Christmas photos that year, you’ll notice I’m not there. I was literally a ghost.

Everyone gets acne, and while it may not be the worst thing you can have, it still sucks. I hated it, so I did something about it. If acne is holding you back from doing things you want to do, let’s do something about it. Here are my best tips to clearing up your acne:

  1. Drink lots of water!
    When my acne was at its worst, it was when I didn’t drink water. As much as I love those creamy frappuccinos from Starbucks, they don’t take care of your skin the way that water does. I know I drink enough water if my pee is more clear than yellow. (LOL) There are plenty of benefits to staying hydrated and clearer skin is just one of them.
  2. Find a skincare routine and be consistent!
    Make sure to use products that are meant for your face and not anywhere else. The skin on your face is more sensitive, which means you shouldn’t be using a body soap to wash it or body lotion to moisturize it. You only get one face so it’s important to take care of it.
    Use a cleanser to wash your face and always apply moisturizer after. If your skin is too dry, you could potentially break out even more. Get in the habit of washing your face in the morning and right before bed.
  3. Sleep!
    Your body needs to rest for many reasons, and your skin is one of them. Getting enough sleep will help keep your skin looking young and supple. This will also keep those baggy eyes away, which is a huge plus!

Those are my simple tips to getting clearer skin. Stick around because I will do a more in-depth post about the products I use and more. (also check out these “Neutrogena style” face washing pictures, LOL)

Remember dudes, everyone gets acne. No matter how awful you think it is, don’t let it get in the way of you enjoying yourself and getting in those family pictures. Having acne isn’t the end of the world, but if you hate it that much then take the steps to fix it.

Till next time pogi,
