Use Vitamin C skincare products

Vitamin C skincare products are great for lightening acne scars and hyperpigmentation. It also stops new dark spots from appearing. I find Vitamin C serums great to use. They have helped clear my acne scars and I still implement Vitamin C products into my daily skincare routine. My current favourite is this Viola Skin Anti-Ageing Vitamin C Serum.

 

 

 

Exfoliate your skin weekly

Exfoliating your skin every week is a great way to improve your facial skin and get rid of acne scars if any. Getting rid of dead skin cell with a facial brush is a quick and effective way of exfoliating today. I use my exfoliating facial brush once a week and it leaves my skin looking smooth and supple. Exfoliating the skin, scar will reveal the smoother skin beneath. If you are battling with acne, you should try this Magnitone London First Step Vibra Sonic Compact Face Cleansing Brush below. 

 

 

 

Laser Treatment

If you are battling with serious acne scars, laser acne scar removal treatment may be the best solution for you. There are now ways to reduce the appearance of acne scars thanks to the advancement in technology. I would recommend this for extreme cases only. If you are dealing with mild acne scars, you can easily get rid of them with the right skincare routine.

Use Sunscreen

This is a no brainer but still worth a mention. You should apply sunscreen to protect your skin; use a minimum of SPF 30. This will also help you get rid of the acne scars gradually and protect your skin from more damage.

 

Stop picking the face

No matter how tempting it is to pick your face when you have acne, try not to! Picking your face will only lead to more acne scars that may take years to go away.

 

Cleanse the face

Cleansing your face is important to ensure your skin stays clean and healthy. Sleeping with makeup on is the last thing your skin needs, especially when you are trying to get rid of acne scars. It is also important to use the right cleanser and the right amount of cleanser – the size of a water bottle lid.

 

There are many home remedies for getting rid of acne scars like the use of Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, Lemon Juice, Baking Soda, and more. These are based on many different experiences and worth trying if the tried and tested methods don’t work for you.

Are you battling with acne scars?

Why I take daily showers and moisturise my skin everyday

Growing up, taking daily showers and moisturising was the norm. I didn’t know of any other way to keep clean. Later in life, I found out so many other people don’t take daily showers and do not moisturise everyday, and I was like what? I am now used to the fact that not everyone has daily showers. Many people think their skin is more healthy if they skip a shower a day or 2. I disagree with that. No shower means they have no reason to moisturise (their opinion). Some do shower more regularly but see no reason why they should moisturise their skin afterwards. I disagree.

Why I take daily showers

I can’t imagine not taking daily showers. Even when I feel ill, I feel instantly better after a shower/bath. Water has the power like that. It could just be my mindset and my upbringing that has me set in my ways. But I can’t imagine deliberately having showers only a couple of days a week. I think I  will feel very dirty.

The whole idea of daily showers drying out the skin is a myth as far as I know. My skin looks great for a 30 something year old mum of 2. As long as the shower isn’t too warm, and you are not in there for ages, your skin will be fine. I always use natural soaps/bodywash , so nothing too harsh on my skin. And I don’t scrub my skin too hard. Gentle scrubbing with mild bodywash/soap and not too warm shower works great for my skin and my mental health. Also, moisturising your skin immediately after having a shower would help replenish any lost moisture. More on that below.

 

Why I moisturise my skin everyday

Using the right skincare products for your skin type is also very important. I always make sure I have the right skincare products stocked in my bathroom cabinet for my daily routine. As a beauty blogger, I come across all sorts of skincare/beauty products every week, and I always restock products that work great on my skin. It is very important to moisturise your skin everyday. It keeps your skin hydrated and looking supple. The moisturiser also helps your skin regain any lost moisture from showering.

I always apply my moisturiser immediately after showering. That way my skin can soak in all the goodness.

I know my skincare routine won’t work for everyone but it works great for me. The thought of deliberating skipping daily showers and moisturising makes me itch 😊

DO start early

It takes time for skincare products and skin treatments to work their magic. So the earlier you start working on your skincare the better. It’s better to take the safe approach and give your skincare products the time they need to improve your skin.

 

DON’T try out a skincare treatment without the help of an expert

It’s tempting to think that you can DIY your way through perfect skin in time for your wedding. Although, I’m not saying it’s not possible to make use of home remedies for great skin, it’s only wise to consult an expert before you start applying homemade skincare treatment on your skin.

Just like other chemical-based skincare products, your skin may react to them differently from others. And taking into consideration that your skin needs to look flawless on your wedding day, not consulting an expert is too much of a risk to take.

DO nourish your skin from the inside

Many women are so focused on the creams and serums to apply on their face that they forget that the skin also reacts to how well it’s being fed on the inside. Let’s face it, topical skincare treatments is only just one way of ensuring beautiful skin. So as you’re working on have perfect skin, make sure you don’t forget to tackle it from the inside.

 

DON’T use a new facial treatment one month before the wedding

Everyone’s skin works differently. No matter how highly praised or recommended that facial treatment is, stay away. You can never tell for certain that same treatment will work well on your skin. Unless your dermatologist is 100 percent sure that your skin won’t freak out when you apply the new facial, it’s better to not take any chances. You wouldn’t like to end up with a crazy reaction on the big day, would you?

 

DO remember that one blemish is not the end of the world

You know those moments when you go to bed with clear skin only for you to wake up the next morning with a huge pimple on your nose? Yes, we’ve all been there. Even with all the right products, proper skincare routine and expert advice, no one can guarantee for certain how your skin will look the next day.

 

So if you see a blemish on your wedding day, just know that it’s not the end of the world. Thank Heavens for makeup artists. Skilled makeup artists know exactly how to cover blemishes that no one will ever know the blemish existed.
