My Skin Is Very Sensitive, I Don’t Sweat, I Don’t Know What The Problem Is?
Women are automatically at a disadvantage when it comes to acne because every month your hormones fluctuate drastically and that causes the chemical balance of the skin to be thrown off.
1.) The very first thing when you wake up is to have a mug of hot water and add two tablespoons of pure lemon juice, give it half an hour before you eat or drink anything else. This will start a detox mechanism in your body which will effect even your skin.
2.) Clean your teeth/tongue and use mouthwash when you wake up and when you go to bed. A lot of people notice worse breakouts around their mouth and chin and often the culprit is night time drooling. By cleaning your teeth and mouth thoroughly you are greatly reducing the number of bacteria in the mouth and throat which means there is less to be spread if any unconscious drooling does occur.
3.) Once you’ve cleaned your teeth the next step is to wash your face with a mild, plain antibacterial soap. Do not scrub it, just foam the soap across the surface and splash it off then pat it dry. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they scrub at their skin to remove the dead layers but skin will naturally come away when it’s ready and tearing at it to get rid of it causes infection to get into the pores which in turn causes more acne.
Follow this with a light moisturizer. From my personal experience (sensitive skin too) I find that my skin doesn’t like creams and lotions so I recommend using a gel like aloe vera and just brush a thin layer over the surface, massaging it lightly in with your fingertips until it’s dry. Everyone has a different preference for moisturizer and you’ll find one that you like but I do recommend a gel base.
Repeat 2 and 3 just before you go to sleep.
4.) If you have long hair then tie it back at night so it isn’t falling across your face. Oily hair does not help acne-prone skin.
I also recommend eating Garlic. Garlic is a natural antibiotic and antiseptic, it contains about every vitamin and mineral the body needs and the effect it has on minor infections (like acne) is incredible. It will kick your immune system into high gear making it difficult for bacteria to colonize beneath the skin which will automatically slow your breakouts.
Garlic doesn’t have the nicest of tastes but if you can get into the habit of eating a clove a day then the difference will be astonishing. Think of it like taking your natural pill a day, you don’t do it for the pleasure but out of necessity.
The easiest and quickest way is to crush it in a press and mix it with some butter, then just use it on toasted bread like garlic butter.
Some people just can’t do it so fair enough but I do recommend it, not only for your acne but for your overall health. There are also garlic capsules that you do just swallow like a pill so you won’t have to taste it, it’s not quite as effective but it will still help.
