Declare war to acne with Avon, Clinique, Vichy, Garnier, Boots and Maybelline products

We all have those days when we woke up in the morning we look in the mirror and we discover a fresh new pimple. These situations don’t happened to me very often, but when they do they kind of kill my day. For these kind of problems and even for others acne problems more severe I found a strategy. Out there are products designed to help us defeat the acne problems, we just need to look for the good ones.

The other day I was reading a post about How to Treat Post-Acne Scarring and I decided to develop this idea and talk to you about all the products that I have tried concerning this problems. Let me know in your comments if you have any other ideas about products that can help us fight the acne and their scars and even those red spots or pimples.

Avon Solutions Plus Pure Pore - Fection Self - Foaming Cleanser

If we just keep some rules in mind and follow them we can diminish the apparition of pimples and win the war against acne. So here are some steps that helped me in those situations and I hope to be helpful for you too.

  • Don’t sleep with your makeup on! It’s essential that your skin is perfectly clean during the night. You can use a makeup remover product that also has antibacterial action, morning and evening.

My recommendation: Try the Solutions Plus Pure Pore – Fection Self – Foaming Cleanser from Avon ( 150 ml) with bamboos and bisabolol extracts. It’s an oil-free product that will give you a tingly clean feeling. Cleanses deep down to remove dirt and make-up, leaving skin feeling refreshed and energised.

  • Clean the pores! For this you will need a mask specially created to reduce and prevent the apparition of pimples and dark spots.

My recommendation: Use twice a week, Clinique Oil-Control Cleansing Mask (19,50 $ for 100 ml), the new acne solution. This clay-based mask will help heal your blemishes, prevent breakouts and also will keep your skin shine-free. This is a good mask to use even for those ladies who don’t have acne problems but have an oily skin like mine, because its medicated formula gives your skin a deep clean, unclog¬† pores and rid skin of excess oil. Anyway it’s a mask designed for all skin types so it can’t have undesirable effects on your skin. All the process takes me about 7 minutes, while I apply the mask evenly on my face ( avoiding the eye area), then I wait 5 minutes and after I rinse off thoroughly with warm water. My skin feels smoother and clearer after this. I also like it because it has an oil-free formula and it won’t irritate my skin.

Review: Clinique Turnaround – 15 Minute Facial mask

Few months ago I bought Super Defense cream from Clinique and I received also the Clinique Turnaroud 15 minute facial for free. I didn’t knew anything about this mask at that time but I wanted to try it out anyway. From the first usage I was impressed with the results, and I say this in the good way.

The texture was kind of sticky¬†and the cream color is light blue. After 15 minutes while the mask was on my face, I saw the difference. I was impressed by its anti-ageing results as I saw that fine lines were diminished. My skin was vibrant, had also a radiant look and it felt so soft and smooth. I couldn’t believe how after only few minutes the minor imperfections of the skin, as red spots or small signs from pimples were completely gone.

Parties, yes! Pimples…no.

Your skin can be “vapour” too after a lost night at the party. Don’t give up – see what really affects you and what can help you.

Skin suffers

Skin shines

+ You drink a lot of water and you use a face cream rich in antioxidants in order to help you reduce the fatigue effects.

+ You fix your makeup with a powder based on salicylic acid to be able to keep you away from the pimples and germs.

3 secrets that will make you look better over night

Complete your night ritual with some new maneuvers, and you will pick the results in the morning.

Use a deodorant

In the evening, the skin calm itself and becomes more dry; take advantage by applying a deodorant, which will penetrate deep into the sudoripare channels. It will keep blocking the sweat even the next day( even if you make shower). Try Dove Go fresh deodorants.

Get tanned in the…moon

The skin absorbs better the lotions during the night, like this the next day you will be uniformed tanned. The skin must be clean, exfoliated and hydrated. With half an hour before bed time ( so you don’t stain the lingerie) try the self tan body lotion Nivea Sun.

Summer make-up

Beauty book – pimples

Not all acne types have the same causes. If the sebum excess it’s to blame, then the pimples are just a matter of days. The ones who are really stubborn on staying, no matter what you’ll do, on your face is an other story. When the problems appear, the body produces neuropeptides which in small doses kill the bacterium guilty for pimples appearing. The same miraculous substances, in big doses, generated by the stress, do exactly the opposite, resulting in blocking pores and limiting the body capacity to remove the dead cells. Result? Pimples won’t disappear for months. Continue Reading

Beauty book – spots

You can’t help yourself to tear off your pimples even though you know that your face will be full with scars. The tearing of pimples becomes rapidly a tic. Lots of persons do this when they are stressed.

Psychical remedy : Get rid of the stress by making sport. Keep away the mirrors which makes you look chubby and put in your bathroom a light less intense. Exercise your mind to concentrate on relaxation, and focus all your energy for a more noble break than tearing off pimples, with the price of leaving irreparable signs on your face. Be gentle, everytime you touch your skin.

Cosmetic remedy: Cover those spots with a corrector makeup – so you won’t be tempted to tear them off. Lotions with green tea extract helps healing the signs. If you want to, ask your dermatologist about laser treatment.

Helpful products: Spot light skin tone perfector from Estee Lauder or Invisible Light from Avon.

Wonder foods for the skin

Count on them, to look and feel better!

For stubborn pimples… Sugar and starch amplified inflammation sensitivity. Keep away from sweets and farinaceous foods; eat fruits with low glucid content ( like sweet cherry) or complete cereals.

For external drying… Look for foods rich in fat acids omega 3 (nuts, salmon, soy) – improve hydration and will help you destress.

For avoiding scars… Apply lotions which contains green tea or sweet wood extracts in order to prevent appearing acne signs .

For irritated skin… Smash a peeled cucumber and apply it on your face. Wait a few minutes to make his effect.
