Natural Beauty Tips For Preventing Acne
I have been wanting to write more about
as it is something I am also adding to my natural products journey! For the past few months (and on and off for a few years) I have dived into natural skincare products to try and clear up my oily and blemish prone skin. I have heard that natural oils as a face moisturiser can help to cure oily skin as it acts as the natural sebum the skin produces (preventing the skin to become over oily).
Jojoba oil and Rosehip oil are the oils I have been using so far and they have been helping to clear my mild acne on the cheeks and chin area. Routine wise I have been using the amazing
regimen which really simplifies your skincare routine and teaches you the importance of leaving your face alone!
This is really hard to do if you are like me and are someone who applies makeup daily, picks any spots that pop up and generally touches your face all day.
Below are 5 new ways I have been incorporating natural skincare into my beauty routine.
1. LEAVE YOUR FACE ALONE
I make a conscious effort to not touch my face
throughout the day, the only time you need to slightly touch your face is when cleansing and moisturising (which you should be doing twice a day). When you do touch your face it is very important (as you can imagine) to do so with clean hands. Blemishes and acne are caused by skin irritation and clogged pores and you want to prevent these as much as possible.
2. USE NATURAL OILS
Going down the natural beauty route means using new skincare products that include all natural ingredients! One of my recent favourites is, Rosehip
oil! This oil is so refreshing and I like to look for cleansers and
that include high levels of the oil as I know it has many benefits! Read

as it is sure to give your skin a boost during the dry winter months.
3. CHANGE YOUR HAIR ROUTINE
As a curly girl who has very thick and coarse curls, I find that I have to use a lot of hair products and thicker creams to moisturise and define my curls. In doing so the hair products usually touch my forehead and edges of my face, the ingredients in some of my hair products can be causing irritation and possibly clogging my pores. I now try to apply product very carefully around my edges and also wipe them very gently after.
Make-up is something I like to wear (and sometimes) have to wear as a blogger/influencer. You like to have flawless skin in photos and videos so I have been using heavier foundation as of lately,
, this is a cause of acne and clogged skin so I have had to cut back on the cake face and give my skin a break. There are ways around this! You will want to use BB creams or lighter (
) foundations and here is a
you want to avoid in your makeup products.
5. GO BARE
Less is more! Whenever you can simply wear no makeup at all, let your skin breathe and allow your pores to be free. I like to only apply Jojoba or Rosehip oil on my face during makeup-free days. I also recommend removing your makeup as soon as you get home (instead of just before sleeping) there is no need to have a cake face on when it isn't being utilised lol. I love to use Coconut oil for removing my heavy makeup, I simply gently massage it onto my face and then wipe away with a cotton pad.
So! Natural is the route I am taking to nourish and heal my skin from acne and dryness. I will be keeping up with you guys with all the products I am using and results from this new route!
