Banish Acne Once and For All

Acne sucks. Anyone who's suffered from regular and persistent breakouts can tell you just how much (hint: A LOT). The good news is there are ways to completely get rid of your acne, once and for all. Education, expertise and the right tools are all you need. The tools (products) listed herein are scientifically backed and developed by our very own Para-Medical Esthetician which have been proven to drastically improve how you feel and look in your own skin.

Para-Medical Esthetician and skin care educator Barbara Strickland knows, after 33 years of experience and working with clients all over the world, that regular acne doesn't just affect one's skin — it also has a major effect on one's self-esteem as well. 

Most of us don't need an esthetician or skin care expert to tell us how self-conscious a breakout can make us feel. It can be the difference between leaving the house feeling confident and wanting to hide inside all day. Plus, breakouts can make what would otherwise be fun and enjoyable moments feel overshadowed by insecurity.

Basically, acne can have a major effect on our lives, which is why getting it under control with actual scientifically proven products can make such a difference to our quality of life. If you've been frustrated with acne or persistent breakouts, here are 6 tips and 10 tried and true products that should seriously help.


TIP 1 - Keep Your Brushes Clean

Your makeup brushes may be the culprit of your recent breakout. Clean your brushes every other day with our gentle facial shampoo, laying them flat to dry. If you have oily skin you may want to wash them more frequently.

TIP 2 - Up Your Water Intake

Drinking water helps to flush out the toxins in your body, so boost your water intake and have a look at the foods you are eating. Remember, you should be having at least 8 large glasses of water every day. Minimise your intake of fizzy, sugary and high caffeinated drinks. Also, look at switching to herbal teas, especially green tea! Keep a food diary and see if you can pinpoint what food groups cause your skin to break out, for example, if you consume a lot of dairy and breakout, you could have a form of lactose intolerance, affecting your digestion.

TIP 3 - Do Not Eat Late at Night

Studies have shown that the body’s metabolism starts to slow down into the evening, preparing for the night's rest. Try to avoid eating late at night; especially right before bedtime as your body will not break down the food nor assimilate nutrients as effectively which leads to toxin build up. The body will also be focusing on digesting food rather than resting as you sleep therefore leading to feeling groggy and tired the following day. Your biggest meal of the day should be in the afternoon when your digestive fire is at it's strongest. Always eat your evening meal, at least three hours before bedtime.

TIP 4 - Clean Your Cell Phone

Breakouts on the cheeks can be caused by a number of things. Two most common are caused by the germs on your cell phone and your pillow case. If you sleep on the side of your face or use a mobile phone, the germs and dirt can be transferred and will clog your pores, causing breakouts. To prevent this, change your pillowcase at least once a week and wipe down your phone with an antibacterial wipe every few days.

TIP 5 - Prepare for Hormonal Changes

Many women break out by their chin and mouth around that time of the month. This area is related to your hormones, so any sudden changes or hormonal imbalances can cause breakouts here. These tend to appear a few days before your period and clear up once your period is over. It can be tempting to pick them but don’t! Chart your cycle on your calendar and several days prior to your start date begin to apply Fix Zit or Miracle Zit to this area in the evenings. This will help in preventing those pesky breakouts altogether.

TIP 6 - Chill Out

Breakouts on the neck, chest and back are commonly caused by stress. Practicing stress-relieving activities such as yoga, meditation and certain writing methods have been shown to control, de-stress and reduce breakouts in this area. So find a stress relieving activity and commit to at least 10-20 min twice per day.
