After testing a gazillion of different products and after a million visits to the dermatologist I still get ocasional breakouts, well not that ocassionally now that I am working at a veterinarian center. I am in constant contact with animals being licked and “caressed” so i’ve noticed a great amount of breakouts on my jaws (usually whe I get the kisses). I started reading about bacteria and realized that maybe it’s the bacteria that’s been breaking me out, I made a few changes to my lifestyle and my skin’s condition improved almost instantly. Here are my tips.
Did you that the majority os bacteria that goes to your face comes from you pillow case? Studies show that there are far more bacteria on a pillow case than on a public bathroom door handle. Change it every 2-3 days.
I get a lot of eruption on my cheeks from being constantly on the phone, picture this, your phone is frequently on your purse, on the cafe’s table, it falls to the floor etc and all that bacteria gets to you face in no time!! Wipe it with alcool at least once a day.
Desinfect your glasses
I notice I only have blackheads and whiteheads on the parts of my face where my (sun)glasses touch, like the cell phone desinfect them every day.
Wash your hands frequently
Did you know that the average person touches the face 3-4 times per minute which makes a total of 5.500 times daily?? Wash your hands frequently, speacially after touching animals, credit cards, keys, after you touch things on the floor, etc, and the most important, wash your hands before retouching your makeup!!!
Keep your makeup brushes neat and clean
Ladies please, keeping your makeup brushes in a glass container filled with salt/rice/flower petals is really pretty but not higyenic at all! Please consider all the dust that floats trough the air and gets caught on the stiffles of your brush and go straight to clog your pores. Wash your brushes frequently and keep them enclosed, and please don’t mix dirty brushes with the clean ones.
Use an antibacterial spray
I make my own, just pour some water on to a small spray bottle and mix 10-15 drops of pure tea tree oil and spray it over my face frequently and I mean FREQUENTLY!! It will kill all that nasty bacteria and make your complexion blemish free in no time. I even spray it on my pillow before bed.
