15 Beauty Secrets That Will Solve Your Skin Problems

5 things you should stop doing with your skin right away

1. Washing your face with soap

Soap dries your skin and deteriorates its protective layer if used regularly, which results in acne. You should also get rid of aggressive cleansers containing SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), choosing gentle foaming creams or cleansing lotions instead.

2. Using scrubs

4. Being overprotective of greasy and problem skin

4. Getting a suntan

5. Turning your fridge into a vanity bag

4 daily steps to perfect your skin

1. Cleansing

Pick any non-foamy cleanser such as milk, balm, or cleansing cream, or an aid that forms due to its properties and not upon interaction with water (foams without SLS). If you wear makeup, first remove it with a special remover, micellar water, or hydrophilic oil, and then wash your face.

 

2. Toning

3. Moisturizing

 

4. Sunscreen

A few extra tips for skin care

  • To fight dark spots, use cosmetics containing salicylic acid or simple oils — for example, olive oil. Apply an ample amount of it to your nose and other affected areas, and rub it energetically for a sufficient time before washing it off. The dark spots will either be gone or at least become lighter.
  • Congested skin issues are also solved by salicylic acid-based aids.
  • The best antibacterial skin care is benzoyl peroxide (like Desquam), which is also great for excess greasiness. Antibiotics work well too, but bacteria will quickly grow resistant to them.
  • Pitted acne scars and hyperpigmentation are best dealt with by acids and vitamin C. However, acids will not help you with deep scars left over from severe acne, so meet with your beautician and go to a beauty salon for peeling.
 One more important ingredient: aspirin

Aspirin can do wonders at healing irritated bikini line bumps. It contains salicylic acid that helps to exfoliate the top layer of skin and allows any trapped ingrown hairs to pierce through the skin. To create your aspirin paste crush 3-4 uncoated pills and mix with water until paste forms. Apply it as a mask on your face and allow it to dry. Rinse thoroughly. 

You can also use get rid of pimples with the help of this paste by leaving it on the problem areas for about 2 minutes and washing it off with soap and water.
