5 simple steps to avoid breakouts

5 simple steps to avoid breakouts


If you’re prone to breakouts, it’s important to use a cleanser than helps prevent those nasty pimples instead of trying to treat them after the fact. Pick a cleanser with salicylic acid like our CLEAR CELL SALICYLIC GEL CLEANSER to gently exfoliate your skin and clear those pores out before a breakout has the chance to sneak in.


Taking care of our skin in the right ways can help maintain pH balance. Try using balancing products like IMAGE Skincare's ORMEDIC BALANCING ANTI-OXIDANT SERUM, a silky, ultra hydrating botanical serum infused with organic Japanese green tea, aloe vera and a copper-complex peptide. This stuff continuously balances your skin from within and restores its ideal moisture level, leaving your skin hydrated and glowing. It’s also important to eat the right foods. Munch on regularly alkalizing foods like leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, tomatoes, carrots, and soybeans.


Did you know that diet accounts for 80 percent of your skin’s health? Keep this in mind when planning your meals. Adding fresh fruit and vegetables that are rich in Vitamin A will help normalize the production of skin cells. Try adding more mango, kale and broccoli to your diet. Healthy fats from salmon, walnuts and eggs will also help keep your skin nourished, helping prevent future breakouts.


When choosing a foundation, it’s important to consider the ingredients. Oil-free liquid foundations are a great option for those prone to breakouts. Pick a foundation with skin-healing ingredients like our I CONCEAL FLAWLESS FOUNDATION, which include oxygenating properties, anti-aging peptides, stem cells and broad-spectrum SPF protection in a mineral base.


Our lives are busy, it can be hard to find some peace and quiet. It can be a stressful time with end of the year deadlines at work and party after party. When we stress out, our cortisol hormones spike and along with it, oil production. Take time for yourself every season by going for a walk, having five minutes of silence in the car or taking a yoga class once a week.
