Check out some tricks that can help you get clearer skin within a short period.
1. Always Wash Your Face Before Bedtime
Why go to bed at night without washing your face? if you do this, you’d be harboring a lot of germs and bacteria on your face. And this means you’d be more prone to having breakouts than people who wash their faces before bedtime.
If you wash your face, you’d be unclogging pores and dissolving any residue that is trying to build up. Excess oil is also removed during washing.
There are indications that washing the face does not only fight acne, it will also keep the skin younger. If you find yourself always lazy to wash, consider buying face wipes, this is particularly good for people who wear makeup.
2. Gently Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliation means removing from the surface. There are good skin care products like scrubs with granular substances that can be used to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin from the surface and exposes the fresh skin that is underneath. If you have never exfoliated, I think you should give it a shot.
There are face scrubs specifically built for face use and you can use this with an exfoliating face brush.
3. Try Toothpaste
I’m sure you are surprised about my mention of Toothpaste. This has been used to treat spots on the skin and it is proven to be very effective in making the skin clearer. Toothpaste may be uncomfortable at the instance of rubbing it on the affected areas of the skin but it dries up blemishes.
It is advisable that you go for non-gel toothpaste. Apply before bedtime and wash it off when you are up in the morning. Blemishes might not go away completely when this is done but you’d notice a shrink.
3. Reap The Benefits Of Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is one of the natural homemade remedies for all types of skin diseases. The gel can be extracted from the plant and applied to the fact. It will be itchy at first, but you can get used to it.
Aloe Vera particularly has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that make it very effective for clearing up pimples and scars of acne.

Oatmeal is beneficial for weight loss without a doubt, it can also double as a skincare product if used to mask the face. Any product that is described as a non-pore clog can be effective for clearing the skin of blemishes.
Prepare oatmeal like you want to consume it, allow it to cool, and then apply on the face and leave for up to 15 minutes. Rise with clean and warm water.
6. Apply The Right Moisturizer
Like I’ve always told my folks, know your skin type otherwise you’d be using cosmetic products amiss. There are specific moisturizers for oily skin and others for dry skin – if you use the right one, you will have better skin.
7. Steam Your Skin
Steaming the skin opens and clears out pores from the surface of the skin. Boil water, pour in a container, and then allow the steam to hit your face. Might not be comfortable but your skin will turn tender and appear better.
8. Avoid Pick Or Pop
It is quite normal to be worried about the pimples on your face but you should, by all means, avoid picking or popping. By doing so, you are likely adding gems to your face and also covering pores. According to allure, picking and popping induce scars and inflammations.
You will likely cause more acne to the face via picking and popping.
