Everyone has days where their skin looks less than 100%, so here are some easy solutions to common problems.
It’s totally normal to have a bad skin day once in a while, but there’s always something you can do about it.
Here are four really common problems and how you can make them better from Teen Vogue.
Is your skin looking really oily? It sounds a little crazy, but you should fight back with more oil! If you dry your skin out, it’ll react by producing ever more oil to try to balance things out. So try a face oil treatment to calm your skin down.
Or the opposite…is it really dry? Avoid really hot showers, extreme weather, and harsh cleansers. Gently exfoliate your skin a couple times a week, and make sure tomoisturize. Exfoliating means scrubbing your skin to remove dead skin cells, and there are tons of products out there – just look at your local drugstore.
Another common issue is big pores and blackheads. Deep cleansing and exfoliating is good, and remember to do it gently.
And finally, do you have scarring from acne? Again, exfoliate! Look for skin products that have stuff like lactic acid, phytic acid, or vitamin C, because they all help scars fade.
