1. Clean. Your. Face.
Cleansing your face daily (several times) ensures that all bacteria and dead skin cells are removed from your face. Make sure you use gentle cleansing products. Aggressive products, such as scrubs and alcohol products, provoke an increased production of sebum, which will only cause more pimples. Nomige's 2-step cleansing routine consists of a 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliating tonic that pampers the skin with gentle, thorough cleansing.
Due to an increased risk of bacteria, you can apply some lukewarm water or the exfoliating tonic during the day. This will make your skin breathe again. Read: less chance of pimples.
2. Wash your hands regularly
Your hands are a source of bacteria and as we touch our face more often, washing your hands (with soap!) is key. Also get a moisturizing hand cream in the house for when you get dry hands.
3. Choose a cotton or silk mask
Fortunately, there are already many variants of mouth masks, so choose a cotton or silk face mask. They are softer for your skin and are reusable. Pro tip: Change and wash you mask regularly, otherwise the bacteria will stay on it. Choose a fragrance-free detergent if you already have sensitive skin.
4. Avoid make up
Not only sweat and dead skin cells clog your pores. Make up is also a evildoer. That's why you should choose a colored day cream instead of a thick layer of foundation.
5. Try not to touch your face!
We know, it’s difficult not to squeeze the pimples. It can lead to scarring and even more acne breakouts.
