Five Steps to Say Bye-Bye to Pimples and Hello to Healthy, Clear, Radiant Skin

Promoted partner content from Miracles & More.

We all want clear skin. Yet, hormones, daily exposure to pollution, and the constant bombardment of other pore-clogging dirt, dead skin cells, and toxic aggressors can wreak havoc on your complexion and leave you with irritated skin and ugly breakouts.

But, don’t panic…

Clear, blemish-free skin is possible when you follow a simple plan to get your skin back on track.

#1 – Cleanse, but gently

When it comes to clear, gorgeous, radiant skin, cleansing is the most important step in your plan. However, not all cleansers are created equal.

If you’re using a harsh cleanser, along with the dirt that clogs your pores, you could also be stripping away the natural oils that keep your skin healthy. When this happens, you can end up with a rebound effect of too much oil production, irritated skin, and an increase in breakouts.

That’s why it’s important to choose a gentle, calming cleanser that will leave your complexion clear and even. Ingredients to look for in your cleanser include chamomile, white willow bark, and red clover for perfectly cleansed skin without drying or irritation.

#2 – Don’t pop your pimples

When a blemish pops up, it’s tempting to pick, pop, or poke at it to try to get rid of it more quickly. But, the truth is, this won’t get you the results you’re looking for.

Instead, it can lead to irritation, infection, and scarring.

So, when you get desperate to pop, control the urge and try applying a spot treatment, such as the Miracles & More Arctic Mineral Mud Mask to your blemish. It contains no fillers and works instantly to decongest your pores and pull out impurities so that your skin is left baby smooth, beautifully firm, and amazingly clear after just one application.

#3 – Exfoliate regularly

If you have blemish-prone skin, you might think that exfoliation isn’t for you and worry about irritation. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

Regular exfoliation is key to controlling acne and getting clear, luminous skin since dead skin cells are responsible for clogging pores which leads to breakouts as well as leaving your skin dull, flaky, and prematurely aged.

To keep your complexion blemish-free and glowing, go for a gentle face polish derived from sugar cane to clear away the dead skin cells and dirt that congest your pores. We love the Miracles & More Mint Exfoliating Face Polish, which combines the power of sugar cane with a soothing blend of apricot oils, lemon, apple, aloe vera, green tea, and seaweed to make it the perfect choice for even the most sensitive skin.

#4 – Don’t skip the toner

Using a toner morning and night is a must for any anti-acne skincare routine.

Toners take your cleansing to the next level and balance your skin’s natural pH, provide gentle exfoliation of dead skin cells, and soothe your complexion.

Ingredients we love include Japanese green tea, chamomile, aloe vera, grapefruit and cucumber seed extracts which work in synergy to leave skin toned, firmed, and beautifully clear.

#5 – Protect your skin

Exposure to UV rays from the sun don’t just accelerate skin aging, it can also lead to breakouts. That’s why daily sunscreen use is a must.

Choose a broad-spectrum, oil-free, non-comedogenic sunscreen to protect your skin from wrinkles, burn, and acne all in one product.

With these tips, you can kickstart your skincare routine into high gear and get the clear, radiant, absolutely flawless complexion you’ve been looking for.
