Wondering how to get flawless skin in one week? You are not alone.
It's so unfair that some of us have to deal with bad skin. Luckily, as someone who used to suffer, I have come up with excellent techniques to banish those unwanted blemishes!
And you read it right- you'll see great results in only a week's time! It's not difficult to follow, and it's not too time consuming, either. So let's get started with the 6** steps to flawless skin in one week.**
And remember to follow these steps religiously if you want the best results possible!
1. Identify Problem Areas on Skin
For some of us, we only have certain areas on our skin that break out. If you identify these spots specifically, you may be able to treat them better. For example, if you tend to have more breakouts on your forehead, it might be due to dehydration. You may be able to solve your problems merely by drinking more water! Wouldn't that be great? What easier answer could there to be to the question, how to get flawless skin in one week?
Well, for some of us, that could be the case. However, for others, the problem might be only on one side of our face. Check the side you sleep on at night and see if it corresponds to the side of your face that needs some skin help. That might just be the problem, and you could try sleeping on your back instead.
If none of these seem to be the reason, just keep in mind the areas on your skin you feel need the most help and keep reading!
2. Know if Your Skin is Dry or Oily or a Mixture of Both
This is SO important to remember. The problem areas on your skin may need different treatments. Chances are, the place where you break out the most on your skin is oily. However, you may also notice some skin peeling in the same area. That means you have a mixture, and you can't treat it with one product alone.
3. Treat Different Parts of Your Skin Differently
If your forehead appears to be the oily part, treat it as such. And if your chin seems to have dry skin, treat it the way it needs to be treated, not the same as your forehead. The skin is a tricky thing, and it's difficult to know sometimes how to manage it when it has more than one problem.
4. Before You Treat Each Area Specifically...
There are two overall things you must do for clear skin. One is exfoliate, and the other is use an antibacterial product to kills germs and bacteria.
For exfoliation, you can use any product that works for your skin type. Exfoliators come with a variety of different uses. Some have lemon for skin brightening and the reduction of scars. Some have ginseng and vitamin C for healthy, plump skin. Others have aloe for sensitive skin. And they have products designed specifically for acne treatments, as well.
For antibacterial purposes, you'll want something with benzoyl peroxide. It ranges in percentages from 5-10 based on severity of your skin condition. Begin with 5% simply for the purpose of seeing how you react to it. Clindomycin is another antibacterial ingredient, but you need to get a prescription for this one. You should ask your dermatologist for it to really rid your skin of anything going on underneath the surface that you might not even see.
5. Now for the Specifics
After you've exfoliated your skin with the wash of your choice, you can concentrate on specific areas. Don't feel the need to use a moisturizer the second you start the process of getting rid of any bacteria on your face. Wait two to three days to see if your skin is less bumpy on the surface. That means the antibacterial is working because it's taking away all the impurities.
It is much easier to fix dry skin than acne. Remember that. Use your moisturizer sparingly in the beginning of this process and slowly add more as you see your skin beginning to heal.
For areas of many breakouts, apply more antibacterial. You can always apply aloe or ice if the skin begins to appear red.
6. Use a Scar Guard
After your skin has become 100% smooth (or flat and not bumpy) to the touch, you can begin to apply a scar guard to the areas where the acne used to be if there is still some discoloration. Remember that after you clear your face of acne, if it is prone to it, you will need to keep up the process.
You might not have to use an antibacterial anymore (although I would recommend at least twice a week). But you should keep exfoliating and using a moisturizer.
Follow these easy steps, and you'll have beautiful skin in no time!
