Acne has a way of emerging when we absolutely cannot afford to have it emerge. Stress acne breakout is a common yet emergency skincare problem that needs to be looked at promptly. If you happen to be a bride-to-be and the stress acne has affected you as well, you can still fight back and keep it for ruining the most memorable day of your life.
Here are a few quick tips that will help reduce or even completely eradicate those nasty pimples:
Exfoliate and cleanse your skin
Exfoliation and cleansing is considered as a precautionary measure to not get acne in the first place but just because you’ve already had the pimples, doesn’t mean you should stop. Exfoliating and cleansing will help remove the dirt in your pores and stop any other pimple to pop out. It will also help limit the growth of the existing acne.
Natural DIY exfoliating ingredients include a mixture of extra virgin olive oil with sea salt or sugar (for sensitive skin).
Try face masks the night before
Face masks are excellent to reduce and limit acne propagation and applying a nourishing mask a day before your wedding will make your skin glow and reduce the redness of any acne present. Clay masks are popular choices to treat acne problems quickly but if you don’t have a commercial mask on hand, you can make a classic natural face mask combining honey with lemon or yogurt.
Use essential oils
Essential oils like tea tree oil, coconut, olive and almond oil are all great options to reduce the size of your pimples and make them almost non-existing overnight. In general, tea tree oils and olive oil works best to get rid of the redness of acne. Other nourishing ingredients that you can safely put on your face include Aloe Vera gel and egg whites.
Use green tea
Green tea is full of antioxidants and acne fighting properties; however, drinking green tea and obtaining flawless skin is a long-term process. To get rid of acne quickly, you can use the tea bags of your favorite green tea. Make your green tea as you normally would and take the tea bag out once it is soaked in boiling hot water. After it has cooled down, you can use it for acne spot reduction by gently applying it on the pimples.
