How to Get Rid of Acne for Smooth Skin
Use Sunscreen:Slather on the sunscreen. Wearing sunscreen is the single easiest way to look younger for life. Ninety percent of wrinkles are from sun exposure, it's so much easier to prevent the damage than it is to fix it afterwards. That means no slacking during winter months either, when rays are just as strong and can reflect off of buildings and sidewalks. Look for a formula that offers broad-spectrum protection to guard against UVA rays (the ones that cause premature aging) and UVB rays (one of the main causes of skin cancer). Try Philosophy Shelter Broad Spectrum Sunscreen in SPF30.
Clean your makeup tools:Clean your makeup tools specially brushes and sponges. A British study found that 72% of women never wash their brushes or sponges, even though they harbor dirt and bacteria which can cause breakouts. "You should wash loose powder brushes every two to three weeks, and those used to apply foundation once a week," says Jessica Wu, an LA-based dermatologist and author of Feed Your Face.
Mix a couple of drops of gentle facial cleanser or shampoo and lukewarm water in a cup, swish your brushes around, rinse with lukewarm water, pat dry, and lay flat to air dry.
