Skin care to chase away your facial nightmares

Most teenagers, as well as some adults, suffer from acne and irritated, red skin. Because of this, they buy unnecessary skin products throughout the majority of their life. However, the actual solution can be a few simple changes to their daily routines.

According to Glamor.com and Elle.com, you should massage a moisturizer into your skin daily. Do be picky about your moisturizer because certain products can cause your skin to break out or become irritated.

Multiple sites recommend the use of sunscreen, but one goes as far as to say you should use the product even while you sleep. The site says to wear it at night because it will prevent stretchmarks and scars from becoming darker.

Sleep seems to help with most medical-related problems, including this one. Having a good night's sleep can prevent breakouts and stray pimples from popping up, as well as reduce the size of your under eye bags.

Last but definitely not least is exfoliating. Exfoliating your skin daily helps reduce acne and acne scars by unclogging your pores. According to Bellatory.com, "For facial skin, an exfoliating soap, face wash or cleanser that is appropriate for specific types of skin; oily, dry or combination, must be used."
