If you have a medicine cabinet full of cosmeceuticals but you are still experiencing breakouts on your face, you may be feeling frustrated and confused. The truth is there is much more to healthy, glowing skin than using the right cosmeceuticals. There are a few things that you are doing every day to unknowingly contribute to your breakouts. Making some simple changes can work wonders for your skin.
Choose Cosmeceuticals with Vitamin D
When you are looking for cosmeceuticals for every step of your skin care routine, try to find ones that are enhanced with Vitamin D. In many cases, skin outbreaks are caused by a Vitamin D deficiency. In addition to your skin care products, you can increase your Vitamin D intake by taking vitamins and eating a lot of dark, leafy greens, such as kale and spinach. You can also soak up Vitamin D by spending time in the sun but make sure that you are using proper sunscreen on all of your exposed skin.
Take a Moment to Clean Your Phone
Think about all of the places that you rest your cell phone during the day. It goes into your pocket, into your purse and face down on your desk. Not only that, but you are touching it all day with your hands. It should come as no surprise when you hold it up to your face to make a phone call, you are exposing your skin to an array of germs and bacteria. Taking a moment each day to sanitize the screen of your phone can make a huge difference in the frequency of breakouts you experience.
Break Your Caffeine Habit
Many of us need a healthy dose of caffeine just to get through the day but too much coffee may be contributing to too many breakouts. Caffeine upsets the pH balance in your skin, causing it to produce more oil and, therefore, break out more frequently. This is especially a problem if you are drinking coffee as opposed to other caffeinated drinks, since coffee has so much more caffeine in it than other options. In addition to cutting back on the caffeine, try to drink two glasses of water for each caffeinated drink you have to restore your body’s balance.
