The good news is, there are actions we can take to minimise blemishes like acne and rashes, age spots and melasma caused by external factors. Blemish free, clear skin is very achievable! you would be surprised as to how easy and effortless it is to implement a few simple routines to get glowing complexion.
Below are a few tips to help you to clear and radiant skin. 😊
Wash your face twice a day
Keeping your face clean is one of the key factors to prevent blemishes. For people who have oily skin that are prone to breakouts, cleaning provides quick results. Washing your face morning and night is effective in preventing acne formation.
Use a natural cleanser
A lightweight, gentle cleanser that removes daily environmental pollutants and makeup is highly recommended. Cleansers made from all-natural ingredients that do not strip the skin of its natural nourishing oils are ideal for anyone who is serious about the health of their skin. Mei & Co. Hydrating Cleansing Milk contains active ingredients, Rosehip Oil and Aloe Vera that provide expert hydration and helps the skin to thrive and maintain its natural balance.
Keep your skin hydrated
Always apply serum and moisturiser to your skin after cleansing and toning. The role of moisturiser is to keep your skin hydrated, as dry skin can over produce sebum which can lead to breakouts.
Serum and Moisturisers made from natural ingredients are best for the skin as it penetrates the skin and acts as a shield for your skin to the outside world, you don't want harsh chemicals in the skin care products you use daily.
It is equally important to use moisturisers that are non-comedogenic. That is products that are formulated in such a way that they are not likely to cause pore blockages (comedones) and breakouts.
Our Mei & Co Vitamin C Serum includes Australian Kakadu Plum, which has the world’s highest levels of the Vitamin C. This silky serum deeply feeds and nourishes the skin. Australian Lavender and Organic Lemon Essential Oil add a brightening effect to the formula and spike the serum with a decadent scent.
For moisturiser, our Peptide Firming Cream uses Native Snowflower Extract which comes from the white flowers on the Tea Tree plant. This ingredient helps to reduce damage caused by the sun and other environmental factors. Hyaluronic Acid is used to help feed the skin and enhance its hydration.
Gentle exfoliation can help remove excess dead skin cells and promote blood circulation. Dead skin cells stay on your skin for too long can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. It will also make your skin appear dull and prematurely aged.
There are two ways to exfoliate:
Use an exfoliating cleanser to exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week to effectively remove dead skin cells and ensure your pores are clogged free. Mei & Co’s Exfoliating Vitamin Crystals promote glowing and healthy-looking skin. Simply mix a small quantity of the crystals into your favourite cleanser and apply to wet skin in a circular motion. The Vitamin C in the product is wonderful for brightening dull complexions, and the fruit-derived Malic Acid offers deep exfoliation. The ratio of crystals to cleanser can be altered to create a lighter or more intensive scrub!
2. Use a Konjac Sponge.
Konjac sponges have fibrous structure which gently exfoliates your skin and buff away dead cells and stimulates blood circulation to create smooth skin. The sponge cleanses whilst balancing the skin's pH levels with its natural alkalinity. It is hydrating and purifying, can be used with cleanser or just water. Konjac sponge is so gentle on your skin you can use it daily.
Use sun protection
Even hydrated and flawless skin can dry out when overexposed to the sun. Under heat, your skin’s sebaceous glands produce excessive sebum and can eventually form blemishes. The double whelming benefits of using sun protection is that it also prevents wrinkle formation and aging. 😊
Choose noncomedogenic cosmetic
Your makeup products should be skin-friendly, and do not clog your pores. Ensure your fingers or the application tools used to apply makeup are always clean to minimise the risk of skin infection.
If you happen to get blemishes on your face due to hormone changes, weather changes or food allergies, do not fear, many blemish spot removers are highly effective in treating blemishes. Acne, Blackheads and whiteheads can be treated easily. Mei & Co.
