9 Ways to Get Clear Skin Fast!

get clear skin fast

Your problem skin is, well, becoming a serious problem. It continues to rear its ugly head and like a bad boyfriend; you’re probably ready to say goodbye for good!

The reality is, your troubled skin didn’t happen overnight, but, there is good news. There are steps you can take right now that will get you on the road to clear skin. I like to call it The Clear Skin Checklist!

  1. Cleanse your skin in the morning and before you go to bed.
  2. Skip the washcloth. It holds on to the dirt and bacteria from your face. If you must use one, grab a fresh, clean one every time.
  3. Moisturize. (Yes, even if you have oily skin!) Because when you don’t, your skin will panic and do it for you by over-producing oil that leads to clogged pores, and yes, more acne.
  4. NEVER Strip! (Your skin that is!) Alcohol and strong toners/astringents strip the skin of it’s good oil.
  5. Get on the natural skincare bandwagon. Why natural? Other products contain toxic chemicals that can irritate your skin further and delay healing.
  6. Change your pillowcase regularly (and not just when you change your sheets.) A clean pillowcase stops sweat and oil from transferring back on your face.
  7. Limit your sun and alcohol exposure. Both dehydrate the skin which puts it back into panic mode (remember #1?)
  8. Don’t just conceal it, heal it! When your skin breaks out, the best thing to do is to go without makeup, but sometimes, that’s not possible. Try covering it with natural mineral makeup. It is  packed full of Zinc Oxide and helps skin heal fast!
  9. Get Help! If you’ve tried everything you can think of and your skin still isn’t looking any better, it may be time to get the opinion of a Dermatologist. (You haven’t failed here. Sometimes acne is complicated. There is nothing wrong with getting a little help.)

You’re not alone. I know what it’s like. I’ve been where you are right now, in fact, acne and sensitive skin is why I do what I do; help women find their way to clear skin. It’s the reason I created KmS Mineral Essentials.

A Not So New Skin Game Changer

Most often we spend time talking about ingredients we need to avoid in our beauty products, we forget all about discussing the ones we do want.

The newest trend in natural skincare? It’s all about Rice Bran Oil. But, what exactly is this ingredient, and how does it benefit the skin?

Rice Bran Oil is oil extracted from the inner husk of rice. It’s Vitamin E and Antioxidant rich. and until now has been a long time anti-aging skincare secret of the Orient.

Anti-Aging Benefits

The Vitamin E contained in Rice Bran Oil protects the skin from free radicals that cause premature aging by regenerating skin cells, smoothing the skin thus minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

Sensitive Skin’s BFF

Rice Bran Oil is hypoallergenic unlike other vegetable oils, making it a dream ingredient for those with extremely sensitive skin.

At KmS Mineral Essentials, we’re excited to bring the benefits of Rice Bran Oil to the KmS Skin Essentials line with  new Vanilla Almond Cleansing Milk.

Recommended for normal, dry, sensitive and aging skin, Vanilla Almond Cleansing Milk has the following key benefit:

  • gently cleanses while nourishing the skin preventing dryness
  • creates the perfect moisture balance without leaving your skin oily
  • contains oatmeal to soothe irritated skin
  • contains anti-aging benefits of Rice Bran Oil and Vitamin E

If you’d like to sample this amazing new cleanser for yourself, free samples are available for a limited time. Simply send your request via email to beautifulskin@kmsmineralessentials.com.

The 1 Thing You Need Right Now

A painter knows he or she can’t create their masterpiece without a proper canvas. Can you imagine spending all those hours perfecting your work while painting on a paper plate or napkin? Better yet, what kind of finish do you think that piece would have if you used dirty brushes?

A flawless work of art can only look its best when painted on a sturdy, clean canvas.

THIS MAY SURPRISE YOU:

Think of your face as a canvas. You could spend a lot of money for the hottest makeup brand on the market, yet, it means nothing if your skin, which is the foundation for your makeup is not cared for. It’s time to take action with a skincare plan.

Just as the right action plan is key to a weight loss program, the same goes for creating a skincare routine. With that being said, you need to keep this in mind:

YOUR SKIN IS UNIQUE!

What may work for others may not work for you. You need to be sure you are using the products that meet the needs of your skin. Your skin is breaking out which can make finding the right products a challenge.

A TIP TO SAVE YOU TIME AND FRUSTRATION:

I challenge you to really consider natural skincare. Why? Because with all the products you have to choose from, the majority of skincare products contain toxic and unnecessary chemicals that can make your skin much worse. It’s just not worth it. Most natural products like KmS Skin Essentials is made from gentle, skin loving ingredients that soothe the skin, allowing it to heal more quickly.

HELP IS ON THE WAY

Do you need help figuring out what products would be best for  your skin? What if you could discuss your options with a beauty expert; someone to help pair you with the product(s) that fit your needs best? You are going to LOVE this!

5 Reasons Why Your Skincare Isn’t Working

skincare products

You did it. After putting it off for months, you finally bought  the skin care products you should have bought weeks ago.

You spent the big bucks this time because, after all, you get what you pay for, right?

Not so fast!

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending a lot of time and money on products that promise to deliver, but don’t.

So, what gives?

Today we’re going to cover the 5 reasons why your skincare isn’t working, And what you can do to finally find the products that do!

Reason #1 – You’re using the wrong products for your skin type

Cleansers, toners and moisturizers aren’t all the same. They are designed to handle the needs of each particular skin type.

Here’s an example: if you have dry skin, a moisturizer for oily skin won’t work for you because it doesn’t contain enough moisturizing ingredients needed to hydrate dry, parches skin. If you have normal skin, a cleanser for oily skin won’t work for you because it will strip your skin dry of all the good oils it needs to keep supple.

Reason #2- You’re not using a 3-step skin care system

You’ll need more than 1 product to take the very best care of your skin.

You need 3; a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Why? Because each of these products is designed to do something very specific to your skin.

Cleanser is of course designed to cleanse. Toner wipes away any leftover residue while restoring the skins pH level, preparing it for moisturizer. And of course moisturizer keeps your skin properly moisturized.

So, if your cleanser doesn’t make your skin feel moisturized, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re using the wrong one. It means you need to leave the moisturizing to your moisturizer.

Reason #3- Your products have expired

Yes, even your skincare has an expiration date. It should be posted somewhere on your bottle or jar. If you can’t find the date, pay attention to the consistency and smell of the product. If it doesn’t look or smell right, chances are it’s definitely expired

Reason #4- The quality isn’t there

What do you do if you’re using a cleanser, toner and moisturizer designed for your skin type, but it still doesn’t work as it should?

Could be you’re using poor quality products made of inexpensive or watered-down ingredients. This doesn’t mean you need to spend a bundle on skincare, however. There are plenty of products reasonably priced that do an incredible job taking care of your skin.

Reason #5- You’re not using as directed

Men aren’t the only ones that don’t ask for directions!

When was the last time you read the directions on your skincare labels? Think it doesn’t matter?

Oh, but it does!

Some products are super concentrated so a very little bit goes a long way. Using more product than what’s recommended can leave your skin too oily or overly-dry while using less than recommended deprives your skin of the very best condition it can be.
