Self-Care Sunday: Blemish Tips From Team Tata
We hear you loud and clear. Breakouts are a pain and so many of us experience them. We asked some of our team members at Tata Harper Skincare about their personal experiences with blemishes and what their favorite tips are for managing breakouts. Here are a few to give a try:
Eat your carrots
Carrots are particularly rich in antioxidants which help eliminate blemish causing toxins. They are also rich in Vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, which works against blemishes.
play with your food
Cut up a potato and apply to any area with an active breakout for about 5 minutes as a topical treatment. Potatoes have high levels of beneficial ingredients like sulfur, chloride, potassium, and phosphorus which are known to help with blemishes when applied topically.
wipe it away
Something we’re all guilty of? Not cleaning our cell phones. The amount of germs that live on your phone and get transferred to your face are a big breakout culprit, especially around your cheeks, jawline and chin. Avoid these blemishes by cleaning your phone with an antibacterial wipe daily.
pour yourself some green tea
take a breath
Practice some deep breathing and meditation exercises to reduce stress-induced cortisol, a cause of blemishes, in addition to making you feel blissful.
Mask and bath time
Brush it away
No time for angry skin
Manually exfoliate more gently and try cutting it down to once a week. Harsh and overly frequent scrubbing just makes any blemishes you have even angrier.
Don't pick and prod
Trying to squeeze your blemish away can not only cause blemish-causing bacteria to spread, but cause inflammation, and even scarring. Instead try using a gentle but effective topical treatment right on the blemish, leave it on, and let it do its work. We recommend our Spot Solution and a little patience even though we know it can be hard, you’ll be happier in the long run.
Want to take your spot treatment to the next level and reduce the swelling of your blemish? For spot treatment layer our Spot Solution over our Retinoic Nutrient Complex which is amazing for inflammation. Apply the Spot Solution over it with clean hands throughout the day.
