Make sure you are making use of these tips that are completely free to do and you can start them right now to help improve your skin.


  1. Use an ice cube before it erupts!

When you can feel a painful zit forming (usually right before the time of the month for women), grab an ice cube and gently rub it over the spot on-and-off for a minute. Don’t let it sit in one place or you can burn yourself (yes burning yourself with ice is a thing). This helps with exfoliation and brings down the inflammation, and in most cases the pimple will be gone the morning after. If the pimple has already formed the ice will still speed up the healing process!


  1. Don’t pick at your face.

If you think you are getting rid of your blemish, you’re just making it worse! Your chances of rupturing the follicle wall are high, this will trigger the area with inflammation that will result in destroying healthy tissue and leave a scar. Grab an ice cube, go in for medical extractions, and don’t pick!


  1. Pass up the table salt.

The iodine in salt is demolishing your face, buy some pink himalayan sea salt which is a much better alternative!


  1. Almond butter, not peanut butter.

Did you know peanut butter has a substance that mimics androgen hormones and makes your skin more oily? So those peanuts, peanut oil, and wheat germ have got to go!


  1. Drink more water.

It’s all about elimination. It flushes toxins from your body, helps with headaches, and prevents fluid retention. Water is good for everything- not only for your skin! Nothing works as well as drinking some good ol’ water. Divide your body weight in half and you should be drinking that in oz.


  1. Skip the fabric softener.

Dryer sheets are just calling out for rashes, redness and irritation with your skin. Any fabric softener leaves a waxy residue to cut down on the static but it’s highly comedogenic. So definitely don’t use it with your sheets or towels. Static or acne? Hmmm not a tough decision.


  1. No more cow’s milk.

Dairy is a huge problematic factor with people with acne, and cow’s milk is the worst! It is the cow’s salt lick that has been iodized, thecarrageenan as a common additive, the chemicals used in processing the milk, the hormones fed to the cows, or the additives used in making the cheese. Try one of the dairy alternatives, like almond, coconut, rice, hemp, or flax milk (as long as it’s carrageenan-free).


  1. Get more sleep.

Everyone says at least 7 hours every single night of uninterrupted sleep at least if not 9 hours. It’s different from one individual to another, but minimum is seven. If you think you do just fine with less you are fooling yourself. Lack of sleep definitely affects your skin. Your body and organs are resetting and getting the time to do what they need to do. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing.


  1. Reduce your stress.

I know this is hard for some of you but you need to find a way! Deep breathing. Meditation. Yoga. Weight lifting at the gym. Brisk Walking. Staying away from toxic people. You get the idea.


  1. Change your pillowcase and towels.

You shed dead skin cells every night, plus your hair probably has some build of dirt, oil, and whatever else you collected during the day. So changing your pillowcases and face towel every couple of days should be a must!
