MONTHLY ARCHIVES: JUL 2014

You have been looking forward to the day of the shoot with much anticipation. Yet unexpectedly, something almost disastrous happens the day before. You see a big red pimple or acne popping up on your face. Horror of all horrors!

But do not worry. The good news is that you are not alone. Many A-list celebrities too struggle with acne issues. And the better news is that we have a tried and tested three-step treatment you can use to combat those pesky pimples.

Step #1: Use A Milk Cleanser

The healing properties of milk have been well documented. Using a milk cleanser will help lighten red spots, reduce allergic reactions on the skin and helps heal wounds.

Cleanse your face with the milk cleanser in a circular and upward motion. Massage it into your face. Pay more attention to the pimple areas. Thereafter, wipe off the milk cleanser gently with a tissue.

Next, double cleanse your face with a cleanser using warm water in the shower.

Step #2: Use A Paper Mask

All you need is to invest 15 to 20 minutes. After cleansing your face, slap on a paper sheet mask. The best is to choose one that has soothing and moisturizing properties.Think hyaluronic acid, collagen, pearl and/or aloe vera.

Not only will your skin thank you for its glow the next day, you will also realise that the pimple will be under control and does not appear as red as it originally was.

Step #3: Apply Tea Tree Oil

Nature always has something incredible to share with us. Botany and aromatherapy have taught us how to extract the best from plants. Likewise, let’s turn to see how tea tree oil can help us subside the pimple.

An extract from a plant native to Australia, tea tree oil has been used as an important topical treatment for acne as it has antiseptic and healing properties. Just dab two drops of tea tree oil onto the pimple and watch it subside the day after.

Remember, having a zit or acne outbreak is not the end of the world. All you need to do is to do our three step treatment to keep it under control and glow anew on your shoot day!

It’s not the end of the world should a pimple or acne pop out the day before the shoot. Just remember our three-step treatment and think positive. Everything will turn out fine the next day and your skin will glow anew.
