Five tips for crys­tal-clear skin.

1 Cleanse Right

A harsh soap or scrub can ir­ri­tate in­flamed skin, so use a gen­tle cleanser no more than twice a day.

2 Lighten Up

Heavy or long-last­ing foun­da­tions may clog pores. If you re­ally need some cov­er­age, pick a light BB cream or CC cream in­stead.

3 Avoid Tress Dis­tress

What you put on your hair can cause break­outs on your fore­head and cheeks, so avoid styling prod­ucts if pos­si­ble, or keep your hair off your face with a clip.

4 Phone Care

Even if you take care not to touch your face with un­washed hands, bac­te­ria from your phone may get onto your face. So re­mem­ber to clean your phone with an an­tibac­te­rial wipe reg­u­larly.

5 Take Cover

UV rays may ag­gra­vate in­flam­ma­tion, so al­ways use a non-come­do­genic sun­screen, wear a hat, and stay out of the sun when­ever pos­si­ble.
