If you’re wondering how to get smooth skin, you’re probably suffering from intolerant, sensitive skin. This can be caused by so many things.
Firstly, and most commonly, genetics and diet can be to blame. Look at members of your family and review your diet. The former you cannot do much about, the latter you could probably make some drastic changes.
Make sure you’re eating a lot of veggies and drinking plenty of water. You could also try cutting certain foods out, try dairy for a month or so, then go vegetarian, cut out wheat — see if anything makes a difference to your skin.
As for skincare, keep it simple. Use a face wash that isn’t too harsh, has no added fragrance, and is preferably free of sulfates and be sure to exfoliate at least once a week.
Try using a fragrance-free moisturiser. Salicylic acid helps tone down redness, chemically exfoliate the area so it helps unclog the pores and can dissolve blackheads. Benzoyl peroxide on the other hand helps kill the bacteria and can also help unclog pores.
Some tips, according to Aurora Sum Ventura, include avoiding fabric softener on your pillowcases and sheets because the residual fragrance can actually irritate the skin and cause acne especially if you have sensitive skin. Avoid touching your face. A good amount of people are lactose intolerant and can end up breaking out due to consuming lactose so hit be aware of that, not everyone has worse case symptoms of lactose intolerance(in fact, most east Asians don’t even consume dairy) I believe gluten can be an issue for some people too and I’ve come across people who cut out gluten and their skin became better. It really depends on the person, there are lots of factors that can contribute to breakout, even hormonal. Depending on your age, it can be a factor as well, usually in the teens it’s common to breakout because your body is producing a lot of hormones and as you age it sort of calms down.
