As the old proverb goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - and that holds true for skin woes! From wrinkles to blemishes, prevention is always easier than treatment. When it comes to making sure that acne doesn't get in the way of a big day, it's important to take care of your skin daily to prevent pimples and zits from cropping up at the least opportune times.
It's never a good time to get a blemish, but before a big date or a client presentation are some of the worst times your skin can choose to act up. And worse yet, the stress that these big events can bring on can make acne worse. Luckily, there are a few simples steps you can take to make sure that a zit never gets in the way of your life.
If you're not experiencing any breakouts yet, prevent them with a good cleaning regimen. Wash your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser, like Elemis Sensitive Cleansing Wash. Be sure not to use anything too harsh, especially if you're planning on using an anti-acne cream later, because too many chemicals can dry out skin and exacerbate your existing blemishes. Once your face is clean, pat dry with a towel.
Next, apply a spot treatment like Elemis SOS Emergency Cream. Designed to help irritated skin regain its natural balance to prevent breakouts, using this unique formula whenever your skin needs a little extra TLC can head off breakouts before they start.
