[Acne Story/Tips] The DOs & DON'T for Acne-Prone Skin

Source: from some random chinese site (I forgot the link...)
Acne is one of the most common skin issues faced by many people, especially teens. So, how acne is formed? Well, I have shared these videos before in my "Summer Breakouts & My Favorite Summer Skincare Essentials 2014" post and I decided to share them again here. 

from 0:12 to 2:29

from 0:10 to 1:58

To put it simple, acne breakouts happen when pores in the skin get clogged with facial oil called sebum and dead skin cells. Once the pore is clogged, a pimple starts forming and attracts bacteria. Soon after the bacteria invaded, the pimple will get inflamed.

[Advertorial/Sponsored] Review: Natural Divulge All Natural Extreme Emu Oil

Natural Divulge All Natural Extreme Emu Oil (1/4oz)
Natural Divulge's All Natural Extreme Emu Oil is proven to be 45% more effective than unprocessed emu oil. Emu Oil's advanced anti-inflammatory activity has encouraged many companies to use it as a base for their skin moisturizing, acne fighting, and muscle/joint products. It contains a complete balance of essential fatty acids (Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9), which play a part in almost every function of the human body, including the regeneration of healthy new skin cells. Natural lipids found in emu oil match that of human skin, replenishing these lipids helps replenish skin from the inside out. Also, it supports skin's natural stimulation of proteins resulting in faster rejuvenation. The effects of emu oil to replenish and rejuvenate skin are indisputable.

Natural Divulge's All Natural Extreme Emu Oil is non-toxic, hypo-allergenic (non-irritating), and gentle for all skin types. It is 100% All Natural and carries the AEA Certified Fully Refined® seal. Made in USA.

[Beauty Tips] 7 Must-Dos For A Healthy Complexion

Having a healthy looking complexion isn't difficult! Keeping your skin in tip-top condition is actually easier than you think. Here are 7 Must-Dos for a good and healthy glowing skin. 

1. Drink Up!
Water works wonder for your body and skin! It flushes toxin and waste substances from your body. Also, it replenishes the skin's tissues, moisturizes the skin and maintain skin's elasticity, giving you a healthy and glowing skin. Thus, drink plenty of water (at least 8 glasses of water) a day!

2. Eat Healthy for Beauty
Kick away all the greasy, fried and junk foods! Consume more fruits and veggies (at least 2 servings each every day) instead as they contain powerful anti-oxidents which help to prevent free radical damage, protect your skin cells and slow down the aging process. Not only that... They are also rich in various nutrients(vitamins, minerals, fibers) which help to boost your immune system, detoxification and improve your complexion, keeping your body and skin healthy.

3. Keep Your Face Clean
Wash your face twice a day. Twice is enough! Over-washing rip away the skin's moisture and disrupts the skin's barrier which can cause drying, skin irritations and redness. During cleansing, be gentle with your skin. Do not rub or scrub your skin. 

If your skin is prone to acne breakouts, use products that specifically for troubled/acne skin. These usually contain anti-acne ingredients such as Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide or Tea Tree Oil.
