How to Beat Breakouts (Acne Skincare Tips) | Model Recommends

Instagram: instagram.com La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo – delivers worldwide: tidd.ly – if they haven’t any, then you can order on Boots but they don’t ship worldwide I don’t think… Boots are here: tidd.ly IMPORTANT! In the US, Duo is a spot treatment, NOT the all-over treatment that we have in the UK! OK, here’s a skin update video for you. I hope that these few acne and breakout tips help a few of you at least! It’s really hard to know which products work and which are making your acne worse or aggravating it, so my main rules would be: 1) Cleanse thoroughly with a gentle-yet-effective cleanser. If you want more recommendations, have a look at all of the ones I’ve reviewed on my site: www.amodelrecommends.com 2) Cut out eating sugar and junk food. It REALLY works! 3) Don’t use harsh topical scrubs (with big bits in them! Those Apricot ones are the worst culprits.) They really aggravate already aggravated skin. If it’s a fine scrub, that’s OK, but avoid those cheap and nasty ones with huge lumps in! 4) Cleanse again. 5) Give the Effaclar Duo a go, if you can. It’s literally the best thing so far I’ve tried for my adult breakouts, I can’t imagine it would be any less effective on teen skin.

    For people who wonder if sugar can promote acne, I would like to share my experience.
    I am not a sugar consumer, I prefer savory food. I have clear skin for the most part. One day I discovered I enjoyed a iced popsicle, very lightly sweetened. I started eating more and more of them, to the point I almost had one a day. In no time I developed spots on my chin. I stopped eating the popsicles, and my skin got soon better. This my experience, my two cents, hope it helps someone.

  • I agree with you on Effaclar Duo! 100% I had persistent blemishes and acne for months and months. And I was so frustrated and insecure. And one day I popped into a pharmacy and the pharmacist recommended this and since that, my very aggravated face has healed completely. This stuff is a miracle.

  • you shocked the hellll out of your body then, probably just getting used to it?

    @okmary10 noooo, don’t prevent freckles!! (Okay, maybe she’ll answer you and give you tips on how to do it, and if you really want to, of course you can try to get rid of them) I just wanted to tell you that I think freckles are absolutely beautiful and I wish I had more 🙂

  • Ruth! I love your videos. What ingredient do u think it is??? I’ve been having the same exact problem in the same area! I can’t pinpoint the cause.

  • Can you please do a video on facial self tanners that are good and don’t break you out? I would love that because I don’t fake tan in the winter. Thank you

    Was wondering where I recognised you from then from googling I realised that it was from “This Model Life”. Pleased to see that you’ve obviously done well for yourself, how long ago was programme? xx

  • Crazy thing! I never get breakouts… but decided to buy the effaclar duo anyways because you recommended it and I love your advice… two days later I got the worst breakout ever, and ALL over my face! So happy I had purchased the cream in advance, it is a miracle worker but you’re right purely medical 🙂 love from switzerland xxxx

    I had bad acne and decided to try tea tree oil – well i’ve never looked back since! It really cleared my skin and now I get compliments 🙂

  • newest research shows that sugar, high glycimic carbohydrrates and dairy link strongly to acne ..

  • You re absolutely stunning!

  • I feel the same way, it’s great when we use that one *only one* thing that work for our skin, but I just felt bored or a bit depress that I don’t use my other skincare products 🙁
