Everyday lifestyle changes to improve your acne

Healthy lifestyle choices to reduce acne. 


Eating and training like a Victoria’s secret model would surely result in great, acne-free skin however, we understand that our clients are busy with jobs and other obligations that get in the way of prioritising your skin 24/7. Here is an extensive list of achievable changes and things to try and help improve your acne.

  1. When you wake up in the morning start with 2 glasses of water to help flush your body of toxins (hydrated skin is also healthy skin) – then aim for 2 litres or more throughout the day
  1. Add a squeeze of lemon or apple cider vinegar to your water to aid in detoxification
  1. Limit your coffee consumption to 1 a day and if you need a caffeine boost drink green tea
  1. Talk to your doctor first, but try and take a pre/probiotic tablet everyday to deliver good gut flora to your body
  1. Add leafy greens to every meal of the day (in a smoothie for breakfast, in salad form for lunch and roasted, stir-fried or steamed for dinner)
  1. Skip the hot sauce and spicy curries (spicy food causes inflammation)
  1. Eat junk food in limited quantities and always wash it down with water
  1. Limit your alcohol consumption to the weekend and if you drink choose drinks low in sugar (avoid cocktails like the devil, instead opt for a glass of red wine)
  1. Wash/ Dry your face with a fresh clean towel EVERYTIME to avoid spreading bacteria
  1. Never sleep on the same pillowcase twice. Flip over the pillow for the second nights sleep then change your case in the morning.
  1. Clean your makeup brushes and sponges between every use
  1. Be conscious of how much you touch your face and ensure your hands are always clean
  1. Try not to sweat the small stuff, save the stress for issues that really matter (if stress is a big feature in your life, try a meditation app)
  1. Don’t over exfoliate your skin. Stick to twice a week and be gentle with your pressure
  1. Wash your face in warm water, not hot water (hot water causes inflammation)
  1. Swap your chemical makeup for mineral makeup
  1. Make sure your smartphone screen is cleaned frequently as this is a common cause of cross contamination
  1. Make sure you’re getting 8 hours sleep a night to ensure your immune system is strong
  1. Have a facial once a month to keep your skin in check professionally
