My people, I have come again!
Who else is experiencing this heat? Hey, Chi m o! What is happening to our ozone layer? Is the sun a plague on us or maybe?
As a result of all this humidity, it is only natural that acne (also known as black spots) finds a way to the face. Acne is caused by hormonal imbalance, stress but mostly sweat. Sometimes, I wonder why it isn’t such a similar experience to the us in the Savannahs. I think it has something to do with the weather.
Having acne is not just a woman thing. Men have acne too, walahi! So when you have acne and you want to clear it naturally without the chemical concoctions companies make these days, follow these five steps and I can assure you that they work like magic.
- Shower Twice a day
Sorry to say o but some of you don’t bathe as often as you should. Some shower only once a day while some shower once every two days. Ezi! Please, if you belong to this category of people, there is no way your face will NOT be filled with acne. Ndi mmadu, sef! Showering often will keep your face oil, dirt free and keep your face from acne brought on by sweat.
Foods that contain too much oil end up clogging the pores of the skin, thereby increasing the acne on the face. Include lots of grains and nuts in your diet and watch them soak up the fat. To those that are sugar lovers, you might want to reconsider letting go for your good.
Oshey, sleeping beauty! Getting enough sleep is a total package. Not only does it keep you rested, young and wrinkle free, it detoxifies the system and gives the skin an opportunity to shed dead skin cells. Of course, when your skin is relaxed, acne will not have time to draw map of Africa on your face.
Nna eh, you will not believe that some people don’t wash their bed sheet till after months of using! What is your plan? Eze ezi contest? King of pigs contest? Ha! I don’t understand how someone will use either pillow cases or beddings for weeks or months without washing. Please, if you are guilty of this, stop it. No one is above mistakes so learn from this and turn a new leaf. Wash all beddings during a week of use, maximum. This will prevent acne from building two decken on your face. He/she who has ears, let him hear.
- Use less makeup indoors
Ladies, let your face breathe! If you are indoors with no plans to go outside, wear a face free from makeup. If you have to go out, wash your face immediately you get home. The more you wash your face, the more you free yourself from acne.
