  • After trying our fair share of products that promise to transform our skin overnight, we know the disappointment that inevitably follows. Instead of looking for a miracle product, try making these small changes each day to get glowing skin in less than a month.
    After trying our fair share of products that promise to transform our skin overnight, we know the disappointment that inevitably follows. Instead of looking for a miracle product, try making these small changes each day to get glowing skin in less than a month.

  • Day 1: Visit a dermatologist. It may seem simple, but many people skip this step and subsequently treat their skin the wrong way. A quick trip to a skin doctor can take out a lot of the guesswork in your beauty routine.

    Day 2: Break bad habits by keeping hands off of your face. The bacteria on your fingers is only making your skin problems worse.

    Day 3: Wash your pillowcase once a week. Bacteria on your bedding can cause breakouts.

    Day 4: Clean off your phone with an alcohol pad. Phones spend too much time near and on our faces to not be clean.

    Day 5: Choose a cleanser with salicylic acid.

  • Day 6: Dry your skin with a soft t-shirt, instead of a towel. Some towels are too abrasive and cause tiny tears in the skin, where bacteria makes its way in.

    Day 7: After washing your face, use a toner that will clean pores without stripping skin of your natural oils.

    Day 8: Limit your retinol products to nighttime, since they become inactive in sunlight. Instead, switch out your skin care routine in the AM for something without retinol.

  • Day 10: Clean off makeup brushes once a week to keep bacteria from being spread.

    Day 11: Don’t neglect your body! After drying off after a shower, spray acne-prone body parts with Glo Professional Back Acne Treatment.

    Day 12: Moisturize with a face oil. While those with blemishes tend to shy away from oil, it can stop your skin from creating excess sebum, which causes breakouts.

    Day 13: When slathering on sunscreen this summer, choose a non-comedogenic version for your face.

    Day 14: If you wash your face in the shower, be sure to wash your hair before applying a facial cleanser.

  • Day 15: If breakouts are located around your hairline, change out shampoos. Your skin might be reacting to the formula.

    Day 16: If large cystic pimples show up on the chin area once a month, consider using a treatment targeted toward hormonal acne.

    Day 17: Incorporate lots of leafy greens into your diet, as well as these other skin-clearing foods.

    Day 18: Eliminate sugar and dairy from your diet to see if that makes a difference in your skin. For many people, their faces start clearing up immediately.

    Day 19: Exfoliate your face with a chemical exfoliating product.

  • Day 20: Use a skin clearing mask once a week.

    Day 21: Never go to bed without taking off your makeup. If it’s a worse case scenario, at least swipe your face with a Simple Cleansing Facial Wipe.

    Day 22: For large cystic pimples, use a spot treatment at night with an aspirin mask. Mix 5-8 aspirin tablets with a few drops of water until it’s dissolved into a paste. Dab the paste onto pimples for an overnight reduction in size.

    Day 23: Deep clean your pores with a DIY facial every couple of weeks.

    Day 24: Be sure to get enough sleep each night and limit stress, which can cause skin eruptions.

  • Day 25: Dab a tiny bit of Visine on bright red pimples to take away the redness.

    Day 26: Drink plenty of water throughout the day. It’s amazing how big a difference this step can make in your appearance.

    Day 27: Exercise at least three times a week. By maintaining inner health, you’ll help balance your skin.

    Day 28: Stay consistent with your skin routine to see the results you want.
