How To Prevent And Fight Breakouts With ZAPZYT

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own!

In past blog posts I've talked about how I've been lucky with my skin that I never get too many breakouts. Although I do think the luck of the genetic lottery does definitely help with my mostly clear skin, I also make decisions in my life to make sure it stays that way! I'm not going to lie, I definitely do get breakouts, particularly when I'm stressed, and these are the exact ways I help get rid of or prevent breakouts!

Eat Healthy
What you put in your body matters! If you're eating junk with tons of oils or fried foods it can disrupt your skin's hormones and clog your pores. If I get a nasty zit I always think back to what I had been eating the days beforehand and normally I can trace it back to something poor in my diet. A lot of the time I can clear up my face by adding some fruits and veggies into my meals! 

Wash Your Face
This should be a no brainer, but I didn't do this for the longest time! I just didn't see the point since I was rarely getting zits, however what I didn't realize was that although I wasn't breaking out it didn't mean that my skin was healthy. I had sort of a dull tone to my face and my pores were clogged pretty often. Some people recommend washing your face twice a day (morning + night), but if you're like me and have relatively clear skin I believe you can get away with only doing it at night!

Drink Water
Water is the key to beautiful skin. In fact, water is the key to keeping your entire body healthy and running smoothly, so are you really surprised that it could clear up those blemishes too? I've started drinking mostly water and have noticed a tremendous improvement in the number of zits I get. Seriously, if you aren't drinking enough water anyhow it's good for a number of other health reasons.

Give Your Skin A Break
If you wear a full face of makeup everyday and are wondering why you're still getting breakouts, I think we know the answer. Your skin needs time to breath, and not just while you're sleeping. Take a few days and forego the foundation and other face makeup and your skin will thank you!

Try Not To Touch Your Face
This is probably the hardest of these tips to follow, at least for me! I always find myself resting my hands on my cheeks, rubbing my face, etc. Or even worse, I'll get a zit and automatically start touching it, even though I know that it will only make it worse. When you touch your face you transfer all the oils from your hands in to your pores. So if you've been eating something greasy or just haven't watched your hands in a while, all the dirt and grime and oil are going to transfer onto your face.

Use The Right Skincare Products
I've gone through a lot of acne products over the years. I have had success with a few, but my skin tends to get used to products fairly quickly and I have to switch things up every few months. I've recently fallen in love with the products from ZAPZYT, especially their Acne Treatment Gel that is great for spot treatment. This acne gel works so well! I had a zit that seemingly popped up overnight and with one use of the gel it was nearly gone within a few hours. It does dry out the skin (like most acne products) but for how well it works it is well worth it in my opinion. I also really enjoyed using the other products in the ZAPZYT line. The Pore Treatment Gel, Acne Wash, and Pore Clearing Scrub all contain salicylic acid that help to stop breakouts upon arrival. I've noticed that the acne wash and the acne gel have worked the best for my skin which is on the dryer side. You can find all of these ZAPZYT products at Walmart!
