5 Simple Lifestyle Tips for Reducing Acne

I know there are millions of people out there with  acne dark spot problem that seems to never go away.. So, with all that said, here is my simple 5 Steps to Clearer Skin (Yes,I tried all this steps and I must say it contributed greatly to my clearer skin journey, so it is tested and trusted. Hopefully, these will help you too:


1. Drink Water

 Water is by far the most effective treatment for acne dark spot.  The main support for this claim is the fact that water is alkaline (pH 7.3) and can be considered as a natural treatment or an almost free acne treatment.  Thus, it is best that you drink at least eight glasses of water per day (10 to 12 is better). This will help your body in getting rid of oil, waste and toxins, and water even helps to moisten your skin as it keeps your pores from clogging. 

Perhaps what is most important is that, water helps to relieve stress and relax your body in the end, so you can have a better sleep. Note that water and sleep are factors that help reduce stress. Along with this, try to lessen your coffees, sodas, teas and alcohols intake as much as possible. The reason behind this is that they are partial diuretics that they drive more water out of the cells of the body than they put in.

Drink lots of purified water. Look, many of us with acne dark spot problems continue to drink all of these sodas that have a lot of acid, colors, etc. Soda can really mess up the face. Leave all sodas and other drinks on the market alone and stick to only purified water. Water does wonders to the body!

2. Avoid Stimulants

 Coffee, tea, cigarettes, as well as excessive sugar from sweets and soda should be avoided.  It is often said that anything potential for affecting the entire body, brain and nervous system can easily stimulate the sebaceous glands to release more oil.  This oil has to leave the body through the pores, worsening your acne in the end. Stimulants even trigger stress.


3. Pay Close Attention To Your Diet

 Note that diet affects acne/ dark spots.  So be careful with what you eat. As much as possible, try to eat foods that are low in fat, as fats produce more oils in the body that are capable of producing acne.

 Eliminate any and all fried foods or greasy foods from your diet. Yes, I know many dermatologists will disagree with this. What I have found is that when I stopped eating fried or greasy foods my face automatically started clearing and improving to the point where I was receiving compliments almost every day. Fried food carries too much grease that can cause big pimples to form in your face. Also, many fast food places use old grease over and over again. Old or reused grease is one big block in your way if you’re trying to get clear skin. Not Good!


Eat a lot of vegetables (raw organic baby spinach is wonderful) and fruits every day. Yeah, I know you heard this before, but some of you are still not doing it. Vegetables and fruits alone. Many vegetables and fruits have antioxidants and vitamins that can help in healing and clearing the skin

 4. Avoid Alcohol

 A number of people think that alcohol is one of the best ways to relax and relieve stress.  Well, alcohol may do this, but studies have found out that alcohol causes the formation of acne .  It is considered capable for producing acne knowing that it is an astringent, thus it shrinks the skin pores, making them more prone to clogging.  Aside from that, alcohol inhibits sleep, therefore causing more fatigue and stress, leading to worse acne dark spots.

5. Hot and Very Cold Count

 When considering baths, you should avoid hot and very cold water on areas of the skin affected by acne/dark spots. Use warm water instead; perhaps well below 98.5 degrees on your skin.

 If your goal is to have a beautiful skin, then you should try to avoid very cold water and rubbing alcohol.  It was found out actually that when your skin pores shrink, more oils are clogged in the pores of the skin, causing the onset of acne.

 Enjoy these steps and take your time. Give yourself 3 to 6 months to see actual improvements in your skin. For these steps to work properly, please add each step to your daily routine. Each step must be performed on a daily basis. For more skincare tips, contact minimo today.
