1. TRY A CHARCOAL BASED SKIN CLEANSER
Charcoal based products naturally purify your skin by deeply cleaning your pores. I generally have oily skin and after using Biore’s Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser 2x a day, my unwanted shine has been reduced tremendously! I’ve tried scrubs and salts, but nothing has compared to this cleanser. I highly recommend it!
2. ELIMINATE DAIRY FROM YOUR DIET
In the end of January, I made the switch from dairy to almond and soy based products. After a few weeks, my skin was less oily and my acne cleared! Casey Ho (a.k.a. Blogilates) also has a dairy sensitivity associated with acne. Your dairy consumption may be causing your breakouts. Take a break from the tempting cheese, yogurt, milk, and ice-cream. You may be surprised to see a beautiful and clear complexion within a couple of weeks!
3. EAT MORE OMEGA-3S
Omega-3s have been shown to control the production of leukotriene B4,a molecule associated with inflammatory acne. Omega-3s decrease inflammation which will reduce redness associated with acne! Omega-3s are found in many foods such as salmon, walnuts, avocado, and chia seeds!

Elaine’s glowing and healthy complexion is amazing. I had the pleasure of talking beauty with her at the Sephora X Lancome USA X Teen Vogue event on Saturday. Her inner beauty matches her outer beauty. Here’s a pic ( or 3! :D) from the event:
