If you're like me, your skin isn't always the best. Sometimes it's dry, sometimes it's oily, and they're both equally annoying. I've struggled with acne my entire life, and at times it's even made me feel insecure about myself—until recently. Over the past few years I've learned how to feel more confident in my skin by making some simple changes that have helped me love myself more. If you want to learn how I did it (and maybe even get some helpful tips along the way), keep reading.
Teenage skin is often plagued by acne, blackheads, oily skin, and other issues that can be frustrating to deal with. But the good news is that with the right skincare routine, you can manage these problems and keep your skin looking healthy and clear.
Start with basics
1.Cleanse, tone, moisturise, exfoliate.
To be confident about your skin, start with the basics. The first step is to cleanse, tone and moisturise. This should be done every morning and evening to keep your skin feeling fresh and hydrated. Use a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser twice a day to remove dirt, oil, and makeup from your face. Be sure to avoid harsh scrubbing or using hot water, which can irritate your skin and make acne worse.
After cleansing, it's important to tone. Use a toner to balance your skin.
Then, moisturise. Even if you have oily skin, moisturising can help keep your skin hydrated and prevent excessive oil production. Choose a lightweight, non-greasy moisturiser that's formulated for your skin type.
In addition to cleansing and moisturising, you should also exfoliate once or twice a week. This helps remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, reducing the likelihood of breakouts.
2. Use a sunscreen.
Next up? Protect your skin from the sun. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even on cloudy days. Sun damage can worsen acne and cause premature ageing, so it's important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
3. Wash your pillowcase
Finally... wash your pillowcase regularly! We tend not to think about our pillows but they're another place where bacteria builds up over time so make sure yours gets cleaned once every week or two weeks depending on how often you change sheets etcetera...
4. Eat a healthy diet
Diet is the key to success. If you want to look and feel good, it is important to avoid sugar, fizzy drinks and unhealthy snacks. Eating vegetables and fruits even once per day will boost your energy and immunity.
5. Exercise 20 min a day.
Move! Every 20 minutes of exercising, walking, hiking or running is good for your body and mental health.
Change your perspective
1. Focus on the good things about your skin
Answer two questions: What do you like about your skin. What´s your skin type?
2. What you can change what you can't change
Make a list of things that you can control and change and focus on them.
3. How to change your perspective
Focus on the positive side. Make a list of positives.
Get rid of bad habits
1.Stop picking at your skin.
Stop picking at your skin. It's easy to get into the habit of picking at blemishes or dry patches, but doing so can cause scarring and leave you with more acne than before.
2. Stop using harsh cleansers and scrubs.
Stop using harsh cleansers and scrubs on your face. These products can irritate sensitive skin, causing redness and inflammation that will only make your complexion worse in the long run--and possibly even exacerbate existing acne problems!
3. Stop using acne products with benzoyl peroxide.
Avoid products with benzoyl peroxide; they're harsh on sensitive complexions like yours! Instead, look for gentle exfoliants (like sugar scrubs) that won't leave behind any residue as they work their magic on clogged pores without irritating them further by drying out surrounding tissues as well as adding unnecessary chemicals into the mix...
4. Stop using makeup that clog pores.
Do not use heavy foundations and products with silicone that will clog your pores. Try to use BB creams and light foundations.

Don't compare your personality to others, either--it's a trap!
2. Don't compare your skin to others.
Every skin is different, so you should not compare it to others.
As we mentioned earlier, it can be tough to feel confident about your skin. But don't let that discourage you from making changes in your life. Remember: You are beautiful and worth loving just as much as anyone else! The key is to start small, focus on what works for you and keep going from there.
