Deal with Oil and Pimples Like a Boss!

Five simple steps to unleashing your max gwapo potential.


Keep the grease at bay and put your best face on display by following this easy skincare guide:

Step 1: Wash up
Oil + dirt = pimples. Daily face washing can help you get rid of these, thus, putting an end to your struggles with acne. However, using your bath soap is a big no-no, as its ingredients can be too harsh and end up damaging your skin. Your girl’s face wash won’t cut it either. Your skin is different from hers, so they have different needs. Get yourself a facial scrub that’s made especially for a man’s extra-greasy skin—a product that contains mineral clay, which can remove up to 95% of excess oil.

Step 2: Deep cleanse
There are some things that your face scrub may miss. This is where a deep cleansing solution comes in. This step is pretty straightforward as well, so it won’t take too much of your time. The key is picking the right product. Go for one with Zeroil formula to help prevent future breakouts with a few swipes.




Step 3: Moisturize
Cleansing your face is not enough. It’s important to moisturize your skin afterwards since cleansing can strip off the skin’s natural protective layer. With the help of a regular moisturizing habit, you can ensure that your skin is in its best state at all times. Massage a moisturizer with natural extracts and salicylic acid onto your face to keep your skin hydrated while minimizing your pores and leaving it with a smooth, matte finish.

Step 4: Beware of the things that come in contact with your face
From dirty hands, sweaty caps, and down to filthy phones, these things could be the culprits that breed and spread bacteria all over your face. Make sure that your hands are nice and clean before letting them anywhere near your face. Don’t let sweat-soaked caps sit on your head as this can cause pimples to pop up around your hairline. As for your phone, sanitize the screen as often as possible.

Step 5: Eat right
Go for more of the good stuff like Omega-3 which can be found in fish oils. It has anti-inflammatory properties that will help manage your breakouts.

While you’re at it, lessen your sugar intake. Studies have found that high sugar levels promote inflammation and sebum (oil) production, therefore aggravating your acne situation.

By following these suggestions, scoring pogi points will be a breeze!
