Alex graciously shares some beauty hacks guranteed to keep face acne-free. Here are some of them:

1. Get as much sleep as you can

Getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep has been proven to reduce one’s stress level. Stress which causes the sebaceous glands to produce more oil leads to the formation of acne. Alex explains, “Sleep helps the skin recover after a long tiring day so I make sure I get enough rest every night.”

Personal Tip: Studies have also shown that cell regeneration happens between 10 pm to 2 am, so make sure to sleep no later than 10 so your body can benefit much from skin cell regeneration.

2. Drink lots of water

Increasing the amount of water you drink is a great way to hydrate skin and flush out internal toxins from the inside out. Alex shares that she always keeps a bottle of water to keep herself hydrated during long hours of shoot.

Personal Tip: Add lemon to your water to balance the PH level of your body for a more glowing skin.

3. Exercise

Physical activity cut down stress and improves blood circulation. Exercise efficiently distributes oxygen to skin cells and carries wastes away. Alex adds, “I do pilates regularly. It is fun and a great way to relieve stress.”

Personal Tip: 20-30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise everyday is enough to improve blood circulation. You not only glow, you burn (fats) as well.

4. Sleeping without makeup on

No matter how tired she is after a long day at the set, Alex religiously takes time to remove all traces of makeup from her face to make sure her pores are not clogged with sweat, dust, and dirt.

Personal Tip: Choosing the right make-up is important as well. Some make-ups have strong chemicals and harmful ingredients that can make skin react thereby causing breakouts. Make sure to check the active ingredients in the product before you start using them. It is always safe to choose organic and hypoallergenic.

5. Invest in over-the-counter product

Alex swears by Proactiv, the leading anti-acne treatment product which is safe and effective to use by almost everyone. Alex shares, “Proactiv has always been part of my beauty regimen for six years. Its specially-formulated ingredients help treat and prevent acne.”

Personal Tip: Composed of the complete 3-Step System to knock out acne, Proactiv is very economical, safe, and easy to use:

Step 1 is the Renewing Cleanser, an oil-free, soap-free medicated exfoliating cleanser with U.S. prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria.

Step 2 is the Revitalizing Toner, a refreshing alcohol-free toner that refines and purifies pores.

Step 3 is the Repairing Treatment, a feather-light, invisible medicated treatment that kills acne-causing bacteria.

Every Proactiv kit comes with a free Proactiv Refining Mask, a rich, deep-cleansing mask formulated with sulfur, a proven acne- fighting ingredient that reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin.

As Alex puts it, “Proactiv use only requires less than five minutes a day. It’s convenient and it works!” Take it from her, she sure knows her way to a smooth and acne-free skin.

    Used to use Proactiv and recently switched to R+F Unblemish system. Made by the same company but worked better for me!
