Let's face it, there is A LOT of advice out there when it comes to our skin. So I wanted to break it all down into some verified, evidence based advice that you can actually use. The main reason your acne might be coming back is that you may not be drinking enough water, you may not be eating clean and you're stressed (who isn't with the Coronavirus situation). This could be the reason your acne just doesn’t clean up! It may improve with product help but never really goes away fully.
So you keep resorting to many products and all the DIY masks that you could find. You wake up every morning and check the mirror hoping it’s magically disappeared but nope, it’s just casually hanging out at the same spot you left it. Maybe you have even come up with a nickname for that nasty pimple that just won't go away (oh Freddie you stubborn little zit)!
There may be some sneaky reason why your face won’t clear up, and you should be careful. I don’t blame you though, even I was shocked at most of them...
Binge-watching YouTube day/night skincare routines? And then impulsively ordering skincare products to get the same glow? That’s all good. It may not be working for you though.
Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., founder of Capital Laser & Skin Care in Washington, DC. Says that with so many antioxidant, retinoid, acne, and exfoliating products on the market, women are layering up products which may do more damage than good for the face.
"Since the ingredients are more active and effective than ever, they can also irritate the skin if overused or used in combinations that are not right for your skin type," she adds.
It’s important to understand each of the active ingredients in your products. The ‘stronger’ the product is, it should be used in low quantities.
Furthermore, you may be scrubbing your face too hard to get the pollutants out of your face. It feels fresh but it can severe damage. Your face is the most sensitive area of all and should be treated very gently. Try using an organic tea tree oil face wash, such as the popular tea tree oil face wash from Keeva Organics, which is great for sensitive skin, very gentle and actually works.
Anything that is synthetic or artificial should always raise a red flag. These are made up of hundreds to thousands of different ingredients not listed on the label, so you are never sure what you are actually being exposed to.
Usually found in cosmetic and skincare products but also many household products such as candles, air fresheners, and scented trash bags.
I’ve always had clear skin but a few months ago, I started seeing acne on my cheeks. Yikes, I blamed my bad habit of not cleaning my make-up brushes and possibly, the bacteria from my phone.
I started cleaning my make-up brushes and got electronic wipes for my phone. I saw the difference yet it wasn’t completely gone. After being so lost, I turned to google with my frustrations. I badly missed my clear skin on my cheeks.
I landed on a website that opened my eyes. It was my PILLOWCASE. Your pillowcase collects the oils released from your skin while you sleep and you sleep on it again. You know where I’m going with this, switch out your pillow case once a week. No seriously, it’ll make a difference. I'm saying this from experience.
Umm Coronavirus ahhhh! You’re stressed out and that’s it. That may be causing your acne to make your face its’ home sweet home. Since you’ve been taking such good care of your skin and body, and haven’t seen a difference. Try out a yoga class or simply meditate.
When your stressed, the tank of cortisol hormones that are released can be so detrimental to your skin. Not just skin but overall, health.
“Patients who have skin conditions have been shown to have higher instances of anxiety and social avoidance,” says Abigail Waldman, a dermatologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
“It’s all interconnected in that stress and anxiety can impact skin conditions, and having skin issues can lead to anxiety and negatively affect someone.”
Next time you’re anxious or stressed out about the tiniest of things, just ask yourself if it’s really worth your health.
This may not be your regular prep for going to the gym. However, washing your face before and skipping the makeup is a good choice. “If you don't wash your face before working out, then you're sweating up against all of the oil, dirt, debris, and makeup that is on your skin, which can clog your pores,” says New York-based dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross.
Also, make sure to wash your face immediately after your workout. You don’t want sweat to dry and clog your pores.
If you didn’t think about these sneaky reasons why your acne isn’t clearing up, you’re not alone. Spread the word, and finally get rid of the stubborn acne.

What women are saying about us...
“The combination of sweat, dust and stress lead me to a massive breakout along my jawline, chin and cheek bones. It was embarrassing and I felt like a teenager again. In desperation I sought out the Internet and came across many review for this product. Long story short, I am so thankful I did! This product has helped calm my face, make acne heal quickly and fade pre-existing acne marks on my face.”
"I do not believe in miracle products, but Keeva certainly fits that description. I have extremely sensitive skin, and I have tried everything from drug store products to proactive to prescription. They all either cause a reaction or do nothing to help my acne. I decided to try one last product before calling a dermatologist, and I am so glad I did. Keeva is amazing!"
"I've done it all and I've suffered severe breakouts to the point that they were actually painful. I would give this 10 stars if I could. I have suffered with acne my whole life Nothing worked, and I've tried it all, NOTHING. I've done it all and I've suffered severe breakouts to the point that they were actually painful. I gave this a try after seeing an ad on facebook, thinking what the heck, if it doesn't work there is a money back guarantee. I saw results in less than two days."
