13 Ways to Get Rid of Acne and Wrinkles

(#12 and #3 Worked for Me!)
Acne and wrinkles. Two arch-enemies of the beauty world! There are a million products out there designed to help combat these pesky skin problems, but not every product will be just right for your needs.
And with so many to choose from, where do you even start?
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 1
Keep Your Skin Soft with Coconut Oil!
It might seem counter-intuitive if you’ve already got an oily complexion, but keeping your skin moisturized is key to helping manage breakouts.
Unrefined coconut oil is the perfect product to keep up your hydration! You only need a very small amount (less than a dime-sized dab). The natural complex fats in coconut oil will help repair and protect your skin, and the oil absorbs quickly to help keep your skin soft without clogging your pores.
Well-hydrated skin will not only help reduce the amount of oil your skin produces naturally (which will minimize breakouts), but will also help prevent wrinkles in the long term!
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 2
Detox and De-Stress with Green Tea Ice Cubes
Many people drink green tea because of its amazing health benefits. But, did you know that you could use it to help your skin too?
After a hot shower or steam, massage your skin using a green tea ice cube (just brew the tea normally and freeze it using a standard ice cube tray!). The cool temperature will help soothe any inflammation, which will ease pimples, breakouts, and redness.
Additionally, the powerful antioxidants in the green tea will give your skin a healthy, gorgeous glow!
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 3
Fight Trouble Spots with Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a natural astringent that is hugely helpful in banishing troublesome zits.
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 4
Skip the Harsh Scrubs! Use Baking Soda Instead
Exfoliation is important to help keep your face clear.
Unfortunately, a lot of popular sugar and salt scrubs – while fine for your body – are too abrasive to use on your face. Harsh scrubs can cause microscope damage that contributes to both breakouts and wrinkles in the long run.
Baking soda, on the other hand, is super cheap and is the perfect texture to use on the delicate skin of your face. You can use baking soda as a gentle scrub about 2-3 times a week; sloughing off dead skin cells and dirt keep all that gunk from building up in your pores.
And, not only does regular exfoliation help fight breakouts, but it also keeps your face super soft and glowing!
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 5
Add a Little Vitamin C
Orange juice is a great tool for helping spot-treat breakouts. The citric acid helps to dry up any excess oil/ sebum that might be clogging your pores, and the antioxidant power of vitamin C will take care of harmful bacteria, and help your skin look super healthy to boot.
Just make sure that you use freshly squeezed OJ. Bottled juice or anything from concentrate will have added sugars, chemicals, and preservatives which are not a good mix for your skin.
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 6
Keep Your Skin Clean!
This might seem a little obvious, but keeping your face clean is your number one defense against pimples.
Any number of things can clog our pores and cause breakouts, from dead skin cells to excess oil (sebum), to dirt, makeup, etc. That’s why it’s best to wash your face at least once a day (preferably at night, so all that stuff isn’t messing with your skin while you sleep!).
Use a gentle cleanser (coconut oil happens to work great as well), and follow up with a non-comedogenic moisturizer.
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 7
Always Sleep on Clean Sheets!
Your pillow covers are more important than you think when it comes to your beauty routine!
Dirty bed linens are one of the main causes of breakouts; our pillows hang on to oils and dirt from our face and hair, which contribute to unwanted zits.
You should make a point of washing pillow covers every time you do a load of laundry, and toss the rest of your sheets in at least once every 2-3 weeks.
Additionally, opting for satin covers (as opposed to cotton or flannel) can help prevent fine lines/ wrinkles, especially if you tend to sleep on your stomach!
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 8
Go Exclusive with Non-Comedogenic Products
You’ve seen me use the term “non-comedogenic” a few times already in this article, and it’s super important if you want to stop a breakout in its tracks.
Any products that are labeled as “non-comedogenic” or “non-acnegenic” means that there aren’t any ingredients present that will clog your pores or cause extra oily skin.
If you’re looking to treat or prevent pimples, stick to moisturizers, makeup, and cleansers that boast this label.
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 9
Prep with Primer!
If you’re looking to minimize the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles in your face, make sure to use a primer before applying your foundation at the start of the day.
Not only will a primer ensure that your look stays put all day long, but it will even out any irregularities in your skin (like fine lines and oversized pores), so your face will appear smooth and flawless!
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 10
Treat Yourself with a Face Rub!
Everyone loves a good massage, right?
Making a point of giving yourself a little facial massage once a day will help increase circulation to your skin.
Better blood flow to your face means that not only will you look more rosy/glowy, but your skin cells will be better able to repair themselves, and you’ll likely experience a decrease in the appearance of fine lines.
BoomZip Pro Tip: Facial yoga also helps to achieve this effect, and has the added benefit of tightening/ toning your muscles, which will give your face a more defined look.
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 11
Use an Egg White Mask for a Quick, Natural Lift
A really easy way to help diminish wrinkles and fine lines is to use egg whites.
The natural proteins and vitamin A in egg whites will help to tighten your skin and temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Just take two eggs, separate the yolks from the whites, and whip the whites into a froth/foam. Then apply the egg whites to clean skin and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 12
Get Regular Facials
The BoomZip Pro Estheticians have gotten amazing results for adult clients who suffer from facial acne, fine lines, and wrinkles.
BoomZip’s Pros provide a variety of facials – each specially designed to address a particular skin issue. Foe example, they offer the Fountain of Youth Gold + Collagen Facial (to address wrinkles and aged skin needs), the Teen Facial (for teenager’s skin breakouts), the Grown Man’s Facial (for deep pore cleansing and skin restoration), the Rejuvenating Facial (to repair tired-looking & damaged skin), the Detoxification Facial (for adult acne and dull skin), the Sensitive Skin Facial (to soothe fragile, inflammed skin), the Rosacea Facial (to decrease the conditions associated with rosacea), and the Signature Facial (crafted to address a variety of skin issues). They have something for every skin issue.
But, they will tell you that you won’t get clear skin with just one treatment.
To get the best results, you’ll have to commit to a regular series of targeted facials.
BoomZip Pro Tip: To maximize the benefits, you’ll need to be consistent with your skin care routine during your “off days.”
Fight Acne and Wrinkles – Step 13
Fight Prematurely Aging Skin with Sunscreen!
Everyone loves to soak up the sun, but if you’re not using proper protection, those warm rays are certain to start messing with your skin.
Sun damage causes wrinkles, dark spots, and can even cause cancer if it is severe enough.
Your skin can be damaged by UVA/UVB rays whether it’s a cloudy or sunny day.
This is why it is vital that you make sunscreen a part of your daily routine. Make sure to use at least SPF 30, and stick with a sunscreen that is designed to go on your face for a lighter, less oily feel.
There are endless solutions for skin care out there, but these thirteen tried-and-true tricks are guaranteed to fight acne and wrinkles, and keep your skin looking youthful, clear, and healthy all year round!
Just about all of these tips use ingredients that can be easily purchased at your local grocery store, and they only add minutes to your daily routine. Give them a try, and I promise you’ll start seeing a difference in no time!
