How to Get Clear Skin Fast

Posted on September 20th, 2018

It’s time to kick your skincare routine into high gear, #iTANfan! Despite getting plenty of beauty sleep and exercising regularly, breakouts can sneak up on you when you least expect it. If you’re pressed for time and need clear skin, like, yesterday, we’ve put together a list of our top go-to tips.

Overnight mask

If you only get the occasional blemish (lucky you!), try using an overnight mask before it has a chance to surface. The Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Mask helps to dry and clear blemishes, and helps diminish the appearance of future ones. To combat redness and inflammation caused by a sudden break out, the Boscia MATCHA Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask is just for you!

Say, “cheese!”

The Photo Facial, offered at select iTAN locations, uses LED light emitting both red and near infrared light designed to rejuvenate and restore the delicate skin on your face, neck and hands.  This 20-minute session helps fight wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen and corrects skin discoloration. iTAN’s Photo Facials also help polish your complexion by minimizing pores, reducing breakouts and improving the skin’s texture, even after just one session.  

That’s the spot

To maximize your odds of getting rid of blemishes ASAP, your best bet is to try a spot treatment. We love the Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment for a quick acne reducing solution. All you need to do is dab a little bit on before bed, and you’ll wake ready to go in the morning!

Aloe vera  

Aloe vera has long been known for its healing powers. The anti-inflammatory properties accelerates the process of healing by reducing redness and inflammation. You can either use aloe vera as a cool and soothing face mask or spot treatment for your problem areas.

Keep it natural

Essential oils, such as tea tree and lavender oil, can be a quick natural fix to your breakout woes. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics act to soothe and nourish your skin, while fighting the root of the problem! An added bonus is the relaxing smell that’ll make you feel like you’re at the spa!

Don’t pick at it

The single hardest part about unwanted breakouts is fighting the urge not to get rid of it. We may think that a little squeeze will make it go away faster, but that can lead to permanent scarring and further breakouts.
