I’m sure we would all love to achieve clear and healthy skin one day. Unfortunately,
Well, you know what that means? It’s time to make changes in your skincare routine.
There are many reasons why you may not have clear and healthy skin. We’re going to discuss 4 reasons today and ways you can fix it so you can have skin that you’ll fall in love with!
Why Your Skin Isn’t Clear:
You’re Not Consistent
Do you have a consistent skincare routine? Without one, you can’t expect to achieve clear and healthy skin. It’s important to create a routine that you’re able to practice regularly.
You don’t need a ton of products or certain techniques and tools that claim to give you the best results. There are basic steps you need in your routine such as:
- Gentle Cleanser
Doesn’t that look easy to keep up with? Of course, there are other steps you can add such as exfoliating, facial masks, and spot treatments, however, you can still keep your routine simple and straight to the point.
If you try to over-complicate things, it’ll be harder to stay consistent. Sometimes keeping things simple is more effective.

Not Removing Makeup
I know many women are guilty of doing this. You come home late at night exhausted, so you fall asleep with your makeup on and think it’s not a big deal. This is another reason why you aren’t achieving clear and healthy skin.
When you sleep with makeup on, you’re more prone to breakouts, clogged pores, wrinkles, and other irritations. And no, quickly wiping your face with a baby wipe isn’t going to cut it!
I know how it feels to be tired and not want to do your skincare routine, however, it’ll only benefit you over time. Take those 5-10 minutes to wash your face. I promise, your skin will thank you for it!

When you know your skin type, you’re able to choose products that will be more effective and suitable for you.

If you’re a product junkie, then I understand you want to try everything. There are many products to choose from, therefore, it’s hard to decide what would work best for you! However, trying a lot of products every day won’t provide you with clear and healthy skin; It will do the opposite. And unfortunately, I learned this the hard way!

Even if your products contain safe ingredients, it’s best to keep it simple.
I’m sure you’re ready to get your routine started and see instant results, however, this isn’t the way it works! You can’t expect any product, no matter what it claims, to produce results overnight! That’s why it’s important to create a routine you can stay consistent with. Consistency and using effective products will eventually help you achieve the results you desire.
A good thing to do is take pictures of your skin regularly. You’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come! Sometimes we aren’t able to look in the mirror and see changes. Comparing your pictures will keep you motivated on this journey!
If you’re wondering why you don’t have clear and healthy skin yet, ask yourself if any of these reasons apply to you. I’m not an expert and have made mistakes in my journey. I experience ups and downs with my skin like everyone else and sometimes get frustrated.
However, staying consistent with my routine and using the right products for my skin type have been helpful and provided great results over time.
