When sweat mixes with bacteria and oils on your skin, it clogs your pores. A lot of the time, using your hands when washing just pushes more grime and make-up around your face. And if you have acne-prone skin, this can often mean breakouts. Big, bad, breakouts.
Made from medical-grade silicone, the FOREO ESPADA is the only an innovative device based on blue light acne treatment technology used by the world’s top dermatologists for professional level acne therapy. It helps combat acne and drastically reduce the spreading of germs on the skin. It combines Swedish design with sonic cleansing technology and is Bazaar’s favourite new high-tech answer to outdated creams and treatments.
The FOREO ESPADA uses a special blue light that penetrates below the skin’s surface, deep within the follicles, to quickly (30 seconds to be exact), is non-invasive and oh so effectively destroys acne-causing bacteria. And did we mention it’s waterproof, only needs to be charged once every five months and comes in an array of cute colours? You’re welcome, ladies!
As a technology-obsessed culture, like pre-Netflix days, we can’t really remember what life was like before this revolutionary beauty tool rocked our world – and our complexion.
Our Top Three Tips for Avoiding Breakouts
· Blot sweat with a clean towel. Wiping can irritate your skin and lead to a breakout.
· Wash sweaty clothes, headbands, towels, and hats before wearing them again.
· Use non-comedogenic products on your face, neck, back, and chest. Look out for the label, which will say “oil free” or “won’t clog pores".
