Some people are lucky enough to have a completely clear complexion, no matter what they eat or how often they clean their skin. For others, maintaining a clear and even complexion feels like a constant uphill battle. While some breakouts are simply due to genetics, many episodes are easily preventable with the right skincare routine. In today’s post, we’re going to discuss a few easy ways you can keep your skin clear.

As we’ll discuss in more detail below, coming to The Perfect Look’s permanent makeup salon in Austin is a great way to save time, money, and keep your skin free of pore-clogging chemicals. Stop by or give us a call to learn more, and read on for a few easy ways to maintain a clear complexion!

How to Keep Your Skin Clear

Wash Your Face Regularly

Keeping your skin clean is the most effective way to prevent breakouts. Even if you use natural makeup or none at all, dirt and grease accumulation throughout the day can easily clog your pores. We recommend cleaning your face with fragrance-free cleansing cloths in the morning, evening, and after exercising. Face washes with salicylic acid can also be helpful, although they can cause dryness when used for long periods of time.


While acne is commonly associated with oily skin, people with dry skin are equally likely to break out. Start by investing in a daily moisturizer that is free of fragrances and synthetic oils, as these can both cause irritation and breakouts. If you struggle with oily skin, then you may want to try an oil-absorbing moisturizer. Keep in mind that moisturizing goes far beyond just applying a product to your face each day — you need to keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water, too.

Limit Your Makeup

Many makeup products are filled with synthetic chemicals, fragrances, and other ingredients that will clog your pores and dry out your skin. Concealer is a popular solution, but many concealers contain just as many problematic ingredients! Instead of continuing the cycle of applying makeup and covering up the blemishes it causes with even more makeup, find natural alternatives or limit the amount of makeup you use each day.

If you want to go completely makeup-free, then get in touch with The Perfect Look to learn more about the different kinds of permanent makeup we offer. You’ll save time in the mornings, reduce the amount of money you spend on beauty products, and be one step closer to a completely clear and glowing complexion.
