Embarrassing spots can hit us all from the school student to the prime minister
All treatment of acne is aimed at preventing inflammation and reducing outbreaks before they happen. Here are 12 great tips.
Why some people have severe outbreaks while others hardly have a pimple is not entirely clear. But genetics and environmental impacts clearly play a role as this skin care company points out.
1. Keep your face clean.
Wash your face once and preferably twice daily with Sebu-Wash Gel Cleanser.
2. Do not scrub with a washcloth…
Use your hands to cleanse your face and dab your skin dry with a clean towel instead of rubbing it dry. Scrubbing can actually promote more acne.
3. Avoid exfoliating brushes.
While advertisements show the benefits of these brushes, avoid them if you have acne. Studies suggest that they can actually aggravate acne.
4. Eat a healthy diet.
While there is no scientific evidence that chocolate and greasy foods exacerbate acne, studies suggest there is a correlation.
5. Don’t ignore your hair.
If you have oily hair, you may need to wash it more often than people who have dry hair. Keeping your hair clean will help prevent breakouts on the forehead and face.
6. Bath and wash your face right after workout.
Sweat sticks to your face and may contain bacteria that cause acne.
7. Use moisturizer and sunscreen specially made for the face.
Creams designed for the body are heavier and can clog your pores.
8. Use water-based, oil-free makeup.
Makeup has long been used for the purpose of covering blemishes. But be careful – you may be exacerbating your outbreaks. Heavy, greasy products with cocoa butter, mineral oil can aggravate acne.
9. Take care to remove facial hair.
Often it is best to use an electric razor that moves gently down the hair. Clean the blade regularly and shave in the direction of hair growth to avoid beard plague.
10. Avoid touching your face.
Every time your fingers meet your face, they transfer dirt and oils. It is a tough habit to break, but an important one to break.
11. Don’t push your pimples out.
It can increase your inflammatory state of the skin and can cause scarring.
12. Change bedding at least once a week.
If there is dirt and oil on your sheets, rub it off on your skin while you sleep. This is especially important for your pillowcase because this is where you rest your face.
