Most people suffer from acne, usually during adolescence, around puberty. Contrary to popular belief, acne doesn't necessarily mean your skin is dirty. In fact, cleansing your face can irritate your skin even more. Here are some simple ways to prevent acne breakouts.
Try not to touch your face
Hands are breeding grounds for bacteria. The fewer bacteria on your face, the less chance of acne on it. Do not squeeze out the blackheads, or you will bring in more bacteria and make the situation worse.
Wash your face
Wash your face twice a day: morning and evening with warm water.
Make sure the cleanser is right for your skin. Choose a hypoallergenic antibacterial agent.
Exercise releases endorphins, which in turn reduce stress levels and therefore decrease sebum production. Exercise 30 minutes daily will help you reduce acne not only on your face, but also on your chest, shoulders, and back.
Take a shower
Showering helps reduce sebum production, kills bacteria, and washes away dead skin cells. Use soft gels and shampoos. Shower is especially effective after exercise.
Highly processed foods as well as foods high in fat and sugar can greatly increase acne on your skin. Eat fruits and vegetables, foods high in protein, which will increase skin regeneration and help get rid of acne.
Get enough sleep
Sleep at least eight hours a day. If you don't get enough sleep, then your skin has no time to create new cells. Also try to go to bed at the same time.
Drink more water
Water helps to detoxify the entire body and also cleanses skin cells.
There is nothing better and healthier than clean drinking water.
Give your body and skin time to rest regularly. Take a relaxing bath, read books, meditate, do yoga.
Keep your laundry clean
Wash towels, pillowcases, and sheets regularly - at least once a week to remove grease and bacteria that build up on them.
Use oil-free makeup
If you wear makeup, then use mineral makeup. And when possible, try not to use makeup at all, as it clogs pores throughout the day. Also, clean your makeup brushes regularly to prevent bacteria growth.
