Not having good skin is a pain. A lot of us (unfairly) associate having bad skin with having bad hygiene habits even though bad skin is not a sign of whether someone keeps clean. Anybody can experience a breakout.
Acne is caused by a few different things, which makes just about everybody susceptible to it! Even thought he breakouts we face as adults are not usually as severe as the breakouts we faced as teenagers, our skin will still flare up every once in a while and knowing how to prevent that from happening is simply part of becoming an adult. This article contains a few skin care tips that you can use to keep the acne away.
Before you do anything else, you need to find a good cleanser. It should go without saying that your cleanser should not have an oily base, but that is not the only thing you need to look at when you shop for your cleanser.
Salicylic acid is one. People who have to deal with really bad acne will use the salicylic acid content as their primary search criteria. In a “regular” cleanser though, the strength of the salicylic acid is just enough to zap the bacteria and clean out your pores. Unfortunately, as you get older, your skin will become more sensitive and using salicylic acid cleansers regularly will be bad so you should save them for spot treatments later on.
Your hands should not touch your face if you can help it. Have you ever thought about how often you touch your face each day? The contact between our faces and our hands is partly to blame for our acne problems. Think back. Whenever you touch something and then, later, touch your face, it is sort of like rubbing that object into your pores. Touching your face is a great way to clog your pores with the oil and other things your hands have touched during the day. Your face is a prime entry location for germs which is why touching your face is one of the ways that the flu is transmitted from others to you: you touch something that has been touched by a sick person and then touch your face: viola! you have the flu! This is why you should try not touch your face with your hands.
If you are unable to keep your hands away from your face make sure to wash your hands often! Keep those hands clean by washing them throughout the day!
Learn to relax once in a while! Believe it or not, for many people, stress levels directly impact the size and scope of an acne breakout. Make some time for relaxation every day. Learning how to stay calm in high stress environments is a good idea. If you lead a fast paced lifestyle consider slowing it down a little bit. Finding time for yourself is imperative for your mental health and it is important for your skin! There are a lot of different causes of acne. The size and scope of a person’s breakouts are not important–what is important is knowing that you are not the only one who gets acne. Acne does not discriminate against age: everyone suffers from it at some point. There is a huge variety of solutions for people who suffer from skin issues. You might be able to cure it with a good over the counter facial cleanser. You might have to ask a dermatologist to help you. Just keep trying and soon you’ll find the solution you’ve been looking for!
