4 Ways To Combat Acne

Many of us assume acne is a teenage problem, but that isn't the case at all. Anybody can be affected,
either through genetic factors or lifestyle habits that can bring out about those blasted spots. 

When we experience acne, we can suffer from low self-confidence, be that when the spotty
outbreak has begun or when we fall prey to acne scarring after the spots have subsided. Thankfully,
we don't have to suffer unduly. A micro roller can do much to reduce scarring, and there is much we
can do in our lives to combat acne before it becomes an unsightly problem.

In this article, we are going to give you a few tips on how to combat acne. So, have a read, and
enjoy the boost in confidence you will receive from your cleaner and smoother skin. 

#1: Keep your face clean

Acne is caused by a build-up of dirt clogging up your pores, so it is important to keep your face clean
during the day if you want to keep those spots at bay. Wash at least twice a day, and use a cleanser
that is appropriate for your skin type. Use these tips on washing your face properly to ensure you don't
do anything that could cause a breakout during the cleansing process. And be sure to remove your
makeup every night, as you might wake up to a spotty reflection in the mirror if you don't. 

#2: Eat a healthy diet

The foods we eat can be linked to acne outbreaks, so try to avoid those foods that will aggravate the
problem. These include greasy takeaway foods, and anything containing refined carbohydrates and
an influx of sugar. There are more details in the previously linked article. Then focus on those foods
that are actually beneficial for your skin, as well as your overall health. These include those foods that
are rich in antioxidants and which contain all of your essential vitamins. Again, refer to the previous link
to learn more. 

#3: Stop touching your face

How many times a day do you touch your face? You might do it more than you think, as it can become
an unconscious habit for some of us. However, try to be mindful, and stop touching if you can. This way,
you will stop transferring the dirt on your hands to the skin on your face, so you will have a reduced
chance of an acne breakout. Be sure to wash your hands regularly too, especially when you have been
outdoors or after you have done something messy, as you will have less chance of a breakout if you do
touch your face. And when using your phone for calls, keep it at a distance from your face, as you will
further reduce the chance of dirt and grease from affecting your skin.

#4: Keep your hair clean

Especially if you have oily hair, make sure you clean it regularly to prevent acne breakouts on your
forehead and face. Use the hair products that are appropriate for you, and ask for advice if you need to,
as certain shampoos and gels can actually worsen acne. These home remedies might be useful to you,
so have a read if you are prone to oily and greasy hair.
