If you are worried about getting acne breakouts there are a few steps that you can take to lower the chance of getting breakouts. These steps will not guarantee that you will never get acne because there are so many reasons that contribute to why people get it, however what these tips will provide is things to avoid and things to add in to your daily life that will significantly decrease the chances of spots and help keep your over-all skin healthy.
Tip 1 – Always Be Gentle When Cleansing The skin
Cleansing the face is something that should be done daily at-least twice a day (morning and night), however if you are to harsh when cleansing the skin this can cause redness, inflammation and possible breakouts. The best practice when cleansing the skin is to massage on your chosen cleanser very lightly for a maximum of 20-30 seconds, then pat dry with a clean towel, never rub as the can aggravate any existing blemishes.
Tip 2 – Never Squeeze Pimples
If you do get a pimple the worst thing you can do is squeeze it. Instead you should follow the correct procedure that is recommended by dermatologist, which you can find at Pimple Popping Tools Can Destroy Your Skin. Other alternatives if the pimple is small or in an area that is not easily visible is to use a concealer that will help hide the pimple until the body has healed it naturally.
Tip 3 – Drink PLENTY Of Water Everyday
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to drink lots of water on a daily basis. You will often hear the figure of 6-8 glasses (2litres) of water per day should be consumed, however I do not agree with this as on hot day you could easily drink more than that and on colder days that much would be very difficult. I would just recommend drinking the amount of water that you feel comfortable with and only when your thirsty.
Tip 4 – Reduce Stress As Much As Possible
If you want to keep your clear skin one of the worst things you can do not to accomplish this is to let yourself get very stressed. If you fell that you are under a lo of stress and its effecting your over all health and skin one of the best things you can do is yoga, this is an extremely effective too for helping to relive yourself of stress.
Tip 5 – Change Your Pillow Case Daily
The pillow case very quickly builds up with oil, dirt and other impurities from your face and hair very fast, if the pillow case is then left this will eventually block the pores leading to acne breakouts. I would recommend changing the pillow case daily however if this is not reasonable for your situation then every 3 days should be fine.
Tip 6 – Exercise On A Daily Basis
Everyone knows that taking part in some kind of exercise everyday is beneficial, but not many do it. If you want good health and clear skin which most do then exercise is definitely something that you should be doing, and this does not have to mean spending hours in the gym, in-fact you do not have to spend any time in the gym. The best exercises you can do to help your skin are exercises such as walking,jogging, cycling and activities such as hiking.
Tip 7 – Diet
Many “experts” will tell you that you have to eat extremely healthy and will need to cut out all bad foods to maintain clear skin, however this is not true and can even cause a negative impact. What is true tho is the fact that you will have to add in healthier food and decrease bad foods, but having a treat every once and a while will not cause you to have multiple breakouts ling term.
