Tips to prevent acne

The most effective methods to prevent acne include a combination of prevention and better skincare. Effective acne prevention will requires using the right acne treatment options, and good hygiene habits. To get rid of acne and pimples, and other skin problems like blackheads, go through these few great tips about acne prevention. Sometimes the stress itself of having these acne and trying to figure out measures to get rid of them can make things more worse. These tips will be helpful in relieving those stresses and preventing the acne.

Tip1

Do not ever pick, pop or squeeze the pimples/blackheads, or otherwise mess with your skin. These will lead to infection or scarring, almost always making the acne worse. Picking/squeezing can permanently scar your skin. If you must pick, please be sure to immediately apply a topical antibiotic to help prevent any infection setting in.

Tip2

Wash your dirty towels and pillowcases regularly as they are known to harbor/carry bacteria and germs that will make the acne worse.

Tip3

Oily hair aggravates acne, so avoid use of oily products like pomades or hair spray, especially if you have pimples on your forehead and want to get rid of them. If you have long hair, wear your hair pulled back or consider having a shorter hair style that keeps it off your face, neck and shoulders if acne are more in those areas. Be sure to pull your hair back or away from your skin when you sleep so that pimples/acne do not develop overnight.

Tip4

Have a shower after workout as soon as possible since sweat combined with skin oils trap dirt and bacteria in your skin pores.  At the same time avoid hot, humid environments like poorly ventilated kitchens, gyms, tropical climates. Stay away from cooking grease or machine oil as much as possible as it can contribute more to developing blackheads and clogged skin pores.

Tip5

Wash your skin gently with a mild non-soap based facewash or cleanser and warm water once or twice daily. Hot water and harsh cleansers are known to irritate your skin.

Never go to bed with makeup on. It will clog your skin pores and lead to breakouts. It is very tempting to try to scrub away acne, but that is not the right way to get rid of them. Scrubbing too hard or too frequently can actually make them worse and promote scarring by increasing the inflammation and/or rupturing cysts under your skin, which will lead to bacterial spread and re-infection. It will also lead to possible over production of oils to replace what is washed off, clogging the pores in the process. However if you do need to scrub, remember to use products with gentle exfoliation ingredients and no alcohol.

Tip6

Use cosmetics that are labeled “noncomedogenic” or “nonacnegenic”. Use a non-acnegenic moisturizer in the pimple prone areas, else they will go worse. Clean your cosmetic brushes regularly in soap water and throw out the old, contaminated makeup articles. Keep anything that can carry bacteria away from touching your. Avoid shimmering facial colors and makeup articles, including lip gloss as they lead to more pore-clogging.

Tip7

Use topical treatment creams in places where you tend to get breakouts not just the existing pimples. The pore-clogging process usually happens two to three weeks before the actual blemish/blackhead becomes visible on the skin. Using salicylic acid acne medication in the body spray is an exfoliant, which helps to remove the dead skin that combines with the oil and dirt to form blackheads and whiteheads that eventually get infected and become pimples.

Other treatment options include topical retinoids, oral antibiotics and Benzoyl Peroxide for teens. Oral contraceptives or hormonal birth control pills and hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) may be helpful for adult women, combined with systemic or topical treatment medications.

Tip8

Regular exercises can help to reduce stress and increase blood circulation and oxygen penetration to the skin, which helps to prevent acne. It also help fight acne by fighting off negative stress levels that can come from negative self-esteem and depression. Stress can trigger acne, so it is best to try and avoid stressful situations, and resolve stresses by talking to friends/family or a professional person, be sure to get enough of good sleep. Exercising regularly can also help reduce stress and it increases blood circulation and oxygen penetration to the skin, which may help with acne prevention. Regular exercise can help fight acne by fighting off negative stress levels that can come from negative self-esteem and depression.

Tip9

Drink at least 64 ounces of water or 6-8 glasses of water a day to help “detoxify” the body from the inside out. It helps in good skin hydration, thereby preventing excess oil secretion and thereby clogging of pores.
