Prevent Acne Breakouts: Using Common Sense

Prevent Acne Breakouts

Stop Touching Your Face

Do you really want to prevent acne breakouts? Whether your are doing it subconsciously throughout the day or not, you need to stop touching your face! Think about all the bacteria and debris that your hands come in contact with everyday, and think twice about if you want that on your face. Even worse than touching, is picking…don’t do it! It can lead to the spread of the bacteria that is causing the breakout.

Wash Your Face Religiously

I cannot stress this enough. Just like anything good in life, clear skin takes patience and consistency. Some people are just naturally blessed with clear skin, but for those with skin issues, you need to stay on top of it. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to treating your skin, remember that.

Eat Better

Need I say more? Your diet can play a huge role in your appearance on the outside. Easier said than done, but this is not something that should be overlooked. Make sure you are getting your daily dose of all the important food groups.

Reduce Stress

Stress can be a huge factor when it comes to troublesome skin. As we all know, stress has an immense effect on the body, and your skin is no different. Just like dieting, it is easier said than done, but anything you can do to lower your levels of stress, the better. Take a walk, go to the gym, or attend a painting class. Learn to not stress the small stuff to improve your well-being.

Get Enough Sleep

Lack of sleep can also go hand in hand with stress. Make sure you are getting the recommended 8 hours, your skin will thank you. Also, if your face is touching your pillows, wash your pillow sheets regularly. Sheets can be a breeding ground for dead skin and bacteria if not washed consistently.
