6 Tips for preventing Acne
Here is a final checklist of valuable acne prevention methods:
Find a regimen and stick with it – Pick your medication and treatment method and do not deviate from it unless you achieve measurable results or find that the condition is worsening.
Don’t use alcohol – Do not use products, like toners, if they contain heavy concentrations of isopropyl alcohol. This can do more damage than good.
Don’t over-wash – With the myth of dirt being a cause of blemishes or acne, cut down the times you wash. Two should be the limit each day. Anymore, and you risk increasing the breakouts you have.
Choose skin products carefully – Don’t get harsh or abrasive scrubs that can tear the skin and further aggravate the acne.
Wash after exercising – Don’t forget to hit shower after you’ve had a workout. The friction and moisture caused by clothing rubbing against the skin can create the perfect conditions for acne production.
Avoid constant touching or picking at your face – This is pretty self-explanatory. These activities can cause bacteria to get into pores and create acne.
