4 Ways To Prevent Acne

acneWho wants to have acne on their face before a big date? For that matter, who wants any blemishes on their face at all? No one we know, that’s for sure! Unfortunately, you do have to pay attention with your skin care routine and other activities in order to both prevent acne from occurring and to help get rid of it quickly if it does.

To that end, here are four ways in which you can prevent acne from forming in the first place. Try them out—your skin will thank you!

Washing Your Face

Of course, the most important method when it comes to preventing blemishes is also the simplest. Washing your face on a regular basis is essential for keeping your skin healthy. Ideally, wash your face once in the morning and once at night. Make sure to look at cleansers appropriate for your skin type. If you are extremely acne-prone, the good news is there are countless cleansers specifically designed to help.

Over The Counter Products

Beyond the acne face cleansers you can use to wash your face in your normal routine, there are also a number of other acne products you can buy at the drug store. There are spot sticks, where you only apply it to current pimples, as well as acne pads, which are often a concentrated form of acne cleanser. If you do choose to use these products, keep in mind that the medication in them can dry out your skin if you use too much, which can cause a whole other set of problems.

Watch Your Products

What products do you use? This goes for hair products, skin care products, as well as any makeup. You may actually be bringing the acne upon yourself based on the products you use and the ingredients within them. Take a look at the ingredients, paying attention to specific oils and other pore-clogging ingredients. If any of your products fall into this, consider switching brands. Ideally, look for non-comedogenic products (which are non-clogging).

Reduce Your Makeup

Sometimes, your blemishes come down to how much makeup you use. It can, unfortunately, be a vicious cycle in that you might use makeup because of your acne, but are actually causing a lot more blemishes because you are using lots of makeup. We advise slowly weaning yourself off wearing makeup and progressively putting on less each day. You should also save a couple days a week to go makeup-free, even if you do not leave your house, as this allows your skin the ability to breathe.
