You have an important event to go to – say, a party or maybe a prom for you adolescents – and on the day of that event, a huge zit decided to pop out… right in the middle of your nose. Yes, you could put concealer on it but wouldn’t it be infinitely better to have a “pimple-less” face? Bet you don’t want this kind of situation to happen to you, right? And this does happen, even worse. There are more serious acne problems that some people deal with. Of course, there are many effective acne treatment medications and remedies available. But it is so much better for you to not have to deal with acne problems, right? Well, here’s an acne advice. There are so many simple things that could easily be incorporated into your daily routines which could prevent acne. Here’s a few:
Practice good hygiene.
Shower regularly and wash your face twice a day, i.e. After you wake up and before you go to bed. It is important that you keep your skin clean and exfoliated. You see, the dirt that accumulates in the pores of your skin could cause you blackheads, pimples, and other acne whatnots.
Drink at least 1.2 liters of water every day.
Drinking water keeps you hydrated and it also helps to maintain clear skin.
Add fruits and vegetables on your menu.
Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals that help keep your skin clear and moisturized. For example, food rich in Vitamin A would help your body to flush out proteins and oil which cause acne.
When you are stressed, your body secretes acne-causing hormones. Exercising reduces stress. Aside from helping you achieve and maintain a healthy body, you would also be having clearer skin. Other stress-relieving exercises like going to spas help as well.
Get enough sleep.
When you don’t get enough sleep, your stress levels would probably increase. As aforementioned, stress causes your body to release hormones, which cause acne. So aim to get those 8 hours of sleep.
These are very basic things that not only help you to reduce acne problems, but also improve your way of life. So stay healthy and be acne-free!
