Ways To Prevent Breakouts
Keep Your Face Clean
Sometimes, the simplest solutions are the easiest to overlook. Gently washing your face once or twice per day removes excess oil, sweat, and dirt that has built up throughout the day and allows your skin to breathe.
Know Your Skin Type
There are several different skin types, including dry, oily, combination, and sensitive. While anybody can experience pimples and acne, people with oily skin are generally more prone to breakouts. Knowing your skin type will help you select the products that are right for your skin.
Hydration is key! Keeping your skin hydrated helps to stop it from drying out, which is important as dry skin tends to produce more oil (sebum) which may lead to breakouts. For a rejuvenating boost of hydration, try our Collagen Essence Hydrating Face Mask – perfect for anti-ageing, hydration, and minimising fine lines.
Use A Treatment
Once you know your skin type, you’ll be better able to select the right skincare treatment for you. The active ingredients in the treatment you choose will play a large role in the benefits they may offer you. Ingredients that assist with breakout prevention include benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
Much like how you need to hydrate your skin, you need to ensure the rest of your body is adequately hydrated as well. Being dehydrated can give your skin a dull appearance in addition to signalling your oil glands to produce more sebum.
Wear Makeup Sparingly
While wearing makeup may help to conceal pimples, it may make breakouts worse in the long run as it can clog pores. Try to wear as little makeup as possible, and ensure you adequately wash your face at the end of the day. Investing in a makeup remover and hydrating cleanser is essential to achieving a clean complexion.
Keep Your Hands From Your Face
It’s easy to touch your face multiple times throughout the day without realising, but doing so may make breakouts worse. Touching your face with your hands introduces bacteria and can also irritate already-inflamed skin.
Stay Away From The Sun
UV exposure is harmful to the skin in many ways, one of which being it dehydrates the skin. Wearing sunscreen will help to protect your skin from cosmetic concerns such as sunburn, discolouration, and breakouts, as well as more serious issues such as skin cancer.
Don’t Pop Pimples Or Pick Blemishes
It can feel tempting, but popping a pimple or picking at blemishes can make them worse. Popping them can cause them to become inflamed and even infected and may leave scars in their place. If you do experience breakouts, gently clean the area and apply a spot treatment.
Stress can cause inflammation, which can then lead to breakouts. Reducing stress may then reduce your chances of experiencing a breakout. Great ways to do so include meditating, exercising, spending time in nature, or participating in hobbies.
