You might have heard of most of the tips to manage acne, from eating properly and drinking
enough water to picking the right skincare products. However, we’ll break down exactly
why and how each piece of advice applies to good management of your acne-prone skin.
1. Apply Appropriate Skincare
With acne, it’s crucial that you pick skincare products with ingredients that do not end
up worsening your skin. So which ones do you pick? Ideally, you want to choose
products that are alcohol-free, light, and natural and make sure to stay away from
astringents and toners.
2. Work Out
You might be caught up in the acne-myth that you should not exercise or that you
should keep your workouts to an absolute minimum. The truth is that this is a really bad
idea because it will have an obvious effect on your overall health and wellbeing. When
you exercise, it can help with unblocking your pores. However, make sure you jump in
the shower right after a workout – before your sweat dries up and worsens your skin.
3. Eat Healthy
Some of the foods you’d want to include in your diet and on your plate are those that
are high in omega-3 and reduce inflammation, they include avocados, salmon, walnuts,
spinach, flaxseeds, and pastured eggs.
4. Get Your H20 – Drink Enough Water
Staying hydrated is very important in fighting off acne. When you’re not hydrated
enough and your skin is dry, it could lead your body to produce an excess of oil that
could cause more acne breakouts. It also helps to take out toxins and beat bacteria
baddies that increase the possibility of pore-clogging.
One lesser-known culprit is hair lying on the forehead – especially oily hair. So forget the
fringe and keep your hair away from your forehead. You also want to make sure that you
keep your hair healthy and clean with a good shampoo on a regular basis.
