Acne is one problem that spares no one. Whether you are a male or a female, whether you are young or old, acne can affect you at the most unexpected and the most inconvenient of times.
Imagine getting ready for that party you have been waiting all week, and when you look in the mirror, you see that red spot spurting right in the middle of your face! It can be devastating, to say the least.
Acne need not be only on the face. It can appear on your arms, back or even thighs. Though face is the most prominent spot and easily seen, these other areas are also acne prone.
Tips And Tricks
Here are a few tips to keep your skin acne free:
Clean – keep your skin clean, especially acne prone areas. If you have acne on your back or upper arms, wash those areas with an anti septic soap or anti acne solution. Ensure it is kept dry at all times. If needed change your clothes more frequently, as this will reduce the bacteria growth.
Moisturize – Acne can occur even if your skin is not moisturized properly. When the skin is too dry, body reacts and starts secreting oil to balance the dryness. Excess secretion is what results in acne. Use dermatologists recommended or oil free moisturizers, so that your pores don’t get clogged.
Aware – Be aware of the products you use. Be it a new makeup product or a face wash, watch out for any symptoms. If you see a sudden burst of acne spots, you can trace back your steps to identify what was new that could have triggered the acne.
Eat Right – Acne is not the result of just the products you use on your skin. It is also th effect of what you consume. Eat healthy and ensure your food is balanced. There are many food items that can help reduce acne too.
