Getting to the root cause of acne


It has been an eye opener for me as I dig into the root causes of acne, and as I sieve out the truth vs the myths, I have come to a conclusion as to how we can deal with acne when it shows up.

And so, here is my guide to the POWER OF 3!!!

You may be surprised that it is actually quite simple!


1) KEEP YOUR FACE CLEAN!!!!

One of the most important way to prevent acne is making sure that you keep your face clean. And by that, I also mean that you have to keep your hair clean or if your hair is dirty, please keep your hair off your face by pulling it into a cute pony tail!

Sometimes, although we may be oblivious to it, the natural oils from our hair or even products we use on our hair may drip onto our face. This causes our pores to be blocked and thus causes acne.

In order to keep your face clean, you have to also keep your hands off your face. Avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can result in infection and scarring.


2) USE MAKE-UP SPARINGLY and REMEMBER TO CLEANSE YOUR SKIN VERY THOROUGHLY!!!

Don't layer your make-up too much i.e: concealer, foundation, loose powder and top it off with two way cake.

REMEMBER that Less is more especially for make-up.

Remember to wash your make-up off thoroughly at the end of the day and also NEVER EVER GO TO BED WITH YOUR MAKE-UP ON!!!!!

If you want to further prevent clogging of your pores, try to select oil-free cosmetics without added dyes and chemicals.

3) PREVENTION IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN CURE!

Do drink lots of water, you can easily prevent acne from occurring just by doing this. Drinking lots of water will keep your skin hydrated and also reduces the toxins in your body.

Do apply mask at least once a week. Choose a mask that is suitable for your skin type.
