Nobody likes getting pimples. But sadly, hindi lang teens ang nagkakaroon ng breakouts. Adults can still get acne too!
Bakit nga ba tayo nagkakaroon ng acne or breakouts? Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become clogged with oil, dirt, dead skin and bacteria. When the pores are clogged, nagkakaroon ng swelling, or pimples.
Aside from dirt buildup, may mga iba pang possible causes ng acne tulad ng hormones, stress, poor diet, and bad skin care practices.
There are spot treatments that help get rid of acne, but as they say, prevention is better than cure.
Follow these tips to help you prevent breakouts (and reap great skin benefits too):
Use a gentle cleanser with anti-acne properties.
Apart from its intense whitening benefits, the new Kojic Plus+ line from Gluta-C also has anti-bacterial properties that fight acne and breakouts. Plus, it does not dry out or irritate the skin so it is safe to use every day.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
When it comes to skin care, it’s best to take a holistic approach. Keep a healthy diet and avoid food that are high in sugar and starch, which can aggravate acne-prone skin. Stress can also be a factor in worsening breakouts, so give yourself a break and relax!
Get your beauty sleep.
When you’re asleep, your skin goes on repair mode. So when your sleep cycle is interrupted, you’re not giving your skin enough time to recover. Try to get a decent amount of sleep each night and wash your face properly before going to sleep. Also, sleep on clean pillowcases and sheets, as dirt and bacteria on your sheets can cause you to break out.
Stick to a good skin care routine.
Keeping a regular skin care routine is still the best way to prevent breakouts. Take note of these skin care basics and you’re good to go.
