Sometimes it seems like no matter how you try to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating clean and exercising, your skin still breaks-out – and invariably at the most inopportune times. If you are concerned about the appearance of your skin because of acne flare-ups, we may be able to help. But first, let’s talk about some of the probable causes of acne.
Blocked Pores. Your body is full of pores, and they play an integral part in your body’s overall health. Their purpose is to move waste products such as sweat from your body to help it maintain a healthy equilibrium. But your pores can easily become obstructed, and when that happens, acne can be a result. One of the surest ways to combat this acne trigger is to keep your face clean with a morning and night skin care routine – wash your face and never, ever go to bed with your make-up on!
Bacterial Growth. Acne loves and feeds on germs. Don’t touch your face and don’t pick at your skin. Your daily face-touching habits when relaxing at home, at work or when you sleep can add unwanted, unhealthy bacteria to your facial skin – making existing acne worse and resistant to treatment.
Excessive Oil. Your skin needs oil to stay moist, bright and youthful. But when your skin produces too much oil, your risk of acne is increased. With hormonal changes comes excessive oil production. That’s why so many teens going through puberty suffer from acne. Many adults must also deal with hormonal imbalances and may find they need treatment for adult acne as they age.
