Acne Mistakes You Might Be Making

Posted in Uncategorized by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
The causes of acne breakouts are multifactorial, meaning that acne is caused by a number of different factors. A few of the main known causes of acne breakouts are hormones, genetics and diet, all of which contribute to overactive sebaceous glands that produce sebum. When that sebum gets trapped in the pores, that's when a pimple is formed. So how can we control the formation of acne? You might be doing some seemingly benign everyday activities that are making your acne issue worse. Here, the activities that may be contributing to your breakouts:
  • Not changing your pillowcase on a regular basis. Dead skin cells and oils can buildup on your pillowcase and the bacteria can end up on your skin, leading to acne breakouts.
  • Touching your face with your hands. We all do it all the time without even thinking about it. If you're going to touch your face with your fingers, make sure to clean them first with soap and water or anti-bacterial gel.
  • Not cleaning your phone. Make sure to rub down your cell phone with an alcohol swab to rid of any lurking bacteria on it before it touches your face.
  • Sharing makeup brushes. Letting your friends borrow and use your makeup brushes is never a good idea, it can spread bacteria from your friend's skin onto yours.
  • Using fragranced skin care products. Look for skin care products labeled "fragrance-free." Fragrances can be very irritating to the skin and may cause inflammation.
