According to acne expert, Dr. Schweiger, here are the top 10 acne fighting tips you should follow this year:
Cleanse before bed - even if you only have time to use a cleansing wipe, it is important to remove oil and grime from the day before going to sleep.
Change your pillowcase - hair products and oil from past nights' sleep can accumulate on your pillowcase and clog up your pores.
Don't touch your skin - dirt and oil from your hands can transfer onto your face.
Pay attention to hair care - if you start to break out after using a new hair product, consider switching it to something else. Hair products can clog the pores on your skin and cause acne.
Visit a dermatologist - if you're experiencing acne, do not wait to visit a dermatologist until it gets serious. Even mild acne can be quickly treated with prescription medications.
Manage your stress - increased stress causes hormones to be released into your system, which can lead to the development of acne.
No bathroom surgery - popping pimples in front of your bathroom mirror leads to increased inflammation on the skin, which can keep the pimple around longer and may result in more acne scars.
Wear sunscreen - even people with oily skin need to wear a sunscreen during the daytime. Acne medications and treatments can make your skin sun sensitive. It is important to protect it against damage from the sun. Choose a sunscreen with broad spectrum protection, that is labeled non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic.
Clean your cell phone - Oil from your skin deposits on your cell phone all day long; it is important to keep this oil from returning to your skin to clog your pores.
Consider a cleansing brush - Cleansing brushes, such as the Clarisonic, remove 6 times more dirt from the skin than traditional cleansing methods. Keep your pores clean and improve the texture of your skin with daily use of a cleansing brush.
