Skin Care Tips to Help Prevent Acne Breakouts

Minimising breakouts of acne and pimples requires ongoing skin care. Here are a few of the best things you can do:

Tip 1

Wash your face regularly

Keeping your face clean is the one of the best ways to help reduce acne breakouts, by removing impurities, make-up, and excess oil from the skin. Use a dedicated facial cleanser twice daily.

Tip 2

Choose oil-free sunscreen

Using an oil-free sunscreen when outdoors will not only help protect your skin from the sun but also can help avoid clogged face pores which can aggravate pimples and acne.

Tip 3

Wash your hair regularly

Oily hair may lead to oily skin and worsen acne. Keeping your hair off the face and washing it regularly can help prevent acne breakouts and pimples.

Tip 4

Avoid excess exfoliation

Over-exfoliating (removing dead cells from the skin) can cause skin irritation and dryness, leading to an increased production of sebum that could block pores and could lead to more acne and pimples.

Tip 5

Use oil-free hair products

Buy hair products that are oil-free and avoid getting these on your face to help keep your pores unclogged and prevent acne and pimples developing.

Tip 6

Use an oil-free facial moisturiser

Light, oil-free moisturisers are less likely to aggravate pimples. Look to buy product descriptions such as “non-comedogenic”, “oil-free” and “won’t clog pores” on the packaging.

Tip 7

Keep your hands off your face

Try your best to avoid touching your face and pimples, as dirt and bacteria can travel to your skin and increase irritation.

Tip 8

No squeezing!

Tempting as it is, squeezing can make pimples worse and increase the risk of permanent acne scars.

Tip 9

Eat a healthy diet

It is best to avoid foods that you know will trigger your acne. Some recent work has suggested that dairy products and high-GI foods can make acne worse.

Tip 10

Choose your make-up wisely

Try to buy water-based, oil-free products to avoid clogging up your pores with oils and powders. Make sure you remove all your make-up before going to bed.
