What To Do To Prevent Acne Inflammation

By Alan Bradd

Acne is one among many skin conditions that is mainly characterized by pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. It occurs mainly on the face because of a mixture of oil and dead skin cells that block your sweat pores. This skin condition normally occurs in teenagers but may later transgress to the earlier parts of adulthood. Here is how to fight this skin condition.

You can prevent this skin condition by ensuring that you keep your face clean all the time. Washing the face daily can help remove out the impurities, oil, and the dead skin cells. Be sure to use warm water as opposed to hot water, and a gentle soap when washing your face. Use a light cloth to wash up, then rinse and dry yourself using a clean towel.

Because of the drying impact of this skin condition, it is important to moisturize your face using a moisturizer. Make sure that you select the right moisturizer when you are shopping that minimizes dryness and prevents the skin from peeling. There are moisturizers for dry skins, oily skins, or a combination of the two.

For acne purposes, it is normally advisable to avoid using too much make up such as the powder, blush or wearing foundation. If you do, you should wash it out every night before bedtime. The chemical composition of some of the cosmetics can cause emergence of pimples and irritation on the skin. When buying make up, always look for the ones written noncomedogenic as these cannot cause acne.

The fragrances, oils and gels that you apply on your hair can cause blockage of sweat pores when they get to the face. It is important to avoid using these too. A good substitute would be a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Avoid getting the oil on your hair from reaching your face by keeping it as far away from the face as possible.

Try not to touch your face every once and then. Touching your face often risks the probability of spreading bacteria as well as irritation on the skin of a person with acne. If you notice pimples on your face, do not pick or pop them. Instead, use proper treatment to prevent scarring and infection.

A common risk factor for this skin condition is intense rays from the sun. The rays can cause irritation on the skin of an affected person and worsen the condition. Wearing protective clothes like long pants, long sleeved shirts and a hat can help prevent the skin from getting direct rays from the sun. Sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 30 can also help you avoid direct sunlight when you are outdoors.

Doing exercise is also important when dealing with this skin condition. There are many benefits of exercise such as improving the basal metabolic rate as well as assisting in the general function of all the body organs, including the skin. Wear light clothes when exercising, and avoid machines that rub against your skin; then shower as soon as you are done.

Additionally, make sure that you stay stress free as this has been proven to trigger acne. Avoid stressful situations in your life and deal with any anxiety that you may have. If necessary, seek the counsel of a professional to help you fight stress.
