Acne breakouts often occur because of changes you’ve made to your daily routine. Maybe you’ve started using a different laundry detergent, shampoo, face cream or soap. These are often the biggest culprits of an acne breakout. Scroll down and click through the gallery to read some of the most basic things you can do to prevent and fight acne skin.
1.Don’t pop your pimples.
This is the number one rule! Pimples contain nasty bacteria. If you pop your pimples, that bacteria has a chance of getting inside other pores and giving them a place to stay without charging rent, so to speak. Make sure your pimples pay rent. Another disadvantage of popping pimples is that the skin around the pimple, and the pimple itself, will become inflamed. Inflammation will cause even more redness and pain.
2.Drink enough water.
Many doctors recommend that you drink between 9 and 12 cups of water per day (2.2 to 3 liters), depending on whether you are a girl or guy. (Women should drink 9 cups, men should drink 12.) Your skin is an organ in your body, too, and like your kidney, it needs adequate amounts of water to function properly.
3.Consider going without makeup for a while.
Foundation and lipstick can be harmful to the skin. Although it may be a bit embarrassing going fresh faced if you have bad skin, going “bare” will definitely help your skin clear up.
