33 Simple Ways To Prevent Acne

Here are 33 simple ways to prevent and get rid of acne. 

  • Learn what type of skin you have so you know how to treat it.
  • Find out if you are allergic to anything.
  • Wash your face day and night.
  • Wash your face after sweating.
  • Avoid towels on your face. 
  • Don’t over-wash your face. This has adverse effects.
  • Exfoliate once or twice a week to get in a deeper cleanse.
  • Add a toner in your skincare routine.
  • Use SPF every day even indoors.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty water. Dehydration causes breakouts.
  • Eat healthy. Eat fruit and vegetables to get in your nutrients.
  • Exercise regularly, your skin and body will thank you for it.
  • Reduce your alcohol and dairy intake.
  • Quit smoking. It makes your skin dull and gives you wrinkles.
  • Cut back on carbohydrates and sugar. They can manifest in the form of acne.
  • Cut back on oily food
  • Find ways to de-stress. When you are stressed, your skin shows it.
  • Make sure you get enough sleep. 6-8 hours.
  • Don’t sleep in your makeup. Always wash it off.
  • Try going without makeup for a day or two to let your skin breathe.
  • Keep hair off your face. You don’t want hair products getting into your skin.
  • Avoid fragrance in your skin care products
  • Stop touching your face all the time.
  • Use products in a tube rather than in a jar. Putting your fingers into things can cause bacteria to build up.
  • Try not to pick your face when you have acne.
  • Treat your acne immediately. Don’t wait days or weeks to do something about it.
  • Wash your make up brushes often.
  • Use anti bacterial wipes to clean your phone screen. Your phone contains bacteria which can cause breakouts.
  • Wash your hats and caps so that accumulated sweat and bacteria doesn’t get to your face.
