4 Bad Habits to Avoid That Can Worsen Your Acne

Clear, healthy, blemish-free skin is a dream for many and though you can’t do anything about your hormones or hereditary, two main causes of acne, you can alter your daily routine to improve your skin’s appearance. Break your skincare bad habits to prevent acne and enjoy the healthy glow of clear skin.

Sleeping with makeup on

Crashing before cleansing is a surefire way to clog your pores with all the makeup, sweat, and dirt that’s built upon your face throughout the day. “When the pores clog, you're inviting the formation of a microcomedone, which can attract the P. Acnes bacteria into your pores and cause a breakout.

Carelessly using haircare products

Yes, you have read that correctly. Some hair care products that come in contact with your skin can lead to breakouts that are popularly termed as pomade acne. These products can seep oil into the forehead and can, at times, trap acne-causing bacteria in the layers of the skin, thus aggravating acne. These clogged pores become inflamed and red while leading to pus and breakouts in the hairline and forehead area.

Vigorously scrubbing your skin

Scrubbing your skin with a washcloth, loofah, or harsh exfoliant will cause significant irritation and may worsen your acne-prone skin. To prevent acne, always wash with only lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser.

Eating greasy foods

While the food that you eat doesn't cause acne, greasy foods can make acne-prone skin worse because of the excess oil and grease that can get on the skin from the food itself. So stick to a healthy diet without greasy, fried foods to spare your skin and your health.
