The Acne Prevention Tip List for Healthy Skin
This Acne Prevention Tip List is meant to help you maintain your
skin. Here are some practical, common sense tips that you will
Acne Prevention Tip #1: Don't Touch!
Let's face it. Picking, squeezing, scratching, digging, and
popping zits is irresistible. (Sometimes even fun if it's a
juicy pus-filled whitehead). But performing acne surgery with
your own fingers is going to lead to infection or permanent
Acne Prevention Tip #2: Wash only Twice a Day
Wash your face once in the morning and once at night. Despite
how desperate you may feel about your skin, over-washing will
only anger acne-prone areas. It can also stimulate more oil
Acne Prevention Tip #3: Shave Carefully
Shave lightly and only when necessary. Find a razor that is
comfortable for you, whether it's electric or something else. If
you use a safety razor, keep a sharp blade and soften your beard
entirely with soap and water before putting on shaving cream.
Acne Prevention Tip #4: Avoid harsh scrubs
Find a gentle cleanser or scrub (with small, smooth grains).
Products with larger grains can irritate or even tear your skin.
I recommend B. Kamins botanical face cleanser for normal to oily
and combination skin.
Acne Prevention Tip #5: Sleep on clean pillows
Change your pillowcase every 2 days. I flip my pillow over every
couple days and get 4 days out of them. Used towels and
pillowcases accumulate bacteria and skin mites that contribute
to breakouts. Keep your hair off your face when you sleep.
Acne Prevention Tip #6: Use paper towels instead of face
Don't use a face towel to dry your face. Instead, use a paper
towel to pat your face dry, and then throw it out. If you use a
facial cleanser, you don't need a face towel. If you use a
medicated soap, wash with your hands.
Acne Prevention Tip #7: Shower right after workouts
Sweat and oils from your skin can trap dirt and bacteria in your
pores. Shower soon after your workout because damp skin will
promote bacteria growth.
Acne Prevention Tip #8: Remove makeup before sleeping
Always remove any makeup before you go to bed. It plugs pores.
Regularly throw out old or contaminated makeup. Ensure your
cosmetic brushes are clean, and wash them regularly in soapy
Acne Prevention Tip #9: Avoid too much sun
Some topical creams or medications make people's skin more
susceptible to the sun. Despite the belief that tans hide
blemishes and are healthy for the skin, too much sun exposure
will rapidly age the skin and lead to higher risk of developing
