Acne is probably the worst thing to have. Not only does it take all the confidence away from you, it can make your life awful simply because people will look at you in a different way or worse, make fun of you.
Personally, I have had people who would just come up to me and point at my face and ask,“What’s wrong with your face?” It made me really feel terrible. It is so unfair.
Did you know that acne prone people are born with 4 or 5 times more skin cells and create much more oil than the average person?
So Why Are You Still Struggling with Breakouts?
Over time, I found that acne can be cured with simply good habits. I will show you how to cure your acne without spending so much money on products that usually do not work. There are sneakier, under-the-radar ways that you could be irritating your skin. So if you are confused as to why you are getting acne, read this article!
List of Common Bad Habits that Cause Acne
Bad Habit – 1: Wearing the Wrong Clothes
The fibers inside your wardrobe could possibly be the culprit for body acne. Fabrics like polyester and lycra can trap dead skin cells and sweat against your body. We shed 1 000 000 skin cells every 45 minutes, and when we wear super-tight clothes, those cells do not actually have anywhere to go.
The Solution: Pick clothes with natural fibers (think cotton and bamboo) that breathe so your skin does not suffocate.
Bad Habit – 2: Spraying Perfume
Your perfume can cause skin irritation as well. Ensure to avoid your face when spritzing fragrance. A simple way to do this is always to spray perfume on your wrists (instead of directly on your neck), then rub them against your decolletage and neck to spread the fragrance. Also stay away from bath and shower products with added fragrance.
Bad Habit – 13: Tanning
We’ve all heard that the sun dries out your skin and UV rays have an antibacterial element. But baking in the sun is not a adequate Way to Clear Up Your Acne. And keep in mind, over-drying your skin will cause it to create much more oil, not less.
Also, tanning causes your skin to boost cell production, which means much more dead skin cells – the thing we are trying to prevent. So while you might get a bit clearer at first, tanning will end up giving you a lot more breakouts, in addition to an increased risk of cancer and extra batch of wrinkles when you’re older.
