How to Reduce Pimples
Now you know a few ways to get rid of pimples, here’s how you can prevent future breakouts.
Many think that the sun dries out spots but that’s not actually true. Heat and thick sunscreens can in fact lead to increased oil production, causing more breakouts. Try to stay in the shade during the hottest part of the day, approximately 11am to 3pm. You should also opt for an oil-free sunscreen with a high SPF to keep your skin hydrated and protected.
Exercise is great for your skin and whole body. As you exercise, your blood circulation increases. This sends more oxygen to your skin cells and helps remove cellular debris. Exercise also improves your immune system, combatting breakouts. It’s important to shower soon after exercising as the excess oils produced when you sweat can cause more pimples.
Oils from your hair can transfer onto skin, blocking your pores. Washing your hair regularly will keep it free of excess oils and dirt.
- Always Remove Your Makeup
When you have a breakout, heavy foundations and powders can clog your pores. This can worsen your acne, and increase the recovery time. Removing your makeup every night with a gentle cleanser helps your skin to breathe.
- Try Not to Touch Your Face
Your hands are covered in bacteria and oils. If you touch your face with them there’s a risk you could clog your pores, causing further breakouts.
