Birth control can both be a cause and a preventative treatment for acne. For many adult women, going on the pill is to treat their adult acne. The pills contain hormones that can help the female’s own hormones find balance and some get clearer skin out of this. Many times though, when they get off of the pill, this can cause they’re hormones to go haywire and they can start breaking out again.
Avoid facial products that are not hypoallergenic. Those with particularly fair or sensitive skin can be more prone to acne and other blemishes. Products that are not specially formulated for sensitive skin can sometimes end up doing more harm than good. Avoid any products that seem to irritate your skin.
If you are currently using products to help with the treatment of acne, remember to take into account the frequency of your application. Excessive application of acne products can actually exacerbate the problem, causing more acne in place of the clear skin you are trying to achieve. Follow the instructions, and with patience you will be on your way to better skin.
To get rid of acne, try not to have anything brush against your face repeatedly. Perhaps your hair cut causes your hair to touch your face and render it greasy. Avoid wearing scarves or hats, too. Do your best to keep your hands away from your face, especially if your hands are dirty.
Eating healthy is a good way to prevent acne. Meanwhile, it hasn’t been scientifically proven that eating a lot of chocolate or oily food, can increase your chance of acne. To make sure you have a clear and healthy complexion, try to eat less oily and fatty foods. Drinking less coffee and drinks with caffeine, is another way to reduce your chance of acne development.
Drink apple cider vinegar to reduce acne breakouts, eczema, or other skin conditions. Apple cider vinegar may be hard to drink by itself, but try adding it to a blended fruit smoothie to get all the effects without the harsh taste. In addition to clearer skin, you may notice silkier hair and shinier nails.
If you are a woman using the pill Accutane (or any of its generic forms) to treat your acne, make sure that you avoid pregnancy during your treatment period. Make sure you have a second form of protection against pregnancy such as birth control. If you take the pill for acne and get pregnant, your baby has a high risk of being deformed.
