7 ways to prevent adult acne

Do you agree that pimples cause depressive states at any age? They are most common at 12-25, when oil glands are most active, but you can be affected at any age.
The good news is that there is a chance to avoid breakouts. Just use these simple rules:

  1. Cut down your sugar intake. 
    Pay attention what you eat! Sugars are all simple carbohydrates. When you eat sugary foods it can cause fluctuations in your blood sugar levels and as a consequence increase sebum production. To use them is the quickest way to get energy, but at the same time they are enemies for our skin.
    So, avoid foods that are high-glycemic and proinflammatory like: candies, ice cream, fruit juice, white bread, fried food, white and brown sugar, pasta, ketchup, jam, pizza and snacks. The healthiest food for skin is fresh vegetables & fruits, healthy fats, proteins and whole grains.

  2. Stop touching your face
    Be attentive! Each time you touch your face it increases the chance of breakouts caused by bacteria and dirt. Try to keep your hands away from your face, don't squeeze whiteheads. Squeezing may provoke further inflammation and increasing the risk of permanent scars.
  3. Reduce sweating
    Humid days and sweaty skin increases pore blockages and can cause outbreaks.
    So, keep sweat to a minimum level. You can use a cool spray, also after work out clean your skin with a gentle cleanser.
  4. Skip exfoliation
    For most acne-prone skin exfoliation is the worst way, because this procedure irritates your skin and provokes inflammation. Avoid all scrubbs! Our advice to you, use non-soap skin cleanser. Another way to clean and disinfect the skin is a non-abrasive scrub, containing salicylic or boric acid.
  5. Avoid stress
    Scientific researches have found a direct link between adult breakouts and stress. When your body is stressed, it impacts on the hormonal system which can lead to acne. Therefore, find the ways to reduce stress and relax with help of activity that can balance you, such as yoga and meditation.
  6. Don’t believe the myths
