Acne is not always a problem that goes away in adulthood. Numerous adults still struggle with acne, and it can be tough finding a suitable skin care regimen to combat breakouts.
All hope is not lost, however. Along with choosing products to cleanse and moisturize your skin, there are other good habits you can adopt to improve the look and texture of your skin naturally. Even better, many of these habits can easily be performed right in the comfort of your own home.
It might not be a very pleasant thought, but it’s certainly true. Your pillowcase can collect a lot of oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria as you sleep peacefully each night. If left to linger on the fabric, these contaminants clog your pores, irritate your skin, and increase the number of pimples you experience. Wash your pillowcase at least once per week to ensure your face has a clean, sanitary place to rest each night.
Acne is a form of skin inflammation, which is why applying ice to pimples is sometimes recommended. Ice can also increase redness and irritate the skin, so salt is a better alternative. Salt also reduces inflamed skin, but it doesn’t cause irritation like ice does. When dealing with breakouts, mix a teaspoon of sea salt with water until a paste is formed. Apply the paste directly to pimples and leave it there for no longer than one hour before rinsing.
You can actually transfer dirt and bacteria to your face when you touch it with your fingers. The best course of action is to refrain from touching your face at all, but this is easier said than done for most people. To prevent breakouts, make a habit of washing your hands as often as possible. Wash hands before eating, after using the restroom, and any other time they’re feeling a bit grimy. Also, carry a travel size bottle of hand sanitizer for those times when you don’t have access to a sink.
