Tips for Acne Prone Skin
It’s one of the most embarrassing, and unfortunately, inevitable things that could happen to anyone: an acne pimple popping out on your face. So when a zit rears its ugly head, what do you usually do?
Chances are, many of the things you do during a breakout are something that can only make it worse. We know this because, at a certain point in our lives, we were guilty of doing them, too. Here are some of those acne no-nos people commit on a regular basis.
Picking and poking and popping
We don’t need a medical degree to know that popping a zit is a huge mistake, but most of us do it anyway. It damages skin tissue, for one thing. Bacteria from your fingers plus rupturing the follicle wall could spread the infection and cause more zits to pop up. When the popped pimples finally heal, you’re often left with pimple scars.
Never pop your zits.
You wash your face too much, too often
Washing your face is good, but only if you don’t overdo it. Do it more than two times a day, and your skin will dry out, which will stimulate oil production and cause more breakouts.
Washing your face with lukewarm water twice a day is ideal. Be sure to tone afterward with a natural toner like our Organic Rose Water Toner and follow with a moisturizing oil like our Anti-aging Rosehip Night Serum.
