How to Prevent Pimples?
Wash your face
To help prevent pimples, it is necessary to remove excess oil, dirt, and sweat daily.
Washing your face more than twice a day will make acne worse.
Don’t wash your face with harsh, dry skin cleansers.
Try to use an alcohol-free cleaning agent.
Know your skin type
Anyone can get pimples, no matter what kind of skin they have.
The oily skin is the most pulp-prone.
It’s caused by the sebaceous glands of your skin that contain too much oily sebum.
Knowing your skin type will help you select the best skincare items for your skin.
For example, if your skin is oily, choose non-comedogenic products that are formulated not to obstruct pores.
If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them regularly to prevent the oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose.
Say No to Exfoliating
If you have active acne stop using face scrubs for a while till the acne heals.
Do not wipe your face with cloth pads or washcloths.
Scrubbing already irritated skin induces more inflammation and exacerbates pimples or acne breakups.
Keep your facial accessories clean
If you’re using makeup brushes, beauty blenders, facial cleaning brushes, make sure to keep them clean.
Using unclean accessories that contain germs can cause acne and pimples.
Wash them thoroughly for every use.
