How to Stop Acne Before it Starts
There’s nothing worse than waking up and looking in the mirror only to see a fresh breakout on your skin. Once those blemishes show up, they’re difficult to get rid of and often leave telltale scars behind. Fighting acne can seem like an uphill battle with no end in sight! No one has perfect skin—that’s the bad news. The good news is that you may have more control over your acne than you actually think. Let’s look at a few simple ways that you can stop acne naturally.
Wash…and wash again!
Are you afraid of over-washing? Don’t be. Especially before and after working out, take the time to cleanse your skin of dirt and excess makeup, as sweat mixed with these impurities clogs pores and creates a breeding ground for blemishes. And of course, it’s important to begin and end your day by gently washing your face. If you’re a gym rat, that means that you’ll likely be washing your face several times each day. That’s ok! Just be sure to use a gentle cleanser free of alcohol or other harsh ingredients. Look for cleansers with natural ingredients that hydrate and nourish your skin while they clean.
