If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic acne breakouts you have most likely done everything you can to rid yourself of the problem. Luckily, companies such as Lira Clinical have created lines of skin care treatments that will clear up your skin and aid in returning your healthy complexion. But, there are still behaviors in your daily routine that may be causing breakouts without you realizing it. Here are just a few examples of acne causing habits to avoid.
1. Overexposure to the Sun
As we have mentioned before, the sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause several different skin afflictions. What we have not covered is that beyond breaking down collagen and giving you sun burn, the sun can actually increase the amount of acne you develop. Scientists say that over the span of several years a somewhat consistent exposure to the sun’s rays can increase your skin’s natural oil production, clogging up your causing breakouts. Make sure you choose a sunscreen that was made to both protect and enrich your skin so you know it won’t cause oily skin.
2. Your Pillow
How often do you wash you pillow case? Probably about as much as you wash the rest of your bedding which, unless you do so every night, is not enough when it comes to fighting the acne causing bacteria that can build up on your pillow case. Even if you thoroughly wash your hair and face nightly, when you lay your head on your pillow to sleep your pillow still collects the remaining oil and bacteria from your skin and hair. Also, any products you apply to your hair or face can build up on your pillow case and eventually become problematic to your complexion. It is recommended that you lay a clean towel or piece of clothing over your pillow each night to ensure that you are not rubbing your face on the buildup from nights past.
Whenever you carry an excess amount of stress with you it not only effects you mentally and emotionally, it can also have negative physical effects, one of which being acne breakouts. Certain chemicals (adrenal androgens and glucocorticoids) are released when you become stressed which activate oil glands and effectively clog pores causing breakouts. So do your best to clear as much stress out of your life as possible before it causes more acne which will only add to your stress.
