1) Know your Enemy (Acne)
The first rule of war is to know your enemy; what does it want? Why is it here? What are its weaknesses?
Knowing the reasons of your breakout can really help you win the fight. For example, if you find out that the cause of your acne is poor hygiene, then you can get rid of it simply by taking care of your hygiene.
And the same goes for the acne due to dairy foods, fast foods, stress, etc. etc.
But in the situations where preventions do not work in avoiding getting acne, for example Hormonal Acne, then there are other solutions available in the name of Home Remedies, Medical Remedies, and Drugs.
2) Stop your Enemy from Conquests (Avoid Getting Acne)
There are certain things you can do to avoid or stop getting acne:
Keep your Skin Clean
So, the first step for your victory is the cleanliness of your skin with a gentle cleanser.
Make sure to use your hands softly and not to irritate the populated pimples on your skin because you will awake a sleeping tiger and you don’t want more problems, do you?
Use Non-Oily Skin Products
Keep in mind that if you have an oily skin, then consider using non-comedogenic skin products in which water or minerals are used instead of oil.
As mentioned earlier, Oil plays an important role in getting your skin pores clogged.
Never Ever Pop a Pimple
I know it feels good by touching pimples, but do you know that this practice of yours can transfer the germs all over your skin?
Popping or Picking at pimples comes later; Experts don’t recommend even touching them!
What happens when you Pop a pimple?
When the pore gets blocked, the bacteria, pus, and the dead skin cells team up inside the pores.
The bacteria then multiply, and the pore gets larger and larger.
When you try to squeeze or pop a pimple, the pore inside your skin can get burst and the trapped bacteria and the dead skin cells can make their way out and can affect the surrounding of your skin.
Popping a pimple can also increase the chances of leaving a scar.
Get your Beauty Rest
Improper or Incomplete sleep can also play its part in outbreaks. Experts suggest an undisturbed sleep for 7-8 hours per 24 hours.
Studies have shown that stress is a primary reason of getting acne because it messes up your hormones. And when the hormones get disturbed, pimples are often produced on the skin.
Relieve your stress by talking to your loved ones, visiting your favorite places, meditation technique, or exercise, etc.
