Acne-prone skin has four to five times more skin cells than other skin types. That means you have to be diligent with your skincare, but you also have to be watchful with hair and make-up products, too.
Any hair styling product that has oil, silicones and plasticizers will clog your pores if they get on your skin. So try to steer clear of these products.
Lifestyle habits can be a definite hiding place for acne. Think about it. When was the last time you cleaned those make-up brushes, huh? These tools are crawling with bacteria and dead skin cells, and they are just waiting to create a zit factory on your face!
And smoking? Get this. Researchers at the Gallicano Dermatological Institute in Rome identified non-inflammatory acne to be common among frequent smokers. They also found that teenaged acne smokers were four to five times more likely than non-smokers to have adult acne.
To beat acne you must be informed about the disease and how to conquer it. We encourage you to get chemical peels. Peels are an excellent way to pare down those extra skin cells, reduce oil and give you smoother, younger skin. What a great combination!
