					Easy Tips For Preventing Acne Breakouts

If you have acne you are certainly not alone. Most people have to deal with the implications of acne at one
point in their life or another, but if you have been suffering for a while now, there are things you can do to
alleviate your symptoms. Continue reading this article to learn how to treat your acne so that it is no longer
a problem in your life.

While you surely know that it is important to keep your face clean whether or not you are dealing with acne,
but you will need to figure out what needs to change if you do. If you are suffering from acne you should wash
your face at least twice each day, but three times each day is ideal if you can make the time.

As important as it is to keep your face clean, it is just as important to not wash it too often, as this will
dry it out and leave your skin more susceptible to acne breakouts. When cleaning your face use very warm water
and a mild soap. If you have sensitive skin be sure to use a product that matches your skin's needs. Using too
harsh of a cleanser for your skin will do more harm than good.

A bad habit that many people have is touching their face with their hands. Touching your face puts oils and
dirt onto your face, which can, of course, lead to acne breakouts. Avoid touching your face as much as you
can. As stated before, for many people this becomes a habit, and can be a very hard one to break. The best
thing you can do is to be conscience of what you are doing with your hands at all times. Once you have stopped
yourself from touching your face for at least three weeks you have likely broken the habit.

If you have acne you should not refrain from using lotion, but instead be careful of type types of lotions you
choose. Absolutely avoid any lotion that has any type of oil in its ingredients. It is also best to use
lotions made of all natural ingredients. For many people the harsh chemicals that are contained in lotion
cause more damage to their skin than help moisturize it.

If you are unsure of what lotions are good for your skin, there are countless resources online that you can
use to learn as much as possible about safe lotions. You can also research consumer reviews to learn which
products have worked well for others who also suffer from acne.

Be sure to only get a moderate amount of sun. Too much sun exposure will damage your skin, and increase your
risk of having a breakout. Too little sun is also not good, as the sun is a natural source of vitamin D. So,
be sure to get some sun on a regular basis without overdoing it.

Now that you have read the facts about treating acne you should now be more prepared to tackle the condition
on your own. Put these tips to use to get the best results while fighting your acne.
