How can you avoid acne infections with simple skin care techniques?

Do you know that just by following some simple skin care techniques you
can avoid the problem of acne? Here are those techniques. Follow these
suggestions and stay away from acne.

Regularly wash your face

Wash your face with a mild cleanser three times a day. Also wash your
face after heavy exercise. Generally, some people with acne try to stop
outbreaks and oil production by scrubbing their skin using strong
detergent soaps and rough scrub pads. Though scrubbing will not improve
acne; it can make the problem worse. Importantly, don’t forget to rinse
your skin after washing.

Shaving and acne

Those who have acne can use electric or safety razor which is more
comfortable for them. Guys who use a safety razor should use a sharp
blade. They should soften their beard thoroughly with soap and water
before applying shaving cream. Nicking blemishes can be avoided by
shaving lightly and only when necessary.

Don’t handle your skin frequently

People who squeeze, pick or pop their zits develop scars or dark blotches
on their face. They should also avoid rubbing and touching their skin
lesions.

Avoid sunburn and suntan

Many of the medications used to treat acne can make a person more likely
to sunburn. Sunburn that reddens the skin or suntan that darkens the skin
may make blemishes less visible and make the skin feel drier. But these
benefits are only temporary. And, there are known risks of excessive sun
exposure such as more rapid skin aging. There is risk of developing skin
cancer too.

Tips for choosing makeup

If you are getting treatment for acne you need to change some of the
cosmetics you use. Cosmetics you use should be oil free. It will be hard
to apply foundation evenly during the first few weeks of treatment. It is
because the skin becomes red or scaly with the use of topical tretinoin
or benzoyl peroxide. Oily hair products may eventually spread over the
forehead and cause closed comedones. So it is advisable to use products
that are labeled as noncomedogenic. And, in some people, even these
products may cause acne. So it is necessary to take extra care with
makeup.
