Have you noticed lately your skin is breaking out? Pimples happen no matter your age, in fact, adult acne affects about 50 million Americans and is the top skin concern in the nation according to American Academy of Dermatology.
Sometimes it’s hard to know why pimples pop up, but if you answer yes to any of these questions below, we can pinpoint the problem and help you find a solution!
Do You Touch Your Face Often?
Touching your face transfers all sorts of dirt, bacteria and grime from your hands, which touch thousands of surfaces a day, and your face. This is easily one of the most common causes of clogged pores.
If you have to touch your face, make sure your hands are washed with soap and water first. Limiting how much you touch your face and making sure your hands are clean will minimize the risk of dirt getting trapped in your pores and becoming a zit.
Do You Skip Washing Your Face?
We cannot emphasize this enough and even mentioned it as one of the most important new year’s resolutions you can make for your skin. If you aren’t cleansing every morning and night, then start doing it right away!!! You’ll notice breakouts improve almost instantly.
When your skin isn’t washed, all those bacteria that you can’t see with your naked eye are making a home in your pores and clogging them up. Cleansing with an oil-based cleanser like our Olive Oil Cleanser works like a magnet to attract dirt and oil and thoroughly clear pores.
Have You Been Eating A Balanced Diet?
What you eat affects your skin just as much as the products you put on them. If you’re still practicing your holiday season eating habits then it’s time to balance that out with some tasty fruit and lots of colorful veggies!
When your body takes in too much of something like dairy or sugar, it can increase oil production leading to clogged pores. By balancing out your diet with skin-centric foods you will see the pimples vanish and it will help keep new ones from appearing.
Skincare is about finding out what is causing the issue and building a suitable attack plan to deal with it. By making some of the simple changes above, or even noticing you’re doing them is half the battle of having beautiful skin!
