Acne Prevention And Regular Skin Care

Acne is a common skin disease that can affect people from all walks of life. An acne outbreak can be identified by the presence of pimples, blackheads, cysts or unusual skin eruptions. The disease is incurable, but symptoms can be controlled by various means including, medicated cleansers, topical preparations, antibiotics and surgical procedures. Acne can spoil a persons appearance, rendering them self conscious even to the extent of becoming introverted. A serious outbreak of acne can also destroy a young person’s social and personal lifestyle, as well as hinder their professional career.

The first steps in avoiding the consequences of an acne outbreak is to adopt a healthy lifestyle and establish a daily skin care regimen. Cleanliness is an important factor in avoiding or treating acne. Wash the skin gently with cool water and a good quality cleanser twice daily without fail. Should any sign of acne appear, take action immediately to halt the infection. Become aware of natural or over the counter products that will prevent skin pores from becoming clogged, and use antibacterial cleansers to destroy bacteria before it can cause any problems. Apply a mild astringent lotion if the skin appears to be excessively oily and use protective creams before commencing work or performing outdoor activities.

People that need to wear make up, should choose products that are gentle and suitable for their skin type. It is best not to leave make up on for any longer than necessary, so it is a good idea to remove it soon after arriving home. Use a good quality make up remover and wash the face thoroughly, then dab the skin dry using a soft towel. If you are living in a hot humid place, take a cool shower before bed time to rinse away sweat and any dead skin cells.

When acne symptoms are present, there are several basic things that can be done to control the outbreak and stop it from spreading. Keep your hair and your hands off your face, and do not squeeze any pimples. Wear a clean change of clothes every day, and sleep in fresh pyjamas every night, turn the pillow case over after use and wash it every other day. If the body is in contact with the bed sheets, then they should be turned every day and washed every second day.

These are just a few basic sanitary precautions that will prevent bacteria from spreading to other parts of the body. Of course, if the acne outbreak persists and continues to develop, then a health care professional should be consulted.
