OUR TOP FIVE TIPS FOR ACNE PREVENTION
Try our five hot tips for keeping acne at bay:
1. Go easy with your make-up
A thick layer of makeup, or any oil-based makeup, can block your pores and cause an acne breakout.
2. Be diligent when you sweat
While you can’t always control the temperature, you can always wash your face thoroughly or use an anti-blemish wipe after sweating heavily.
Excessive sweating can contribute to acne flaring up.
3. Pin it back
If you have a fringe or your hair usually touches your face, try pinning it back.
Hair on your face can cause more oil to accumulate on your skin and acne can appear.
4. Use the right skin care products
If you have oily skin, always use water-based skin care products designed for acne-prone skin and avoid anything oil-based.
NIVEA’s Clean Deeper Daily Wash Face Scrub can help prevent acne by removing excess oil from your skin.
Whichever product you use, always follow the directions and avoid over-cleansing.
5. Quit the sweet stuff
Many people report results of clearer, blemish-free skin while following diets low in sugar.
While these claims haven’t been medically proven, it certainly won’t hurt to give up processed food, if you want to give it a try.
THE BEST ACNE TREATMENT
Treating acne is a little trickier than preventing it.
In most cases, soothing and cleaning the affected area followed by waiting for the acne to go away naturally, is the best acne treatment.
Here are our simple tips for treating mild and severe acne:
TREATMENT FOR MILD ACNE
However, you can speak with your doctor or pharmacist about over-the-counter acne treatments suited to your skin type. Most of these treatments work by cleansing the affected area to remove the excess oil.
TREATMENT FOR SEVERE ACNE
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
