5 Powerful Tips to Prevent Acne

5 Powerful Tips to Prevent Acne

Anyone with acne can understand how much struggle it requires to treat acne entirely. Treating acne not only says to reduce the present ones but also to reduce their recurrence.

Pimples can happen anywhere in the body, but majorly they occur on the face. The acne-causing bacteria causes inflammation when sebum (the oil found naturally on the skin) turns to fatty acids. While there is no sure-shot way to get rid of acne forever and completely, you can definitely prevent the occurrence of acne and keep your skin as healthy as possible.

Here are the 5 ways to prevent acne from facial skin.

Know Your Skin Type

Understanding your skin type is very crucial in deciding the products to use and avoid. Using wrong products usually creates more mess than making the situation better. You can use the following parameters to identify which skin type you may have:

  • Dry Skin - Skin feels tight and flaky
  • Oily Skin - Skin looks shiny and appears to be greasy at the later part of the day.
  • Combination Skin - Your T-zone is oily and your cheek area is dry.
  • Sensitive Skin - Skin gets quickly irritated and inflamed.

In general, oily skin types are more prone to acne; however, even dry skin can also get acne.


Wash Your Face Properly

It is important to remove excess oil, sweat, and dirt from the face to prevent acne. Therefore, wash your face properly using mild cleansers that are sulphate-free, fragrance-free, and gentle to use twice daily.

Washing your face excessively can also make the situation worse. It rips off the natural oil from the skin causing dryness and irritation. Moreover, using harsh and chemical-based cleansers or astringents can also dry the facial skin.

To wash your face:
Wet your face warm water - NO hot water, please!
Apply a mild face cleanser on the face, giving a circular motion using fingers.
Rinse thoroughly your face and pat dry.


Limit Makeup

The application of makeup more often can make your skin more vulnerable to acne and other skin-related problems. Makeup clog pores and trigger outbreaks, thus, using makeup to cover pimples can make the situation even worse.

However, occasional makeup is not a bad choice. Use those cosmetic products that are non-comedogenic and fragrance-free, so that your skin doesn’t become more irritated.

“Be sure to gently wash your fash once you’re done with the requirement of makeup. This is important especially before you go to sleep at night.”



Limit Sun Exposure

Sun rays are helpful in terms of Vitamin D, but excessive amounts of exposure can lead to major problems in long run. Frequent sun exposure can dehydrate the skin leading to producing more oil and blocking skin pores.

Wear sunscreen to protect your skin from any sun damage. Though many sunscreen products are oily, pick those that are oil-free and non-comedogenic.


Try Essential oils

Essential oils are a popular natural remedy for pimples. Out of several, Tea tree, oil is majorly used for the treatment of acne. It has some natural compounds that kill certain bacterias and viruses and also promote the healing of acne.

Ideally, essential oils should not be used undiluted, but before their first application, a patch test is essential to see if it irritates your skin.



Everyone gets acne and there are many factors that cause them, such as hormones, stress, genetics, and diet. Some medications may even trigger breakouts. Prevention efforts help, but they aren’t foolproof.

Whatever pimple prevention plan you choose, patience and consistency are key. There are many good ways to prevent acne and also to manage them. For instance, eating a healthy diet, reducing stress, and not popping pimples may help reduce and reduce their reoccurrence.
