One of the best ways of preventing acne is by doing everything in your power to prevent it from spreading. Let us take a look at how we can prevent your acne from spreading;
Too much oil and dirt on your skin is one of the main culprits for the outbreak of acne. By keeping your skin free from excessive oils and dirt, you will in effect minimize the outbreak from occurring, or at least prevent it from spreading.
Avoid wearing makeup that is oil based. Use water based makeup instead. This will ensure that your face is not covered with excessive oils. Clean all your makeup off your face before you go to bed. This will ensure that pores of your skin are not blocked by the makeup and dirt that might have been collected from it. If possible, avoid wearing makeup at all, or at least go easy on it.
Do not use oil based moisturizer on your skin. Once again, all you are doing is adding excess oils to your skin, which in turn will potentially cause an outbreak of acne.
Change your pillow case with a new one every few days. That way you will not be sleeping on a pillowcase that has been collecting all the oils and dirt from your skin during the last few nights.
A little common sense can go a long way in preventing your acne from spreading. However, the best way of treating your acne problem is by consulting your doctor. That way, he or she is able o prescribe the right treatment for your skin.
