Some of the Causes of Acne

Acne can be a serious malaise if left untreated. But more important aspect is that one should try not to get acne at all. There are some essential factors to take into account so as to prevent acne from occurring.

  • Basically acne occurs due to faulty diet and lifestyle. When we eat more of faulty foods like pizza, burger, chips etc they become a leading factor in causing acne. So, if you are suffering from acute acne, make sure you stay away from such foods.
  • Dehydration too might be a cause of acne. Most of the time due to lack of water in the body, acne or pimples may come out. Drink plenty of water because it helps your body to get rid of unwanted toxins and thereby keeps the skin clean and clear.
  • Sometimes, we go to bed without washing the face. This too might be a cause of acne. At times due to the leftover makeup on your face or due to dirt on the skin, acne might occur. So, always clean your face before going to bed.
  • Avoid using soap on the face, rather go for face wash which are soft on the skin. Facial cleansers are said to be mild on the skin and hence it is better to use them.
  • Pricking or squeezing your pimples is a big no no. This could sometimes lead to the infection getting spread to other parts of the skin too. Never touch the acne.
