Acne is actually one of the hardest things to get rid of on your face, if you know you know. When it does go away, you’ll be left with equally stubborn scars that take weeks or even months to heal. Worst case is when they fade only to come back again... sigh.
How annoying is that?
"What Could I Possibly Have Done To Get Acne?"
Technically, acne forms when sebum (an oily substance that lubricates your hair and skin) and dead skin cells clog your pores, and then voila! You got a pimple.
Certain habits can make acne worse, like:
- Sleeping with makeup on
- Never washing your pillows
- Not showering after any vigorous activities (sweats can trigger acne too!)
- Oily hair, especially when you have bangs
- Picking at your skin (dirty fingers, ew!)
Basically, poor lifestyle habits usually contribute to acne formation on your face. However, sometimes genetics play a part too. So, don't beat yourself up too much if all your effort to clean them up have been to no avail. We've been there, so you are not alone!
Even supermodels like Kendall Jenner has acne, and she's still gorgeous!
"What do I need to do then?"
Well, if you've been doing those acne-causing habits to yourself, then you should quit 'em besties. In terms of skincare, make sure to look for these ingredients before you buy any product, as they're known to effectively treat acne:
> Tea Tree & Peppermint Oil
These two oils are known to have antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to combat acne. both of them can reduce redness, unclog pores to help prevent breakouts, and even aid in the healing of existing breakouts. Top tier ingredients, for sure!
> Vitamin C
Like the oild mentioned above, Vitamin C alsohas anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness and swelling that usually comes with acne. When applied topically, the effects are more noticeable and it helps to lighten acne scars and reduce hyperpigmentation.
> Salicyclic Acid
A holy grail ingredient for clogged pores, salicyclic acid is practically magic. It can also reduce sebum, which means fewer breakouts!
