Did you know that acne prone people are born with four or five times more skin cells and produce more oil than the average person?
Whilst this may be the initial root of the problem, if you suffer from acne, there may be other things are doing to irritate your skin.
- Using make up or skin care products containing known acne offenders such as: artificial colours and fragrances, lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum and Isoproply Myristate.
- Over drying your face with harsh cleansers, soap and alcohol based toners. Always be gentle with your skin and use a light oil free moisturizer.
- Applying too much pressure to your skin – such as pressing your mobile against your skin or always resting on your hand. This exposes your skin to millions of bacteria.
- Not changing your bedding and towels often enough. Change your pillow case at least once a week and your face towel or cloth daily.
Don’t forget these tips, and your skin will thank you for it!
