Sneaky causes of acne
SEE ALSO :Crucial diet tips during menopauseDo you love soaking your hair in heavy pomades and wearing it in styles that come over your forehead? This might be the reason you always have pimples near your hairline or on your forehead. The grease travels from your scalp and hair to the sensitive skin on your face, causing acne breakouts. Switch to lighter hair products and wash your hair more often. Opt for hairstyles such as ponytails, buns and braids that keep hair out of your face. 4. Your phone In today’s world, a phone is an undeniable necessity. We carry them with us wherever we go -- from the bedroom to the boardroom...and even the bathroom! But most of us rarely remember to sanitise our phones, making them a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Whenever you hold your dirty phone up to your cheek, you transfer germs to your skin, which can lead to acne breakouts. To get rid of such acne, you should regularly clean your phone with alcohol-infused wipes. You might also want to consider investing in a bluetooth earpiece. 5. Your supplement Are you a fan of protein shakes to boost your energy after a punishing gym session? This might be one of the sneaky reasons behind your stubborn acne. Protein shakes and bars add more sugars and carbs to your diet than you might realise. The sugars can cause inflammation and pimples. If a protein shake seems to be causing your acne, change brands or stick to natural energy boosters and protein sources. 6. New skincare regimen Have you recently introduced a bunch of new products into your skin care regimen? Instead of getting the immense improvement to your skin, you might get acne breakouts. However, don’t give up on your new products...yet. It’s totally normal for your skin to go through an adjustment period, which can take up to three months.
