What does it take to keep acne away? For most people it is as simple as washing the face. Acne is caused by clogged pores and the overproduction of sebum, the natural oil found in the skin. Clogged pores result when dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells and other impurities remain on the face and seep into the oil glands.
Wash, Wash, Wash Away
Washing your face is something that you should already be doing every single day. But you may not be doing it right. Whether you’re not washing your face or not doing it the right way, the information found here will change things. With this information you will know exactly what it takes to keep your pores unclogged and acne out of your life, all by simple washing your face!
First of all, wash your face twice each day. You should wash it in the morning after you get out of the bed, as well as again before you go to bed at night. Use a gentle foaming cleanser or soap for this. If you really want to reduce the chance of acne (or if you are currently experiencing a breakout) many of the facial cleaners out there are made specifically to treat acne. Do not scrub your face. Instead use gently, circular motions. Scrubbing your skin can cause further damage and irritation to the acne and that is not what you want to happen!
After you’re done cleansing your face, take a soft towel and pat it dry. Next, take a moisturizer designed for your skin type and apply it to the face as well as the neck. You are now all set and have done your part in keeping the pores clear and free.
