How to prevent pimples? Pimples can be simple to avoid, if you know what can cause them. It is easier to take preventive steps and keep them at bay rather than wait for them to go away.
The good part is that preventing pimples isn’t all that difficult. All you need is a little discipline and regularity. Once you make it part of your routine, it will eventually become second nature.
Pimples: How and Why?
Pimples usually and most commonly appear on the parts of the body that are in contact with the hair. So that makes the face, neck, chest and back more prone to pimples.
Your scalp has several skin glands beneath the hair follicles, which secrete an oily substance known as sebum. These glands exist beneath the facial skin as well. When the glands become overactive and produce excess sebum, it shows up as pimples on your forehead and face.
How You Can Prevent Pimples
Wash Your Hair Regularly:
Sebum is produced in your scalp, remember? So you need to keep that scalp clean. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week to ensure that the oily sebum is not creeping on to your forehead and neck. Don’t leave oil on your head for too long. Cover your oiled hair with a head band.
Use a Face Wash and Scrub Everyday:
It is important to remove dead skin cells from your face. These dead cells can combine with the sebum on your face and clog your skin pores. Blocked skin pores can cause a breakout.
To keep your face clean, choose a face wash that is suitable to your skin type. Wash your face and neck thoroughly. Then use the facial scrub (pack) to remove dead skin. Pat your face dry when done.
Wash Your Face After Cooking or Cleaning:
If you have been dusting furniture or deep frying in the kitchen, be sure to wash your face after you are done. You don’t want any of that oil on your face or bacteria in your pores. Avoid touching your face with your hands while dusting or if you have touched dusty surfaces.
