Acne has become one of the most common problems that everyone faces in today’s world. But what causes acne?
Acne is caused due to sebum, an oily layer of dirt and sweat particles that clog the pores of the skin. It is also caused when dead skin cells are generated on the skin. Other causes of acne are skin inflammation, formation of bacterias that results in acne.
But there are many ways through which we can reduce acne or try to avoid getting acne. Some steps are given below:
- Wash your face in morning and night:
Washing your face twice a day is essential to prevent any type of skin problem. Acne is caused because of the dirty oily surface forms on the skin. So if you have oily skin, wash your face twice a day, to remove excess oil and also dirt. Even if you have dry skin, wash your face twice but don’t forget to moisturize your face after cleaning. Use a cleanser for good results and moisturize your skin. Washing your face at night is way more important as it will help to remove all dirt from your face that has been stuck throughout the day.
Don’t wash your face many times as it may cause dryness to your skin. If you are feeling that your face is oily excessively, use wet wipes instead. Don’t be harsh by scrubbing your face while face washing, as it may cause breakouts. Just use your hands or use a gentle brush intended to use on your face.
- Your hair should be clean to avoid acne:

Shampooing your hair and keeping your hair clean is another best way to avoid acne especially around the hairline.

- Try to use products that tend to reduce acne:
There are many products available in the market nowadays that will help to reduce or recover from acne. The products are usually in the form of serums or lotions, which can reduce breakouts. Usually, these types of products contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, as these are good to fight against acne or any skin problems.
