5 Habits to Help You Avoid Acne

1. Take high-glycemic foods off your plate

Researchers are finding  that high-glycemic foods like white breads, potato chips, french fries, pasta, and others containing processed flours and sugars are linked to acne formation. How much of these foods are you eating each day? Cut down on them and add more whole grains and fresh produce. You may see a difference.

2. Change your pillowcase every few days

Gross alert! Your pillowcase is covered with your skin oil and dead skin cells. Changing it out and washing it frequently gets rid of all that pore-clogging debris that would otherwise press right back into your pores as you sleep.

3. Pat your face dry

Wash your face very gently, and don’t wash it more than twice a day.  And when it comes to drying, a little dabbing will do it. Using a clean towel, dab your face dry instead of wiping. Wiping will just spread the dirt and oil instead of removing it from your face.

4. Keep your fingers off your face

Admittedly, it’s a hard habit to break. But touching your face is a great way to trigger acne. Your fingers transfer excess skin oil to your face whenever they touch it, and that can lead to more clogged pores. Pay attention to how often you find yourself touching your face, and start reminding yourself to keep those fingers away.

5. Use a proven daily acne prevention regimen.

The right acne prevention regimen is crucial in keeping a clear, calm complexion day after day.
