One of the most asked questions of the skincare age. How to get rid of Acne?

We will get to that but before we do it's important to know that it's perfectly normal to have acne & it should not be perceived as a flaw. All skin is beautiful.

 That being said, just a few changes and healthy habits if inculcated in your lifestyle, can help curb Acne. You don't have to live with it. Treating Acne is in your own hands!

 Let's start off by learning about it.

What is Acne?

Acne arises when there is excess sebum production in your skin. Sebum is the oil produced by the sebaceous glands that lubricate the hair & skin.

In layman's terms, when the oil glands of the skin become clogged or the hair follicles become plugged with oil, dead skin cells or bacteria, it leads to breakouts. It can appear as pimples, whiteheads or blackheads

Why do we get Acne?

There are tons of reasons why you can. The most common is getting it during your teens which is a normal part of puberty.

Another common factor is when you have oily skin. If you don't wash your face regularly it could lead to oil build-up and clogged pores.

 Tips to Avoid Acne

-Reduce your oily food intake and drink loads of water. Include green leafy vegetables and orange coloured fruits and vegetables. Food rich in zinc, vitamin e and antioxidants helps fight acne

-Make sure to wash your face 2-3 times a day. If you apply makeup, make sure to thoroughly remove the makeup with a good cleanser and toner to remove any remaining residue on your skin

-While using a hair spray, do not let the product touch your face or forehead as it can lead to clogged pores. Similarly, while shampooing, do not let the foam bubbles run down your face as it could lead to acne and ageing. If you have long hair, avoid letting it touch your face as the hair products and dirt can sit on your face and lead to breakouts

-Always exfoliate. This will help remove dead cells and excess sebum from your skin. Do not scrub if you already have acne. Acne needs to be handled extremely gently

-Most important, follow a good skincare regime and stick to it!
