Lifestyle habits as well as dietary habits can be used as parameters to both control and prevent acne. Acne can be treated by high-quality skin care or via medicated treatments prescribed by a cosmetic surgeon or a dermatologist.
Acne can be controlled and prevented by keeping the skin clean and healthy. This can be done by using a mild face wash or a cleanser for removing make-up or after coming from work or outside. Also, washing the face with either ice cold or lukewarm water regularly can help keep the skin fresh and spotless; it also helps remove dirt and air transmitted bacteria from the surface of the skin. A good moisturizer must be used at night and a sunscreen during the day time. This help to minimize any damage to the skin and keeps the skin soft and smooth. Stimulants such as over-consumption of tea, coffee, alcohols and sweets should be avoided; oily and fatty foods must also be avoided. Instead, a lot of fluids, fibers and fruits rich in mineral and vitamins should be eaten.
With the development of the fashion world, putting on layers of make-up is the recent trend. It must be borne in mind that the over use of make-up and other chemical products ruin the face’s natural glow and texture. So, be simple, natural and look beautiful!
