Sneaky causes of acne no one’s telling you about.

Your drinking habits
Does drinking alcohol cause acne? It certainly does.
Alcohol can disrupt your hormone’s balance and that’s one of the main causes of skin breakouts. In addition to that, drinking booze can cause a spike in your insulin, too.

Traveling
The low humidity inside airplanes can be drying to the skin. This disrupts the skin’s barrier, making it irritated and itchy.
Apart from that, the sudden change in temperature and mineral content of water are common culprits of vacation acne, too.

Your haircut
Technically, there is no wrong haircut. But, if you have acne-prone skin, it’s best to steer clear of hairstyles that will let your hair constantly rub on your skin.
Skip the bangs. At night, pull your hair back as you sleep to keep it out of your face.

You are not washing your hair properly
If your hair is oily, the oils can get on your face and this can trigger breakouts.
To avoid acne breakouts, find the best shampoo for acne-prone skin, wash your hair and then the rest of your body.
This way, the bacteria and dirt from your hair won’t linger on your body.

You’re getting your hair products on your skin
There are ingredients in hair products that can clog pores.
If they ever get in contact with your skin, such as when you’re spraying or applying them, don’t feel surprised if you end up with large zits later.
Layering on too many products can be occlusive to your pores, too. So, instead of spraying them to your hair, apply them with a comb or your fingers.

Your air filtration system at home
If you’ve tried changing everything from your diet to your products and you’re still getting breakouts, perhaps it’s time to check your air filtration system in the Office and in your car. If it’s not regularly cleaned or its filters are not routinely replaced every 90 days, bacteria, dirt and dust can accumulate there and those things won’t be good for your skin.

The sun
A lot of people think that sun exposure can help remedy acne. The truth, however, is that skin darkening due to sun exposure only makes pimples a lot less noticeable.
They’re still there.
In reality, too much sun exposure can actually cause dehydration and this can stimulate an increase in your skin’s oil production. Once the tan fades, you’ll be left with an oilier skin and darker scars.

You have a yeast infection
When your body has yeast overgrowth, its natural ability to fight off infections and bacteria dramatically decreases.
So, if you have existing acne, this can make things worse. And if you don’t, you’re likely to get one.

You have a cold
If you have a cold or any other illness, it’s likely that your immune system will be busy fighting off the infection.
It won’t be as strong in fighting off the acne-causing bacteria on your skin.

PCOS
PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder that creates a disruption in your hormones.
A person who has PCOS is likely to show signs of excess androgen, like infertility, abnormal periods and, yes, acne.
Apart from the actual medical condition, drugs used to treat PCOS, like prednisone, can also trigger breakouts. In some cases, supplements, like fish oil, can help.

Thyroid problems
Hypothyroidism doesn’t directly cause skin to break out, but it’s symptoms do.
Low thyroid hormones can cause dry skin, low levels of progesterone and vitamin A which are common acne culprits.
While you can’t get rid of the acne associated with hypothyroidism without treating the condition first, there are things you can do to lessen the breakouts. One way to start is to use products for acne prone skin.

Menopause
Like puberty, menopause involves changes in hormones. As testosterone levels rise, sebaceous glands are triggered and excessive sebum is produced.
This oily substance blocks the pores, resulting in inflammation and possible infection. The situation gets worse when menopausal acne happens with slower skin cell regeneration because of aging.

Your period
Before and after your menstruation, your body experiences a higher amount of testosterone in comparison with your female hormones. This excess testosterone, much like what happens with hormonal fluctuations, can send your sebaceous glands into overdrive.

Pregnancy
Acne during pregnancy is not uncommon. The high level of androgen during this period is what causes pregnant women to experience skin breakouts.

Your genes
A can also be genetic in nature. This, however, doesn’t mean that you’ll get breakouts right away just because you have the genes.
It just means that you’re more prone and sensitive to acne triggers than other people.

Your pet
Your dog or cat might feel nice to hug and cuddle but think twice about doing that if you have acne-prone skin. You see, your pets can carry loads of critters in their body and these little bugs can crawl on your skin without you noticing them.
Their fur can also carry allergens from plants, chemicals and other animals.

Your boyfriend’s beard
If your skin is sensitive and acne-prone, you might want to spend a lot less time being near your boyfriend’s beard. A hairy face rubbing on your smooth face can cause irritation and friction.
These things can trigger your skin to produce more oil and that’s where the problem starts to happen. If your boyfriend can’t stand shaving, make him use a good antibacterial beard soap at least.

Your bedding
If you have been sleeping on the same sheet and pillow case for quite a while, don’t wonder where you’re getting your acne from. Your beddings and pillow cases can accumulate dead skin cells, dirt and oils from you as you sleep and these things can invite bacterial growth.
Make it a habit to wash your sheets and pillow cases once or twice a week

Sneaky causes of acne no one’s telling you about.

You’re applying thick foundation
Thick foundations are great for coverage, but they don’t spell the same news for acne. Thicker foundations are usually more occlusive, making it hard for your pores to breathe.
Instead of layering too much product, use the best foundations for acne-prone skin instead.

Plus if you are over 45, this is going to happen. Every fine line will be pointed.

For example All nighter from urban Decey is my favourite night out foundation. You can sweat and dance whole night, everything will stay where it should be. But. If you have any wrinkles, stay away from it. Or if you have acne.

You’re using the wrong makeup products
People with acne prone skin can use makeup, provided that they use the right makeup products. Anything that has fragrance, pore clogging ingredients, colorants and petrochemicals can cause mayhem to your skin.

Your clothes are made from synthetic fibers
Unbreathable clothing isn’t just uncomfortable; they can cause painful body acne as well.
Synthetic fibers can mash up dead skin cells and oil together and push them down into your pores. These things can attract bacteria which can aggravate your acne or trigger a new breakout.

Your yoga pants
Yoga pants, no matter how comfortable they are, can cling to your skin and trap bacteria. And if you’ve been wearing them for hours after your workout, you are sure to get a bumpy bottom.
So, if you want to avoid butt acne, make sure to bring an extra clean pair of yoga pants you can change into after your workout.

You keep wearing the same hat
Hats are great for those bad hair days. The same goes for headbands.
But, constantly wearing a hat or headband where makeup and sweat can build up around the rim can cause forehead acne. If you really need to wear a hat, don’t wear it for a full day and make sure you wash it often.

You wear a thong underwear when working out
During a workout, your yoga pants can trap in sweat and oil. If you’re wearing a thong under those pants, you’re not giving your skin any barrier from those acne triggers.

You wear scarves
Do you notice your skin breaking out more during the winter? It’s probably your scarf causing problems.
A scarf that’s wrapped a bit tightly can cause friction and irritation. It can worsen any existing acne you have.
Sensitivity to wool can cause issues, too. If you are feeling itchy and scratchy, it’s time to invest in softer winter scarves.

Your glasses
Glasses can cause acne because they easily get dirty. If you don’t wash and disinfect them or store them in their proper cases when not in use, they can easily accumulate dirt and bacteria.
They can also push heavy makeup into your pores, particularly around the area of the hip frames.

You’re wearing helmet with a chin strap
Helmets can obviously give you some good amount of acne, especially if they are sweaty and dirty. Before you wear one, make it a habit to wipe the straps first with antibacterial wipes.
Don’t forget to wash your face after removing your helmet, too.

Your pillow cover is dirty
Most of the folks will change their beddings once a week. I change my pillow cover every other night, I love to put my face on a fresh cover.

Your tech accessories
If you didn’t get the memo, mobile phones contain much, much more bacteria than your toilet handle. Now, imagine what those bacteria can do to your skin.

Please don’t.

You’re constantly touching your face
There are a lot of things wrong with touching your face.
For one, your hands come in contact with millions of bacteria from your phone, computer, door knob and all sorts of things. Touching your face with your dirty hands can mean transfer of those bacteria.
Touching can also lead to picking. And when you pick at your pimples, you run the risk of making things worse (read: scars).

Your schedule
Having a very busy schedule can put a lot of stress on your skin. You’ll get less sleep, you’ll crave for sweets and you’ll have no time to do a proper skin care routine.
The more stressed you become, the more your acne gets worse.
So, take time off of your busy schedule to relax. Try meditating or working out.
You can also consider talking to your doctor about medicines that can help with your sleeping disorder. Adderall is good but take note that it can possibly trigger breakouts, too.

Sneaky causes of acne no one’s telling you about.

You’re taking steroids
Acne is one of the most common side effects of abusing steroids. Breakouts related to the intake of this artificial hormone typically happens in the back, face and shoulder. When you take too much steroids, it tricks your body into believing it has more male hormones than it actually does. The “excess’ male hormones trigger more sebum production.

Also if you are drinking after workout protein shakes, which i love. Your acne may come from this. I really love my coconut white chocolate or berries shake, but if you sufer from acne, watch out.

Apart from the medications mentioned above, there are tons of prescription medications that can also cause acne. The list includes antituberculosis drugs, halogens and anti-epileptics.
Technically, medications that can affect the immune system and stimulate insulin have the potential to trigger skin breakouts.

You’ve just started your acne medications
Usually, before acne gets better, it gets worse first.
There are acne medications that stimulate skin cell turnover to unclog pores and remove acne-causing bacteria. As the process takes place, inflammation is brought up and flare up happens.

You’re on birth control pills
Birth control pills, specifically those that contain progestin, are likely to cause acne because they are considered androgenic. They can stimulate increased sebum production which can cause bacteria to increase in number.

You’re using to cheap cosmetics
Cheap makeup products come at a ridiculously low price for a reason. They aren’t made from high-quality and safe ingredients and they’re not produced in a sterile environment. Some of them can even contain banned ingredients.
Because of how poorly they are made, fake cosmetics don’t only put you at risk of skin breakouts, they can also cause chemical burns, dermatitis and eye infection.

You’re not cleaning your makeup sponges and brushes
Makeup tools can harbor loads of bad bacteria and they can pick up dead skin cells. If they aren’t cleaned on a regular basis, there’s no chance for you to get clearer skin.
Ideally, you should clean your makeup brushes once a week, at minimum. They should be kept in an area where there’s free air flowing so bacteria won’t grow in them.

Sneaky causes of acne no one’s telling you about

Which food cause acne???

Studies show dairy products and high glycemic foods, however, can trigger acne

 

Avoid long hot water showers, consuming too much dairy and junk, skipping moisturizing because you have oily skin and popping zits

Spicy food can make things worse

Don’t skip your meals – your blood glucose rises and your body experiences a significant change in your hormones, including insulin. Once insulin increases, it will trigger your ovaries to produce more testosterone which can result in not just acne, but weight gain, too.

If you have acne, try gluten free for a month


It turns out that chocolate has the potential to cause acne because of its high sugar content. The quick sugar rush it gives can cause mayhem in your skin.

Vitamin D is an important vitamin for the function of several tissues in the body, including the skin. It protects them from bacterial irritation which, in essence, means decreasing the chances for your pores to become inflammatory zits.

When you don’t have as much vitamin D, you become at risk of zits.

Caffeine has an effect on your stress hormones. The more caffeine you consume, the more your stress hormones can get triggered.

These hormones, in turn, can initiate an inflammatory response and increase in your sebum production.

When you don’t moisturize, you are practically depriving your skin the moisture it needs to protect itself and carry on its functions. So, what it does is produce more sebum to “compensate” for the moisture it “lost”.

Too much oil on an acne-prone skin is never good

Whether you like it or not, acne can happen on your back, too. That’s because you also sweat and produce oil there. And, unlike the zits you can get on your face and neck, back acne tends to be more painful and bigger.

Regular bath soaps can be overly drying. So, instead of doing your skin a favor by cleansing it, you’re actually doing more harm.

Using wrong make up remover.
Unfortunately, some formulas tend to be damaging to the skin, like those non-rinse type. Since you’re not required to wash it off, makeup residues, dirt and oil can remain on the surface of your skin and clog your pores.

You’re using the wrong sunscreen. Wearing sunscreen before heading outdoors is non-negotiable. You can’t forgo protection just because you are breaking out. If you are constantly having zits every time you’re wearing SPF, you’re probably using the wrong formula or the wrong ingredients.
