Zap That Zit: Here's How
Natural, Healthy Habits to Form to Prevent Breakouts
The best natural methods of preventing acne breakouts are less topical and more practical. Drinking plenty of water every day helps keep skin healthy and hydrated, decreasing the risk of infections. Washing your face with a mild cleanser in the morning and evening will remove the daily dirt and oils that build up and can clog pores. Make sure to remove your makeup every night to prevent pore clogging as well.
You should also be aware of just what you're putting on your face. Touching or picking at existing acne will only worsen the problem by increasing bacteria and spreading it to other areas. Wash your hands before touching your face, and try not to aggravate any areas of your skin that have breakouts. Keeping pillow cases and bedding clean and fresh can also help minimize the amount of bacteria and dirt that your face comes in contact with.
