The Leading Cause Of Your Acne: You!
Are you sick of losing your battle with acne? Well, you may have nobody to blame but yourself. As it turns out, you could be the leading cause of your acne. Not you personally, but your habits at the very least. For starters, do you know what's in your cosmetics? Expert dermatologists Tony Nakhla and Ava Shamban spoke to totalbeauty.com and explained that some of the leading ingredients that cause irritation to the skin are artificial color, lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum, isopropyl myristate and artificial fragrances. All of these additives could actually put you in a sticky situation by irritating the skin or increasing oil production. Are you one of those people who load up on cleansers? If you are, lay off. Sure, those cleansers will dry out your skin, but this will only cause the body make even more oils, which leads to acne. Invest in products that cater to acne-prone skin. Also, be sure to use a moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated at all times. Just because you have oily skin doesn't mean you should skip the moisturizer.
