Usually acne is caused by overactive oil glands in the skin and an accumulation of oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. All this factors lead to clogged pores and appearance of pimples.
Usually oil glands release more sebum during puberty, which is the most prone period for acne occurrence. Acne also depends on genetics. If your mother or father, or even grandparents had or have acne, it is most probably that you also have acne.
Although you can’t prevent acne for sure, there are several tips that help reduce the severity of acne. Washing your skin is essential, but you must not over wash because this can over dry your skin. It is also very important to wash yourself after exercise, because sweat, excess oils and dead skin cells can clog your pores.
You also must be cautious what skin products and cosmetics you use, depending on your skin type. If you have an oily skin you must apply products that don’t moisturize skin, because if your skin becomes oilier you can end up with more acne outbreaks. If you have a dry skin, you must use oily lotions that moisturize your skin and help it be healthy again.
Also you must be sure that your hair styling sprays and gels do not touch your face, because they may contain oils that can make your acne get worse.
Also if you suffer from back, chest or shoulders acne you must wear cotton garments and avoid wearing tight clothes, because they may irritate the skin.
