How to Get Rid of the Things That Make Your Skin Break

Having a flawless complexion is the dream of most women but only a few actually obtain it. There are countless mistakes people do when it comes to their skincare routine which, in time, can even create more problems than solving the ones that already exist. 

If you’re battling mild acne and can’t seem to get rid of it no matter how many skincare and beauty products you use, perhaps you’re approaching this issue from the wrong angle. Here are the most common things that make your skin break without even noticing and how to avoid them. 

Not using the right products

The cosmetic industry is worth trillions of dollars and counts for millions of products that promise to deliver a flawless, never-aging complexion. Unfortunately, the more products you use, the more you are prone to breakouts and skin irritations. 

Instead of spending your monthly budget on the latest “innovations”, why don’t you stick to the items that already seem to work for you? If you’re having trouble finding the right combination of ingredients, you should seek professional advice. 

Ask a dermatologist about your skin condition and find the perfect derma-cosmetic products to use. Unlike regular cosmetics, derma cosmetics have a limited list of ingredients and are free from chemicals, parabens, and perfumes that can irritate your skin and even cause more breakouts. 

After establishing the right cleaning, toning, and hydrating skin routine, don’t forget to use thermal water to reduce inflammation, redness, and help your complexion heal faster. 

Eating the wrong foods

Your diet can heavily influence the way your skin looks. Foods rich in saturated fats and refined sugars, as well as spicy foods and alcohol, are your skin’s enemies. Some dairy products like cheese or skim milk can also damage your skin and make it more prone to irritations, spots, and redness.

They can all lead to skin unbalances, stimulate sebum production, and cause breakouts, pimples, and even cystic acne. 

If you want to have a flawless complexion without any signs of aging or acne you should pay attention to what you’re eating. 

Replace your bad eating habits with healthier ones, based on the consumption of fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean meat. Don’t forget to hydrate your skin from the inside as well, so drink 65-70 fluid ounces of water daily. 

Putting your dirty hands on your skin all the time 

Washing your hands every time you come in contact with foreign surfaces is impossible but you should be more careful when you touch your skin. It goes without saying that you should wash your hands before and after each meal, as well as whenever you’re coming home. 

Pets can also carry diseases and bacteria that make your skin more sensitive. Choosing to buy flea pills for your cat and grooming its fur regularly won’t mean that you should touch your skin or mouth right after petting it.  The same goes for dogs and all other animals you get in contact with. Wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap each time you touch an animal to stay away from germs and bacteria that might cause your skin to break.
