Daily Skin Care For Acne Prevention

daily skin care and acne prevention tips

It used to be thought that problems with sebaceous glands - more commonly known as acne - disappeared not long after adulthood, but that's not really the case. Daily skin care for acne prevention, though, can make a big difference when it comes to avoiding painful or embarrassing facial skin eruptions or pimples. What adult doesn't remember the embarrassment of acne, which usually began at puberty and lasted through the teen adolescent years?

The skin care industry has certainly made untold millions or even billions of dollars off of over-the-counter medications and other acne reducing or eliminating remedies. But what can a person do to ensure that the fear of suffering an outbreak of acne is nothing more than a passing thought? Fortunately, there are any numbers of steps a person can take to stave off this condition.

For starters, realize that a healthy, proper diet that's nutritionally-balanced can make a difference in the fight against acne. Also, pay attention to correct skin care and follow-ups. If your skin feels excessively oily, that may be a sign that the sebaceous glands which lie in the dermal layers of the skin -- especially in and around the facial region - are putting out greater than normal amounts of oily secretions. A good astringent - one that tightens skin pores - used in a regular manner can help keep excess oils from the skin's surface.

As far as skin-care products go, try to avoid oil-based moisturizers, if you can. If your skin feels rough, there are a myriad of oil-free types on the market. Try them first. And make sure you wash your face at least twice daily. You don't have to use a scrub brush when you do so; just a gentle wash and rinse with clean water.

Our ubiquitous wonder substance - water - again comes to the rescue. If you can, try to drink about 8 glasses per day. Water not only is essential to good health, but it helps clear out potential acne-causing oils or other substances, leaving your skin with a clean, healthy glow and a smooth-to-the-touch feeling when you run your hand over your skin.

Try not to squeeze or pop any pimples that still manage to arise. All it does is increase the potential for infection or inflammation around the pimple's surface area. As part of a good diet, which is essential to quality of life anyway, try to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. They help your body maintain a good chemical balance, which will also help prevent possible sebaceous gland inflammations.

Remember that if you do have acne to be careful of how much sun you're exposed to. Its UV radiation can inflame pimples or sores even further. Use a good sunscreen of sufficient SPF strength. A good daily multivitamin also can help to provide essential nutrients that play a part in keeping sebaceous glands in a quiescent state, meaning no acne.

Acne can be embarrassing; especially if you start suffering from it as a fully-grown adult. But daily skin care, combined with a good diet and some common sense precautions, can help to make all the difference in the world. You don't have to just sit quietly and suffer from acne. Be proactive and take steps to do something about it.
