92 Acne Triggers You May Not Know About

by - Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Most of us have been dealing with acne since teenage years, and we have been told about tonnes of remedies to treat them. But, prevention is always better than cure. There are a lot of things in our life that we thought could never be the cause of our acne, so I would suggest you all to think again. If you are suffering from acne that never goes away no matter what you do, Thank Your Skin have listed 92 things that could be triggering them.

Below are the major topics of acne triggers, for more details, check out the original article here.

1. Diet 

Thank Your Skin have a list of all the foods that contribute to acne and that includes spicy foods, dairy products and soda. Your diet plays an important roll of your overall health and beauty. What you put inside your body is going to show up on the outside. Positively or negatively, that will depend on you. So eat a balanced diet and cut out the bad stuff!

2. Skincare

It is very important to choose skincare according to your skin type. Yet, certain products that are good on others may have a reverse effect on you. This is because different people have different skin tolerance. So get to know your skin thoroughly and always check the ingredients of your products before buying them just because you're attracted to the claims and advertisements.

3. Medicines

Some people may need to take additional medicines or supplements for their body and little did they know, the ingredients inside the pills could be triggering the acne on your skin. If you're experiencing sudden breakout once you take a prescription, you might want to check again with your doctor to see if you're allergic to them.

4. Makeup

If you're not aware of it yet, yes, your makeup can actually hold a numerous number of bacteria and that will cause you acne. My suggestion is that you should always sanitized your makeup at least once a month. You can do this by spraying the surface of your powder or stick makeup products with diluted alcohol. There's not much you can do with liquid makeup except than dispose them away once they're expired. And I can't stress enough how important it is to clean your makeup brushes regularly. 

5. Wardrobe

Very unexpected, right? But actually, this is the truth. Certain materials of your clothing can contribute to acne, especially tight clothing that will make you sweat especially in this humid weather of Malaysia. Coarser materials like your scarf and jeans may irritate your skin if you have a sensitive skin. Lose fitting and breathable clothing are always better.

6. Habits

Bad behaviors such as touching your face is a big NO. If you're guilty of this, you should really try in any way to stop this habit because our hands are touching a lot of things daily, and you really don't want to transfer those nasty germs and bacteria onto your skin. Drinking and smoking are also major culprits to unhealthy skin.

7. Hair

Ever noticed that you get breakouts more on your forehead when you have fringe? This is because our hair can accumulate oils and dirt too. It is unhealthy for your hair to wash them every single day, but that doesn't mean it is also good for your skin. So the solution is, wear a hair clip to get your fringe out of the face at most of time, especially when you're working out.

8. Environment

Let's admit, it is impossible to get a clean fresh air nowadays unless you go on a hiking trip to the mountain top. Our air is so polluted that haze is very common in Malaysia. You have to make sure that you really clean yourself up from all the dust and dirt outside when you're home so that you pores will stay clean and clear.

9. Health

When you get sick, your immune system will go down and this can contribute to much other problems like stress. Hence, your body will be vulnerable to pathogens and bacteria easier, and that can cause breakout. Eat healthy and always work out is the best way to boost up the immune system of your body.

10. Partners and pets

Skin contact will definitely involves some sort of bacteria and germs transfer between you and your partner, or you and your pets. Keep your pets clean and ask your partner to trim their beard so that they won't irritate your sensitive skin.
