Five taboos when you have acne

Don’t wash your face often

  Washing your face 2 times a day is a rule you must follow. Washing your face often will stimulate the secretion function of the sebaceous glands, because once the oil on the surface of the skin is washed away, the sebaceous glands will have to work “overtime” to carry out its natural protection function, so that the sebaceous glands will become more and more irritable and active.

  Do not use scrubs and astringent water

  The actual fact is that you will not be able to get a good deal on your own. In addition, astringent water can shrink the pores and make the already clogged pores even smaller.

  Don’t smoke

  The nicotine in cigarettes constricts the walls of the microvasculature, causing a buildup of toxins in the blood and lymph, and decreasing the rate of oxygenation of skin cells, thus reducing the healing ability of the skin and making it easy to form cross-infection of acne wounds.

  Don’t pick, squeeze or pick

  If you squeeze your acne with your hands or tools, it will not help, but will cause secondary infection due to the bacteria on your hands, or cause subcutaneous bruising due to the force of squeezing, leaving a scar that will take 4-6 weeks to disappear. In addition, the wounds caused by picking and squeezing will form raised scars as a result of repeated stimulation and skin proliferation.

  Eat less spicy, fried, and high-calorie foods

  Although these foods do not directly cause the formation of acne, they can “worsen” the condition of acne because they increase the heart’s load capacity and lower the quality of vitamin K in the blood, indirectly triggering the formation of acne.
