How to care for your skin before and after breakouts?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 20 Dec 2021

[article]

A skin breakout, also called acne vulgaris, is a common skin disease that primarily affects adolescents and young adults. It is characterized by pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and redness. Acne starts as an inflammation of the sebaceous glands in the skin, which produces oil (sebum). In people with acne, this process becomes overactive and clogs pores.

Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria breed in these clogged pores and cause inflammation. This can result in small inflamed pimples or open infected pores called pimples or zits. Acne vulgaris affects almost 90% of teenagers between 12 and 24. During their menstrual cycle, women are more likely to develop acne.  

Causes: 

There are many different reasons for skin breakouts, and other parts of your body will have different causes. Some people are prone to blemishes, which you'll have to deal with all your life. Others find that their breakouts appear at certain times of the month or after eating certain foods. These things depend on your specific case, so try keeping track of your lifestyle choices to know what causes flare ups for you. For example, if you eat pizza before bed every night, you might want to avoid that in the future. 

Many causes of breakouts include stress, diet, allergies, hormones, and genetics. For example, if a person has a specific food allergy, the skin can react to the food by breaking out. Stress affects hormones and can cause acne.

Hormones are also controlled by the thyroid gland, the ovaries, the adrenal glands and other organs in the body. For example, breakouts are common in women with a hormonal imbalance (such as polycystic ovarian syndrome). If you're suffering from an acne breakout, it's essential to identify what is causing it so that you can treat it appropriately. Unfortunately, most products on store shelves are only mildly effective against acne, and they don't treat the underlying causes of breakouts. 

Tips to Prevent & Cure Skin Breakout: 

Cleanse: The first step in any skincare routine ought to be proper cleansing. This can remove dirt, oil, and bacteria interfering with your daily skincare regimen. Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser once or twice daily at least. To cleanse the face, the most important thing is to wash the pores free of dirt, oil and bacteria. Next, be sure to lather up thoroughly all over the face, especially where acne tends to form: on the forehead, nose and chin area. 

You may also want to cleanse your neck as well; this area is often missed when it comes to skincare tasks like washing and can easily become congested with dead skin cells and excess oil, leading to breakouts down below. After cleansing, it's a good idea to use an astringent like witch hazel or toner like rose water.  

Cleanse your face to fight acne

Exercise: Exercising regularly can help decrease stress levels while increasing circulation. This reduces the number of acne outbreaks you have and helps your skin stay clear once you've treated existing breakouts.  

Exercise daily

Food: Healthy Diet plays a significant role in preventing breakouts. Some foods, like chocolate and fried foods, can worsen acne, while others, including carrots and tomatoes, can improve your complexion. If you're experiencing acne problems, it's worth making dietary adjustments to see if your skin improves afterwards.  

eat well

Exfoliate: Exfoliating regularly reduces excess oil production by removing dead skin cells from pores, minimizing blackheads and whiteheads and reducing the risk of new ones forming on your face or body.

Use natural supplements: Try to eat natural health supplements for glowing skin that leaves no chemical side effects on your skin. For example, andMe's plant-based Beauty Drink: for Glowing, Acne and Pimple free skin!

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
