10 Causes For Acne

Breaking out but can’t figure out why? Below is 10 common causes for acne. A good reminder is to drink water, change your pillowcase frequently (every 2-3 days), cleanse your skin properly and ensure your giving your body the nutrients it needs. Facials are recommended every four weeks and making an appointment with one of our estheticians for a consultation to asses your skin is a great first step in setting up your skin care routine.
1. Diet
Believe it or not, you are what you eat is true when it comes to your skin. Specifically with sugars, dairy, and bad fats. Unfortunately when you eat a lot of “junk” it purges from your skin, causing breakouts.
2. Stress
I’m sure we can all relate to this one. When life is just chaotic, of all times, our skin decides to breakout. A zit is just the cherry on top (literally.. gross!) We have to remember not to stress situations and to take care of our mind and body which in the end will ensure healthy skin.
3. Skin Care Routine
Washing your face twice a day everyday plays a major role in your skins hygiene and health. Even if you don’t wear any makeup products, throughout the day your skin collects build up of dirt, and sweat which is a combination of breakout causes. It’s important to wash your face multiple times a day- in the morning & before bed. – Wearing makeup to bed can age your skin way faster than you can imagine!
4. Hormones
Unfortunately, this isn’t one we can control. But we can prevent acne from it! It is completely normal and very common to have flare ups during “that time”
5. Travel
Believe it or not. The cabin of an airplane has extremely low humidity, which causes the skin to get dehydrated. When an oily-prone skin type gets dehydrated, the skin tries to repair itself by producing even more oil. Since oil breeds bacteria and bacteria leads to breakouts, flying on a plane can definitely cause problems.
6. Medications + Vitamins
A lot of medications have ingredients that take to your hormones, as mentioned previously when hormones are out of whack, so is our skin. As well as vitamins, if your body is lacking the nutrition and vitamins it needs it will show in your skin! Some vitamins you can be taking for your skin are Zinc, Biotin, and Vitamin E.
7. Weather
I’ve personally experienced acne flare ups when the weather changes drastically. When the weather is unbalanced, skin can too be unbalanced.
8. Germs
Do you touch your face often? Do you lean on your hand when sitting down at the table? I know a lot of us do. Even when we don’t realize because it’s so natural. Unfortunately, no matter how many times we wash our hands, when we touch our face we are still transmitting bacteria.
9. Cosmetics
Some makeup brands use a lot of harmful chemicals that react negatively on the skin and clog pores.
10. Genes
As you all know, our parents can pass things down to us, and one of those things can also be acne unfortunately.
