How To Prevent Acne

Acne affects almost everyone. About 90% of all teenagers experience acne breakouts at one time or another. Even though it’s so common, we know how devastating bad breakouts can be. Bad acne can affect your confidence. In short, living with acne can be tough, but willa can help you clear your skin and get your confidence back.

Here at willa, we only work with products that are healthy, safer and animal cruelty-free. Our products are designed to work with your skin to help balance, rejuvenate and give it a healthy glow.

Tips to Prevent Acne

While some factors of acne breakouts are uncontrollable, like pollution or genetics, there are several things that can help prevent acne breakouts. Here are a few tips for you to help prevent acne:

  • Wash Your Face: Yes, you know this. But an astonishing number of girls don’t wash their faces properly. One of the biggest causes of acne is when oils and makeup clog your facial pores. This traps bacteria in them, allowing them to grow and cause breakouts. Stash cleansing wipes by your bed so you don’t have an excuse.
  • Stay Balanced. Don’t wash your hair every day. When you strip away the scalp’s natural oils, your body will produce even more in an attempt to balance.
  • Moisturize: Another cause of acne is dry skin. When your skin is too dry it can become cracked, and these cracks are often a breeding ground for bacteria. Moisturize often to keep your skin hydrated and prevent your skin from cracking. Additionally, over-drying with harsh chemicals will cause your skin to overcompensate by producing even more oil.
  • Exercise Regularly: When you exercise, you sweat out bacteria and oils that have become trapped in your pores. You should remember to shower after a long workout to wash away these acne-causing agents as well.
  • Relax: Believe it or not, one of the biggest causes of acne is stress. It can be difficult to relax when you have so much on your plate, but it can help prevent acne breakouts from happening.
  • Avoid Chemical Products: Many skincare products contain harmful chemicals that can irritate your skin. Even products labeled “non-comedogenic” can still clog pores. Reactions from harsh products can damage your skin, which can cause acne. Be sure to use healthy skincare products to help prevent acne breakouts.

The next step in the process is using our pore perfector treatment pads. Once the dead skin cells have been removed, this part of the process works to remove and treat the acne causing bacteria in your pores.
