Why Is Your Face So Prone To Breakouts?

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

For a lot of people, problems with acne, spots, and breakouts on their face might all be left behind when they leave their teenage years behind. Some of us are not so fortunate, however. Instead of resigning yourself to having to occasionally hide your face or deal with breakouts, it’s worth looking at and solving the issues that might cause it.

Dead skin cells are stuck there

Acne most commonly happens when our pores get clogged. This can happen in a lot of ways, but one of the most common is that dry and dead skin cells aren’t effectively removed from the face, meaning that they get stuck there. If you experience this a lot, then relying on regular microdermabrasion might help. Not only will this clear away all the dead skin but it can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, too.

Your face produces a lot of oil

Aside from dead skin, oil is going to be the biggest contributor to blocked pores leading to acne. Some people simply have oily skin, meaning they need products to address it. A good men's face scrub, for instance, will gently remove excess oils without stripping it from the face entirely (which can make it irritable and inflamed.) Furthermore, you want to rely mostly on natural ingredients that aren’t likely to leave the skin feeling sensitive.

You have something of a hormone imbalance

One of the reasons that breakouts are so common in our teenage years is that our hormones are all out of whack. In particular, we produce a lot more androgens, which make our skin produce more oils, which leads to clogged pores. Both low and high levels of androgens can lead to acne, often caused by things like birth control medication. It’s worth talking to your doctor about any potential hormonal imbalances. Usually, they can simply be addressed with medication.

Your lifestyle could be improved

It’s a bit of a myth that greasy food leads to acne. However, that’s not to say that it’s entirely divorced from your diet. However, it’s carb-rich food and certain other foods, such as chocolate, that have been linked to acne. Furthermore, stress has long been known to make acne worse, though the direct relationship between the two isn’t fully understood. As such, improving your diet and finding the means to get some relief from your stress can also help you fight acne.

You have an undiagnosed skin condition

Other skin issues such as psoriasis and eczema can lead to a host of skin conditions, such as contributing to breakouts of acne. As such, you should make sure that a visit to a dermatologist is part of your approach as they might be able to recommend something more specific for treating what skin condition might be affecting you.

There are quite a lot of issues that can lead to facial breakouts. The above are the most common examples but if you can’t pinpoint the source then it’s best to get in contact with your dermatologist and get the expert opinion.
