Pimple Prevention

When you are looking for skin care measures that could prevent pimples, you might want to:

  1. Practice Clean Skin Habits: Keeping the skin well cleansed will deter the formation of pimples. Using a mild cleanser at the start of your day, in the evening, and before bed is recommended. Avoid scrubbing your skin, which has the potential to make matters worse.
  2. Keep Your Hands Off: Touching your skin passes extra dirt, oil, bacteria, and grime that can trigger acne and other skin irritations. Also, if you see a pimple start to form, you should refrain from squeezing, pinching, or picking.
  3. Shave With Caution: The way you shave can also irritate the skin to provoke pimples to form. Depending on your skin sensitivity, you may have to find a balance between electric and safety razors.
  4. Read All Skin Care Labels: When purchasing skin care products, you should be on the lookout for words, such as “oil-free,” “grease-less,” “hypoallergenic,” and “non-comedogenic”
