You’ve tried it all: read every article about acne, slathered on every hyped up product on the market, even altered your diet–and yet, your acne doesn’t seem to be going away. As it turns out, there are other uncommon factors that contribute to your acne problem. Read on below to discover what some of these are.
Your hair and styling products
Shampoos, conditioners, hair sprays, pomades, and many other hair styling products are full of sulfates, heavy moisturizing agents, and silicones that seep oil into the forehead. The result is inflamed clogged pores that eventually turn into blackheads or whiteheads along the hairline. Sporting certain hairstyles doesn’t help too. Bangs make acne worse by bringing skin-clogging hair products and its natural oils right against your forehead.
What you can do is look for sulfate-free hair products. Also be careful to keep them away from your face, especially spray-on products like dry shampoo.
You know your phone harbors all kinds of bacteria – you bring it everywhere you go, especially in the bathroom! Yet, disinfecting your phone seems like such a chore. While the naked eye definitely cannot see the bacteria on your phone, your face will definitely receive the effects of it. Putting your phone near your face transfers the bacteria right into your pores, multiplies, and causes acne breakouts. The solution here is simple: just sanitize your phone on a daily basis.
Your makeup tools
Again, this is all about keeping your surroundings and stuff clean. If not cleaned regularly, the makeup tools you use everyday like brushes and sponges provide a warm, moist environment for microbes to thrive in. Swiping a bacteria-infested brush transfers an abundance of microbes that your skin isn’t used to which eventually leads to, you guessed it, acne problems and other skin irritations like rashes and blisters.
While this may seem silly, consider the fact that your pillowcase come into repeated contact with your face every single night. Not changing your pillowcase often make them an ideal source of bacteria, dust, and dead skin cells. Reevaluate your cleanliness and change your pillowcases often. Better yet, invest in a luxurious silk pillowcase that reduces friction which can irritate acne-prone skin.
You can help rectify your acne problems by eliminating these external factors. But why not also try addressing your acne from the inside with Lactoferrin + d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate + Zinc (Lactezin)? With its formulation of 3 ingredients, Lactezin can help treat blackheads and other acne problems in as early as 2 weeks when taken twice daily.
Lactoferrin + d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate + Zinc is the generic name of Lactezin. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
