Apart from the obvious causes of puberty: hormones, puberty, stress and that time of the month, there are the not so obvious causes of acne. Things we do daily without an afterthought that cause breakouts, pimples and any other kind of acne.

Acne which is mainly caused by change in hormones, which begins when a person reaches the age of puberty and can last through a person’s adult age. Meaning after a person passes the age of puberty, the hormone levels are supposed to balance at some point but obviously sometimes it will due to stress, pregnancy, that time of the month or something else. That something else is what we are going to discuss. It doesn’t have to do with hormones at all. So if you deal with these factors then you’re almost good to go. Almost. since you never know.

The not so obvious causes of acne

  1. Popping pimples: despite the fact that it’s satisfying for most people. Honestly I find it disturbing. I don’t know why someone will willingly cause pain to their skin. It’s really harmful. The disgusting pus that comes out of it releases bacteria and when that bacteria settles on another area of your face, or you don’t clean that area well, then it’s going to come back. Before the pimple is even ‘ripe’ for popping, squeezing it will force the pus back into your skin which can go back to the inner layers of your skin and that’s a total disaster. There are a few instances that popping pimples caused an almost irreversible damage to people’s skin. Besides its disgusting so stop!
  2. Your Pillow: you know how you sleep on your pillow, put your hand, your hair and your face, and then sweat all night? Well even if you don’t sweat, those skin cells you shed and oil from your skin seeps into it. The way to get rid of this is by dusting your bed before sleep, washing your pillowcase at least weekly. And if possible, wash your pillows too, or at least change them every 3 months. Most of pimples you get on your check are as a result of dirty pillows. When you sleep on them, out; and dead skin cells go back to your skin and the amount of oil there blocks your pores and causes pimples to form.
  3. Antibiotics: antibiotics are something we have all come across for different bacterial or viral causing ailments in our body. Antibiotics work by killing the harmful bacteria in our system. But what they also do is kill the good bacteria. Those good bacteria protect our skin from those harmful bacteria and other microscopic factors.

Try to avoid antibiotics as much as you can.

If you have use antibiotics within the past year, you are likely to have acne or breakouts. So include probiotics in your routine, probiotics are the healthy bacteria, that and including yoghurt, vitamins in your diet.

  • Hand sanitizer: something I never expected and that I’m guilty of is over using hand sanitizer. Out of habit sometimes I dap it on my face. Cringe! Well it’s high time I stopped and now I have a reason to. Hand sanitizers kill bacteria too, and well it’s easily transferable to our skin. Unless you can keep your hands away from your face for long, try not to use hand sanitizers as much
  • Hand cream: our hands touch our faces all the time and our hand creams are not suitable for our face, hand creams are heavy and are mostly comedogenic. Comedogenic products clog our pores and cause acne. If you moisturize your hands before bed, you’ll definitely transfer the cream to your face during the night. So if you’re choosing hand cream stay away from these ingredients:
  • Cocoa butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Algae extract
  • Lauryl sulfate
  • Isocetyl stearate
  • Iodine: stay away from multivitamins or edible substances containing iodine. Something we would never think of, but it was a suggestion by dr. Oz to not take substances containing iodine because it contributes to acne.

To wrap things up. I’m sure you’re guilty of at least one of these, but don’t worry so is everyone that didn’t know. But now you do, so if you stick to these, your chances of having a clear skin have definitely increased.
