Ways to Minimize a Breakout
Acne can come in the form of blackheads, whiteheads, and painful cystic acne. To minimize acne breakouts, here are 10 tips to help you enjoy clear skin:

  1. Get regular exercise, because sweating helps get rid of toxins and increases blood flow to your skin.
  2. Manage your stress through relaxation techniques, yoga, or breathing exercises because stress can bring on an acne breakout.
  3. Avoid greasy, fatty, or processed foods.
  4. Limit dairy products in your diet.
  5. Eat lots of natural, unprocessed foods like vegetables and fruits.
  6. Stay hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day because water flushes toxins from your body.
  7. Keep your cell phone and other items that are next to your face clean and free of bacteria.
  8. Use oil-free, non-comedogenic makeup to keep your pores clear.
  9. Change your pillowcase every week to keep sweat and dirt away from your face.
  10. Keep your hands clean and try to avoid touching your face.

If you suffer from chronic acne, don’t worry. We can offer several effective acne treatment options, including:

  • Antibiotics, in oral or topical form to treat the underlying infection
  • Products containing benzoyl peroxide to unclog blocked pores
