    Everyday habits that lead to acne

    Beautician Paula Blake revealed 7 daily habits that many do not know, which lead to the appearance of acne, also known as pimples, according to the “walla” website:

    1. Oily cosmetic creams:

    Acne is caused by a sebaceous gland blockage problem, so chemical additives that are thick and greasy only speed up the process. It is therefore important to undergo a dermatological diagnosis before purchasing a facial product.

    2. Excessive washing of the skin:

    Excessive washing of the skin with soap more than 3 times a day leads to skin irritation, increased secretion of oily pores and increased acne. It is recommended to wash the face once in the morning and once in the evening to remove makeup and clean the face before going to sleep.

    3. Toothpaste:

    You will be surprised, but fluoride toothpastes can cause acne around the mouth and lips.

    4. Spicy foods and nuts:

    Although there is no scientific evidence of a direct link between acne and nutrition, acne exacerbations can occur after eating spicy foods and fatty foods and especially after eating nuts or other foods rich in salt.

    5. Bodybuilding hormones:

    The use of growth hormones to build more muscle mass leads to a hormonal imbalance in the body, an increase in the secretion of substances from the hair follicles, and an increase or formation of acne.

    6. Vitamin deficiency:

    Vitamin B deficiency can aggravate the appearance of sores. People, especially young people, sometimes suffer from anemia caused by iron or vitamin B12 deficiency.

    7. Unclean head hair:

    It is important to keep the hair clean and away from the face. It is recommended to avoid applying gel on the hair or any other oily substance that causes clogging of the sebaceous glands. It is also recommended to wash the hair on a daily basis.
