You Might Actually Be Adding to Your Acne

We all fight against pesky pimples and facial volcanoes. But you might actually be adding to your acne.

I’ll Keep You My Dirty Little Secret: Cellphones, washcloths and pillowcases can carry tons of bacteria, which is a main cause of acne. Grab a cellphone headset & fresh linens!

I’m Just Gonna Bake It Off: Sunburns can temporarily dry out pimples, but the sun’s drying effect can cause your skin to produce more oil, leading to bigger breakouts. So use oil-free sunscreen.

Can’t Feel My Face: Over-exfoliating can irritate and dry out skin, which can lead to more oil and more acne. Be consistent yet gentle.
