When you have acne-prone skin, it’s not just the zits that can make you feel frustrated and embarrassed. There’s a good chance your pores, dull skin and blackheads are stressing you out, too.
And you know what’s even more bothering?
It’s when you’ve tried almost every acne solution, and you’re still stuck with large, angry bumps on your skin. This can quickly make you feel hopeless.
Frankly, you really can’t get rid of acne just by applying topical acne medications. Although they can help, the real answer is in knowing what your acne triggers are and avoiding them as much as possible.
This is easier said than done.
There are a variety of different things that can cause your skin to break out. Some of them are really obvious while others are just plain sneaky.
The clothes that you wear, the food you eat and the makeup you wear are common acne triggers. Even your sleeping habits and the way you exercise can significantly affect your skin.
