Three Ways to Minimize Acne Breakouts

Oct 21, 2021 Alex Brecher

Acne breakouts often come at the worst times. Your skin may start to break out before a family get together, a job interview, or a party, for example. But even though acne breakouts may seem random, they often are not. You can take steps to prevent breakouts or make them less brutal when they happen. These are three ways to minimize acne breakouts.

  • Practice Good Skincare
  • A good skincare routine is the foundation of healthy skin. This includes washing your face daily with a gentle cleanser or mild soap and warm water. You can wash problem areas twice a day. Be sure to wash your hands before touching your face to wash it.

    In addition, a good skincare routine involves taking care of your general health. Habits such as eating right and exercising regularly support healthy skin. Eating more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, while limiting refined carbohydrates such as white bread and added sugars, can help. So can using sunscreen when you are outside, and managing stress.

  • Use Clean Fabrics
  • Use only clean towels and washcloths to wash or wipe your face. This applies to any fabric that touches your face. You may need to launder them more frequently if you suspect that they are getting dirty and leading to increases in acne outbreaks, and consider using a hypoallergenic detergent.

    Along with using clean towels and washcloths, it is important to use clean makeup brushes and other applicators. This includes not sharing them with friends. If you do, you may end up with their dead skin cells, bacteria, and skin oils on your makeup applicators and eventually on your skin. That is a sure way to increase your risk for acne!

  • Try the PatchAid Clear Skin Acne Prevention Patch
  • The PatchAid Clear Skin Acne Prevention Patch is easy to use. Just apply it once a day and remove it 8 hours later. It contains vitamins and minerals that are essential for optimal skin health, as well as other ingredients related to the skin. 

    The patch includes these and more ingredients.

    • B vitamins, vitamin A, in the form of retinyl acetate, and vitamins C, D, E, and K - all of which are essential for optimal skin health
    • L-carnitine and curcumin, which are antioxidants
    • Type II collagen, which plays a role in firm and elastic, youthful-looking skin.

    Be sure to talk to your doctor if you are concerned about acne or any other skin or health condition, and make sure the PatchAid Clear Skin Acne Prevention Patch is a good match for you.

    Acne breakouts can be irritating or embarrassing, but they are often preventable. A good skincare routine is the foundation of preventing or managing acne breakouts, and it is important that any towel or fabric that touches your face be clean. The PatchAid Clear Skin Acne Prevention Patch is another strategy for supporting skin health by providing essential nutrients, collagen, and antioxidants. As long as your doctor agrees, these three ways to minimize acne breakouts are worth trying!
