Easy tricks to help prevent your skin from breaking out

Breakouts are a common beauty problem but that doesn’t mean we should just put up with them.

Here are three tricks to keep spots at bay:

Check your products
If you are prone to the odd breakout you need to look at what products you are putting onto your skin. Find one that is suitable for oily skin and stick with it. Alcohol-based products are a no-no as they can irritate your skin and prompt excessive oil production, which you really don’t want.

Get rid of sweat
Make sure you wash your face as soon as possible after a workout. When sweat mixes with your skin’s oils it blocks your pores and traps bacteria. Don’t sit around in your sweaty clothes either as this can cause breakouts on your chest and back.

Wash your hands
Before you put your hands on your face make sure they are clean as they can carry a multitude of sins. Also, make sure you wash your make-up brushes and sponges at least once a week to stop a build up of bacteria.
