Acne mainly affects teenagers, but adults can be victims too! To avoid the invasion of unsightly pimples, follow these tips on a daily basis.
New habits in the bathroom…
Acne, for some, is just a few pimples here and there from time to time. For others it is a daily ordeal… If hygiene can improve acne, it is not the cause. In fact, it is hormonal variations and excess sebum that cause acne.
However, having a more rigorous hygiene can reduce it considerably or even eradicate it in the best of cases. One or two daily cleansings limit excess sebum, which is the breeding ground for acne development.
First of all, wash your face thoroughly and, from time to time or daily according to the tolerance of your skin, use a cleansing brush or a gentle exfoliating treatment. This daily ritual aims to cleanse but also give the skin its best balance between dry and oily skin.
The facial brush is popular right now and offers unparalleled efficiency. Its fine bristles come to clean the pores in depth: exactly what is needed to overcome acne.

Gradually improve your eating habits and, above all, enjoy it: this is the sine qua non condition for not falling back into a diet that is too poor in fruits and vegetables. Gradually, you will develop a taste for this light and varied diet.
