A wide variety of components can generally be found to correlate with any acne outbreak. The more correlating components of acne you are able to eliminate the greater your chances of avoiding major acne outbreaks. Most of us only know one or two anecdotal causes of acne, but don’t really understand which of the things we may be doing daily may be contributing to acne outbreaks.
Four Common Correlating Components of Acne Outbreaks
1. Improper Pillow Hygiene
Many of us don’t bother to change our pillowcases until they develop an odor. Not only does failure to wash or change pillowcases regularly correlate to acne outbreaks, but a variety of other health and immune system conditions are adversely correlated to poor pillow hygiene.
2. Animal Fats
Fried chicken may not be the best thing for you if you’re prone to acne outbreaks. Actually, you need to avoid unhealthy fats in general. Try eating more vegetables and fruits instead. If you find you are having difficulty getting full on vegetables and fruits, feel free to eat plenty of whole grains and a few nuts with each meal. Avocados are also a filling fat with beneficial oils, rather than detrimental oils.
3. Polluted Environment
Dirty air and dirty water are unfortunately correlated with bad acne outbreaks. Unfortunately for many people, these are impossible to avoid. Just do the best you can. Whenever you’re around clean water take advantage of it for drinking and cleansing.
4. Something in the Genes
Unfortunately, you can’t really change whatever it is in your genes that may be a component of acne breakouts. The best you can do is to minimize the other components which are at work. Genes alone are probably not enough to cause acne, if other components are removed.
