Dr. Schultz Tip of the Week: An Easy Way to Avoid Acne Breakouts
It’s very simple: Don’t touch your face more often then you need to. Otherwise, you’ll most likely cause acne breakouts. No, it’s not a result of germs, or even dirt; it’s the actual touching that causes zits. Repetitive touching (we’re all guilty of it) causes a very slight thickening of your skin (i.e., anti-exfoliation). This in turn promotes pore clogging and thus can cause breakouts. And how crazy is this: Anything touching your face can cause these breakouts. Even your squeaky clean hair brushing across your face time and time again can do it. Of course, touching your face a few times won’t do it, but to help stay acne-free, avoid repetition.
