Having acne-prone skin that gets triggered without notice can be really intimidating to deal with. Especially, if you don't know what's causing the acne. From dirty sheets to what you're eating, there could be multiple reasons behind the stubborn zits on your face. 

But here's the thing. If you know what these factors are, you can take proactive measures to actively avoid them as well.

1. Smoking Can Cause Pimples

Besides cancer, smoking can also cause the breakdown of collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles and a substantial increase in pore size that leads to pimples. The carcinogens in the smoke also irritate your skin and dry it out, triggering it to produce more oil and, possibly, more breakouts. A very simple answer to this is to quit smoking.

2. Your Urge To Touch Your Face Might Trigger Breakouts

It's never a great idea to touch your face without reason during the day for example when you rest your hand on the chin, your hand is transferring bacteria from your hand onto your face simultaneously. Now, if that pimple is itching, picking it could make it red leaving a scar behind. Also, remember to never pop that pimple because this could possibly run the risk of pushing the bacteria deeper and making the problem worse

3. Watch What You're Eating

Foods like tomatoes and peppers both have acidic lycopene in them. This irritant can trigger breakouts. Though, it's not just spicy food that can trouble your skin. Certain people have a strong reaction to dairy, gluten, or even oily food. It comes down to what suits you and what doesn't.

4. Avoid Stress

Stressful situations make your skin produce stress hormone cortisol that in turn, stimulates oil glands to make testosterone which in return increases oil production and clogs your pores that translate to more breakouts.

5. Not Showering Regularly

Skipping shower on a daily basis or even after working out is not good for you. This makes it easier for the dirt, bacteria, oil, and sweat to seep into your pores and cause breakouts. So make sure that you have stocked effective anti-acne products and that you're not missing out on your daily shower for acne-free skin.
