Here are some of the most common breakout triggers that we often overlook!
HOW IS IT A TRIGGER?
If you’ve noticed small bumps around your mouth area, it could be due to the fluoride in your toothpaste!
Who would have thought! Some have reported breakouts from supplements like b-complex, biotin, glutathione and whey.
Overcleansing can actually dehydrate your skin (prompting it to produce more oil) and damage the barrier (inviting more bacteria!)
We take it with us everywhere, then mindlessly touch our faces or bring it to our cheeks, now you’ve got some bacteria transferred to your face!
Excess refined carbs can cause an imbalance in your hormones and inflammation in the body, showing as painful pimples!
This can seep down to our forehead or the sides of our faces.
Oil (from your face / head) and dead skin cells can build up on your pillow and then transfer back to your face!
HEAT & SWEAT
Some people are sensitive to their own sweat, causing small rash-like bumps after.
Some studies (and personal anecdotes) show dairy may aggravate acne.
For so many reasons (especially now) this is always a no!
Heavy makeup can exacerbate any current breakouts by making your skin feel ‘clogged’.
Expiration dates are there for a reason! Onece expired, preservatives in a product can no longer fend off bacteria, so you could be applying some unwanted bacteria.
