4 reasons you keep breaking out..
Because it doesn’t just happen when it’s that time of the month.
You aren’t getting enough sleep.
They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing! Getting a good sleep (7-8 hours) is like hitting the reset button every night, it gives your cells the time they need to regenerate. It also lowers your stress levels, preventing the over production of cortisol, a hormone that causes your entire body to feel out of whack and act out with angry acne flare-ups.
The Ace Fix: Hit the hay. It’s not rocket science. And while your at it get off your phone well before bedtime, it will help you get the ZZZ’s you need.
You’re sleeping on a dirty pillowcase.
We spend roughly one third of our lives sleeping, that’s a helluva lot of face to pillow time. So, we need to be mindful of hygiene. Remember to wash away the grime of the day, before you go to bed, so you don’t transfer that onto your pillowcase.
The Ace Fix: Wash your pillowcases on the reg using a sensitive laundry powder. Bonus: treat yourself to silk pillowcases to reduce friction (you’ll wake up with fantastic hair too!)
A lack of h20 can cause your body to produce more sebum than your skin could ever need/want which in turn lead to congestion.
The Ace Fix: Keep hydrated. Drink from a water bottle so you can accurately measure how much water you are consuming throughout the day.
Your diet needs a makeover.
If acne regularly gate-crashes your complexion, their could be a hidden culprit in your diet that is at the very root of the problem. And often it’s not the most obvious offender - sugar - that’s to blame. In fact, unbeknownst to you, certain foods such as dairy or highly processed carbohydrates could be causing you to break out.
The Ace Fix: Avoid going down the self-diagnosis path - because being a Doctor Google is never a good idea - and actually speak with a healthcare professional about how your diet could be effecting your skin.
