What is Really Causing Your Acne?

Ok, so we all know hormones cause acne. But what else triggers those horrible little red bumps that make us want to hide under the covers for a few days?
You are what you eat

  • Put down that pizza! Foods with a high glycemic index are known to make acne worse because the refined carbs and sugar can cause inflammation.

Vitamin B12

  • A new study by the University of California, Los Angeles, found that the Vitamin B12 contains an inflammatory compound that can trigger pimples. So if you happen to be prone to break outs, you may want to skip the cheeseburger.

Your pillow, phone, and other things that touch your face

  • It seems obvious but many don’t think about the fact that there is bacteria breeding on everyday surfaces. Make sure to wash your pillowcase at least once a week and wipe down your phone with a sanitizing wipe often.

Clogged pores

  • Acne makes us want to pile on the makeup to cover those unsightly blemishes. Well, before you heap on the products, make sure you are using non-comedogenic products that won’t clog pores.

As much as you change your diet and choose the right makeup and moisturizer for your skin, there is still one thing that isn’t an easy fix- the fact that acne is primarily caused by a hormone in your body called DHT. But using a product that gets to this root cause by reducing DHT production and excess oil production can help you get that clear skin you’ve been dreaming of. Try it today, combined with the tips provided above, and you are sure to get results!
