How to Protect Yourself from Acne

There’s a pretty decent chance that when you were a teenager, you had to grapple with the ever-annoying problem known as acne. Not only did it make your face look and feel greasy and rough, but it could lead you to be a big target for an unflattering nickname such as “pizza face.” Unfortunately, acne isn’t a hygiene issue that ever really goes away, even when you’re elderly.

We wanted to go over a short list of ways that you can make acne a non-issue in your life. Your face will thank you for reading this article.

1. Scrub Your Face

When you were a teenager, you might have been told off by a parent for not bathing enough (especially if you were a young boy). Aside from just being basic common courtesy for others, it was also important to hear because bathing and scrubbing your face with the appropriate cleaning products is how you dealt with acne.

Even as an adult, one of the most surefire ways to keep your face clear and smooth is to thoroughly scrub and lather it every day.

2. Wear Appropriate Cream

Aside from cleaning products such as soap, we highly recommend slathering your face with skin cream, to get into areas that shower cleaning products might not have reached. Be careful when you try on different face creams, as you might have an allergic reaction to them, or just find that they are not having the effect that you want.

3. Have a Healthy Diet

Did you know that having a diet subsisting mostly of cheap, salty, and greasy food can have a severely unpleasant effect on your pores? It’s true! We advocate that you have a lifestyle where you look after your outer body by using hygiene and a healthy diet, because both have enormous influence on the development of acne.

If you make sure that you eat lean proteins, fruits and vegetables on a consistent basis, while minimizing nutritionally suboptimal foods, then you will find that you have a significant reduction on acne.


Acne is both unpleasant to look at and uncomfortable to feel on your face. Keep this list in the back of your mind if you want to have a clear, healthy, and bright face.
