Know The Little Known Reasons Behind Acne And Breakouts And Find Out Ways To Treat Them – NDTV Doctor

Residue of sunscreen, make up and other products might worsen acne
Are you sick and tired of outbreaks brought on by acne? On skin issues, diverse beliefs exist among people. There are far too many factors we can blame for our skin problems, including seasonal changes and cosmetic and skin care products. While the obvious causes of acne, a condition when the skin breaks out in clusters of pimples as well as other growths like blackheads and whiteheads, are widely known, there are also some lesser-known causes. Dermatologist Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta discussed these little-known facts in an Instagram post.
1. Hair styling products
The majority of hair products have oil that gets on your skin and clogs pores. If you are experiencing breakouts around your hairline or in a spot where your hair hits, Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta suggests one should stop using leave-in products.
These five simple steps of a simple skincare routine for all the men out there.
Acne is a common problem among many people across the world. Nmami Agarwal shares some of the common reasons behind it.
2. Heavy sunscreen residue
The dermatologist says while sunscreen is essential to protect the skin, some formulas are too heavy and can lead to clogged pores. The knack according to the expert is to find a sunscreen that’s made for acne-prone skin.
3. Medications and birth control
Some medications and hormonal birth control can also cause acne. If you think your medicines are behind your skin issue, consult your doctor.
4. Facial hair removal
Removing facial hair by waxing or shaving can lead to breakouts. Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta says, “When you wax or shave, the pore is left open and exposed and can lead to a pimple.”
5. Phone
If you don’t disinfect your phone daily, it’s most likely to infect your skin. Throughout the day, the phone gets covered in germs and bacteria, which end up on your skin. Disinfect your phone at least once a day.
