Certain habits we all have in our daily lives can give acne pimples without even realizing it. Here are 6 surprising things that can give you pimples and that you should avoid:
EATING TOO SPICY
You like to eat very spicy food and you have acne pimples? The two may be related: spicy food often contains tomatoes and peppers, both of which contain lycopene. This antioxidant can irritate sensitive skin and cause pimples.
KISSING A BEARDED MAN
You probably haven’t thought about it, but kissing a bearded man can give you pimples! Rubbing hair against sensitive skin is, on the one hand, extremely unpleasant and even painful if the skin is really reactive, and it can really irritate the skin, especially if the kisses are regular or prolonged.
If you’re going out with a bearded man and you have pimples around your mouth, then you don’t have fifty solutions :
either you ask him to shave (closely, otherwise it’s even worse!)
or you ask him to put some coconut oil on his beard so that the sensation is less unpleasant.
(We just said that it was one of the possible solutions, we didn’t say it was ideal…).
USE TOO AGGRESSIVE PRODUCTS
Using products that are too irritating, comedogenic or not adapted to your skin type can damage your skin and give you pimples. Instead, be sure to choose products that are gentle, non-comedogenic and that correspond to your skin’s needs.
TOUCH YOUR PIMPLES
When you have a button, you have the annoying habit of fiddling with it, hoping it will disappear. However, by dint of touching them all the time, it’s the opposite that happens! So avoid touching your pimples at all costs and let your skin breathe.
DO NOT WASH YOUR FACE AFTER SPORT
It is important to wash your face right after sweating to prevent impurities or makeup from penetrating the pores of the skin and giving you pimples and blackheads.
Smoking does a lot of damage to your health but also to your skin which is duller, has more wrinkles but also more pimples! Stopping smoking (or smoking less) will help you regain brighter, firmer skin and should naturally make pimples disappear.
