Acne on one side of your face? 4 everyday things to watch out

Acne on one side of your face? 4 everyday things to watch out

1. Keep your cell phone clean

A cell phone ports lots of bacteria and virus. Their constant pressure and contact with the skin, along with the bacteria they include on their surfaces, can irritate the skin and exacerbate acne breakouts. Thus, holding your cell phone to your face and talking for a longer period can trap sweat, dirt and bacteria in the skin holes and clog them.

2. Keep pillow covers clean

Your face rests on the pillow for 6-8 hours each night. Not only do the pillow covers accumulate micro dust on them, they even receive all the pore-clogging oils from your face also  your skin care products if you haven’t cleaned your face before sleep. A cotton pillowcase even traps bacteria, grime and allergies in addition to oil. Unless you wash or replace the pillowcase every some of days, a cotton pillowcase might aggravate acne-prone skin. Thus, it is advisable to change your pillow covers in every 2 days.

3. Don’t touch your face with dirty hands

Touching your face often without washing your hands can transfer dirt, grime and bacteria from your hands on the face. This is the best way to kickstart an acne breakout as you tend to introduce a bacteria to your skin and exerting pressure on it. Most of us do this unknowingly, so take care!

4. Keep your hair tied

When open hair, mainly when they are greasy, come in contact with the face, it can sometimes clog the pores. Sometimes, hair products containing hairspray, mousse, oils and gels can cause skin sensitivity and an overproduction of oil in the hairline. Wear caps, bandanas, helmets, and headbands which can gather sweat and oil in the hairline. Because of  the accumulation of sweat and oil, the hairline may improve acne or pimples as a result.

Therefore, if you are problems by breakouts on one side of your face, it is best to do the above to ignore acne. If the breakouts are grave , you should see a dermatologist since it can even be due to allergic reaction to some skin care product.
