Acne Awareness

Acne Awareness Month is celebrated every June to educate people about acne, a common skin condition that affects more than 85% of Americans at some point in their lives. While it’s most common in teenagers and young adults, acne can appear at any age.

Here are some tips for preventing acne:

  • Lifestyle changes

Eat a balanced diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Limit sugary and processed foods, which can contribute to inflammation and acne. Exercise regularly to reduce stress, which can make acne worse. Get enough sleep each night, as a lack of sleep can lead to hormonal imbalances and more acne.

  • Skincare

Use topical retinoids to unblock pores and reduce inflammation. If you have cystic acne, you might need to take oral antibiotics, but you should get a prescription from your dermatologist first. Avoid touching your face, especially if you have breakouts near your eyes or lips, as bacteria can cause infections in these areas. Wear mineral sunscreen every day to prevent future breakouts, as acne can be triggered by sun damage.

  • Get a professional opinion
