What Could Be Causing Acne Breakouts

Acne can be hard to treat. You may have tried multiple acne treatments, yet your skin is still aggravated. While you are taking the right steps with trying to find the acne treatment that will help to clear your acne, there are quite a few things that contribute to acne breakouts that you may not even realize.

1. Skin Care Products That Clog Your Pores

There are certain ingredients in your skin care products that are known for clogging pores and causing breakouts. While it may be difficult to remember and look for the certain ingredients that are “pore cloggers,” looking for products that are “non-comedogenic” will make it a lot easier. “Non-comedogenic” means that it does not clog pores. This will ensure that the products you are using are not making your acne worse.

2. Sleeping With Your Makeup On

Leaving your makeup on overnight will hinder your skin’s renewal and clog your pores. Bacteria will then build up and cause inflammation, which can lead to acne. It is very important to make sure you are washing your face before bed, no matter how tired you may be! Your skin will thank you.

3. Your Pillowcase

Speaking of nighttime, it’s important to think about where your face is laying for the 7-8 hours you sleep at night. Your pillow can accumulate bacteria, dust and dead skin cells. It is important to wash your pillowcase as often as possible!

4. The Sun

While being in the sun increases your risk for developing skin cancer, it can also cause oil glands to become overactive, which can then lead to breakouts. Choosing an oil-free, non-comedogenic sunscreen will help protect your skin without causing a break out. 

5. An Unhealthy Diet

What you eat changes the consistency of the oil on your skin, making it more likely to clog pores. Some food also tips your skin’s natural balance in a way that flares acne. Sticking to a healthy, low-fat, low-sugar diet will lessen flare-ups and make it easier to control with acne treatments.

6. Your Beauty Tools

Everything that comes in contact with your skin should be cleaned often to keep bacteria levels low. This includes any skin care devices, makeup brushes and even your phone screen. If you’re not cleaning your makeup brushes, try out our NEW H&H Science Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner. With this proper cleaning, your brushes are guaranteed to last longer than ever before, while preventing bacteria buildup. 

Step 1: Wet your brush’s bristles under a running faucet with lukewarm water

Step 2: Use a gentle soap and lather on your makeup brush 

Step 3: Gently scrub makeup brush on Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner

Step 4: Rinse the brush by scrubbing on the Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner under running water

Step 5: Squeeze excess water from brush, reshape and lay flat on a clean surface to dry

INFUSION-02.png

UltrasonicMicrodermabrasionDeviceWEB.jpgHH Science Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion and Infusion Device is an all-in-one tool that can rid your pores from those nasty little blackheads and exfoliate your skin shedding dead skin cells and debris. Ultrasonic technology uses a hand piece spatula. When the spatula is excited by an electrical current it emits vibrations. These rapid vibrations (27,000 per second) force the dead skin cells and skin debris to loosen. This results in deeply cleansed skin and a deep, yet gentle exfoliation. This type of exfoliation is 3-fold as it removes the dead skin cells, deep pore cleanses and hydrates tissue. Ultrasonic microdermabrasion or skin peeling provides less aggressive method of skin exfoliation than traditional microdermabrasion as it is crystal free. The infusion process helps your HH Science Lift and Fix Professional Treatment penetrate deeper into your skin for maximum absorption .The vibration of the device creates a fine mist that also removes the excess water from your face during the application.  Additionally, it can be used on all skin types, even rosacea, sensitive and acne skins.
