10 Surprising reasons that cause Breakout

What is acne?

Acne is a Skin Condition. It is usually found on the face, arms, chest, back, shoulders. When the skin starts producing excess sebum, sebum gets blocked in the pores along with bacteria and dead cells and it results in acne.

Reasons for Breakout

Hormonal Imbalance.

Androgens are the hormones which increase at the time of puberty and cause sebaceous gland to make more sebum. Overproduction of sebum, plug hair follicles with dead skin cells and results into acne. During pregnancy and around menopause our body undergoes hormonal changes and cause acne. Birth control pills can also result in acne formation.

Improper Diet.

The study has shown that you are most likely to have acne if your food is full of sugar and carbohydrates. When the blood sugar rises, it causes the body to release a hormone named insulin. Having excess insulin in the blood cause overproduction of sebum and ultimately results in Acne, Open pores, Blackheads and whiteheads.

On the body level, insulin can lead to serious health problems like obesity, heart problem, diabetes and many more.

Using Comedogenic products.

By the word comedogenic, we mean products which have oil in them. Using oil-based products can clog the pores and results in acne formation. Using oil-based products trigger the formation of acne.

It is very important to use non-comedogenic skincare and makeup products to maintain healthy skin. Non-comedogenic products don’t trigger the new acne.

Lack of sleep.

Lack of sleep can have a negative impact on everything from your looks to your health. A study has shown that people who sleep little had more skin problems like acne fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin.

You can heal your skin by taking care of your sleeping cycle. A good sleep heals you inside-out.

Over Scrubbing.

This is a myth- the more we will scrub, more healthy skin we will have. But this is completely wrong, scrubbing harshly results in micro-tears and lead to skin irritation and inflammation. Using harsh scrubs can harm our skin texture and trigger the acne.

Anything access is dangerous. Using mild scrub once a week can help in healing the skin. It is very important to hydrate your skin immediately after scrubbing.  

Unclean bed sheets and pillow cover.

When you move around in the sleep, you create friction, and if pillow cover or bedsheet is dirty it can cause the breakout. It is very important to change the pillow cover at least after every 2-3 days. If you are changing it everyday then this is the best you can do for your skin and hair.

If you using the silk pillowcases, it is the best, because silk doesn’t absorb much oil in it. 

Using Unsensitized Phone.

Our phone is the hot bed of germs and dust and it can cause acne. When we touch phone screen to the face, we invite bacterial infection which causes breakout and acne. The germs don’t take much time to transfer on your skin and cause skin problems. So, it is very important to clean the phone screen every day.

Using wrong products.

Seeing a new product on television is always tempting, but we have to understand a single product can suit everyone. It is very important to understand the skin type first, accordingly, we need to use the products.

To treat acne it is important to use water-based products and avoid oil-based products. People prone to breakouts must use non-comedogenic products which don’t clog the pores.

Sleeping with Makeup on.

Even non-comedogenic makeup products can cause acne if you sleep in it. When we sleep our body repair itself and remove the toxins. It is very important to make sure your skin is clean and hydrated when you go for sleep so that the skin can breathe and heal.

Sleeping with makeup prevents your skin from renewing, and cause clogged pores, acne, bumps and dull skin. The chances of infection and inflammation increases.

Over touching the face.

You touch a lot of things with your hands, and with the same hands, you touch your face again and again. The chances of getting an infection on the face are higher if you keep touching your face with unclean hands.

This will trigger the breakouts because we are bringing bacteria to our skin. Whenever applying anything on the face make sure to wash your hands before.

CTM Routine

Tired of dealing with dull skin? I have a solution for you. Have a proper skin care routine, which not only helps you to get a good skin, but also maintains the skin texture. For me, skin texture plays a very important role, no matter if you have a fair skin or brown skin, if you have a clear face, you will always end up looking beautiful.

The basic routine which everyone should follow regardless of age is CTM Routine. CTM routine is basically a skin care regime which involves Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing. You can’t have an alluring skin overnight; you need to work for it. Follow CTM routine at least for 21 days to have a visible difference in your skin. Once you followed this routine, I guarantee you will never look back.

Before setting a routine, I believe it is very important to understand what your skin needs. Select and use products wisely as per your skin type. If your friend or a sister is using one product, and they are getting good results from it that doesn’t mean you will guaranteed get the results. Not every product suit everyone. Before using any product always have a patch test. Don’t use un-necessary products on your skin. Use minimal products which suits you the best.

Now here comes the question What CTM is?

CTM is basically a skin care routine. This routine involves 3 steps- Cleansing, Toning, Moisturizing. Take your favourite cleanser which suits you the best and apply it all over your face, wet your fingers and massage in the circular motion. Make sure to massage it properly all over the face, avoid using on the eyes. Don’t forget to massage your neck. You can massage in the circular motion for 30 sec- 60 sec. Clean your face with water and pat dry with microfiber towel, for better results you can use Vinaura Cosmetics Microfiber towel which helps to maintain the texture of the skin. Normal rough towel can be harsh on the skin. Make sure to use soft towel for your face and don’t use a body towel on your face due to hygiene purpose. Have a Microfiber Towel for your face.

Just after cleansing apply toner all over your face, avoid eyes. After cleansing the facial pores tends to get open, so it is very important to close down the pores. And toner help us to close the facial pores. Mist your toner all over the face and let it dry for 30 seconds. Toner soaks up all the leftover oil from the face. More importantly, toner will help soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance.

After cleansing, skin lose all its moisture, so its very important to retain that moisture. Apply moisturiser as per your skin type. Moisturizer soothes and hydrates your skin. Regular use of moisturiser reduces the skin problems, and prevent the skin from getting it too dry or too oily. People with oily skin tends to skip the moisturiser, and this is all wrong. No matter what your skin type is, your skin needs an ample amount of moisture. Once your toner is dry, apply your moisturiser with 2 fingers only, no need to use your both hands. Massage it with 2 fingers and let it settle in your skin. After applying your moisturiser wait for 10-30 seconds, and later apply other products.

It is advised to follow a CTM routine at least 2 times a day. Don’t skip the CTM routine before stepping out of the house in the morning and before going to bed at night. When you are going for a sleep, make sure your skin is clean and hydrated properly. Poor hydration of the skin results to the skin problems. If you have an oily skin it is advised to follow CTM routine every 4-6 hours. Make sure to have a patch test of the products first. Not every product suit everyone.

Following CTM routine for at least 21 days results in:

*Clean and Hydrated skin.

*Makes your skin look younger and beautiful.

*Natural glow to the skin.

*Maintains the pH balance of the skin.

*Prevents from the skin problems.
