Acne Breakouts? Prevention is Key!

It never fails. When you’ve got a hot date or you have plans for a night on the town with the girls, a red-hot pimple appears. You break out the concealer or try to create a new sweeping hairdo that covers the zit blaring from your forehead, but in the end, once a pimple has staked a claim, it’s hard to get rid of it. The key to acne is to prevent it before it starts, and stylists and estheticians at your local spa can help. Check out this list of ways to prevent acne before it ruins another night out.

Get a facial
Facials aren’t just a fun and relaxing treat, they serve as a great way to exfoliate your skin. There are all kinds of facials that detoxify, rejuvenate, and revive the skin. Masks can clear the pores and keep pimples and other acne away. Talk to an esthetician about your skin type to select the best treatment.

Watch the hair products
Your hair touches your face all day and so do the products you use to style it. Chat with your hair stylist, and ask about products that are more sensitive to skin. They have access to a whole host of   products that can help; all you have to do is ask.

Spend more on a good foundation
Coating your pores with heavy makeup is an invitation for pimples to set up shop. Since it’s unlikely that women will ditch their favorite foundation, splurge a little on a foundation is that lighter and better for the skin. Most salons have a makeup artist on staff that can help you find a foundation that works with your skin tone and is easy on the skin.

Take makeup off before bed, or sooner
Once you’re back in the comforts of home, strip the makeup off your face. Again, a makeup artist can suggest a simple makeup remover that will keep your pores clean and pimples at bay. By taking that little bit of extra time and care, you can help avoid acne breakouts.
