How Do You Prevent Pimples?

The best way to fight pimples is to prevent them. To achieve this you start with the basics: the body. The healthier the body and the healthier the skin, the fewer pimples will have the chance to develop. We’ve listed the following tips to prevent breakouts:

  • Facial cleansing
  • Moisturizing skin care
  • Drink enough water
  • Healthy food
  • Get enough sleep
  1. Facial cleansing

It is very important that you clean your skin well in the morning and in the evening, so that your pores remain clean and there are no inflammations causing pimples. It is also important that you remove your make-up properly. Use our facial cleansing products for healthy and clean skin. In addition, it is recommended to apply face masks  with mud or clay once a week  to deeply cleanse your skin.

  1. Moisturizing skin care

A moisturizing cream can take care of the skin and prevent breakouts. If the skin is well nourished, the skin itself needs to produce less sebum to compensate for certain nutrients and the chance of pimples is smaller. Make sure you always use mild care products without alcohol, soap or perfume. If you dry out your skin through the use of aggressive care products, your skin has to produce extra sebum and your pores can become clogged and you are back to square one. Check out our range for a nourishing face cream for normal skin or a moisturizing face cream for dry and sensitive skin.

  1. Drink enough water

The body needs enough water, two liters, to remove waste products. The skin also contains many waste substances such as sebum. If you drink enough water, these waste products are also drained from the skin and your pores remain beautifully clean. The cleaner your pores and the less chance of pimples.

  1. Healthy food

It is important that you eat healthy and varied so that your skin gets enough nutrients through your diet. If your skin does not get enough nutrients, the skin has to compensate with the production of sebum and blackheads can and pimples arise. Sometimes a link is sought between pork and pimples or chocolate and pimples. Some people may be allergic to these products to some degree, but these products have never been scientifically proven to cause breakouts. You could eat certain products to a lesser extent, but the main thing is to eat healthy and varied, so that your body and your skin get enough nutrients that are needed to stay healthy. Are you not getting enough nutrients from your diet? Then supplement this with  dietary supplements .

  1. Get enough sleep

Finally, a good night’s sleep also plays a role in preventing pimples. In addition to the fact that sleeping is good for a good mood and the proper functioning of the body, sleeping is also good for the skin. Your skin mainly recovers at night. Do you have trouble sleeping? Check out these products that promote your night’s sleep.

Pimples

Everyone knows the feeling: a pressing red spot on your face that slowly forms into a painful white bump. Help, a pimple! What now? We prefer to squeeze them as soon as possible. But you better not do that! We tell you how pimples form, what you can do against pimples and more importantly, how you can prevent pimples.

What are pustules?

A pimple or a pimple is a small inflammation of the skin caused by an inflamed sebaceous gland. A pimple is recognizable by its red color and its white tip with pus. We distinguish between subcutaneous and superficial pustules. Pimples mainly occur on the face, on the back and on the shoulders. Especially during puberty and during pregnancy, many women suffer from pimples.

What is a subcutaneous pimple?

A cutaneous pimple is easy to recognize: it has a white head. With a subcutaneous pimple you do not see a white dot, but only a bump where the inflammation is. Subcutaneous pimples go away on their own. Do not squeeze subcutaneous pimples, as this will damage the healthy skin that surrounds it. Does the subcutaneous pimple hurt or keep coming back? Then make an appointment with a beautician.

What are the symptoms of pimples?

The following symptoms are characteristic of acne:

  • Blackheads (black dots)
  • Red bumps
  • Red blisters with yellow tips
  • Cysts (fluid vesicles)

Do you have severe symptoms? Then you may have a violent variant of acne. In that case, consult your doctor or a dermatologist.

How do pimples form

A pimple is caused by excessive sebum production during, for example, hormonal changes such as puberty. If too much sebum is produced, a sebaceous gland becomes clogged, forming a blackhead  with a black or white tip. Within this blackhead, bacteria can multiply easily, causing the sebaceous gland to ignite and a pimple to form.

Pimples in puberty (childhood pimples)

During puberty, your hormones go in all directions. This can affect your skin. This way your sebaceous glands get bigger and they produce more sebum, which can easily cause pimples. Many people also suffer from acne, or youth pimples, during puberty. This is often a temporary skin condition where the skin is red and irritated and is covered by pimples and blackheads. Do you suffer from childhood pimples? Then take a look at our special skin care products . There you will find products that have been specially developed to treat childhood pimples.

Pimples during pregnancy

You can also suffer from pimples and / or acne during pregnancy, because your skin produces more sebum than usual due to the hormonal changes during this period. In fact, some women experience more breakouts during pregnancy than during puberty. Fortunately, this problem is only temporary and the pimples often go away after a few months. Do you suffer from other pregnancy ailments? You will find everything for this in  our range for the pregnant woman .

How can you best remove a pimple?

Once you have such a pimple on your head, you want to get rid of it as soon as possible. But should you squeeze your pimples or not? We tell you what you can and cannot do to get rid of your pimples.

Pimples and the contraceptive pill

For women, the birth control pill can be a good solution for pimples. The pill ensures that hormones are kept under more control, so that less sebum is produced. The intake of the pill is not possible for men.

Should you squeeze pimples or not?

Although you probably want to get rid of your pimple as soon as possible, it is better not to squeeze it. If you do this too hard, you can suffer from scars. In addition, squeezing a pimple can actually cause a new pimple, because, for example, dirt from under your nails gets into your wound and a new inflammation arises.

Treat pimples and / or have them removed / removed

A beautician can help you squeeze pimples safely. Do you really suffer from pimples or acne ? Then make an appointment with your doctor or a dermatologist to investigate the cause of your pustules and find an appropriate treatment.

How can you camouflage a pimple?

Once you have a pimple, you want to walk around as inconspicuously as possible. It is best to have your pimple healed in the open air, because applying something can cause the pores to become clogged and inflamed again. If you still want to camouflage your pimple, we have the following tips for you.

From primer to foundation

You first camouflage a red pimple with a green primer. Green? Yes, green neutralizes the red color of a pimple. For example, use the UD Cancer Anti Redness Primer. After you have applied the primer, use a concealer that matches your skin tone. You can also use a foundation after this.
