• Acne Vulgaris Preventions

  • Food: Avoid oily, fatty and fried foods. In some people, dairy products can stimulate sebum secretion and should be avoided.
  • Hygiene: Simple steps such as washing with a mild soap after any exercise and keeping personal gear clean go a long way in preventing Acne.
  • Medications: Medications that increase secretion of androgens like corticosteroids and oral contraceptive pills must be avoided.
  • Cosmetics: It is advisable to avoid applying too many cosmetics on the skin because they may interact with each other and induce allergic chemical reactions.
  • Excess care: The skin is a very sensitive organ, and so over-scrubbing and over-cleansing must be avoided.
  • Touching eruptions: Pimples are infectious. Touching or picking them facilitates spread of the infection and increased number of pimples.
