Three Tips on How to Break the Habbit of Picking Acne

by Kleveru | 12 September 2022

Hi Klevies! Acne breakout occurs due to excessive sebum production and the buildup of acne-causing bacteria and dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Touching and picking acne with your bare hands can lead to severe inflammation followed by irritation, swelling, and redness. 

The forced pressure that happens when you’re picking acne turns the acne into an open wound that triggers more inflammation and worse breakout. The infected wound later leads your skin to acne scars. 

However, there are always ways to prevent the worst-case scenario from happening. In this article, Kleveru will share three tips you can do to get rid of the habit of picking acne. Check it out, Klevies!

Try Face Masks to Treat Acne

Doing the right treatments, including using calming ingredients certainly can reduce inflammation and acne swelling. One of the things you can do in your free time at home is using a face mask for acne skin. For a better result, choose a face mask with Centella Asiatica, since it is known to be able to treat acne problems and heal wounds. 

You can find the benefits of Centella Asiatica in Kleveru Centella and Spirulina Green Mask to calm skin inflammation, accelerate wound healing and acne, and fade redness. As a scrub-free exfoliating mask, Kleveru Centella and Spirulina Green Mask are formulated for acne-prone skin with 11 anti-acne combos and Patchouli Essential Oil that helps to cut down stress levels.

Consider professional help

If your acne problem has been going on for a long time and not getting any better, you may want to consult your problem with a dermatologist to find out what exactly the root cause of your acne is and the best way to treat it.

FYI, for mental health, picking acne can also be a sign of stress, depression, and anxiety. With professional help, you may not only improve the condition of your skin but also gradually improve your overall well-being.

Redirect your energy for something better

Picking acne is often associated with unconscious habits due to anxiety. Practising your focus and concentration by meditating is very useful to reduce stress levels and anxiety. Concentrating can train you to redirect your energy from picking acne unconsciously into better activities that help you reduce the habit of picking acne. 

If you find it too hard to do, try distracting yourself by keeping a stress ball or stationery close to avoid picking acne. Clipping nails regularly is also very helpful to reduce infections caused by direct contact between hands and the skin. 

So Klevies, although it is very tempting to play around with your acne, it’s better to be avoided it as much as possible so it won't worsen your acne.
