1 of 5
While exposing yourself to the sun for around 10 to 15 minutes every day is ok, exposing yourself to the sun for more than that regularly will not only worsen your acne but also encourage other skin disorders. Excessive exposure to the sun on a regular basis can also cause skin cancer. Thus, it is very important that you limit and control your sun exposure daily

2 of 5
Although lifestyle is a big and important factor in determining the acne breakouts, more often than not, it is the hereditary factors that determine whether you will get acne. It also determines the severity of the conditions as certain people tend to have worse breakouts and acne related problems as compared to others. Natrum Muraticum and Nux Vomica are great medications in fighting acne.
Use of devices such as helmets, chinstraps, and headgears can also cause acne.
3 of 5
The use of helmets and chinstraps on a prolonged basis can cause excess oil or dirt to accumulate on the skin resulting in acne. It is important to keep your face clean if you are constantly using head gear, but don't overdo the cleaning as that can over activate the oil-producing sebaceous glands. Sulphur is a great homeopathic medication that can help cure this type of acne.
Which of the following foods is the best at controlling acne?
4 of 5
High sugar concentration within most processed foods, as well as oily junk foods, is one of the biggest acne contributors. However, Green tea has been known to have positive effects on your skin as it keeps the sebaceous glands under control. The sebaceous glands are the oil producing glands on the face and these are responsible for secreting the oil which might lead to the development of acne. Nux Vomica and Belladonna are great medications in controlling acne within homeopathy.
You should wash your face multiple times in a day to prevent acne.
5 of 5
Washing your face two times a day is a good thing to prevent acne, overdoing this would, in fact, encourage acne. This is because the more you wash your face, the drier it becomes, as it removes all the essential oils. If the skin becomes too dry, the sebaceous glands will compensate for it by producing more oil on your skin than normal, thus resulting in further acne breakouts.
