By Leila Cunningham, Head of Skin Care Products at CLN Company

Yes, we all know regular washing and cleaning your skin keeps the pimples away. But sometimes despite our best efforts, they appear. Here are some of the mysterious ways pimples appear on our skin.

1. Smartphones 

Bacteria loves smartphones and holding our phones to our faces makes it easy to spread to our skin. The fix is simple, be consistent about wiping the phone before every use.

2. Coffee 

Although it is a daily fix for most of us, coffee can throw off our skin’s PH balance. The solution is to drink more water during the day and if possible, switch to tea from time to time. 

3. Sugar 

Sugar damages your skin through a natural process glycation. The sugar in your bloodstream attaches to proteins and produces harmful free radicals that damage the skin. By eliminating sugar and incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables, your skin will achieve natural PH.

4. Shower water 

Who would have thought that a shower could produce pimples? Unfortunately it can. The heavy metals in the water are not good for the skin. By adding a shower filter, this can be avoided.

5. Lack of Sleep 

Sleep is our bodies way of equalizing and restoring balance to all of our systems. With too little sleep our immune system weakens causing pimples. The solution is to stop bad bedtime habits starting with our smartphone.

6. Thick foundation:

A night out might produce some unwanted results. Foundation when not thoroughly removed causes clogged pores. Clogged pores produce oil build up which result in zits. Take the time to remove makeup and foundation.
