Acne Vulgaris:
Causes, Symptoms
& Treatments

How to prevent Acne Vulgaris

Since Acne Vulgaris is mostly caused by hormonal changes, there isn’t a lot you can do to control this. However, a range of lifestyle changes can compliment your treatment and skincare regime, to help keep the symptoms of acne vulgaris at bay.

  • Wear sun protection: acne skin treatments and medication can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, increasing the risk of sunburn and inflammation
  • Avoid touching or picking at acne lesions: picking at acne increases the risk of scarring.
  • Avoid foods that may cause flare-ups: dairy and foods with a high-glycemic index.
