Is the Man in Your Life Triggering Your Acne?
After a smooch session with your man you may have experienced a post make-out breakout, which leaves you wondering what caused those pesky pimples to show up in the first place. This is one of those sneaky acne triggers you may have never considered. So think about it, if the man in your life prefers facial hair, he may be using products such as moisturizers, shaving creams or balms found in his grooming arsenal, that contains some ingredients that can often trigger acne. This includes shampoos and conditioners as well, which are often used on facial hair to keep it clean and moisturized.
Here’s the problem, if you are acne prone there are several ingredients found in skin and hair products that can trigger acne quite easily such as sodium lauryl sulfate, laureth 4 or sodium chloride, to name only a few. Coming into contact with any of these ingredients can often be potential trouble for you.
What is the best way to handle pre or post make out sessions? Before you pucker up, make sure your man is using products free of those nasty pore cloggers. This also includes all of his skin care products. Post make out sessions should always include a truly acne safe gentle cleanser and moisturizer to soothe away any potential damage. Hope that doesn’t spoil the mood.
