Riding a bicycle makes a big difference in a day. When we ride a bicycle, face turns oiler than normal by the end of the day. It helps to change acne on face. If you maintain correct diet, you can reduce acne. Environmental factors and diet are the leading to a rise in adult acne.

The best way to remedy a breakout is to adjust your diet (avoid refined sugars!) and wash your face with a cleanser. Use the best cleansers as some of them have chemicals that are just bad for your skin.

Your skin needs protection from natural oil. For example, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) will help to handle foam in many skincare products. SLS can be used to dry your skin out and encourage mutations in bacteria, and harm the immune system. It is one of the most concentrated ingredients.

Many products are available in the market and it takes time to look and research each ingredient.  5 DIY face washes are so simple to make. There are many uses through each of the ingredients. Try out these recipes today:
