Common Causes of Bad Skin

How often do you think of skin as the most vital organ in the body? The answer is not a lot for the majority of people. If anything, it’s one of the least maintained body parts because it is durable. No matter what you throw at it, metaphorically speaking, it faces it head-on and comes back stronger. Skin even regenerates! However, it isn’t indestructible and something as flaky as clogged pores can weaken it and make it sag. Even worse, a daily battering may encourage the onset of wrinkles and the signs of aging. Before you research how to fight back, you have to understand the main causes of bad skin. Here are the most common ones to consider.

Dead Skin

Unfortunately, your skin is often the main cause of its downfall because it creates new cells and sheds old ones. As the mature cells fall away, they get trapped in the pores and build up over time. Should you not exfoliate enough or should your skin get dryer, the dead skin cells can become a huge problem. In fact, it’s one of the most common reasons for damaged skin, and it has nothing to do with harmful chemicals and foreign substances.


The average woman wears makeup almost every day. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your very best when they step out of the house. However, it is worth noting that your skin will not thank you for applying bronzer and foundation. Because makeup is heavy, it often sinks into the pores and doesn’t come out even with warm, soapy water. Thankfully, antibacterial wipes and a skin care pore mask can help, but you have to be careful and make sure you clean every inch of skin thoroughly. Otherwise, it may cause a dangerous build up.

Bad Diet

You aren’t the only one who tries and maintains their skin. As it happens, your body also attempts to regulate itself, including the pores. The problem is that it can only do so much with the little it has. If there aren’t enough vitamins in the bloodstream, for example, it can’t keep skin tight and moist and battle the signs of aging. To do that, you have to be proactive with your diet and make sure you consume healthy nutrients. Junk food has little nutritional value and makes skin oilier and greasier.

The Weather

In the summer, the heat makes the glands produce sweat which then clogs pores. In the wintertime, it’s even worse because the cold air dries out skin and leaves pores vulnerable. As winter progresses, make sure to keep it exfoliated and moisturized in the dry air.
