5 Reasons for Acne Breakout While Staying Indoors During Lockdown

The outbreak of COVID-19 has forced people to stay indoors and in self-isolation. It is taking a toll on both physical and mental health of many people. Here we are referring to skincare as “physical health.”
Although social distancing has given enough time to give our skin breathe and keep it hydrated and glowing, it has not turned out that way for many. Notably, many women are witnessing acne breakout during the lockdown. Besides acne, women are also experiencing other issues like dark spots and dull skin more than ever.

Why Your Skin is Breaking out More During the Lockdown?

The reasons behind skin issues during the lockdown is due to a combination of factors.

One of the fundamental reasons for a breakout is related hormones. Notably, women in their 20s, face acne breakout due to hormones called “androgens” and testosterone. Usually, the level of androgen stays relatively stable throughout the month, just before women start their period, the hormones like estrogen and progesterone drop. Now, a high level of testosterone triggers breakouts.

Here are five more reasons for acne breakouts while staying indoors during the lockdown:


We cannot deny the fact that staying in self-isolation due to lockdown is stressful. Mainly, most women take care of their household chores, kids, work from home, and other stuff, which makes it hard for them to keep up with their skincare routine. Stress is triggering acne breakouts, causing inflammation.
Stress causes the body to release cortisol. When it happens frequently, estrogen production goes down, leading to a high level of androgen. Stress causes the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, and excess fat closes up the skin pores. The clogged pores result in inflammation and lead to acne breakouts.

Ditching the Skincare Routine

During the lockdown period, many women have skipped their daily skincare routines to catch up on sleep, cooking, and binge-watching movies, or pursuing other hobbies. Amid all these, they have neglected their skin, which has resulted in acne breakouts, dark circles, visible fine lines, and dull-looking skin.

Not Drinking Enough Water

Even when you are at home, you need to keep yourself hydrated by drinking water throughout the day. Drinking water will help you get rid of body toxins. Most people often tend to forget this important thing, and this is one of the reasons for acne breakouts.

Not Having Enough Sleep

It is essential to have enough sleep (at least 6-7 hours) to give your body, mind, and skin the healing touch. If you are unable to sleep due to anxiety, it will likely take a toll on your skin and trigger acne.

Overeating too much of oily/sugary food

During the lockdown, if you have rediscovered the foodaholic in you, you are not alone. Many people are indulging in spicy, oily, and sugary food, forgetting their balanced diet. The extra oil and sugar in your food are accelerating the signs of aging and spots in the skin.

Things you should do to Keep Your Skin Healthy and Glowing

To keep your skin healthy and glowing during the lockdown, following a skincare routine, including cleansing, toning, and moisturizing daily during the day and at night.
If your skin is already looking dull, exfoliate twice daily to get rid of dry and dead skin. If you do not have the right kind of skincare products, try natural ingredients such as honey, milk, turmeric, cucumber, aloe vera, or rose water for cleansing and facial.
