How to get Rid of Acne

By  | 

Acne is a skin problem that starts when oil and dead skin cells clog up your pores. Acne may be treated with a combination of remedies including over-the-counter skin care, acne medications, and chemical or laser procedures. Learn safe ways to banish blackheads, whiteheads, and cystic acne, and get the clear skin you want by reading this post. Acne appears on the skin as

  • occluded pores, also known as blackheads or whiteheads,
  • tender red bumps also known as pimples or zits,
  • pustules (bumps containing pus), and occasionally as
  • cysts (deep pimples, boils).

Some causes of acne are:

  • Heredity
  • Pressure
  • Drugs
  • Occupations
  • Cosmetics

Different things work for different people depending on your skin type and what kind of acne you have, but here are some general rules:

  1. Wash your face regularly, but not too much:Wash your face before you go to bed, because you should never sleep with your makeup on – it clogs your pores and will make you break out. You can gently wash in the morning as well, but don’t go overboard. Washing too much will make your skin dry and can also make you break out even more.
  2. Find the right facial cleanser for you.You may have to try out a bunch of different things to find the cleanser that works for you, but when you do, keep it close to you and use it all the time. Neutrogena, Clean & Clear and Noxzema all make great, inexpensive options. Look for benzoyl peroxide as an ingredient, which will get rid of acne.
  3. Moisturize every day.Moisturizing is SO important. Just find the right one for you. I love, love, love Clean & Clear.
  4. Stop picking your face.I know you want to pop those pimples, but don’t do it. Touching your face puts oils and bacteria and dirt on your face, which clogs your pores, which in turn makes you break out.
  5. If all else fails, head to the dermatologist.Sometimes, drugstore stuff just isn’t strong enough for your acne. If nothing is working, go to the doctor so they can help you.
