Acne isn’t fun for anybody. Fighting against acne is something most of us spend quite a bit of time doing. We spend tons of money on products that are supposed to give us better and acne free skin. Sadly, for some of us, acne problems do not always go away with when we are done with puberty. Many adults fight acne for their whole lives. Keep reading to learn some of the things you can do to strengthen your fight against acne and breakouts.
Gently washing your face is the way to go. Scrubbing is bad for you! Putting too much pressure on your face when you wash can take off layers of the skin and leave it vulnerable to oil and breakouts. Sure it will feel super clean for a while but you could accidentally do some serious harm to the very sensitive (and easily injured) skin on your face! Giving yourself scrubbing scars can be very embarrassing! This is why it is important that you take are to wash firmly but gently. Don’t fret–you can do it! After you wash your face take a look at it–if it is bright red then you used too much pressure. Looking a little flushed is okay, but bright red is not. Glowing is good but looking like a traffic light is bad.
Your hands should not touch your face if you can help it. The majority of the population doesn’t realize just how much time they spend touching their faces every day. The contact between our faces and our hands is partly to blame for our acne problems. Think about this. Each time you touch an object and then touch your face you are placing little pieces of that object into your pores. Your hands always have a thin layer of oil on them and when you rest your face in your hands, you are transferring that oil into your pores. This is also one of the reasons colds are so easily transmitted: you touch something that has germs on it and later brush your face with your hands which gives those germs easy access to your nose, mouth and eyes–prime entry portals! Don’t touch your face!
Keeping your hands clean is a must if you can’t make yourself stop touching your face. Washing your hands often can help combat acne.
Natural acne remedies are another option if you suffer from breakouts. You might try squeezing some toothpaste on that pimple. Put some toothpaste on your zits or pimples after they formed and then leave them alone overnight. Lock the pets out of the bedroom overnight so that they won’t try to taste the toothpaste or lick it off of your face and in the morning your zit will be a lot smaller than it was-it might even be gone! You might also try using egg whites in your facial cleanser and as a zit reducer. The best way to treat acne with egg whites is to use a q-tip to dab some of your mixture directly onto your pimples, though you could also use the egg whites to make a mask.
There are lots of options for treating acne. You might be able to use a simple mask made of natural ingredients while someone else might need something so strong they need a prescription from their doctor to use it. Some people find that treating acne is as easy as getting into a regular exercise routine and eating a natural and balanced diet. You might have to try a few different remedies before you find the one that works for you. You will learn what works best for your skin and what is better left for others. Don’t give up and soon you will have clean and clear skin!
