Cast Your Acne Today

Having acne is not something most people enjoy. Sporting a pimple makes most of us embarrassed. Most of us feel like pimples and acne are things we should have grown out of when we left our teenage years. Unfortunately, not practicing proper skin care means that your teenage acne will never fully go away. Believe it or not there are some adults whose acne is so bad they feel like they have never left puberty! Here are some ways to help you keep the acne from invading. If you want to keep acne away, keep reading!

You should take steps to keep your hair from falling in your face.

Throughout the day your scalp produces oil which gets into your hair and then gets transferred to your face if you don’t take steps to keep this from happening. When you have long hair it has a way of falling in your face whether or not you want it to, which is how so many people end up with clogged pores, even as adults! We understand the appeal of long hair and bangs, but it is better to keep your hair off of your face. Use a headband to keep your hair back or pull it back into a braid or ponytail. Your pores will be grateful!

If you suffer from extreme acne problems, you’ll want to find a cleanser that contains a high level of salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. These cleansers are stronger and are usually created specifically to take care of hard to fight acne. Do not buy these cleansers unless your acne really is severe-using them on sporadic zits and pimples could strip your skin of nutrients and make it more vulnerable to breakouts than it has ever been. People who suffer from really bad breakouts on a regular basis will find products with these ingredients extremely helpful-they could be just the ticket to cleaner and clearer skin!

When acne does appear, keep both of your hands off of it! Acne needs to be left alone to heal. If you do not leave your pimples alone they won’t heal correctly. You can still wash your face and you might even want to treat some acne with acne reducing products but do not ever pick or pop your pimples. It is true that acne can take a few days to heal properly. Which would you prefer to face? A couple of days sporting a few spots or decades sporting spot scars?

Since when do zits require treatment from super expensive creams and cleansers? Keeping your face clean is the best way to fight against breakouts and acne. Don’t be too hard with your face because your skin is sensitive! The idea is to clean your face without stripping off the skin!
