How To Get Rid Of Acne

Acne can occur on your face, chest and back, it happens to a lot of people and here is what you should and shouldn’t do to get rid of acne. There are over the counter remedies and if the acne is really bad and painful a visit to the Dermatologist will be more helpful than figuring it out by yourself and stressing over it.
Two things to avoid
Don’t touch your face. Its very tempting to touch your face, pick and squeeze on the blemishes but try to not do this because the bacterias on your hands can worsen the pimple, lead to scarring and worsen your acne overall.
Avoid makeup and skincare products that clogs your pores. Products with mineral oil tends to clog your pores and make acne worse. Instead look for products that say they are oil-free or non comedogenic.
Five tips to get rid of acne
Have a good skincare routine. You should not use products that dries out your skin. Use the right skincare products so you still hydrates the skin without getting it too oily or dry. Use a gentle cleanser and only use a face scrub 1-2 times a week because they can be quite harsh on acne prone skin.
Keeping it clean. Wash your face every day and after sweating but don’t wash it too many times because that can dry out your skin. If you use makeup and makeup brushes make sure to clean those brushes as often as you can.
Change pillowcase. Pillowcases tend to have oil, dirt and sweat from the day. By swapping your pillowcase at least once a week it reduces the risk of more pimples and breakouts.
Use products with salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is one of the most common ingredient to combat acne. This ingredients can be found in makeup and skincare.
Use ice. If you have an inflamed, red and swollen pimple applying ice to the area will relieve pain and the visibility of the pimple . Do this throughout the day rather than picking and squeezing it with your fingers.
