Although we already know that popping pimples is a bad idea, many of us still do it. Perhaps the reason why many of us still commit this skin sin is the fact that some of us still hope that when we pop, squeeze, or pick on acne, they would disappear. But popping is no acne cure at all. In fact, it makes things worse.
So instead of picking on your pimples, why not do something that would help you get rid of your acne problem. There are numerous remedies for this skin condition but unfortunately not all of them are effective. Some acne treatments also take effect faster on some people while some may need to wait a little longer. When you are dealing with acne, you have to be really patient.
Here are some of our top tips for dealing with this skin condition.
Top Tips for Dealing with Acne
- Consult a dermatologist. When it comes to the skin, dermatologists are the experts. So you are better off consulting one when you are dealing with a case of acne. A dermatologist will prescribe you anti-acne products based on the severity of your skin condition, and your skin type. He or she will also give you tips on how to properly care for your skin. Your skin care routine may need some tweaking which can be a key in preventing skin breakouts in the future.
- Avoid wearing make-up. When you have facial acne, it is advisable that you limit the use of make-up or not wear any altogether. Some of the ingredients in your make-up can further irritate your case of acne, making it worse. Make-up cosmetics can also clog your pores which can further irritate the skin. It also traps in dirt, oil, and grime which can lead to worsening of your acne.
- Wash your face before going to bed. Regardless of whether you wear make-up or not, you should make sure that your face is clean before going to bed. Dirt, oil, grime, and dead skin cells build up on the skin as the day progresses. At the end of the day, your skin will be covered and smothered with all the things mentioned and they can make your acne worse. Remember to use gentle products for your skin. Our first tip of going to a dermatologist will pay off since your skin doctor can give you recommendations on which skin care products are best suited for your skin.
- Stick to a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, a healthy mindset, and healthy habits all contribute to a beautiful and clear skin. So if you want to get rid of your acne problem, better stick with a healthy lifestyle.
