How To Get Rid Of Acne

Mar 2, 2008
With the amount of emphasis on looks and personality, everyone is concerned about a good complexion. Most of us want a fresh, glowing skin to flaunt but shy away from taking efforts to maintain it. What we do not realize is that the skin care regime is not as complicated or tedious as we may think it to be. At times we also ignore what could be wrong with our skin and do not really spot the problem due to our busy schedules and pace of work. To solve the most rampant skin care problem of acne, we pick one beauty product out of the hundreds available which may actually aggravate the acne. Skin should be cleaned gently with a mild cleaner at last three times in a day. Avoid rubbing the skin dry after a wash; instead pat it dry. Do not resort to temporary measures to avoid outbreaks by using scrubs, scrub pads and the like. This is most likely to worsen the skin problem further.

The trick is to take some time out and explore the various effective options available and choose one which suits your skin. If you do not have time to do this search, here are some of the effective products we have come across.

The first step towards an acne free skin is to try preventing it. Simply cleaning your skin regularly and washing your face when you get back from a drive or a day out help fight acne to a large extent. If a cleaner is not available, use only cool or cold water. Washing skin wipes away the bacteria and dirt which causes acne. Use astringents only if the skin is very oily.

IF you do get acne, one of the most important things to do is to avoid touching the pimples. Do not give into the desire to reduce the size of a zit by piercing it, pinching it or squeezing it. The bacteria in one area are likely to get spread to other areas by doing so. Not only will this increase the acne around that are but it will also leave long term scars which will be difficult to remove later.

Acne can be caused by using cosmetics and beauty products that may not suit your skin. Avoid cosmetics as much as possible, especially ones like foundation and blush. If you have to use them choose them judiciously picking out those that are oil free and suit your skin (this can be done using a patch test). Oily hair products should also be avoided since they can cause ugly blackheads. To identify products which do not result in these look for labels which claim to be suitable for your skin type.

In case all this does not work and the acne is rampant, you should consider consulting a skin care specialist for advice.
