Acne - There Are Ways To Avoid It

Jul 2, 2008
If you are a living human being, chances are you have had acne at one or more times in your life. Acne, in a nutshell, is a condition of the skin that affects the hair and oil secretions. Acne shows in the form of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, redness, and sometimes cysts. When you have acne on your body, especially on your face, it can hinder your appearance and make your become very self conscious about the way you look to other people.

There are a lot of people who will disregard acne as a problem and continue to go on with their lives normally. However, it is very important to take care of your acne as it becomes a problem for you. This will help control further inflammation from becoming terribly bad and uncomfortable. Many times, if acne is treated and gotten under control in its early stages, it can be cleared up easily without causing further inflammation and making the acne more severe.

To be completely honest, you should be taking good care of your skin before you see the first signs of acne. Acne treatment should be a proactive effort, not a reactive effort. If you develop and maintain a daily skin care plan and stick to it every morning and night, you will have a better chance of combating acne before it starts to get bad.

The first and most obvious step to clean, healthy skin is cleanliness. When showering in the morning, you should make it a priority to clean your face with a good face wash. It would also be wise to shower in the evenings after a long day of school or work. You should also practice showering after any activity that causes you to sweat. Showing is the first line of defense in your battle with acne. Showering alone will not prevent or cure your acne problems, but it is a start to something bigger.

When you wash your face, you should make sure that you are applying a mild, water soluble, oil free soap for maintaining the proper ph balance in your face. Cleaning the face on a regular basis is the single most important step in keeping your face clean and clear of acne.

I know from first hand experience that acne is frustrating! You just want to squeeze and pick at every pimple on your face. If you have acne right now, don't touch them at all, this will lead to scaring on your face. Just gently clean them each day with an over the counter medicine and pat your face dry with a very soft towel.

Believe it or not, you can and will win the battle over your acne. You should take some time and go see a dermatologist for further instruction and more powerful medications if what you are currently doing isn't helping matters at all.
