Getting rid of Facial Acne Effective tips and strategies to control and eliminate facial acne for good!
Wash your face daily * Acne occurs due to excess release of sebum (fats) * So, wash your face daily twice with soap and cold water. * Wipe your face after washing as gently as possible, with a clean tissue. * Never 'scrub' your face with towel.
Never squeeze acne grains * Squeezing or scratching acne grains will make it MUCH worse. * If somebody tells you popping the grains or scrubbing them off helps, be well aware it's nothing but a big myth. * Be as gentle towards your facial skin as you can. Whenever you have to wipe your face, do it carefully and gently.
NO Oil * If you use a sunscreen or any sort of skin ointment or makeup, make sure the label says "no oil", or "does not contain oil" or anything similar. * These creams don't clog skin pores. * If you use hair oil or gel, be sure your hair are not in contact with your face. They can also clog pores, worsening your acne.
Eat good food * Foods you eat should have minimal fat * Dermatologists recommend green leafy vegetables * Drink sufficient water. * Eat foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. They help in naturally cleaning your skin, thus making it healthy.
What does your doctor say? * Chemical drugs (Like Proactiv Acne Treatment) work well for some, but for those with too sensitive skin, they may not work so well. So, consult your dermatologist before taking any drug. * Take the prescribed drugs regularly. Also look it up on the Internet and find informative reviews on it. Sometimes, you can find some good suggestions on getting best results (Example: Proactive Reviews).
