Ways To Manage Your Acne And Clear Up Your Skin Many people feel powerless against acne. Sometimes even the most expensive treatments donâ€™t offer a solution or cure for your acne. There is a way to get zits under control, and enjoy life with clear skin. Dress appropriately for the weather and try to wear clothing made from natural fibers. A climate change can affect your skin enough to trigger a breakout. Likewise, synthetic fibers can stifle or irritate your skin, also causing a breakout. If you wear lightweight clothing on hot days, it will help reduce the physical stress that occurs in the summertime. If you are plagued by acne, you should use only natural skin products. A lot of skin care products may have chemicals that can irritate the skin. The chemicals in skin care products can remove essential oils from your skin. Your skin will retaliate by producing more oil which can lead to more blemishes. If you are having an pimples breakout, keep your hands off your face as much as possible. Do not pick or scratch at the blemishes. When you touch your face, you rub more oils onto it. The less you touch, the less oily your face will be. In addition, popping pimples can actually make the zits problem worse and cause an infection. Using honey is a great home treatment for acne. Mix honey and cinnamon together, then apply the mixture to your face and allow it to dry for five to ten minutes. Once you have rinsed it off, you will notice that your skin is smoother and free of excess oils. Avoid picking at or popping pimples. Picking will lead to irritation, redness, and even infection. If you are having problems with pimples, it is best to speak to a professional who will be able to guide you towards the best method for your skin. Keep in mind that temperature extremes can bring on acne flare-ups. The hotter it is outside, the more youâ€™re going to sweat. Sweat will clog your pores. Standing sweat can cause acne. Colder weather can also negatively effect your skin by drying it out. Neither is desirable. Eat less meat and fewer dairy products if you want to control your skin. Many people feel that hormones in meat and milk can adversely affect pimples; therefore, reducing your consumption of them will probably help your zits. There is a close relationship between stress and zits. When your body is under stress it produces extra hormones like cortisol. Many of these hormones will lead to irritated skin and acne. It is not easy to stay away from all stresses, but you can learn to deal with stress in a more productive way. Avoid alcohol consumption or keep it to a minimum. An occasional drink is fine, but excessive consumption of alcohol can aggravate your pimples.
Cosmetic Products Try banning cosmetic products for two weeks and using only water to wash your face to see if it helps your acne. A great number of acne cases are actually caused by poor cosmetic products that the sufferer has applied. These products and many others are manufactured using chemicals that are not good for the skin. Many of these chemicals not only cause damage and irritation, but they also make the skin more acne prone. A good treatment for zits is to use skin-care products that contain salicylic acid. Salicylic acid, along with other acids in the beta hydroxyl family, helps the skin by accelerating the rate at which dead skin cells are shed. If you have a pimple that is particularly red and swollen, try holding an ice cube wrapped in a washcloth against it for 20 minutes or so. Ice is good for the reduction of swelling and redness. Some of the spots can be sore and ice will help with that as well. Ice is also natural and will not irritate your skin like a chemical product would. Find a nearby pool and swim as often as possible, especially if itâ€™s indoors! Exercise, like swimming, tones and loosens up your body, so that it functions better and can fight acne more effectively. In addition, chlorine may help control the pimples that occur as a result of zits. Some people think sunlight can be a treatment for acne, but this is not always the case. Sometimes, the sun and heat can make your skin produce excess oil, which leads to more blemishes. The sun may also impact your skin in other negative ways, such as increasing your chances of wrinkles, and even cancer. Learning what to do, as well as learning what to avoid doing, will help you to keep zits from controlling your life. Steadily, over time, you will see results. With the advice and information found here, you can see smoother and clearer skin in no time.
