How to Have a Beautiful, Pimple-Free Face

Updated on June 21, 2015

1. Skin-Cleansing Regimen

The basic trick is to always keep your skin as dirt-free as possible. Keep it clean with a daily cleansing routine. Water alone cannot prevent pimples from developing, but mild soap and warm water together can eliminate excessive dirt and oils that clog pores.

Warm water loosens up the pores, helping make it possible to remove dirt. Rinsing with cool water closes them up. Mild soap is the safest to use if you don’t know your skin type.

To help prevent the oil buildup that can contribute to acne, wash your face twice a day with a mild soap and warm water. Don't scrub your face hard with a washcloth—acne can't be scrubbed away, and scrubbing may actually make it worse by irritating the skin and pores. Try cleansing your face as gently as you can.

2. Don’t Over-Clean

Over-cleansing is washing your face more than necessary or using too harsh of a cleaner. Both of these things strip away the natural oils and disrupt the skin's protective layer, leading to dryness and irritation.

Cleansing products should not contain deodorants, which aggravate your skin and eventually clog the pores. Apply a moisturizer to replenish the skin after each cleanse.

3. Avoid Using Too Much Makeup or Wearing it to Bed

Make-up often contains skin irritants and should be used minimally. If left on overnight, makeup will clog your skin. Be sure to wash your face before going to bed and after waking up. After removing makeup, gently wash your face again.

4. Change Your Pillowcase Often

Your pillowcase can be your face's best friend.Make sure to clean it regularly. Your face comes into contact with it every night and leaves some oils and germs behind. Constant rubbing (while sleeping) can cause pimple outbreak or even acne. Wash or change your pillow case every week.

5. Reduce Stress

Stress doesn't usually cause acne—pimples are often the result of hormonal shifts and will go away once hormone irregularity is corrected. Stress can, however, make existing acne worse because increases sebum production. Try to relax!

6. Beware This Acne Myth

Acne isn't helped by sun exposure, although a tan can make acne look less severe. Some people find that the oils their skin produces after being in the sun make their pimples worse.

7. Eliminate Toxins

For a beautiful, soft, radiant face, eat plenty of the right stuff: fresh fruits, vegetables, fiber, and water. Water and fiber are critical because they help to move toxins out through the regular channels of elimination rather than through the skin. Eat healthy foods. Proper diet and vitamin intake is vital for healthy skin. Drinking water also helps skin look and feel better.

8. Avoid Unhealthy Habits

We know the rules for keeping our bodies healthy: avoid smoking and excessive alcohol and get enough sleep. When we don't follow these rules we throw our hormones out of balance. Good exercise and sweating also helps remove toxins from the body. Be sure to shower or at least wash your face after exercise.

9. Make Beauty Products With Healthy Food

Make all-natural face and skin cleansers with available fruits:

Apples: Apples can used as a conditioner and toner. They have been used for centuries for their skin-healing powers. Add a cup of apple juice to your bath to cleanse and soften your skin. The juice of apple can be used as a breathe freshener. Apple juice when applied to your hair and scalp can prevent dandruff. Use as a final rinse after shampooing your hair.

Bananas: Bananas can be used for moisturizing and soothing your skin and hair. They are rich in protein and natural fats and are good for all skin types. Make an easy face mask with mashed banana. Apply over your skin and leave in place for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and moisturize well. Mashed banana mixed with a teaspoon or two of honey also makes a wonderful hair conditioner.

Lemons: A classic home beauty ingredient, lemons are cleanse and freshen the skin and hair. Use lemon slices to soften rough skin spots such as elbows and heels. Lemon slices also help deodorize. Mix a few teaspoons of lemon juice in your bath and you will feel fresh the whole day. Lemon juice, added to your favorite cleanser or shampoo, will refresh and tone your scalp. This will also help prevent dandruff.

Papaya: Papaya is rich in natural enzymes. For fresh and glowing skin apply the paste of mashed papaya mixed with three teaspoons of aloe vera gel to your skin and massage. Leave on your skin for no more than five minutes and rinse thoroughly. Do not use on your face and avoid sensitive skin areas.

Peaches: Peaches are best for soothing and cleansing dry skin. Mash a fresh peach and combine with a tablespoon of plain yogurt to make a smooth paste. Apply on the skin and keep in place for 15 minutes. Wash off with cold water.

Pineapple: Like papaya, pineapples are good skin-softeners. They cleanse and rejuvenate dull and dry skin, especially for rough skin spots like knees, elbows, and heels. Use a slice of pineapple as you would a sponge or loofah to scrub your body in the bath or shower.

Strawberries: Strawberries can be used for conditioning and skin toning treatment. They are rich in salicylic acid, an ingredient found in many commercial acne creams, and thus are the best treatment for troubled or teenage skin. Mix 1/2 cup fresh strawberries with a tablespoon of sour cream for a weekly facial mask. Eating fresh berries will also help whiten your teeth and freshen your breath.

10. Other Acne Products

There are also acne prevention products that can help clear blemished skin. These products include special cleansers, pads, and ointments that kill bacteria on contact, help unclog pores, and wipe bacteria and sebum from the surface of the skin. Be sure to choose products that:

  • Eliminate toxins and free radicals and trap sebum in the skin.
  • Protect the skin against dirt, toxins, and pollutants that can cause skin disorders such as pimples.
  • Balance the skin's pH, making it less prone to infections.
  • Improve nutrient flow and circulation to the skin.

      Kate: Having pimples is caused by so many factors. Try to check them one by one and do remedy for them. Stress, diet, hygiene, hormonal imbalance, bacterial infection, and in some cases family related. If they are "all in", You're in big trouble. Let's talk about it, ok?

      Remember not all pimples and blemishes are caused by dirts and microbes. But most of the time it's the stress and over thinking that triggers these blemishes.... enjoy a pimple-free face.... cheers to all.

      All I do is rinse my face with warm water in the morning and before I go to bed. My face is clear. I've actually found that washing with any kind of soap makes me break out. My acne is simply caused by oil. If i rinse that oil off regularly, then i get no acne. Everyone is different, but if you find that NOTHING is working, maybe you're doing too much.
