How To Get Rid of Acne

Updated on March 19, 2013

Acne Treatment

Acne can be quite unattractive, and the least I could do is provide you with the information to avoid and treat acne.

Tip #1- Moisturize Your Skin

Your body creates its own oil which moisturizes your skin for us. This oily element keeps viruses and bacterias from being absorbed into the skin. Whenever you take a shower, your body's natural oil is washed away leaving you unprotected. Therefore, you must always apply lotion to your skin, after taking a shower.

Tip #2- Caution With Make-up

When you wear make-up, the chemicals in the substance clog your pores. Before applying make-up, wash your face with oil free face wash, and use cold water to close the pores on your skin so that the make-up won't clog them. Make sure to also wash your face every night before going to bed.

Tip #3- Use Cream For Acne

If your acne is severe, then you can use acne product to kill the bacterias and renew your skin.

Tip #4- Wash Your Face

You should wash your face every morning and nights. Germs builds up throughout the day and if you don't wash your face, the germs seep into your skin. Then your body's natural defense system, known as the immune system, sends white blood cells to keep the germs from entering further into the body which leads to the development of pimples containing puss. So wash your face, don't give it time to absorb.

Tip #5- Don't Touch Your Face

Your hands carry a lot more germs than your face. So, when you touch your face, you quadruple the number of germs on your face. You should never pop the pimples on your face. The puss that comes out is germs, and it will spread to other areas of your face when popped, causing more pimples.
