Want To Permanently Get Rid Of Acne? Read This
If you are plagued with acne, it may seem like you will never have the clear skin you have always dreamed of. Months or even years of trying this soap and that cream can leave you feeling defeated. Acne does not have to rule your life, though. This article will provide some simple, easy-to-follow tips to help you get your acne under control once and for all.
In order to help rid yourself of acne, try to use only natural products on your skin. A lot of products today contain chemicals which not only hurt your skin but also can cause your acne to become worse. Some great skin products to look into would be tea tree oil and cocoa butter.
Using aloe vera lotion on a daily basis can have a positive effect on acne break outs. Aloe vera has skin soothing properties. It can reduce redness and minimize scarring. Apply it to your skin twice a day, in the morning and before bed, for best results.
Try wet strawberry leaves. This is an age-old trick disabled dating back to the Egyptians. To improve their complexion, they used wet strawberry leaves. Dampen the leaves with water and put the leaves on the irritated area or pimple. Leave it there until it dries for the best results.
A clean and natural look is best if your skin is prone to acne. Makeup can clog pores and cause more pimples, even when you’re just trying to hide the ones you already have. Makeup applicators, such as sponges and brushes, tend to spread the bacteria. Throw out any applicators you are currently using and don’t apply makeup again until your skin is totally zit-free.
Acne can be treated efficiently by a professional dermatologist. If your insurance covers dermatology visits, or you have the finances to pay on your own, you should go see a dermatologist. Dermatologists have deep knowledge about all types of skin problems and will select the most effective, medical-grade techniques to treat your specific type of acne.
Keep in mind that acne is not caused by dirt and that washing your face excessively is not the way to get rid of it. The truth is that washing your face too much can cause the problem to get worse because it can take too much oil from your skin and leave it irritated.
Find out if the medicines you’re using for your acne, whether oral or topical, can cause you to be more sensitive to the sun. If so, avoid going out in the sun even if you’re wearing sunscreen. The burn you receive can cause your skin to thicken and even more pores will become clogged.
Now that you are armed with some proven tips and tricks and have some good, solid advice, you can begin the journey to clear skin. It takes a bit of time and commitment to get your acne under control, but if you stick with the process, you can have the clear skin you dream of.
