What to do to help get rid of face acne

What you should be doing:

1. Clean your face twice a day, morning and night. Use a natural soap sich as glycerine or a face cleanser that is designed for your skin type. When cleaning your skin and rinsing it with water move from the neck to the hairline, that way you are not likely to spread hair oils over your face which can aggravate acne.

2. If you work out and sweat, clean your face after you exercise.

3. Use a moisturizer for your skin type. Even if your skin is oily, don’t ignore this important part of your daily routine. Your skin needs protection. Over-drying your skin will not do any good, on the contrary, the oil glands will start working even harder.

4. Choose cosmetics made for your skin type.

5. Use products with fruit acids. They help to shed old skin cells and prevent pore clogging. You are not likely to see the results overnight, but be patient and stick to the treatment.

6. Protect your skin from wind and harsh environment as they make skin prone to infections.

7. Shampoo your hair regularly. Oil glands on your scalp produce the same sebum as those on your face.

8. Drink lots of water to clean your body of toxins and keep your skin hydrated from the inside.

9. Take vitamins and eat a healthy diet. People who suffer from acne often don’t get enough vitamin A in their diets. Zinc supplements are known to fight acne outbreaks. Healthy eating is good for all parts of your body. While diet changes alone won’t spare you of acne, they will help your skin look better.

10. See a doctor if your acne is severe.

What not to do:

1. Don’t use drying cleansers and harsh scrubs. They destroy the protective barrier and alter skin pH, making skin vulnerable and prone to infections. Astringents should be used on oily areas only.

2. Don’t squeeze zits. This is the worst thing to do, and for many the hardest to avoid.

3. Don’t scratch or rub your skin. Sometimes rubbing can cause zits on otherwise clear complexion.

4. Don’t tan. Even though tan will mask the blemishes, the effect is temporary. Excessive sun exposure can aggravate acne. Many over-the-counter and prescription acne products make your skin sensitive to sun. In addition to causing skin dehydration and premature aging, UV rays destroy cells responsible for skin’s immunology.
