10 May How You Can Get Rid of Acne
Dealing with acne problems is just part of being a teenager. Part of what helps us deal with acne as teenagers is knowing that everyone else in our age group is going through the same problems. Puberty is supposed to be the worst of our acne years; by adulthood we’re supposed to be mostly finished with it. This is one of the reasons that finding those rogue pimples or having those sporadic breakouts can be so embarrassing. Finding a few zits or pimples in the morning can be enough to send a fully grown adult into a childhood regression. Adult acne is often very painful, which is another reason so many adults dread breaking out. No matter what number your age starts with, use these hints to help you deal with your next breakout.
Get Enough Vitamins and Minerals
Are you getting all of the vitamins and nutrients that you need? It might sound odd, but some peoples’ bodies react to an imbalance in diet by breaking out. Acne is sometimes a sign that you are not getting the right vitamins and minerals that you need. The easiest way to deal with this is to take a multi-vitamin every day. The multi-vitamin won’t take care of all of your nutritional needs but it can help you make up for some of the areas in which you are lacking. When you aren’t properly nutritioned, your body will start to produce extra sebum which then clogs your pores and causes zits and pimples to appear (and makes it easier to get sick). So make sure that you are eating the right foods and getting enough vitamins and nutrients.
Hands Off Your Face
Do your best to keep your hands away from your face. How often are you aware of the time your hands spend touching your face? Letting your face rest in your hands is just one way to clog your pores. Think about it for a minute. Touching your face after you touch an object is sort of like resting your face on the object that you touched. When rest your face in your hands, the oil from your hands is transferred to your face and clogs the pores. Your face is a prime entry location for germs which is why touching your face is one of the ways that the flu is transmitted from others to you: you touch something that has been touched by a sick person and then touch your face: viola! you have the flu! So keep your hands off of your face.
What about the natural products that are already in your kitchen and bathroom that could help you combat those zits? Did you know that toothpaste might be able to cure pimples? Squeeze some toothpaste onto a pimple or zit after it has formed and leave it on overnight. When you wake up, you will see that the pimple or zit has gotten a lot smaller (do not try this if you have pets who roam free at night because tasting the toothpaste could make them very sick). Egg whites are also supposed to be fantastic cleansers and pimple reducers. Try making a mask with your egg whites if dabbing them directly onto an existing breakout doesn’t clear it up.
Getting rid of your acne does not have to be complicated or cost a lot of money. Cleaning your face regularly will help you fight against acne. Go easy on your face so that you don’t damage the sensitive skin there! It is possible to give your face a thorough cleaning without stripping away the skin on your face!
