Unfortunately, teenagers are not the only ones susceptible to getting pimples. So what are some ways to get rid of them? In this article we will look at how to get rid of pimples without causing damage to your skin.
One of the best things you can do to get rid of your pimples is make sure that things are not touching your face. Especially anything that may have dirt on it such as shirt collar, caps or your hands as they all have dirt and bacteria on them. Constant contact with dirt, bacteria, and oil will result in your pimples becoming much worse due to the abrasion and pore-clogging elements.
Do not use dehydrating anti-acne solutions if you have dry skin. Such solutions will cause your skin to produce more oil which in turn increases the risk of your pores becoming blocked. Blocked pores then results in more pimples forming.
Here is one for you men. When shaving do not shave the wrong way. It is important that you shave the same way that the hairs on your face grow. If you shave in the opposite direction then you will be cutting off small pieces of skin which are lifted up with the hairs. These areas of sore skin will be more prone to infection.
If you need to use a lot lotion, use one which contains carbamide. This will help to keep your skin moisturized after you have washed it. Carbamide is a great way of tuning your skin's moisture balance in a more natural way. You could also add some sore cortisone gel to your treatment if your skin is irritated.
You could also try the following method of getting rid of pimples. Every 30 minutes you should apply an ice pack to the pimple and then hold it there for about 2 minutes. Doing this will help to decrease the swelling and redness. It also helps to shrink the inflammation and sometimes the pain that people will feel with their zits.
By following the tips provided above on how to get rid of pimples you will notice some significant changes in the very near future (sometimes within a day or two). But if the problem is repeating or it becomes worse, take a trip to see your doctor or dermatologist who will be able to suggest a good daily skin cleansing routine for your particular skin type.
