Have you got really bad acne? Everybody’s skin type is different, and sometimes things that need to be done to get rid of your zits sometimes can only be determined by a dermatologist. However, there are a couple of basic skin care steps which usually can help make your pimples disappear.
1) Wash your face in the morning and night with a facial cleanser. Regular bar soap really doesn’t cut-it for your face. There are different kinds of facial cleansers available, and you might need to experiment with a couple to see what works best for you. There are two main ingredients which you can find in acne facial cleansers. Some cleansers, like Proactiv Solution and Clearasil use the main ingredient benzoyl peroxide. Depending on the skin type, this often can work really well in making your zits disappear. However, for some people it can also prove a little irritating, which is why some other cleansers have salicylic acid (or a salicylic/beta-hydroxy acid combo) instead. NuSkin’s Clear Action Foaming Cleanser and Neutrogena’s Oil Free Acne wash both contain salicylic acid. Other over-the-counter pads like Stri-dex also have salicylic acid. So, if a benzoyl peroxide cleanser like Proactiv doesn’t work for you, try a cleanser with salicylic acid instead.
2) After washing your face, use a toner and moisturizer on your skin. Toners are a great way to make your zits disappear! They prevent future zits from popping up by wiping away any extra dirt and oil on your face. Use a clean cotton ball when applying toner to your face – using tissue or toilet paper can leave tiny flakes of paper which can irritate your skin. Then, make sure that you put a moisturizer on your face as well. If you have combination to oily skin, use a light moisturizer for your skin type. Your skin needs to have the right balance of moisture – too little or too much moisturizer on your face can cause zits too.
3) Use “spot treatments” on your zits! There are acne “spot treatments” that you can use to help shrink your zits down too. NuSkin has great treatments for the day and the night. The Day Treatment is clear so that people can’t tell you’re wearing it, and the Night Treatment is a more concentrated formula that has a yellowish color. These spot treatments also contain salicylic acid. Other spot treatments can also be found at local drugstores and over-the-counter.
4) Oral medication also can help make your zits disappear. Sometimes your acne is so bad that you need to have some type of oral medication or antibiotic to help get them to leave! In this case, you will probably need to see a dermatologist to find out what the best thing is for you. One other thing you can try, however, is a product called Nature’s Cure. This homeopathic product comes with all-natural ingredients in tablet form. These tablets come with a type of “spot treatment” for your face, and there are formulas for both boys and girls.
Above all, one of the most important things to do to make your zits disappear is not to pick and them or pop them. This can not only cause scarring on your face, but it can further irritate you skin and cause new zits to also appear! Plus, the oils from your fingers also can cause more zits when your touch and pick at your face. It’s better to just not mess with your zits that way, and just let the treatments do their thing. Hopefully some of these suggestions will help your pimples to disappear!
