While dealing with pimples is just part of life, it can become stressful and frustrating when acne starts to take over your face and mindset. Wondering how to get rid of acne? Here, we’ll give you six effective ways to treat and prevent acne.

 

1. Incorporate Sun Protection

 Never skip sunblock if you have acne-prone skin. Yes, it is true that using the wrong type of sunscreen for acne-prone skin can easily cause breakouts due to its chemical reaction. We understand that those acne sufferers and with oily skin hate sunscreen for a reason because it makes them break out because sunscreens are typically oil-based that it can leave your skin greasy feeling. Look for sunscreens that are acne-friendly where the ingredients don’t clog your pores or give you sun protection and keep your skin hydrated. Make sure you find a sunscreen with a strong SPF that will provide wide coverage to reduce any potential damage as your protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Exposing yourself to the sun for a long period of time can cause damage to your skin and lead to the development of more acne. Actually, wearing sunscreen if you have pimples is essential.

 

2. Use Mild Cleansers

When it comes to cleanse, blemish-fighting facial cleansers are the best face washes to get rid of acne. You can consider trying out both cleansers that are sensitive and are those formulated with active ingredients for your acne-fighting routine. Talk to your dermatologists about switching to an ultra-mild formula if your skin gets itchy, flaky, red and irritated to figure out which one you prefer for acne-prone skin.

 

3. Use Acne-Friendly Moisturizer

A moisturizer may be the last thing you’d think of trying, though, dermatologists agree that moisturizing is an essential step in every skin care routine. Acne-fighting cleansers often leave your face dry out and irritate the skin which may lead to more breakouts. You may want to look for an oil-free, non-comedogenic and won’t clog pores moisturizers to fight off a clogged pimple outbreak.  Using a moisturizer every day can be helpful anytime your skin feels dry and help your complexion to stay healthy and glowing.

 

4. Resist Touching Your Acne

Avoid popping a pimple. It may seem like the fastest way to clear it, but popping your pimple can actually make things worse. Every time you touch your face, pick, or pop, you can transfer dirt oils and bacteria worsen acne and blemish and are likely to increase inflammation.

Be aware that picking at pimples prolongs healing time, increasing your changes for inflammation and can cause scarring.

 

5. Wash Your Pillowcases Often

Yes it is! One of the unexpected causes of breakouts is your pillowcase. Probably changing your sheets once a week and your pillowcase two or three times a week can really make a difference. Dead skin cells, residual makeup, bacteria, dirt, and oil can build up on these surfaces and will rub off on your skin while you sleep. Interfering with your freshly washed face when you hit the dirty sheets and dirty pillow covers can clog your pores. Washing your pillowcases very often is especially important because it’s where you rest your face. Washing what touches your acne-prone skin like pillowcases, hats, phones and other things  can actually prevent breakouts and acne.
