Simple Acne Treatments To Get Rid Of Pimples On Your Face by Codedrock(m): 11:41am On Dec 08, 2019


1. Keep your hands off your face!

All dermatologists agree that you should never, ever pick at your pimple. We repeat: Do not pick at your pimple. “It may seem tempting, but remember that once you’ve picked at an acne lesion, it will take longer to heal and is more likely to scar,” warns dermatologist Dr. Doris Day, author of 100 Questions and Answers About Acne. Trust us on this one.

2. Skip home “remedies.”

While toothpaste, lemon juice, and even Windex have been cited as excellent at-home remedies for blemishes, derms advise against them. “Toothpaste is more complicated than it used to be and can irritate or over-dry your skin,” warns Dr. Day. “Lemon juice is also irritating and wouldn’t have any effect on the pimple itself.” And Windex — well, it’s glass cleaner. Don’t put glass cleaner on your face.

3. Apply a warm compress.

Heat is a super simple way to soothe your skin if you feel a blemish coming on, says Dr. Margarita Lolis, dermatologist at Skin and Laser Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey. “Use a warm compress or steam to bring everything to the surface,” she explains. And once your pimple appears, apply a spot treatment. Alternately, you can use a cold compress to bring down the swelling of a particularly large, painful blemish.

4. Use an acne spot treatment.

On top of always washing off your makeup at night, using the right moisturizer for your skin type, and keeping your fingers away from your face, you can use a spot treatment to get rid of stubborn pimples. Ingredients to look out for: Benzoyl peroxide to kill acne-causing bacteria, salicylic acid to help exfoliate and unclog pores, and retinoids to help control cell turnover, which allows clogged cells to shed and prevents them from clogging.

5. Wash your face regularly.

“Your oil glands are active all day,” explains Dr. Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic & Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital; when that oil combines with dirt, makeup, and pollution, it’s not doing your skin any favors. Amapiano 2020
That goes double for workouts: “Sweat mixed with dirt and oil can become trapped under wet workout clothing,” potentially worsening a breakout. “If you can’t take a full shower,” Dr. Zeichner says, “at least use a cleansing towelette,” like Good Housekeeping Beauty Breakthrough Award winner and Seal-holder, Olay Daily Facials.

6. In a pinch, get a cortisone shot.
Have a really big event coming up? Then, you probably don’t have time to wait and see if your blemish will disappear on its own. Consider seeing a dermatologist for an overnight cure. “A cortisone shot is an anti-inflammatory, so it treats the pimple itself,” explains Dr. Peredo.

“If it’s a big, painful pimple, the cortisone diffuses the inflammation and flattens it out, hopefully without leaving a scar.” Of course, this isn’t an easy, at-home DIY fix. It should only be administered by a physician, usually a dermatologist, and it is often covered by insurance if you have acne.

7. Try a salicylic acid cleanser.

If your breakouts are frequent and you’re sick of it, you may want to consider switching up your skincare routine. “Pick a cleanser that has glycolic or salicylic acid in it, which you can get over the counter,” Dr. Peredo instructs. “Those with acne-prone skin may need an astringent to degrease the skin, too — I like salicylic or glycolic, because they can help with the scarring that could occur, as well.”


8. Go light on your makeup.

Beauty products are one of the most common causes of adult acne, and unfortunately, using heavy duty makeup to hide your blemishes won’t make them physically disappear.
“Use mineral makeup on your skin rather than oil-based products that can contribute to breakouts,” recommends Dr. Peredo, adding that oil-based foundation and concealer can block pores. Better yet, go totally makeup-free for a few days — it could be just the break your skin needs to clear up quick.

9. Medicate if necessary.
For those who suffer from cystic acne, a combination of topical products, in-office treatments (like lasers), and medication are often times the way to go. A dermatologist can work with you to find medications that will help treatment in the long-run. see: new south african songs
“Nodular acne often requires treatment with systemic medications such as oral antibiotics, and hormonal medications (oral contraceptives, spironolactone),” says Valerie Harvey, MD, a dermatologist based in Virginia. “Isotretinoin, a derivative of vitamin A, is also very effective.”

10. Use light therapy to zap acne.

Instead of going to your dermatologist for red and blue light therapy (which can cost upwards of $100), use an at-home device over a blemish, or over your whole face, for just two minute. The red light reduces acne inflammation, while the blue light targets acne-causing bacteria. Additionally, the light stimulates the dermal layers of the skin and produce additional collagen. In turn, acne scars fill out and the skin looks more even-toned.

Very good thread.

In addition to the OP's tips,
You can never go wrong with Aloe Vera,
Moisturize your face With Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a tropical plant whose leaves produce a clear gel.
The gel is often added to lotions, creams, ointments and soaps. It's commonly used to treat abrasions, rashes, burns and other skin conditions.

When applied to the skin, aloe vera gel can help heal wounds, treat burns and fight inflammation.

How to Use It : Scrape the gel from the aloe plant out with a spoon.Apply gel directly to clean skin as a moisturizer.Repeat 1–2 times per day, or as desired.

You can also buy aloe vera gel from the store, but make sure it is pure aloe without any added ingredients.

SUMMARY :When applied to the skin, aloe vera gel can help heal wounds, treat burns and fight inflammation.

From all of us @MANNABBQGRILLS : Good Luck as you work towards having a smooth face for the upcoming festive season!

YorubaAmaka:
you must not apply any gel, me for example, I don't apply anything on my body, but my skin still looks like a new born baby skin. wink
Osheeey!
Handsome bobo!
cheesy
We hope you are not one of the 'yoruba demons' sha!

JasperVII:

Nice. I read somewhere that it can also be applied on the skin after shaving to prevent itching and discomfort, but I am yet to try it because I haven't confirmed it. Does anyone know if it's true?

People that do that told us it is true.
You are safe to use it.

There’s only one treatment to acne that’s NEO Medrol acne lotion.


BTW: acne will keep coming if you don’t realizes what causes it, it’s what you takes in. Flew from this list below then you’ll be free from useless pimples


1: tea and bread, anything milk stop taking milk for some months then come back for a testimony

2: stop eating too much sugar or food like Fufu, starch, Eba is perfectly okay

3: stop bathing with cold water. Bathing with cold water gonna worsen your acne outbreaks

4: apply Neo medrol acne to your face before going to
bed


Just follow this four steps before you’ll be fine, I’ve conducted this therapy on myself and over 1000 people and it work perfectly give a try and come back later.
