1. Choose a gentle soap or cleanser each day.
You should pick up a soap or cleanser which is specially designed to an acne-prone skin, which will regulate the quantity of sebum the skin produces and will be less likely to irritate sensitive skin. It also assist you in getting rid of dead cells, where germs thrive and cause acne.
– try lipid-free liquid cleansers. These sort of cleansers don’t contain soap, so they are gentler on your skin. They also don’t contain oils or fats, so you are less likely to break out when you use these cleansers
– use synthetic detergents to wash your face. These cleansers have a pH that is very similar to your skin so it is less likely that they will irritate or dry out your skin like some soaps do.
Aspirin is anti-inflammatory and a quick and cheap way to reduce a pimple. The simplest way to use it is to make a paste with 3 parts water to 1 part aspirin. Once the mixture had thickened apply to the aggravated area. The paste will take roughly half an hour to harden and begin to flake off.
In addition to being sweet and delicious, honey is a natural antibiotic which makes it perfect for healing and reducing pimples. Also its stickiness aids in removing impurities and excess dirt from your skin. Mix two tablespoons of the honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon and apply it to your face. Allow the mixture to set for roughly ten minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
Toothpaste is a very good choice for a mammoth pimple that you want to get rid off quickly. It contains silica, the same substance that can be found in bags of beef jerky to keep moisture out. As such, toothpaste has been know to dry out and reduce the size of pimples over night. Simply apply some to the affected area before sleep and wash it off in the morning.
5. Try not to touch much the face throughout the day.
Your fingers can collect a lot of bacteria by touching things during your daily activities. When you touch your face without washing your hands first, you are unwittingly spreading germs and bacteria on to your face that could ultimately lead to a breakout.
If you do have to touch your face, try to wash your hands before doing so. Even applying some hand sanitizer to your fingers can help keep your face from breaking out.
6. Avoid popping pimples.
You may see a pimple and feel the urge to pop it out. It is important to remember that pimples contain bacteria and when you pop a pimple, that bacteria can land on other parts of your skin, creating more pimples. Your fingers can also pose a bacterial threat. When you pop your pimple with your nails, any bacteria that is under your nails could get into the now open pimple-wound, causing further infection.
7. Use Cucumber
Cucumber is anti-inflammatory and that’s why people use slices of cucumber for puffy eyes. They work as well on pimple and will assist in reducing the strong redness on them. Mixed with lemon juice, it can be applied on face, left for three minutes and then rinsed off.
8. Use garlic
There are two ways you can use garlic to clear up acne. The first is a preventative measure, which is simply by adding more garlic to your diet. This helps your general health as well as purifies your blood, which can help to stop future break outs.
For more immediate results, take a peeled clove of garlic and rub it on the troubled area several times a day. If your skin is sensitive, try crushing the garlic and mixing it with some water.
