Do you feel you’ve tried just everything to get rid of acne but still see blemishes? Don’t despair. To see clearer skin, you probably just need to make some changes.
So today, I will be suggesting you some tips which worked for me in clearing acne.
1. Give an Acne Treatment at least 4 Weeks to Work Using a new acne product every few days may seem useful, but that approach can worsen acne. Acne treatment needs time to work. Using a different product every few days can also irritate your skin, causing new breakouts. If a treatment works for you, you should notice some improvement in 4 to 6 weeks. It can take two to three months or longer to see clearing.
If you notice improvement, keep using the treatment. Even when you see clearing, you'll want to keep using the acne treatment. This helps to prevent new breakouts.
2. Attack the Different Causes of Acne If you don’t see improvement after 4 to 6 weeks, add a second acne product to your treatment plan. This approach can help attack the different causes of acne, bacteria, clogged pores, oil, and inflammation can all cause acne.
The second treatment should attack a different cause of acne. For example, if you are using an acne treatment that contains benzoyl peroxide, the second acne treatment should contain another acne-fighting ingredient.
While using an acne treatment can seem pretty straightforward, how much you use and how often you use it can make a huge difference. Be sure to follow the directions. If a dermatologist created your treatment plan, follow your doctor's instructions and use everything your dermatologist included in the treatment plan.
4. Wash your Face Twice a Day and After Sweating Acne-prone skin is sensitive. Washing more than twice a day can irritate your skin, making acne worse.
For best results, wash your face when you:
Are ready to go to bed
Have a sweaty face
5. Stop Scrubbing your Face and Other Acne-Prone Skin If your skin feels greasy, dirty, or grimy, you may be tempted to scrub it clean. Don’t! Scrubbing can irritate acne-prone skin, which worsens acne.
Hope these tips help you fight acne like they helped me!
