If your experiences with acne have been anything like mine, every time it seems like you might win the battle against acne, new painful pimples pop up and ruin your complexion again.
I’ve spent years trying to combat acne, but it was always a losing battle until I came up with this simple three part process to get acne relief quickly!
There really are only three important aspects of skin care to focus on to achieve clear beautiful skin — and they are not magic secrets, just three sensible steps.
1 – Avoid Dehydration!
Our bodies are made up of mostly water, and it is the most important thing to put in your body, especially if you want clear skin! Drinking lots of water will help keep your skin beautiful and hydrated and it is the easiest and most helpful thing you can do to keep your skin clear.
Every process in your body needs water to function, especially your kidneys, which remove excess wastes from your body. If toxins are not flushed out, they can lead to embarrassing and unsightly acne.
2 – Avoid “One Size Fits All” Acne Prevention Plans
Every person’s skin is different, so every person’s acne prevention plan will be a little different too. Picking a product to help prevent acne can seem completely overwhelming when you are standing in the drugstore aisle confronted with hundreds of bottles, but it’s not so hard.
If you have a lot of blackheads and whiteheads, you need to clear out those pores. If you have large red swollen pimples, you need a product to kill the bacteria infecting your pores.
So look carefully at your skin to figure out what problems you have. Then read the product labels to make sure they’re a good fit. Now you’ve got a customized acne prevention plan!
*Important Tip!* Make sure that you don’t attack your skin with too many products. That will only irritate your skin further. Figure out what specific problems you have first, and then aim to treat them.
3 – Don’t Let Existing Pimples Go Untreated
Unfortunately, even the best of skin care regimens will still allow a few pesky pimples through. The important thing to remember when a pimple appears is that you can get rid of it quickly if you treat it properly! Here are a couple tips to show you how to remove pimples.
First assess whether or not you can drain it. If it is near the surface of the skin and can be drained easily, go ahead. But if it is deep under your skin, don’t drain! It will only tear your skin and irritate it, making it more prone to infection and further pimples.
After you have decided whether or not you can drain, wash and dry the area. Then treat with a cream that will help dry it out. There are many of these available, just follow the directions carefully.
A final option is to use a cream that will help heal what is left of the pimple to prevent scarring. Neosporin works well for this, but use it sparingly as it is thick and oily and may clog pores!
