The moment you see a pimple forming on your face, shit happens. If you’re one of the people who are heavily prone to acne, you know that it is nothing less than a war. You try various things to get rid of the pimple- homemade remedies, acne fighting creams, the classic ‘popping the pimple’ and the people’s favorite- go to sleep hoping that the pimple disappears the next morning.
You wake up the next day and run to the mirror only to find out that the pimple is now bigger and your life, well, it’s a living hell. So what’s the solution to this never-ending struggle? Well, the answer is pretty simple. If you know you have skin that is prone to acne, you need to start indulging a daily skincare routine.
A skin care routine is not just limited to using facewash and applying cream; there’s a lot more than goes into a skincare routine. Read on to find out:
Choose skin cleansing products specifically meant for acne-prone skin: Ever wondered why you find shelves full of different skin products? It’s because different skin types require specific products. Choose skin products that contain ingredients that are best suited for acne-prone skin.
Never ever pop a pimple: Popping a pimple is something only the devil will do because all it does is make things worse. It is not even an option when it comes to treating acne but if you are a fan of scars, go ahead and pop those pimples. Good luck!
Choose your makeup wisely: Makeup may make your skin look like heaven but what follows is days and days of hell in the form of acne. Stick to mineral based and chemical free cosmetics as much as possible as mineral based cosmetics contain ingredients like silica, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide that soaks up excess oil and prevents the clogging of pores.
Wash your face daily: If you have acne prone skin, this step is something that you just cannot afford to skip. Ensure that you wash your face once in the morning right after you wake up, once after you return home from work/school and once right before you go to sleep. It is an ideal way to get rid of the impurities that can possibly lead to acne breakouts.
Eat right: What you eat shows on your skin. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you make the shift from oily fried food to healthy nourishing food. Remember, you might not be able to see it but internally, a well balanced can do wonders for your skin.
Stay hydrated: Staying hydrated is almost the solution to all types of problems and acne is no different. Drinking water flushes out the impurities and bacteria from your system which leads to acne and skin problems.
