When you are a teenager, acne can be a real problem even for adults it can be a problem. Pimples can really ruin your day and they have the tendency to always come back and ruin your looks. It is not easy to get rid of acne and when it comes to learning how to get rid of acne, here are some useful tips for you.
First of all, it is really important to stay hydrated meaning drink lots of water. Water helps to flush out a lot of the toxins that add to the bacteria and the surplus of sebum in the body. Plenty of water, a quantity at least 8 glasses daily will help the body to get rid of these toxins.
Your diet is equally important. Watch what you eat! Avoid fatty food (especially fast foods containing large amounts of oil) because that can cause excess sebum on the skin. Vitamin A rich food can help to detoxify the body and also help to repair damaged skin. Green tea is well known for containing a lot of Vitamin A as well as all yellowish/orange fruit and vegetable, apricots, cantaloupe, carrots, yams, spinach, kale and parsley. Don’t overdo it to much Vitamin A can be toxic.
Watch what kind of product you put onto your skin. Oil-based make up, hair products and other cosmetics help to build up the oil on your skin, which is one of the major causes of acne.
Harsh soaps and facial scrubs are products that need to be avoided if you want to get rid of acne. Most of these products claim they get rid of dirt and oil, exfoliating the skin at the same time. These products usually irritate the skin and damage the sebaceous glands and therefore cause acne breakouts that are more severe. As long as you have no contact with oils not produced by the body, there is no need for those products.
Nevertheless it is important to shower regularly (twice a day) and wash the face often but with a mild soap, which is one way of how to get rid of acne.
Don’t ever pinch or poke your pimples. Lots of people decide to pinch out their blackheads, zits and pimples. Not a good idea as the fingers are usually covered with dirt (bacteria) and unnatural oils. And what happens as well, the sebaceous glands are most likely being damaged which causes more fluid build up and then create an infected pimple or even worse the acne can spread.
If at all possible avoid stress, which promotes hormonal changes in the body and can cause acne flare ups.
Those are just a few tips on how to get rid of acne.
