Is there acne on your face? Do you want to get rid of it?

Pimples may appear on  your face due to stress or hormones. They come in different colors and size.

Pimples do not mean that your skin is dirty in any way. In reality, over-cleansing can annoy your skin much more.

Below are 7 ways how you can get rid of acne.

Use cleanser

If you want to get rid of acne, you may wash your face and the affected areas with a cleanser that is made for acne-prone skin.

Use a soft and clean washcloth to wipe your face. Use lukewarm water and a calm moving pressure for a minute or so and clean properly with room-temperature water.

If required, you may use a moisturizer that is particularly made for acne-prone skin. Some people believe that using aloe vera is comforting and healing for skin with acne.

Don’t force it

You should not pop a pimple with force. In case you find that a tender push is not enough, you may leave it as it is.

Putting hand on acne and pimple will make them redder and may cause swelling.

Put ice on the affected area

You can apply ice on the affected area for a few minutes. This will calm the swelling and reduce redness.

Also, this will make the spot less noticeable in the eyes of other people.

Keep your hands and nails clean

It is very important that you wash your hands properly and keep the hands and nails clean.

Do not touch the affected area with dirty hands. This may increase the redness and size of the acne.

Treat the acne very carefully just like you’ll treat an injury.

Use a prescribed medicine from the doctor

You may visit the doctor and take the medicine prescribed by him.

Your doctor may ask you to take Retin A. This medicine has particularly been made to treat acne.

As such, it will help dry the pustules and lessen the swelling. The drying may lead to some flaking. However, it can be remedied with a good moisturizer.

Apply concealer on the pimple

You may apply concealer on the pimple in order to make it look small and less red.

There are some concealers that have acne medicine and help in getting rid of the acne while covering it up.

Get some sunlight on your skin

You may spend some minutes every morning and get some sunshine on your skin.

Some people believe the bacteria that are causing acne will get destroyed by the rays of the sun.

This will enable you to heal the acne.

Hopefully the info provided, along with other natural treatments will help you reduce acne.
