Is your zits so bad that it gives you nightmares? Does the thought of going out in public make you want to go into hiding? If so, we have some tips that will help bring you out of hiding and have you wanting to show off your beautiful and clear skin.
If you suffer from chronic, long-term pimples, your diet may be to blame. An over-abundance of sugar especially is linked with acne. Also effective in treating and reducing the occurrence of acting is the elimination of other simple carbohydrates, such as bread, and high-fat dairy products from your diet.
Make a mask of egg whites. Egg whites have been known to prevent acne in some instances. Try making a facial mask out of egg whites. Leave it on for fifteen to twenty minutes before washing it off. Alternatively, you can apply egg whites directly to pimples. This will often greatly reduce redness and swelling.
Touching your face too often can lead to a case of acne. Bacteria, oil and dirt can easily transfer from your hands to your face and cause problems. It can also irritate skin that is already inflamed from a breakout. Touch your face only when necessary and never, ever pop a pimple with your fingers.
If you have aspirin laying around you can try an aspirin mask for your acne. Crush up several pills and add just enough water to make a mask. Apply this to the skin for about ten minutes. The ingredients in the aspirin will reduce the swelling and redness.
If an zits sufferer must shave afflicted areas, he or she should do so lightly. Shaving irritates the skin and can slice open pimples. Both of these effects can exacerbate an acne problem by spreading infectious bacteria and making nearby skin more susceptible. The lightest possible touch should be used when shaving pimples trouble spots.
If you suffer from unsightly blackheads and large pores, switch from bar soaps to a more gentle, water-soluble liquid cleanser. Many of the fillers used in bar soaps cause skin cells to flake off prematurely; the skin cells then accumulate and clog the pores. Choose a cleanser that does not leave a greasy residue on the skin, as this may make the problem worse.
Instead of investing in an expensive cream for pimples, look around at products you already have that may help alleviate breakouts. At night before you go to bed try dabbing a small amount of toothpaste, yes toothpaste, on your blemish. This will help you resist the urge to squeeze the pimples, and you will wake up with lessened redness and irritation.
If you must continue to wear makeup during severe acne breakouts, try decontaminating your makeup sponges, brushes and applicators. This is a very simple procedure, just wash them and dip them in rubbing alcohol after each use and leave to air dry. This will help keep your applicators clean, and rid them of oily residue left behind from oily skin.
