Acne is the last thing we want on our face. Nothing can ruin a perfect day like a pimple can. Imagine you have a party to attend that you’ve been planning for ages, prepared with multiple visits to Singapore’s best facial treatments, only to wake up on the day of the party to find a red and a swollen bump on your face. Pimples can lead to stubborn acne, which needs a lot of time and effort to get rid of.
So, what causes acne in the first place?
Acne is usually the result of hormonal changes in the body. The hormones, usually known by the name of androgenic hormones, become active during the teens. Sensitivity to these hormones, plus, bacteria present on the skin, and fatty acids from the oil glands, all lead to acne.
The breakdown of acne usually includes blackheads, small bumps, whiteheads, and cysts.
Although acne is a common phenomenon, certain conditions may worsen the condition;
- Changes in hormonal levels in women
- Manipulating acne lesions
- Excessive sweating
So, whether its prom time or time for a new job interview, relax because there’s a treatment for everything.
Turn Towards Non-Comedogenic Products
There are some products on the market that can cause acne by clogging up your pores – products like makeup and cleansers should be checked for any potentially unhelpful ingredients before buying.
Wash Your Face Thoroughly
If acne is a big problem, make sure you wash your face twice. According to some dermatologists, acne is usually caused by the failure to remove makeup at the end of the day. Place makeup wipes near your bed, so that if you are too tired to get up, you can to use the wipes to clean off the makeup.
Use a Cleanser
There has been some debate about adding a gentle cleanser to your skincare routine. A gentle cleanser clears out the pores and primes the skin to absorb the nutrients from the acne medication while being gentle on the skin at the same time.
Don’t Take Over-the-Counter Medications Lightly
Some people don’t trust medications to help them with acne. They are wrong. The combination of benzoyl peroxide and Salicylic acid is great and do wonders for your skin if used correctly. If nothing else is working, try getting these over-the-counter medicines to apply on your skin. Make sure you follow the doctor’s prescription carefully.
Mix Anti-Inflammatories with Acne Busters
You might have heard that using the anti-inflammatories like hydrocortisone to your daily regimen will help eliminate stubborn acne. Combine the anti-inflammatories with a little benzoyl peroxide and apply on the pimple. Keep it overnight with plaster over it. You will notice a difference by morning.
Try to follow the methods mentioned above to get rid of acne. You can even try acne facials at the beauty care centres. A clear skin boosts confidence!
