Treat Your Acne Quickly And Effectively With These Tips

By Patric Campbell

At least once in their lives, people worldwide experience the problematic skin condition, scientifically called acne vulgaris, commonly known in layman's terms to everyone else as simply acne. Whether you call it acne vulgaris or simply acne, having it can be an annoying and sometimes painful experience. However, with the advice provided in this article, acne vulgaris can be treated.

If you have acne problems, make sure you're not scratch the pimples or popping them. While you may think it helps, it actually irritates the skin even more. Not only that, but if you pop the pimple, bacteria can get into the opening and cause a worse infection that makes the acne last longer or scar.

A great home remedy for clearing up acne is apple cider vinegar. It may not smell so good, but if you just put a tab on a cotton ball and rub it into the problem areas, you will have a clearer face by the time you wake up in the morning.

In order to prevent acne, you should wash your face daily. Use your hands to gently wash your face, using a mild cleanser and warm water. Rinse away the cleanser and gently pat dry (don't rub) your face with a clean disposable towel. Doing so should remove dirt, oil, and dead skin and keep your pores clean.

If you have acne, avoid using makeup applicators and tools that can't be washed or disposed of. Bacteria can multiply on makeup brushes, sponges and pads unless they are washed regularly. This bacteria is then deposited onto your skin whenever you apply makeup and can cause acne outbreaks or skin infections.

When you have a lot of swelling or redness on your face from blemishes, try using a papaya mask. This ingredient helps to control the irritation on your face and create a soothing sensation that is great for acne prone skin. Do this once every week at night to maximize the effectiveness of the solution.

To help clear up the skin on your face, sleep on a clean pillow case every night. Each night, dirt and oils from your skin get absorbed by your pillow case. If you use the same pillow case night after night, these oils will get put back on your skin while you sleep, often causing acne and blackheads. Using a clean pillow case avoids this problem.

If you are concerned about acne, increase the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. Specifically, look for foods that are high in carbohydrates, but have a low glycemic index. Studies have shown that these foods have the potential to reduce the amount of acne you have by 50 percent.

As stated before, acne vulgaris affects people worldwide at least once in their lifetime. Though it may not be a pleasant experience, it can be treated, provided that you use the advice found in this article. Once you know how to treat it, you'll never have to live with acne again.
