In this article, we talk about how to treat and prevent pimples.
- Creams and ointments: Benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and sulfur are great for treating and preventing pimples from popping up.
- Warm compress: A warm compress can soften the spot, allowing pus to come to the surface. It can help also help a blind pimple come to a head.
- Facials: This isn’t absolutely necessary but steaming and “deep-cleaning” pores is quite effective and useful for people with whiteheads and blackheads.
- Cleansers: Some studies have found non-soap cleansers to be better at treating acne than traditional soap.
- Tea tree oil: tea tree oil is very effective in reducing the number of acne lesions and times more effective at reducing the severity of an outbreak.
- Chemical peels: Whether the superficial peels (like glycolic acid) performed by estheticians.
- Regular washing: Wash face at least twice daily. Acne is typically caused by the skin producing excess oils and is not directly caused by poor hygiene. However, keeping the skin and hair clean can reduce outbreaks and prevent all kinds of pimples from developing. Once a pore becomes blocked by a combination of sebum and dead skin cells, it is easier for bacteria to enter and create a pimple
- Avoid touching the face. Frequent touching can spread dirt or oil and cause flare-ups.
- Choose products carefully. Always read the labels on make-up and facial products, opting for gentle, oil-free brands.
