Things You Should Avoid Doing To Maintain A Soft Face Skin

You might be treating pimples on your face but still keep seeing new pimples and blackouts. How you care for your skin might be a blame and you have no idea. Here are some important things you should avoid so as to Completly get rid of acne.

1. Sharing makeup, makeup brushes or makeup applicants

Even if you use only non-comedogenic products, sharing makeup can lead to blemishes. Acne isn’t contagious, but when you share makeup, makeup brushes, or applicators, the acne-causing bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells on other people’s skin can wind up in your makeup. When you use that makeup, you can transfer their bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells to your skin. These can clog your pores, leading to breakouts. Make sure you’re the only person who uses your makeup, makeup brushes, and makeup applicators.

2. Sleeping in your makeup

Even non-comedogenic makeup can cause acne if you sleep in it. Remove your makeup before you go to bed. No exceptions. If you’re too tired to wash your face, use a makeup remover towelette. Just make sure it’s a non-comedogenic towelette.

3. Squeezing breaking out pimples

When you pop or squeeze acne, you’re likely to push some of what’s inside (e.g., pus, dead skin cells, or bacteria) deeper into your skin. When this happens, you increase inflammation. This can lead to more-noticeable acne and sometimes scarring and pain. Resist the temptation to pop or squeeze acne. You want to treat your acne with acne medication. If you have deep or painful acne, seeing a dermatologist is necessary to help clear your acne.

4. Scrubbing your skin

To get rid of acne, you may be tempted to scrub your skin clean. Don’t. Scrubbing can irritate your skin, causing acne to flare. Be gentle when washing your face and other skin with acne. You want to use a mild, non-comedogenic cleanser. Apply the cleanser lightly with your fingertips, using a circular motion. Gently rinse it off with warm water, using only your fingers. Then pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

5. Changing to a new pimples treatment every week or so

This approach can irritate your skin, which can cause breakouts. Give an acne treatment time to work. You want to use a product for 6 to 8 weeks. It takes that long to see some improvement. If you don’t see any improvement by then, you can try another product. Complete clearing generally takes 3 to 4 months.

Trying to avoid the above things can really help you get rid of pimples, therefore try the best you can to avoid them.
