What can I do about my Acne?
Seeking advice from a professional skin care therapist. Sticking to a regular, daily skincare regimen. For severe, persistent acne requires the professional assistance of a dermatologist. These doctors can provide proper medications for severe acne.

The dermis on the face can be permanently scarred by the continuous presence of acne eruptions that are common in severe cases. This is why you should not wait to seek help right away.

People can often say that having acne is no big deal, but that’s far from true. Several studies have shown that acne can diminish a person’s quality of life. Having acne can lead to depression and anxiety. Acne can make people feel ugly. It can destroy a person’s self-confidence. People can feel so badly that they stop hanging out with friends. Acne can even cause adults to call in sick rather than face a day at work.

Tips:

  • Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and mild cleanser made for people with acne. Don’t scrub.
  • Don’t pop pimples. It’s tempting, but here’s why you shouldn’t: popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring.
  • Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated.
  • Remove your make-up before you go to sleep. When buying make-up, make sure you choose brands that say noncomedongenic or choose mineral make-up.
  • Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it is only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it.
