HOW DO I GET RID OF ACNE ON MY FACE?
Wash face twice to thrice in a day with mild cleanser as acne prone skin is sensitive
Always apply a water based moisturiser to keep skin hydrated as acne treatment tends to make skin dry
One can apply clindamycin gel or benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent cream over pimples to help it dry
Resist touching, picking, and popping your acne as it may worsen it
Acne prone skin feels oily and full of grime but avoid scrubbing the face as it worsens acne
Keep your mobile screen, pillowcases, scarves that touch your acne prone skin clean
If acne is mild following these steps might help. Any acne treatment requires atleast a month to work.
One should enlist a skin specialist’s help if above suggestions do not help or if acne is severe ie mainly pus filled lesions that is healing with marks and scars
Under a dermatologist’s supervision acne is totally treatable without leaving any scars and marks as treatment plan is always customised as per the requirement.
