Let’s face it: Acnes are ugly. They also leave behind annoying scars. Try out 6 different countermeasures below and say “bye-bye” to the evils on your skin.
1. Don’t pick red cyst
Being a picker, pick it on, red cyst will teach you who the boss is. Nothing came out, all that aggression only gets your red cyst redder and bigger. The best way is to “leave it alone”, and work on the more methodical steps as follows:
2. “Too much of a good thing can be very bad”
Washing a couple of time per day is normal. However, in this case, over-washing is never called clean. Cleansing too often destroys the mantle that serves as a protective barrier of natural oils, leaves your skin to dry out and irritates the existing acne. Also, if you insist on being “clean & cleansed” for too long, your immune system will not get used to those acne-causing bacteria that you eventually will encounter anyway, leading to even more serious breakouts. The key point how to get rid of acnes here is balance.
3. Alcohol is never good for your health nor skin
Alcohol in cosmetics does not mean “happy for 8 hours straight”, as the alcoholic content evaporates, it can dry out the surface of your skin, opening up pores and preparing the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Desiccating the skin hurts its ability to heal and to fight inflammation and actually encourages bacterial growth the next time the skin is hydrated after a long draught.

4. Salicylic acid 0.5-2% is the Grade-A acne-fighter
People may say Benzoyl Peroxide is first class, but many people experiences drying in high percentage. Salicylic acid is a BHA that can exfoliate the built-up dead skin cells on the surface of the skin as well as inside the pores. With its antibacterial properties, this type of BHA will reduce redness, help the skin heal, and decrease the chance of further breakouts. The concentration must be at least 0.5% to put into effect.
Treating blemishes with the stuff people usually think causes them is one of the best way to get rid of them. Acne is actually caused by bacteria called Propionibacterium living in the oil gland of the skin, which is why antibiotics can often help clear it up. It’s proven that the natural tea plant oil can help the body get accustomed to and be able to kill bacteria and fungi on its own without drying up the skin surface.
6. Makeup to hide or off to heal?
Too thick or too greasy makeup texture may break the very purpose for which your skin exists. Silicone in some foundations and other makeup products can clog up skin pores, creating an enclosed environment for blemishes to grow. Make sure anything you apply to your skin says “non-comedogenic” or “non-acnegenic”.
Take the camera on and take a selfie, because acne is far gone.
