How To Get Rid of Acne And Blemishes

17 Jan

Microdermabrasion is one way to get rid of blemishes, but there are other ways too. Here’s how to get rid of ugly blackheads, white zits and embarrassing pimples.

1.       Exfoliate

One of the best ways to achieve clean and clear skin is to exfoliate. Simply take your favourite exfoliating shower gel and rub the gentle abrasives all over your body. This will help get rid of any dead skills cells that might be blocking your pores and will reveal and more radiant complexion. Acne can make life a misery, so the next time you’re in the shower – get scrubbing.

2.       Try a strawberry face mask

If you suffer from spots on your face, why not make your own strawberry facemask? The salicylic acid found in this red fruit is supposed to cure bad skin so raid your kitchen cupboards and get creative. Simply mash 3 – 4 strawberries in a bowl and mix them with a tablespoon of sour cream. This mixture should soothe any irritations and will help you to feel more body confident.

3.       Let your skin breathe

When you get home from work or school, remove all your makeup and let your skin breathe. Foundation can clog up your pores, so wipe off any cosmetic products using a face wipe. If you plaster your face in gunk every day, try to reduce the amount of makeup you wear to see if that makes a difference. Alternatively, talk to your doctor because you might be allergic to something you apply to your face.

4.       Identify blemish marks

If you only get blemishes in certain places, look to see what could be causing the marks. Does your forehead become sweaty after wearing a cap or is your jumper rubbing on your neck? Try to make small lifestyle changes to see if anything makes a difference – you never know what might clear up your problem. Non-surgical procedures such as Botox and microdermabrasion can improve your skin but it’s also wise to take a look at your daily regime.

5.       Drink water

Many people drink several litres of sugary pop a day and this can be really bad for your skin. Try swapping sugary juices for water and see if this clears up your skin. Water helps to purge the body of toxins, so get drinking! Sometimes small changes can really help, so take a good like at what you eat and drink on a daily basis.

Spots can make life miserable, so take the time to revamp your complexion.
