Acne is simply a part of your life when you are in your teen years. Part of what helps us deal with acne as teenagers is knowing that everyone else in our age group is going through the same problems. As adults, we are supposed to have grown out of the frequent breakouts of our puberty years. This is the main reason that adults do not deal well with the occasional zit or pimple and they get so embarrassed by the random breakout.
Finding a few zits or pimples in the morning can be enough to send a fully grown adult into a childhood regression. It can hurt quite a lot to have a breakout when you are an adult. Use these tips to help you fight your acne whether you are still in high school or are all grown up.
Keep Your Sheets Clean
You need to keep your sheets, blankets, and especially your pillowcases as clean as possible. Would you believe that there are lots of people out there who take a long time to change and clean their bedding? When you suffer from regular acne problems, you cannot let yourself fall into this kind of bad habit. You will want to wash your linens, especially your pillowcases every few day or two. Keeping your linens clean is the best way to help you make sure that your face stays clean while you are sleeping. Make sure you always wear clean clothes and pajamas. It seems silly, but if you are prone to breakouts, sometimes all it takes to start a fresh one is wearing the same shirt a couple of days in a row.
Get a Mild Cleanser
Take care to use beauty products that do not contain a lot of oil. Believe it or not sometimes even your facial cleanser has oil in it! The main goal of washing your face at all is to get rid of the oil that finds its way into your pores. While you are shopping be sure to check for oil before you buy any beauty products, cosmetics or cleansers. Instead of purchasing liquid or lotion-like cosmetics and beauty products, choose ones that use powder. Choose light cleansers instead of heavy cleansers that start out as solid bars or are almost syrupy in consistency. Use common sense and be careful!
Choose Natural Products
What about the natural products that are already in your kitchen and bathroom that could help you combat those zits? Did you know that toothpaste might be able to cure pimples? Put some toothpaste on your zits or pimples after they formed and then leave them alone overnight. The zit should be much smaller in the morning (do not try this if you have pets who might try to lick the toothpaste off of your face while you sleep, doing so could make them sick). Egg whites, when used as facial cleansers can do wonders for your acne. The best way to treat acne with egg whites is to use a q-tip to dab some of your mixture directly onto your pimples, though you could also use the egg whites to make a mask.
Getting rid of your acne does not have to be complicated or cost a lot of money. Cleaning your face regularly will help you fight against acne. Don’t be too hard with your face because your skin is sensitive! The idea is to clean your face without stripping off the skin!
