Treating acne is an important aspect of keeping your skin healthy. Aside from the cosmetic concerns we all have about zits, they can lead to deeper problems, like infection, if they aren’t taken care of properly. Next time you have a blemish, keep these three tips in mind.
- Don’t touch! Popping pimples can cause everything from mild irritation to infection — none of which will help your complexion.
- Don’t overdo it with topical creams, cleansers or makeup. Your first instinct when you notice a zit is probably to do everything you can to make it disappear. Unfortunately, this can actually cause more irritation, leading to swelling and redness. Use topical creams, like spot treatments, as directed and don’t over wash your face. Additionally, it can be tempting to cake on the concealer, but don’t apply too much. This can further irritate the skin and clog the pores.
- Don’t use harsh products. For the occasional blemish, harsh products can do more harm than good. Instead of using chemical-laden creams, turn to plant-based products that naturally heal your skin.
We recommend our Natural Beauty Vitamin Infused Facial Serum that is high in essential Omega fatty acids, protein and iron. This serum will improve redness, acne, itchiness, dry patches, blotchy skin, and inflammation.
