How To Deal With Zits On The Face
, I want how to deal with zits on the face
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain how severe the acne on your face is?
Acne can form due to a mixture of sebum (natural oil of the face) with dead skin cells and dirt that clog the pores of the face. Blockage in these pores can cause bacterial development and inflammation in the area that is blocked so that eventually pimples appear swollen, reddened, and painful.
You might be able to deal with mild to moderate acne, but if you have moderate to severe acne, you have cystic or nodular type acne (very large, hard, painful, pus-filled zits), especially if in large quantities, then the treatment of acne can not be done alone. You should have yourself checked by a dermatologist if you have moderate-severe acne.
The following are some things you can do:
Never squeeze or poke your pimples
Try washing your face 2 times a day, morning and night. Use gentle soap for your face, do not use antiseptic soap and do not use soap containing scrubs every day. Choose facial soap that suits your skin type (soap for oily skin if your skin is oily)
You may use soap containing scrubs only 2-3 times a week
Just rub your face gently (don't rub it roughly) as well as when you dry your face with a towel
You can try to use facial care products that contain AHA (glycolic and lacticacids) or even BHA (salicylic acid) to help dead skin cells on the face more quickly and accelerate the replacement of facial skin cells
You can try using facial care products that contain benzoyl peroxide (not mixed with antibiotics) to help deal with inflamed zits (make sure you read the rules for using the medicine properly before using it)
Make sure you always use a facial moisturizer after you wash your face or after doing facial treatments with other products (toner, serum, cream, etc.). Choose a non-comedogenic moisturizer that suits your facial skin type. Oily skin also still needs treatment with facial moisturizers
Make sure you always use sunscreen before you leave the house in the morning and afternoon, reapplication if you do a lot of activities outside the home
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
