How To Deal With Pimple And Acne Problems – A question every girl must have bothered about !
Waking up to a beautiful morning with glowing skin is a dream of every other girl.
What is the first thing you do after you wake up? Do you see yourself in the mirror to check out any changes that might have occurred to your face overnight? Does seeing your glowing skin make you ecstatic and give a resplendent start off to your day? I strongly believe that most of us are into this habit of seeing our image in the mirror. Why not! There is nothing wrong in loving yourself, taking good care of your skin and watching out for any premonitions so as to take preventive measures before the problem arises.
The scariest illusion is to find a pimple or painful acne breakout on the middle of your apple of cheek. I cannot even stand the thought of it as I have been through this painful phase once. I used to get up seeing a new acne breakout on my face and cursing them. If you have been through these pimple and acne problems you must be knowing that painful acne takes a lot longer to completely fade away – at least a month or so. Plus, till the time these guests are there they will keep up their glowing red appearance so that nobody could miss noticing them. Not only this, they pain incessantly and leave stubborn marks behind.
This problem can be so severe that it can let you skip some of the important rituals of life’s biggest days. Two and a half years ago, when I was so close to my wedding day I was attacked by pimple and acne. I got too scared with this sudden outbreak that I did not take any pre-bridal facials or massage or bleach. Can you imagine a bride-to-be not going for facial? Unfortunately, I did and the reason for not going for these facial treatments was not to aggravate the problem. My engagement was 2 days prior to the wedding, and thankfully I did not face major (painful) acne that day. But during the next two days, the only thing I worried about was pimples, and to my bad luck right on the D day a couple of pimples emerged around my chin area from nowhere. So devastated I was that I forgot take my jewelry to the parlor, where I had to get ready, but mercifully my MUA managed to skillfully cover all the concerned spots and gave me a clear skin.
To this day when I remember the breakout of painful acne it gives me a pain in the head. Thankfully that horrified phase is over!!
However, I still keep getting short visits by these unwelcome guests though I do not mind them much as I know how to shoo them away now
How to deal with pimple and acne
1) Always keep your surroundings clean.
2) Change pillow cases every alternate day.
3) Frequently Wash your hands as they are the most common carriers of bacteria.
4) Avoid touching your face with dirty hands.
5) If you have acne prone skin, use a good face wash that either contains salicylic acid or at least claims to treat acne.
6) Always use one new face product at a time. If you are using multiple new face products at a time and your skin starts breaking out you will never be able to figure out what product is causing this and should be annulled.
7) What goes inside the body is equally important for pimple-free skin. You need to observe what suits your skin and what does not. For instance, my skin is sensitive to food that generates heat inside the body. Every time I excessively savor coffee, peanuts, papaya my skin breaks out. So I will keep a check on such intakes so as not to confront these unwelcomed guests.
8) Be on the look out of your skin needs and keep it hydrated by drinking lots of water.
9) Sweat it out- exercising is an important medium to unclog pores and keep pimples at bay.
10) More importantly, you need to tweak your lifestyle in order to get healthy skin free from pimples and acne: be an early riser, devour fruits and veggies, cut down your junk food intake and do all other good things that are usually recommended by parents
Onset of even a single pimple can make a girl skip appearing in public so it is better either to start taking caution or to keep a carefree attitude. Being a girl, I think the latter is applicable to boys only. 😉
