Ways to Treat Acne and Blemishes

For those who desire a safe and proven way to get rid of acne and blemishes, try some of these simple and often overlooked clever solutions.

Get some sun protection

Ultraviolet rays from the sun stimulate pigment-producing skin cells which can worsen the appearance of acne scars. So give your skin protection by applying sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, as well as wearing hats, and keeping yourself to the shade as much as possible.

Take exfoliation seriously

As acne scarring usually only affects the top layers of skin, exfoliating can help with the fading process by getting rid of dead skin and revealing the fresh, soft new skin underneath. Do this skincare step regularly to give your skin a consistent glow.

Never pick the acne spots especially with your bare hands

You’ve probably heard this a thousand times over—and it’s for good reason. Picking at your acne and scars interrupts the process by which your skin naturally heals and can worsen their appearance. The bacteria from your hands can also be transferred onto your face, causing it to become inflamed and infected.

Drink lots of water and have a balanced diet

Water will flush toxins from the body and keep skin looking plump and firm, while vitamins such as A, C and E, which you get from a balanced diet, will also help to feed the skin and keep it hydrated.

Go for natural and organic

Sometimes when people can get desperate to get rid of acne scars and blemishes, they will use all manner of abrasive products and methods which can irritate the skin and make the situation worse. The better thing to do is to listen to your skin--if it's reacting badly to a particular product, you should stop using that product immediately. Or better yet, stick to products that contain little to no harmful chemicals and instead have ingredients derived from nature.

If you want to speed up the process of skin healing further, several blemish and acne treatment products can help you. What works best are those variants that contain natural and organic properties, giving your skin the nourishment it needs while getting down to the root cause of your acne and blemishes.
