Each of us are individuals in every way. We look different, sound different, think differently, dress differently, and our bodies function differently, even though their basic function is the same. Because each of us is so different, it is no wonder that acne skin care products that work for one person simply will not work for another person. The trick is to find an acne skin care product that works for you.
The important thing to realize is that acne does not begin on the surface of the skin. Acne begins inside the body, and is caused by bacteria. Therefore, acne must be treated on the inside to kill the bacteria, and on the outside to heal acne that has already erupted. Acne must be treated orally and topically, and many acne skin care products now offer both internal and external treatments.
Don’t expect acne skin care products to work alone, or to work overnight. You must take certain steps to help the acne skin care product help you. Here are some tips to help your acne skin care product of choice work better:
1. Keep you face clean. Wash it at least twice a day.
2. Keep your hair off your face. Hair has oils that aggravate acne.
3. Drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin hydrated, and to detoxify the body.
4. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
5. Get plenty of sleep. Our bodies function better when they are well rested.
6. Avoid stress, as stress can cause acne breakouts.
7. Wash your face well after activities that cause you to sweat. Don’t just wipe the sweat away.
8. Keep your hands off your face. Your hands also contain oils that can aggravate acne.
9. Don’t pop the acne pimples. This can cause the bacteria to spread to other areas of the skin, and in many cases will result in scarring.
10. Read and follow the direction for your acne skin care product carefully. Often, products fail to work because they are not used properly.
Acne skin care products can and do work, if you give them time, and you don’t do things that prevent them from working. Use the tips above to help your acne skin care product do it’s very best for you.
