Having acne, especially lots of it, is never good at all.
Breakouts are bad enough as it is already, but anyone who suffers from post-pimple hyperpigmentation knows that dealing with the aftermath is even worse.
While some people can be lucky as spots will clear up straight away right after, others are not. For the unlucky ones, acne lingers in the form of red or brown marks that can last for weeks (even months), and can lead to long-term white and pitted scars if not treated properly.
If you’re under the unlucky category, you shouldn’t be discouraged. There are ways to handle your breakouts properly. A proper skincare routine, along with professional help can get the job done for you.
Here are some key tips that can help you prevent and treat acne:
Don’t pick on those spots – Picking causes inflammation which can lead to longer-term scarring.
Wear SPF properly – Sun exposure can make redness worse, so use a dedicated sunscreen on your face.
Take necessary supplements – Zinc is renowned for its ability to heal skin from the inside so pop a pill with your morning drink.
Assess your diet the right way – To prevent spots from marking in the first place, avoid food and drink high in inflammatory ingredients like caffeine and sugar.
Moisturize – Skin is only healthy and able to heal and function at its best when it’s well-hydrated.
Seek professional help – You also need a helping hand from an expert dermatologist to have your acne treated or prevented in the first place.
