What do you do if you have breakouts on your face?
This question has likely crossed your mind, whether it's been the result of stress or an unhealthy diet. Acne is common in teens and children, but sometimes adults like you and me may experience an outbreak for no reason. People with acne often wonder whether they should get medical help — but what should you do if home remedies and topical treatments don't work for them?
Clear skin can be yours with one simple change in your routine. Learn more by checking out this guide.
Try breaking out the onion
The best remedy is to use a natural remedy. The most effective natural remedy for acne is onion, which is an all-natural treatment that does not have any side effects. Onion is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce swelling and redness. If you have severe acne, you should take a few slices of raw onion each day until your breakouts clear up!
Stick to gentle products
It's a good idea to stick to gentle products, especially if you're prone to getting breakouts. A lot of harsh cleansers and face washes can make your skin red and irritated. If you have sensitive skin, check out our list of the best gentle cleansers for acne-prone skin.
Keep the skin hydrated
One of the first things dermatologists recommend when treating acne is to hydrate your skin with water-based moisturizers, like our Lettuce-face it Hydration Mist, twice daily. This will help prevent dryness and keep your skin from becoming too tight after cleansing. It's also important to avoid using anything with alcohol in it because it dries out your skin even more than regular cleansers do.
Skincare begins on the inside and extends to the outside, which is why we have complete faith in the efficacy of Feeding Your Skin The Truth [FYSTT].
Eating a variety of foods that are rich in all the nutrients required for healthy skin is the best way to nourish your skin. To achieve this, try increasing the amount of fruits, whole grains, such as brown rice or quinoa, vegetables (like carrots), and strawberries in your daily diet.
Constant workout and staying hydrated
Regular exercise benefits your skin as well as the rest of your body. Avoid using or wearing clothing or exercise equipment that may irritate your skin while exercising. Just after working out, take a shower or bath.
Your body may tell your skin's oil glands to produce more oil if you're dehydrated. Additionally, dehydration makes your skin appear dull and encourages inflammation and redness. If you exercise, are pregnant or nursing, or spend time in a hot, humid environment, you should drink more.
Although stress doesn't cause pimples, it can exacerbate them. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, studies have shown that stress causes your body to produce more hormones that stimulate the production of oil, which worsens breakouts.
You have the following choices to reduce your stress:
The next time you have a breakout, consider some of these remedies for your face. While none of them work overnight, they will help with clearing skin and looking your best. To prevent future breakouts, you'll want to treat the skin as soon as you detect a breakout. Treat pimples early, and you won't have as much scarring or skin discoloring when it's over. And just remember: if you don't see results from the first thing that you use, don't give up! Keep experimenting until you find the right formula for your unique skin type.
