Several times you have been told, not to pinch/scratch your pimples, but sometimes it is hard to resist either because you don’t just like the look of them on your face or because you believe that it will make them heal faster. Everyone who has pimples just wants one thing, for them to go away and leave a fresh, smooth skin. But you have to understand that when you are trying to get rid of pimples you must follow practices which will not only make pimples go away but stay away.
I remember how the big bumps killed my confidence and made me think less of myself. I could imagine looking into someone’s eyes and seeing my face filled with them.
What I am sharing here is what I experienced when trying to get rid of pimples and how everything changed when I started doing the right thing and till today, I don’t worry about pimples.
So here are 6 tips that will make your pimples clear very fast
Bathing is one of the most important, you have to be careful the way you bathe your face.
Start bathing twice or thrice a day. When bathing in the morning, be careful the way you rub the sponge on your face. Do it carefully, but remember to scrub. When bathing at night, use only soap instead, don’t ever use a sponge. Try bathing one hour before bedtime and always sleep before 12 am.
Foods like Margarine (butter), groundnut, chips and other foods can make increase your chances of getting pimples. The main reason is that these foods contain a certain kind of acid which increases the chances of an inflammation happening on your skin.
Better stay away from these foods or consume more foods containing omega-3 fatty acids like fish to balance your consumption of Butter, groundnut etc which contain omega-6 fatty acids.
Never use your hands to touch your face, and never scratch the pimples, never burst them with your fingers or pinch them. When the pimples are ripe and ready for bursting, use the sharp end of a broomstick or needle to poke at it and gently press the pus away, don’t press too hard or it will turn into a scar.
- SUN, STRESS, AND SPERM
Stay away from the sun and try to reduce stress. I noticed that these two things cause an outbreak of pimples on my face and most especially the sun.
Try not to have sex or any activity that will make you release sperm, it might sound weird, but the release of sperm can lead to more pimples especially in teenagers.
Drink enough water to leave your skin fresh and radiant, also water helps cool down your body. Drink 8 – 10 glasses of water every day.
Watch your cream, in my case a cream lead to my pimples, and I stopped using it. But everything changed when I went back to using that same cream. It might be different for you, so I advise you check the cream you are using at the moment and look for the one which is best for your skin. I will also advise you go for a cream which is hydroquinone free.
