Tips To Get Rid Of Acne

This may come as a surprise... but acne can easily be kept under control in most cases with just a few simple changes to your daily routine.

I suffered with acne as a teenager. If I had known back then what I am about to share with you, I would never have had to go through the trauma and embarrassment which tends to go hand in hand with acne.

The first and most important step of keeping acne away, is to keep your face clean.

Clean your face with plenty of water several times a day (atleast twice a day). Use a good cleanser that is suited to your skin type, but don't use a product that is too harsh as to damage your skin. Your sought after outcome is for clean, clear and blemish-free skin, not damaged acne-free skin.

Protect your skin with a good moisturizer.

If you don't protect your skin, and you allow it to become too dry, your oil glands with start to overwork trying to compensate. This will ofcourse have a negative effect and will pave the way for acne to appear.

Drink plenty of water. Ofcourse filtered or bottled water is always better than tap water.

You should drink even more water after eating foods such as "Junk" type foods. This extra water will rid your body faster of the ammunition that would normally start off an acne rampage.

Try to eat a healthy diet. The words "we are what we eat" are words you should definitely keep in mind when battling acne.

Lots of fresh vegetables and fruit are wonderful for keeping your body healthy and for keeping acne away!

Vitamins can on occasion help with your battle also!

Sometimes, in severe cases of acne, there is a lacking of vitamins involved. Consulting your doctor and health food expert about this will soon put you on the right path to healthier skin. Guidance is needed for some vitamins as to the safe dosage you need, so aways check before you start on a new course of vitamins.

Washing your hair regularly also plays a large part in keeping acne away.

Just like with cleaning your face, you should also care for your hair with regular washing and the correct conditioning and care. You also have oil glands in your scalp, and you don't want these to become too overactive either.

Don't soak up too much sun.

Apart from the obvious risks of skin cancer, too much sun will dry your skin out. This will cause your skin to age faster, and will damage your skin. Remember what you are trying to acheive here.....clear blemish-free skin, not wrinkly skin!!
