There are many non-surgical or and non-hormonal treatments to change the way acne affects our lives. If acne is a persistent problem for you, or if has recently emerged, you are probably familiar with the many treatments offered by Britannia Dermedics, including Pearl Laser Resurfacing, Laser Genesis, and Chemical Peels. Here are a few tips on how to deal with the emergence of a new pimple between treatments, or when to consider a treatment instead of a new face cleanser.
Acne scarring is caused by improper treatment of breakouts. While we don’t choose how our hormones affect our skin, we are in control of the way our skin is treated. Only some pimples are okay to be popped, which are pus-filled and have the familiar white head.
Run a sterile needle through the very top to release what is inside.
Never use your fingers to pop a pimple. They are covered in bacteria that will aggravate your skin even further and hinder the healing process. Furthermore, the pressure is aggravating and damaging to your skin!
Be Good to Your Skin
If these pimples are a recurring problem, consider Laser Genesis, Pearl Laser Resurfacing, or Chemical Peels–all promote new, healthier skin to form. On a day to day basis, consider these ways to deal with pimples you shouldn’t pop:
Look for professional grade cleanser and face lotion that is catered to your skin’s needs.
Don’t over-cleanse. It can’t be said enough–cleaning reaches a point of diminishing returns and should be reviving, not drying to your skin.
Change your diet–if you notice one food is always around when you break out, try to cut it out and see how your skin is affected.
Sleep on clean sheets and pat-dry your face with a clean towel to reduce bacteria, irritation, and inflammation. Cleanliness is key to speeding up the healing process, as well as helping to prevent irritation from occurring in the first place.
