How to fight pimples and acne

Pimples, and acne in general, are a real concern for both men and women. It's very simple, as soon as a pimple appears on the face, our first step is to try to remove it by piercing it. The result is sometimes worse and much more visible on the face than if the pimple had been left alone on the face. And pimples are much more prevalent in people with oily or combination skin: the excess sebum will clog the pores of the skin and thus prevent the skin from breathing.

Concretely, to fight against pimples and acne, it will be necessary to put in place actions to regulate excess sebum, purify the skin by cleaning it of all dead cells, and take good care of it, do not attack him.

  • Wash your face with a neutral pH soap. If you don't have soap, you can also use micellar water morning and evening which will allow you to cleanse your skin thoroughly, as if you were doing a little daily scrub.

  • Preferably use unscented soaps.

  • Exfoliate your face at least once a week. This will remove any dead skin cells.

  • If you use makeup for men, you will have to remove makeup from your skin before going to bed. Because it is during the night that the production of sebum is the most important, it is therefore necessary to go to bed with perfectly clean skin.

  • you will also have to reduce your alcohol consumption if this is the case.

In any case, if you have pimples on your skin, it is necessary to leave them alone. Above all, do not touch them, nor pierce or scratch them.
