Abracadabra and there you go. Don’t you wish is was just that simple. If I could just wave a wand and make you acne free, I would. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Getting rid of acne involves a lot of time and trial and error, however, there are some changes that you can make that will help you be successful. Acne can effect you whether you are young or old, guy or girl. It would be nice if it was just one of those teenage things that we could just suffer through and be done with it. As some of you know, it doesn’t always work like that. Adults can have just as a hard of a time getting rid of acne as the kids do. So lets explore some ways to make it easier to deal with and make it go away faster.

One of the easiest ways is in the way you wash your face. When you begin your skin care regime in the morning, you should let the warm water gently flow over your face. Not hot, and not cold, but you should use warm water. When you wash your face use light gentle movements with your fingertips and make it quick. You want to have your hands on your face just long enough to clean it. Whatever you do try not to scrub the skin. It is already irritated enough without any help from you. Rinse your face using the water and try to keep your hands off of your face as much as possible. Use a clean towel and gently pat your face to remove any excess water. Allow your skin to dry completely before applying any other products at this point. Then use your skin care regime as desired as long as it contains at least 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide. This is what you need to look for in a product to be successful. This should be strong enough to treat acne in most people.

As you apply the Benzoyl Peroxide to your face take your time and give the medicine at least 3 to 5 minutes of absorbing in to your skin in order for it to work properly. Use a generous amount. This is necessary to be successful. Glide it gentle over your skin and do not rub it in. After you have applied it, you should allow it to dry completely. When you are finished, moisturize your face. Contrary to popular belief, this is a necessary process that helps prevent the skin from becoming dry and flaking.

While you are on your regime make sure that you take a complete vitamin. People with acne need vitamin A, B, D, and E. This should become part of your acne routine. Get out in the sun at least 10 to 20 minutes a day for a great dose of vitamin D. Drink plenty of water to keep the body flushed of toxins. This is a very important step in skincare for everyone. Avoid foods that are high in fats and eat plenty of starches. Make sure that you eat plenty of vegetables. If you have access to a sauna then use it once a week. If not, use a towel and steam your face, but be careful not to burn yourself. This will help to open the pores and let them breathe. Most importantly, keep your hands off of your face. Touching your face constantly just adds more bacteria to the skin.

If you have severe cystic acne that you cannot get under control, I do know that Accutane is a very successful last resort. If it has come to this point ask your doctor about this treatment before scarring has occurred. This product does have some unusual side effects, so this is not a step to be taken lightly. I have seen lasting results of those that have took a 6 to 9 month regiment of it, and it cured their acne for good. Your doctor will know the correct treatment for your situation if you cannot get it under control yourself. Good luck, and hopefully your one of the few that will grow out of this.
