How To Get Rid Of Zits
This video will explain some myths and rumors about acne and acne treatments as well as tell you what things you should and shouldn't do when dealing with acne. Using improper techniques can actually make acne worse.
Now, I'm going to talk to you about how to deal with zits, or spots, or as we call it, acne vulgaris. So, ladies, zits are caused by the hormonal changes that sometimes occur around your period. Some pill preparations such as the mini pill can make acne worse.
Wearing makeup is sometimes thought to make acne worse, but we found that probably isn't the case and actually, if you use concealing creams that's really not a problem. One of the main contributors to acne is sweating. If you work in hot environments or you wear headbands or headgear that causes sweating around your face, this can make acne worse.
Acne develops around areas where there is tight fitting clothing such as bra straps, tight t-shirts, neck ties, collars, anywhere where sweat can build up and block the pores and make zits appear. Acne is not caused by poor hygiene, and in fact, those people who wash their face excessively can make acne worse by spreading the bacteria around the skin. We also know that diet has little effect on acne, too, and I'm sorry, mums and dads, but chocolate, fizzy drinks and sweets do not make acne worse.
Acne is not contagious. Acne is not a simple skin infection. It's a balance between the normal bugs that live on your skin, the oils that live on the skin and the pores that are within the skin.
Something goes wrong and causes a chrome dome or a zit to develop. We also know that sun beds, sun exposure and getting a sun tan has very little effect on acne. We also know that drinking lots of water doesn't necessarily affect your acne.
It's a good idea to remain hydrated, anyway. There are also lots of rumors that medical treatment of acne doesn't work. Well, I can tell you that's just not true.
Used correctly and used appropriately for a longer time, medical treatment can be incredibly effective against acne. Face washing is important in acne but not excessive. Sometimes, people wash their face 4 or 5 times a day with acne.
This, once again, can make acne worse. Washing your face twice a day with a simple routine should more than suffice. Using simple soap and water with a gentle massaging action is enough to keep some of the symptoms of acne at bay.
Don't use exfoliating agents. Don't use hard cleansing granules. Don't use anything tougher than a soft flannel because you could make your acne worse.
And that's my advice on dealing with zits. .
