Effectual ways to get rid of stubborn acne

Acne Problems

Clear and healthy skin is what we all want! But getting that ‘dreamy’ skin is not that easy. All thanks to stubborn acne, most people feel inferior and diffident about their looks!


Our skin is very sensitive and prone to attract dust and bacteria. If lot of dead skin cells collect onto the surface of skin or when oil secretion called as sebum blocks the passage, it ultimately leads to the common problem of acne. Anyone can get acne even babies too. At times these acnes become so severe that they don’t respond to various treatments like application of creams, lotions, ointments and even medications. Here, we would discuss about 15 efficient ways to get rid of this hitch.

Here are a few tips that can help you to prevent acne

  • The first and foremost rule is to stop touching your face. Sounds easy but it actually is quite difficult as people don’t have any idea how many times they touch their face by itching, wiping lips or scratching the ears.
  • Our hands attract the maximum amount of germs, bacteria and dirt, as the world around us is quite germ-infested. Try washing your hand before you touch your face.
  • Start washing your face twice a day to get rid of the dirt and bacteria. Just go easy on the washing; don’t go overboard as excessive washing can lead to some other skin problems.
  • Try working out a bit just to sweat it out. Sweating helps to clear your pores and get rid of the dead cells.
  • Wearing tight clothes that rub against your skin is not good for your skin so, try to loosen up a bit.
  • After sweating a lot the whole body is covered with salt and dead cells, so try going for an immediate shower or it can lead to blockages.
  • For acne treatment, try some Benzoyl Peroxides, as it’s a common product used in lotion and creams. It kills bacteria that causes acne and is very easily available on every counter. It may take three weeks for this medicine to work, so be patient.
  • Salicylic acid is another product, which doesn’t exactly work on bacteria but do affects the sebum production.
  • Look at your make up as sometimes some cosmetic products can cause some serious damage to your skin, so try and go for ‘oil-free’ or “noncomedogenic” products.
  • If all the above don’t work, then try antibiotics. Tetracycline is commonly used for acne problems as it takes away the bacteria’s ability to make protein.
  • Worrying too much about how to deal with acne can only give you more acne. Don’t stress about the problem that will certainly give you a bad, dull and acne prone skin. Drink water and maintain hygiene.
  • Isotretinoin is a doctor prescribed drug that is mainly used for the treatment of severe acne. Sometime the magical effect of this drug can help you get rid of this problem forever and many times, it slows down the occurrence. But it takes a few months to achieve the desired results.
  • Microdermabrasion is also a medical procedure to take care of your acne. Doctors do this process where a wand like instrument is hit on your face with aluminum oxide. It’s a complete painless process with good results.
  • If still there are no results, then nothing can beat the procedure of laser. Laser completely destroys the gland producing sebum.

So, say goodbye to your acne prone skin and welcome the smooth acne free skin by following the above-mentioned steps as acnes are not worth to worry about.
