Facial Treatment Mistakes that Makes Acne Breakouts Worse In an effort to clear away acne from your face, you may try out so many facial treatments tactics some of which will lead to the breakout of more pimples. Some of these are:
Spot treatment every time you notice a pimple breakout: Though spot treatment may get rid of the current pimple breakout, it is not a permanent cure as more breakouts will result from a clogged oil gland.
Staying away from acne products until a breakout occurs: If your skin is prone to pimples breakout, do not wait until they resurface to use acne products. Make it a daily habit to use products containing salicylic acid and you will enjoy a breakout-free skin.
Trying to scrub the breakouts away: You may think that trying to scrub off the top layer of the skin in an effort to remove the pimples will do the trick. This will not be the case as more breakouts will appear as a result of the irritation.
An acne prone skin will require a gentle cleanser for best results.
Use products that have a high concentration of benzoyl peroxide: This is a product that effectively works on acne and the bacteria that causes inflammation of the skin. After only a few days of using a product containing benzoyl peroxide, the breakouts will be no more and the skin surrounding the areas with acne breakouts will not be damaged.
Picking: Picking at the skin that has breakouts will cause bacterial infections and scarring of the skin as well. If you must pick at the skin, use a clean tool or get professional help. You can visit a spa for a facial treatment where the aesthetician will help in clearing away the breakouts.
