How to get rid of acne? Well the answer to that question differs based on skin type,age and a number of other factors. This articles focuses on important tips for getting rid of adult acne- read on for more!



One of the biggest beauty conundrums we face is how to get rid of acne. It’s an expected occurrence for teens- growing pains one might say, and most tend to grow out of by their mid twenties. But then it pops up again in adulthood  yikes! So how do we get rid of adult acne? Here are some solutions we’ve whipped up.

Many people think that you have to scrub your face or exfoliate to get rid of breakouts. Those methods are way too harsh. Your skin in sensitive and have to be treated gently, and the way you wash your face could worsen your breakouts.

Step 1. The proper way to cleanse the face to get rid of acne

1. First, use a makeup cleansing cloth to remove your makeup, then wash your hands with soap and water.   Do not dry them;use the moisture from your hands to wet your face a little.

Add a dime size amount of facial cleanser to your hands then gently rub/massage the cleanser into your face for about 10 seconds. This may seem a strange, but when you have a serious breakout it is better to use your hands to wash your face rather than a cleaning tool like Clarisonic or any other cleansing brush.

Use your hands to lightly splash your face with water then gently pat dry with a clean rag.

Step 2. How to apply product to get rid of acne.

Wash your hands again just to be safe. This time dry them on a clean towel. It’s now time to add your acne treatment. There are many options on the market in the forms of gels,serums ,creams  and spot treatments. Severe acne flareup might require a prescribed treatment from your doctor. Simply follow the directions on the product of your choice.

Step 3. The proper way to apply moisturizer to get rid of acne.

Wash your hands and dry them on a clean towel. Apply your moisturizer the same way that you applied everything else. The only difference is that instead of rubbing in your moisturizer just massage it in lightly with your fingertips-you dont want to aggravate your already sensitive skin.

Step 4. How to get rid of acne

Throughout the day ensure that your hands have as little contact with your face as possible. If by any chance you need to touch your face wash your hands first. If you are going to wear makeup make sure you are using clean brushes. I would advise using your fingers to put on your makeup as well until your face clears just to be safe.

Try not to have your face exposed to the outside air for too long, do your laundry regularly, and wash your face before you go to bed.

This is also a great time to get out that acne diary and start writing away. Figure out where this breakout is coming from and stop it at the source. Remember treating your face is just half the battle. Finding the source of your breakouts will help you avoid future ones.

Stay encouraged ladies and remember to smile because it will get better!
