I know that if you suffer with acne you wish you could just say goodbye to acne. Unfortunately, it is not that easy. Some people get the occasional blemish and just about go crazy because of it, they have no idea what it is like for people who have large outbreaks nearly all of the time. There is nothing that seems to make a person feel worse than having a severe occurrence of blemishes. You try everything on the market. There are creams, and soaps that all say they will clear up your acne, but then you suffer with dry or irritated skin and become discouraged all ever again. I am going to offer some suggestions that may help and many people they do work.
One thing that you need to know is that the type of soap you use does matter. Some soap just dry your skin and some make it look almost waxy in appearance. The kind of soap that works best will be glycerin based. Glycerin does not leave your skin feeling dry or waxy. An example of this kind of soap is Neutrogena. You can also try sorbitol face washes for the same effect but they also help the pH balance of the skin.
Another way to help say goodbye to acne is to use an exfoliate on your skin. Our skin usually does this naturally but sometimes in oily skin it does not happen enough. There are alpha and beta hydroxyl acid bases products that work the best and are very mild. Also, these products work slowly to help you skin exfoliate. Another thing you might consider is not using moisturizer very often and only on the part of you skin that is dry.
Your next tip in saying goodbye to acne is to cut back on the sugar. I know you do not want to hear about this one but it does make a difference. To much sugar has many negative effects and your skin is one of them. Cutting back on soda would be a good place to start and than cut back a little at a time until you are seeing the results of cutting back on your sugar intake.
Another diet related tip to help you say goodbye to your acne is to drink plenty of water and take vitamin C. Water is good for us and helps flush our system of things that are not good for us. It is also good for our skin, as well. Taking vitamin C helps our immune system and helps fight the bacteria that cause the acne.
One last way to help you say goodbye to acne is to use a good sun block. We need to protect our skin from sun damage and side effects that it causes. Too much exposure to the sun causes more breakouts not less. When you have oily or combination skin you should make sure that you find an oil free sun block.
I hope these tips will help you say goodbye to your acne and then you can relax and feel better about yourself. That is something we all deserve and can all have if we put these few simple suggestions into place.
