Best Ways To Get Rid Of Acne - An Easy Yet Effective Daily Strategy

There are many ways to get rid of acne and many people believe that they have the best idea to get rid of it. People always have their own methods of dealing with acne. So what are the best ways to get rid of acne? In this article I am going to explain some of the best ways to get rid of acne. So let's get started.

The moment that you wake up and noticed than you have pimples on your face, the first thing you need to do, if you notice that you have oily skin, is to wipe your face off with a dry towel. After you have done that, you should gently cleanse your skin with a salicylic acid. After applying this, you must be very careful to not touch your face with your hands or fingers. The reason is because the oils from your fingers will get into your pores and clog them. You have to make a mental note and physically think to not touch your face at all during the day.

The meals that you should eat during the day should not contain any grease or excessive amounts of sugar at all. The best thing to do is to drink water throughout the day and nothing else other than water to drink. When deciding on eating lunch and dinner when your focused in on the best way to rid of acne is to eat salad and chicken/fish. With the chicken do not eat the deep fried kind; eat the grilled chicken. Remember, to keep track of your water intake. Drink at least eight, 8 ounce glasses of water; which comes out to 64 ounces. It wouldn't hurt to go over a little bit; but do not overdo it.

As you progress through the day and you feel your face becoming oily, remember to wipe it off gently with the towel. If your face feels too dry then apply a moisturizer. But this should keep your face from being too dry or oily.

At the beginning of the day as well, remember to take your vitamins. The vitamins that you should be taking are vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, and Zinc. Another supplement and I recommend taking is St. John's Wort regularly. The reason is because it helps calm your nerves. Stress is one of the main reasons that cause breakouts. It is a vicious cycle when you see yourself break out then you become stressed and when your stressed, you break out more.

When you come back home for the evening, remember to take a shower, wash your face and to exfoliate gently. While in the shower remember to wash your hair because this gets the grease out that may be causing the breakouts along the top of your forehead. Once you are out of the shower then dry off your acne prone areas gently. Next is to apply a little more Salicylic acid to the area's and let dry. Once the Salicylic acid dries then place a dab of Benzoyl Peroxide with a strength of 5% on your worst pimples. If you have dry skin then I recommend putting on a night cream moisturizer.
