The importance of having a spotless and glowing face devoid of pimples can never be overemphasized because the skin and specifically our face, can be a mirror through which others view our health, personal hygiene etc, and having those little bumps on our faces and elsewhere on our body lead to a low self esteem and feelings of embarrassment when in public.
Because of the damaging effect of acne on the psych of those that are battling it, we decided to bring to your notice, ways through which you can get rid of those unwelcome tenants messing up your face. However, before we get to know how to remove pimples, it is important that we also know what causes pimples or its agents.
The following are the major causes of acne
- Oily skin
- Poor Diet
- Birth control pills and other such pills
- Blocked or clogged skin pores.
WAYS THROUGH WHICH YOU CAN EFFECTIVELY COMBAT ACNE
- EAT HEALTHY FOODS
Good nutrition is an antidote to pimples. People that are prone to pimple should avoid certain foods that can lead to an increase in blood sugar levels and ultimately increased insulin. So, if you can, then why not become a vegetarian or if going totally green is impossible, you can then emphasize on foods that are high on green vegetables, fruits and lean protein like fishes that are rich in omega-3 while we do away with those that are high on cholesterol.
- STAY AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT
You should avoid staying outdoors when the sun is out because the sun’s ultra violet rays can react with our skin and equally trigger the production of sweat and oils that will lead to the clogging of our skin pores, but when staying outdoors under the sun can’t be totally avoided, it becomes vital to use sunscreen to minimize its damaging effects.
- ALWAYS KEEP YOUR FACE MOISTURIZED
There is this erroneous assumption that keeping our face moisturized can worsen the outbreak of pimples, now, this is a fallacy, because ensuring that our face is well hydrated is a sure way of keeping pimples, blackheads and whites at bay. This applies to both dry and oily skin. Allowing your skin to be dehydrated can lead to the accumulation of tiny flakes of dried skin which in turn clogs our skin pores thereby resulting in the outbreak of pimples.
OTHER CAUSES OF PIMPLE INCLUDE:
- Picking or manipulating the pimples
- Making use of improper chemicals as cleansing chemical
- Not hydrating your face well enough
- Excessive washing of face etc...
