Some of us were lucky enough to escape this nightmare, but most of the teenagers had to deal with it for several years. From my personal experience, it’s unbelievably hard to treat it. When I was younger, I’d been depressed because of it. The kids weren’t rude, no. But every time I looked in the mirror, I saw the red damaged skin and wanted to cry. Through the years I got used to it, but it still bothers me a lot. I tried literally everything. And I’m sure you did too. So here are some basic advice and methods, how to deal with it.
Patience, patience, and again, patience
While trying to heal your skin and get rid of it, it’s very important to stay patient. A lot of people, including me, want to see the results immediately and give up before it starts working. It takes months sometimes to clean up your acne completely. Visit your doctor often and ask for other advice, until the skin is healed.
Some routines you can do to help the process of healing
Do not forget to observe hygiene! It’s almost the most important part of getting rid of your skin problems. Wash your face at least twice a day, or after you’ve done some physical activity. Try to avoid touching and scrubbing, it can only worsen the skin. I’m terrible at this, every time I see a new pimple I have to pop it. I know it’s wrong but in a weird way, it’s kind of satisfying. And lastly, don’t use any skincare products that cause acne. Try as many as you want, but you should find yourself a good helping product.
The most common medications
It depends on how bad your acne is. Sometimes the different kinds of creams, gels, and lotions are enough. But sometimes it’s a necessity to use antibiotics and drugs. It’s important to use them wisely and read something about how to use them. They can increase your skin’s sun sensitivity, cause redness, or dry the skin. You have to combine it with using a lotion.
