The Right Guide to Caring for Acne Pimples


Having easy facial skin with acne does need to be patient. Because, just a little wrong in treating acne can immediately appear on the face. For those of you who have this problem, I will review how to treat the skin for acne prone faces.

Things that need to be done to treat facial acne



Do you already know what causes acne on the face? If you do not already have to find out first by consulting a specialist skin and genitalia (Sp.KK). Usually the cause can be from outside (external) and also inside (internal).

Family history, hormonal changes, and certain diseases are internal factors that usually cause acne. While facial hygiene, sleep habits, diet, and make up use are the external factors that most often cause acne.

If you have acne prone skin, let's follow the guidelines below to treat it.

Maintain cleanliness of facial skin

In general, facial acne usually tends to be oily. Therefore, you are advised to routinely wash your face with BHA-based facial cleansers containing salicylic acid 2 to 3 times a day. Choose products with a BHA content of no more than 2 percent.

However, if you have dry skin, use a PHA cleanser. PHA is an AHA derivative that tends to be mild and not irritating like AHA and BHA.

This product is useful for peeling off dead skin cells and flattening skin tone. Use products that have a PHA content of 4 percent. Don't forget, use cleansing milk first if you use makeup that is quite heavy.

Use toner after washing your face

Toner serves to treat and clean up the remnants of dirt that is still stuck to the face after washing your face. For those of you who have oily facial skin, use AHA toner after washing your face. While for those of you who are dry or sensitive skin toner made from PHA are usually more suitable.


Use gel-based products

For those of you who have oily skin, you should use light gel or lotion textured products. The goal, so as not to stimulate the oil glands to be more active. To choose the right product is indeed easy. However, rather than you try the product it is better to consult a doctor Sp.KK. Because the skin that tends to be prone to acne usually will immediately issue a negative reaction when trying out various new products.

Don't stay up late

Staying up late and lacking sleep can stimulate the production of the hormone cortisol. This hormone is known as a stress hormone that can aggravate acne and stimulate the formation of new zits. For this reason, if you don't want pimples to appear easily on your face, try to sleep enough for about 7 hours.

Avoid foods with a high glycemic index

The glycemic index is a value that describes how fast food can affect blood sugar levels. The greater the glycemic index value, the faster the increase in blood sugar levels after eating.

Well, foods with a high glycemic index (above 70) such as white rice, instant noodles, and sweet foods can stimulate inflammation in the skin. In addition, this food group can also enlarge the oil glands and make them more active so that the risk of acne will increase

What to do when acne is inflamed?


When acne is inflamed don't panic or stress first. Instead, use special acne products such as BHA, benzoyl peroxide, or azelaic acid. These various ingredients help relieve inflammation and treat acne.

But remember, don't try to easily switch products every day. Because the skin can be even more inflamed and acne gets worse. If after using various acne medications you will not improve, consult your doctor Sp. KK so that it can be handled appropriately and not get worse.

Be careful when choosing products for your face


If you have easy facial acne, you should avoid ingredients that easily irritate the skin. Not only that, you are also not recommended to use makeup products that are comedogenic or trigger blackheads.

You also need to avoid sunscreen products that contain avobenzone, PABA, dioxybenzone, or homosolate. If you find that the sunscreen that you have contains various ingredients, avoid using it for more than 3 hours. Because the various ingredients are very easy to clog the pores and trigger acne.

Can I try natural treatments?


Actually, natural ingredients such as apple vinegar, honey, tea tree oil, lemon juice, and others are not scientifically proven to cure acne. In fact, instead of curing various ingredients it can actually aggravate acne because of its tendency to irritate the skin.

However, you can still use these natural ingredients. Just don't use it when there are pimples on your face, especially when you're inflamed. If the pimples have appeared, you should use ingredients that are proven to be medically effective. Consult your problem to the nearest SPKK to get the right advice and treatment.
