Let’s Get Rid of Acne This Monsoon

Zarina was glad the summers were done as her oily skin would experience severe acne outbreaks. However, it was already one month into the monsoon and her pimples didn’t seem to be going anywhere. Zarina wondered if she was making some skin care mistakes that was worsening her acne problems.

Like Zarina, many of us experience an acne outbreak in the monsoons too. While the air is cooler, the humidity increases and this provides the perfect breeding ground for many kinds of skin bacteria. Acne can bother you on your face or even on your body. The good news is that it’s now easier than ever to get rid of pimples. All you need to do is follow these simple tips daily for flawless, glowing skin.

  1. Keep your hands off

As tempted as you may feel to break that ugly pimple on your face, try not to. Breaking a pimple or trying to squeeze out blackheads will leave you with scars and even more pimples. Keep your skin clean and let that zit dry out naturally.

  1. Use an astringent

Always use an astringent, after a facewash, to minimize your pores. If you don’t have a toner or an astringent at hand, washing your face with ice cold water or running an ice cube over your skin will do the trick.

  1. Minimise your facials

A facial may be a great way to relax however if you have an acne-prone skin, you need to avoid frequent massages. Moreover, many beauticians don’t know the right way to remove blackheads and this can damage your delicate pores. Don’t do a facial more than once a month.

  1. Don’t use old razors

Old and blunt razors are partly to blame for body acne. The blades carry much and grime that they deposit on your skin. This leads to acne and even folliculitis. Change your razor blade often or simply opt for waxing to remove hair.

  1. Home remedies are great

The best remedies for minor skin outbreaks can be found on your kitchen shelf. Tea tree oil, Fuller’s earth, lemon juice, aloe vera, and tomato juice have been used since ancient times to control acne. The internet has many recipes for face packs. Check and find the one best suited for you.

  1. Cleanse before bedtime

The best time to use a facewash is at night and not in the morning. Before bed, you need to wash off the grime and dirt gathered up in your pores through the day. On the other hand, when you wake up, you skin is lubricated with natural moisture which you shouldn’t wash off.

  1. Wash your bedlinen well

Research shows that pillow covers and bedsheets are often the least washed items in our laundry. Germs can stick to your pillows, incubate, and cause acne breakouts. Make sure you wash your linen at least once a week and dry it in sunlight.

  1. Switch to cotton clothing

The best way to control body acne is by wearing loose and comfortable cotton clothing. Stay away from tight belts, synthetic fabrics, and any accessories that will itch your skin and block your pores.

  1. Maintain a healthy diet

A healthy diet is the cornerstone of good health. This monsoon, stick to homemade food and skip your favourite bhajiya, chaat, samosa, and frankie stalls. Drink lots of water and avoid fruit juices prepared at roadside stalls.

  1. Consult a specialist

If you have tried almost everything and your acne seems to worsen instead of healing, it might be time to see a specialist. Never prolong self-treatment as you could find yourself left with unsightly acne scars on your face and body. If your acne is painful and pus-filled, it might be a sign of an internal health issue like digestive disorders or thyroid problems.

It is perhaps time for you to turn to natural methods and consider homeopathic treatment for acne. Homeopathic medicine for acne focuses on long term healing as opposed to immediate results.
