Get clear skin: breakouts and acne treatment

Waiting for acne to clear on its own can be frustrating. Without treatment, acne can cause permanent scars, low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety.

To avoid these possible outcomes, dermatologists recommend that people treat acne. When the skin clears, treatment should continue. Treatment prevents new breakouts.

If you have acne, don’t rub or touch your pimples. Squeezing, pinching or picking at them can lead to scars or dark blotches. Gently wash your face with a cleanser twice a day—and after heavy exercise. Don’t use rough scrub pads; they may make the problem worse. It’s also important to shampoo your hair regularly. If you have oily hair, you may want to wash it every day.

Acne treatments all have the same goal: to prevent new breakouts and get clear skin without pimples, zits or blemishes. However, there are pros and cons you should consider when deciding on an acne treatment that’s right for you.

It is always best to consult a dermatologist before starting any acne treatment.
