5 ways to keep pimples at bay

Our skin has its up and downs and on really bad days, we just want to hide under our blankets. And it can affect anyone – even stars with access to the top dermatologists in the world. Kendall Jenner addressed critics of her skin at the Golden Globes by saying “Never let that s— stop you.” New Zealand pop star Lorde has been opening up about her own “years and years and years”- long acne battle and is letting people know she doesn’t need any unsolicited advice, #thanksbutnothanks. The singer let out all her grievances of dealing with acne in an Instagram story saying, “For the real though, acne sucks.”

YES! Dealing with acne is no easy feat, especially when we are constantly faced with perfectly-curated instagram feeds. There is no one-size-fits-all remedy and most times, even the most expensive makeup can’t cover up those spots and splotches. While we do not possess any instant formula, here are five ways that can help you keep those pesky zits at bay:

  1. Watch What You Consume: If you are prone to breakouts, try making changes to your diet. As more and more information is shared about the link between skin woes and diets, there’s evidence that both high glycemic index foods, as well as dairy can potentially cause breakouts. Keeping a good diet can make a lot of difference to your skin condition. Of course, the one thing which never fails, would be to drink plenty of water, so your body can flush out the toxins within. But more than just water, make sure you include sufficient greens in your meals, avoid greasy food, red meat and sugars.

  2. Change Your Pillowcase Often: One of the biggest causes of breakouts is dirty pillowcases. When you sleep, your face is rubbed across the pillowcase which is host to a mirage of germs and bacteria. From drool that catches on your pillowcase when you’re sleeping to oil and sebum secretion from both face and scalp, as well as other residual germs from the air, the buildup is plenty enough to cause a volcano of breakout. We say change your pillowcase at least once a week and daily if you feel up to it.

  3. Don’t Touch Your Face: Yes, pimples are literally the bane of our existence and the urge to squeeze and pop them is real. However, that could just be the worst idea, ever! Your hands are filled with germs and bacteria you cannot see, and these would easily irritate and cause inflammation to your pimples when you squeeze or even just touch them. In fact, you may just be doing yourself a disservice as redness, blemishes and scars are more likely to be left behind. Trying to squeeze a pimple might just result in bigger problems as bacteria may spread and get into other pores, leading to more acne.

  4. Using The Right Products: There are skin care products, and then there are skin care products tailored for acne skin. It is important to make sure you are using the right products such that you can efficiently and successfully combat acne problems. Make sure to use products which are not too harsh or too oily as they can have an adverse effect causing further breakouts we definitely do not want!

  5. Leave It To The Professionals: Occasional pimples may pass but when you are persistently plagued by endless breakouts, you may be suffering from acne. And here is one of the biggest lies about acne: it will pass. Many people who suffer from chronic acne feel depressed as if they are in a constant losing battle. Don’t “wait and see” when it comes to acne – engage the service of your most trusted aesthetician. It is important that your blackheads/whiteheads/pimples are extracted in the correct way, to prevent scars from being left behind, and here at Estetica, we pride ourselves in being good with our handiwork. Embark on this skincare journey with us and you can be sure that your painful acne days are finally behind you.
