How To Avoid Pimples On Your Skin Before They Worsen

This is actually mostly women’s worries even though men also incur pimples. To women, [2]they always want their skin to be as good as new.

But the problem is that these pimples just can’t really tell one who doesn’t want them on their skin but rather for them they make their unique catch which actually doesn’t please the ladies.[9]

Guess what you don’t have to worry anymore because after you perform the below acts then you’ll have ended the era of pimples on your skin forever.

Have Clean Hands before you touch pimples

Don’t attempt to touch anything without washing your hands thoroughly with soap before and afterwards,[2] or you may make things worse.[12] Dirty hands drag bacteria from the zit to other parts of your face, causing breakouts to spread. And outside bacteria that is introduced to the zit can turn it from a passing disturbance to a long-lasting inflammation disaster.

Apply Ointment before you touch pimples

“If you pop the pimple, it becomes a micro-wound,” explains Kazin. [3]At this point, it’s best to apply a little antibiotic ointment at night to help speed up healing. Allowing it to “breathe” during the day without anything on it, if possible,[8] will also help it mend faster. (You don’t want to keep ointment on it all the time, since oxygen is also needed for skin repair.)

Don’t Keep Going in for More

Once you’ve popped it, resist the urge to continuously badger it,[7] even though it may look like there’s more to push out. “The pimple will swell in response,[9] and it’s best not to try to get more out of it because the bump that’s left over is most likely just swelling,” says Kazin. You’ll also worsen trauma to the area, increasing the chances of scarring and spreading.

Do NOT Touch That Scab!

The most important thing to prevent scarring is to not pick the scab once it forms.[5]That scab is hard at work regenerating skin beneath it, and interrupting the process is the absolute worst thing you can do. Any scabs that form after that first one is picked off won’t set as well as the original one,[15] and you’re nearly guaranteeing yourself lingering discoloration or a scar.

Conceal with Care

it’s okay to apply makeup on top of the popped zit. That being said,[4] it’s not ideal (so if you don’t have to—don’t), but it shouldn’t interfere with healing if you’re gently cleansing in the morning and evening and going makeup-free overnight while catching your zzz’s.[10]

And if You Can Keep Your Hands off, use an Acne Cover

If you haven’t popped it yet, avoid temptation by keeping the zit out of sight.[6] A shield like goes over the blemish to absorb yucky pus and oil.[9] The cover turns white when the job is done so that you don’t have to peek. We found that it really worked to keep our hands off, and no one seemed to notice or question the tidy little bandage!.

The bottom line: It’s true that not popping a zit is always the best option to make it go away fastest.[7] But if you do burst the pimple, you can speed up healing by treating it like a micro-wound with ointment application at night and keeping your hands off your face.[1]
