Many of us assume that spots are something that we suffer we as teenagers and then get over. For a most of us this is the case, but actually there is nothing to stop spots from coming back.
It is essential that you look after your skin to stop zits and spots from growing on your face – although they can grow in other places too.
A Good Skin Care Regime
One of the best things you can do is develop a good skin care regime. This can take a while to get right as we all have skin that is different conditions. You can take help and advice from others about what might work but realistically it is about what works for you. You need to try different regimes to see what your skin best responds to. Make sure you give each other a fair trial and try it for a few weeks before you give up and try something new. This means always taking off your make-up at the end of the day and using a good cleanser to remove dirt and grime from the day before.
When you look up skin care products you’ll find a whole host of them for sale. It is important to invest in high-quality skin care as these are the products that work. You want to make sure you have a good cleanser and toner as well as an everyday moisturiser that you can use to keep your skin hydrated.
You Are What You Eat
We know that our skin responds to our diet, so if you eat badly then you are likely to develop spots. Instead you want to make sure that you have a well-balanced and healthy diet. On top of that you need to make sure that you drink plenty of water. By drinking enough water you help to rinse toxins out of your body and this gives you less chance of developing spots.
If you do develop spots then you are probably going to want to know how to remove them. The good news is that it is possible to buy products to assist with removing papules (zits and spots). Much like other skin care products you’re going to need to experiment with these and work out what works best for you.
If you find that spots come back time and time again and are painful then you should seek medical advice. This can sometimes be a sign of infection and therefore you need a course of antibiotics to get rid of them. Before you get to this stage try over the counter remedies such as Benzoyl Peroxide to see if that helps. Other, more extreme treatments are available. You should give plenty of thought before you go down this route.
However, treatments such as chemical peels and osmosis are often used where spots are frequent and sore. You’ll need to seek medical advice if you want to go down this route.
