There's no denying that acne is a nightmare for most teenage girls. Who'd want to go to school with lots of red, swollen bumps on her face? If you suffer from acne, then you've come to the right place. Below are tips on how to eliminate and prevent nasty blemishes depending on your skin type!
For dry, sensitive skin
Does your skin feel tight, rough, and flaky? If your answer is yes, then you have dry skin! The flakes from dry skin can clog your pores, which can lead to the development of pimple-causing bacteria. Yikes! And since your skin lacks moisture, it can also be sensitive. That's why you have to be extra careful in treating your pimples to avoid further irritation.
Wash your face every day with a gentle anti-acne facial foam to remove dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells, and other skin impurities. Doing so will banish zits and prevent future breakouts. Try Pond's Perfect Care facial wash! This gentle cleanser effectively removes dirt and residue but doesn't strip away your skin's natural oils, leaving your skin smooth and moisturized.
We also advise you to drink eight to ten glasses of water daily. Remember: your skin produces more oil when it's dry, so keeping it hydrated inside and out would be best. The result? Less breakouts!
For normal skin
If you have skin that has zero to few imperfections and is neither oily or dry, then you are one lucky girl. Acne is not an issue, though there may be instances that an occasional zit pops up out of the blue. Still, you have nothing to fuss about if you have this skin type, compared to others. Spot-treat those surprise pimples with a leave-on clearing gel.
Don't forget to exfoliate at least twice a week for a smoother and brighter complexion! Use Pond's Clear Solutions facial scrub to wash away pimple-causing germs. Aside from its anti-bacterial formula, it also helps reduce blackheads, whiteheads, redness, and even dullness for a more radiant skin.
For oily and combination skin
Girls with oily skin experience pimple breakouts more than those with other skin types. The more oil that your skin produces, the more acne-prone your skin will be. Why? Because your pores will get blocked, resulting in bacteria buildup.
Those with combination skin, on the other hand, have dry cheeks and an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, upper lip, and chin). Since oil production is abundant in the T-zone, the area is susceptible to pimples (plus blackheads and whiteheads).
The best way to treat and prevent pimples is to cleanse your face with an anti-acne facial wash that gets rid of excess oil, dirt, and bacteria and to spot-treat stubborn zits. Here's a duo you can rely on: the Pond's Acne Clear regimen.
The facial foam and leave-on gel have Lock + Clear Technology that goes deep into the skin, formulated with Thymo-T Essence that destroys acne at the root and stops new blemishes from forming. Isn't that awesome? Plus, you'll get clear, smooth skin in three days! Julia Barretto and Alexa Ilacad swear by this routine, so it's definitely worth a try!
