Acne/Pimple/Zit: What are the best remedies?

Have you ever suffered being attacked by nasty acne/pimples in your face? If yes, I know what you feel. It's a big impact of frustrations, low self-esteem problem and most of all scarred left over.
Here's some simple tips I could share with you:
  • Wash your face once or twice a day to prevent the oil build up in your face that may cause acne.
  • Give time washing your leftover make up. Your face should be free from it.
  • Don't prick, squeeze, or pop your pimple because it may create and leave deep scar. There's a special tool to gently unclog the existing pimple and would eliminate the chances of having scar.
  • Don't scrub your face, because sometimes severe scrubbing may cause skin irritation and the more it will get worst. Just use your hand gently and use mild soap.
  • If you have long hair, keep it away from your face and wash it regularly to reduce oil.
  • Always wash your hands and try not to touch your face. Avoid too much exposure to heat or sun, it's one of the misconception, yes sun tanning help to hide pimples but it doesn't help them go away. Anyway too much sun is not a good idea because it may also leave sun burn and could turn up to skin cancer later in life.
  • I read something from the book, try putting toothpaste on an existing breakout. And make do-it-yourself mask made up of ground aspirin, for this is also a salicylic treatment regimen. Cause both contain the same chemical that help reduce pimples.
  • Reduce eating to much sweets such as cakes, chocolates, candy because sugar does help bacteria in the body to flourish and cocoa butter in chocolate, when ingested, does cause more pimples to appear. But still it depends upon our body biochemistries.
  • Drink a lot of water. Unless contraindicated to do so. Atleast 8 glasses of water a day.
  • Have a balanced diet, much more with vegetables and fruits rich in Vitamin C and E.
  • Have enough sleep, because sleep deprivation weakened immune system that may attrack free radicals and may cause unhealthy skin, pimples and many other diseases.
  • And to sum it up, have a healthy LIFESTYLE!!!
