Dear BeingGirl Experts,

Okay, I have pimples! How can I get rid of acne??

Wendy,

Most important when trying to get rid of acne is to understand what works for a friend may not be the solution for you.

 

Acne is a result of hormonal changes during puberty and right before your period. During this time there is an increase your skin's output of oil. Acne is also minimally related to the foods that you eat. (New findings show that foods containing white flour, potatoes and sugar raise the blood's insulin levels and testosterone levels also rise, promoting acne. Foods such as fruits and veggies will help keep insulin low and skin clear.)

 

Treatment should include gently washing your face gently with antibacterial soap several times each day. Noxema and other deep cleansing creams can be helpful too. Don't rub hard. Rubbing to hard and squeezing or popping a pimple can spread bacterial and inflammation, making your acne worse.

 

Hopefully by following this simple regime you will get rid of the excess oils, and your acne will clear up. If it doesn't then it may be time to enlist the help of a dermatologist.

 

We hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

You can try some acne creams/scrubs, I use 2 products, Clean and Clear Oil free acne wash, and Benzoyl Peroxide acne lotion. I hope this helps (be careful if you have sensitive skin)

Acne is not good and it is very important to keep our bodies healthy, do not eat anything that has a lot of grease and oils do not eat anything that is deep fried I used to eat these things and I stopped eating these things years ago and now my acne is not here anymore. I do not eat anything that is put into a fryer because that is what french fries are put into that's how they're cooked, eat a lot of healthy, fresh, delicious, nutritious ingredients and also fruits and vegetables. It is also a good idea to change somethings about yourself for example: the way you eat and what you eat and what you drink. It is important to use a cleanser and moisturizer everyday and it is best to put this one after your showered and dressed and sometimes when your done putting on your cleanser or moisturizer you should use an astringent it's a clear liquid and you should use a cotton ball buy them at a beauty store.

Following a regimen of washing my face with a mild cleanser 2-3 times a day and NOT touching my face or popping pimples helps to keep my acne down. My face gets really oily, though, so I keep face wipes at school to keep the shine down...
