How NOT to Treat Your Acne

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding how to get rid of your acne. It is important that you are treating your acne in the correct way in order for your skin to heal properly. 

First off, do not wash your face multiple days a day to get rid of your acne. There is a misconception that you need to 'dry out' your entire face to clear your skin. This can be very damaging to your skin and it can be difficult to replenish hydration. Only wash your face in the morning and at night. 

Do not put toothpaste on your pimples. Many believe that this is a good spot treatment technique, however this can actually make the blemish more noticeable, causing your skin to be red and irritated. Purchase a spot treatment from the store instead. These contain ingredients that will dry our your pimple without irritation. 

Try not to touch your pimples! Once you see a large blemish on your face, it can be tempting to rip it off or pop it. Touching your face can cause dirt and germs to seep into your pores. Instead, try cleaning your face with our Double-Duty Amino Gel Face Cleanser + Makeup Remover in order to lift away impurities. 

Avoid using these methods to treat your acne! Instead, cleanse your face and visit a dermatologist to give you the right spot treatment.
