Get Rid Of Acne at Home

I wasn't born a flawless super model, and my guess is that you weren't either. And since we are not flawless, we you most likely are one of the billion people in this world that suffer from acne and acne scars. So how do we get rid of acne at home? Safe, effective ways to get rid of acne at home, include topical creams and performing chemical peels at home.

It was bad enough that the pimple popped up at the most annoyingly possible time in our life- they have a way of doing that- but the nasty thing, leaves behind it's calling card? Not cool. Our skin is fabulous, in that it heals itself, however too much collagen can be left behind in the skin's efforts to heal the acne scar. Deeper skin tones typically notice a darkening of the skin due to these pimple scars. Lighter skin tones experience redness. Most pimple scars are shallow in appearance, but some can reach deeper into the skin layers.

What makes acne scars worse?

Picking or Popping the Blemish

What is it about acne that makes you want to pop them? Seriously, some people get really excited about this. And no, no, no, it does not make them go away faster and it is not doing your skin any favors. So, repeat after me: “I will no longer pop my blemishes” Now, doesn’t that make you feel better? Popping the blemish can cause the pus and bacteria to go even deeper into your skin and cause acne scars. Picking at the scar, (who me?) slows the healing process of the skin, damaging the collagen your body is producing to heal the acne scars to begin with. Damaging the collagen will leave indentations, or deepen the scar making it more difficult to treat.

Get Rid of Acne at Home

Topical Creams:

There is a wide range of over the counter topical creams available. Inflammation caused by acne scars can be reduced by using Cortisone creams. Other creams can contain a type of bleaching agent, which is used to lighten up the hyperpigmenation that the pimple scar left behind. However, it can be hard to treat completely treat acne scarring with a bleaching cream, this is a spot treatment, and if not done correctly, it can still leave your face with an uneven skin tone. Any type of bleaching cream will make your skin more sensitive to the sun's rays. Individuals with lighter skin tones are more likely to sunburn. Sunscreen should be applied daily to protect the skin from new damage.

Performing Chemical Peels at home:

Performing chemical peels at home involve the application of a chemical solution to the surface of your skin, and can help to get rid of acne at home. There are different levels when performing chemical peels at home, each depending on the strength of the chemical used. The type, depth and size of your acne scars will determine the level of chemical peel that you do at home. The chemical solution dissolves the damaged, scarred surface tissue. The damaged skin is then replaced with a more youthful, healthier layer of skin, as the old skin peels off. The new skin is also smoother and less wrinkled. Performing chemical peels at home typically takes about a week, with the stronger, deeper peels taking slightly longer. There is typically no down time while performing chemical peels at home and normal daily activity can still be carried out. Most peeling will occur toward the end of the process, and depending on your individual comfort level, you may choose to not go out publicly during the final peeling stage; however it is safe to do so. Once the process has been completed, the appearances of acne scars and redness are improved, thus making it an effective way to get rid of acne at home. Again, sunscreen should be applied daily after completing chemical peels at home to help protect your skin from any new damage.

It is safe, quick, effective and easy to get rid of acne at home. Performing chemical peels at home, or applying topical creams leaves your skin refreshed and smooth. Performing chemical peels at home, provides minimized or reduced hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Our skin, especially our face, is our billboard to the world. Advertize to the world healthy, glowing skin and effectively get rid of acne at home.
