How can you keep your skin acne-free?  At times it can be challenging to get rid of zits.  Also, acne always seems to have the most awful timing, which can be quite frustrating. Some even stick around for more than just a day.  If your face hasn’t cleared up after a day or two, here are some tips to help you manage it.

You’ve heard it before but if you need reminding let me be clear, “Don’t pick at your pimples!”  Even though you may feel better for the moment, in the long run you might end up with acne scars or infections.When you pop a zit, it essentially causes your skin to rip.

Should you pop your pimples to get rid of them quickly?

In place of trying to deal with zits by picking at them with your fingers, try soothing your skin with comforting remedies.  One great suggestion by dermatologists is to treat pimples with an anti-inflammatory to lessen the appearance of redness.  You could simply take the ibuprofen orally, or you could add some water to crushed ibuprofen, mash it into a paste, and put it right on your pimple.

If it’s been weeks, and you’ve tried the tips in this article, but your acne persists, then you should see a dermatologist. They can help you understand why your treatment is not working and will come up with suggestions to keep your face blemish-free.
