Acne Don’ts

If you are constantly doing the following, you are weakening the natural protection of your skin, you are slowing the healing process of your skin, and are making your skin look bad and your acne worse:

1. Shaving with Four-In-One Razor Blades

Never use these four-in-one razor blades when shaving. If you want to know how to clear up acne these razors are a no no, especially if you have large bumps and painful cysts. The reason is that blades that guarantee the “closest shave” will cause severe irritation and will damage your skin. Always use a single blade when having “live” acne.

2. Smoking

Besides lung cancer, heart disease and early aging of your skin, smoking causes the contraction of the small capillaries and blood vessels of the skin, thus depriving your skin from the essential oxygen I needs for the creation and maintenance of healthy cells.

3. Taking Antibiotics

Antibiotics destroy all the bacteria in your system including the good, probiotic bacteria like acidophilus that have many essential qualities that promote clear skin. One of these qualities is the ability to protect your digestive tract from parasites and fungus.

4. Picking Your Skin

Want to know how to clear up acne, its simple, never, never and ever touch, pick or squeeze your pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. Regardless of how temping it may seem. By doing this unprofessionally, you make your acne worse by aggravating your existing inflammation and pushing the puss deeper and wider into the skin. There are in fact very effective and safe ways of dealing with small whiteheads or blackheads but I would strongly recommend leaving that to the professionals if you care for your skin and wish to prevent further scarring.

5. Taking excessive amounts of Vitamins

Vitamin A from natural sources and in small quantities can significantly enhance the healing process of your skin but when taken excessively it can seriously damage your liver and cause severe health problems and side effects.
