  • Be mentally free. Don’t take stress. I know easier said than done. You can try to meditate if you are under any kind of stress or engage yourself in some hobby.
  • Water-water and water: Staying hydrated is one of the keys to a healthy and glowing skin.  Make sure to drink at least 3-4 litres of water daily. Water purifies the body by removing toxins, thus aiding in recovery from bouts of acne.
  • Avoid dairy products.
  • Avoid sugar and sugary stuff.
  • Exfoliate twice a week to remove build up of dead skin cells and impurities in order to avoid appearance of acne.
  • Always remove make up before going to sleep.
  • Use salicylic acid face wash.

Aforesaid remedies and precautionary measures will certainly cure acne. If your acne does not get better, you can try some OTC treatment. If you are still not satisfied, a dermatologist may be consulted. Apart from ointments and oral medication, laser and microdermabrasion are effective tools if your acne is chronic and acute. But these treatments are not within everyone’s reach because of high costs.

One has to understand that treating severe acne takes a lot of patience. Sometimes none of the treatments works. But then comes a point when acne cures on its own when you have quitted every kind of treatment.

Wish you a healthy, glowing and crystal clear skin.
