- Don’t pick on your pimples
Don’t take this lightly; this is a very important skin care tip if you have pimples. Keep your hands off the breakouts! Don’t play with it, pick on it or squeeze it – you’ll be left with deep scars that will remain for a very, very long time. Why? We’ll tell you why. When you get acne, what happens is that there is intense inflammation and a loss of collagen. So when you squeeze your pimples, you intensify the inflammation and push the bacteria and pus in your pimple to go deeper into your skin, which in turn results in more loss of collagen, thus, severe deep scars. Get the scar scare?
- Don’t expose scars to sun
Ok, so you have acne scars, your body tries to take care of it by healing and lightening the scars over time. It’s a slow process, but time does make scars fade away. However, if you expose acne scars to the scorching sun, this healing process will slow down significantly and the scars will only get darker. The fairness tip to follow here is to avoid the sun, use a sunscreen diligently (check out this article on SPF to understand sun protection better) and cover yourself up with sun-protective gear like a hat or a scarf or an umbrella.
- Don’t overdo
When acne strikes, panic prevails. We try out every beauty product at home, go by a friend’s recommendation and pick up new products, look up and follow bizarre skin care tips.
