Do you know why pimples appear on your chin? We have prepared for you the ways to get rid of the fact of acne, which is related to your health.
- Wash your face properly
✅ Wash your face 2 times a day (when you wake up and before going to bed) and every time after you sweat.
⛔ Don’t cleanse your skin more often, as this can irritate it and make acne worse.
✅ Use your fingertips to gently massage the cleanser into your skin and then rinse it off with warm water.
✅ Choose a gentle cleanser, preferably the one that contains ingredients like salicylic or glycolic acid or probiotics.
⛔ Don’t use harsh cleansing agents or abrasive washcloths.
⛔ Never sleep with your makeup on.
- Choose the right skin care routine.
✅ Moisturize your skin regularly to prevent it from drying out.
✅ Exfoliate your skin with a gentle exfoliant containing salicylic or lactic acid about 2-3 times a week.
⛔ Don’t scrub your chin because this can irritate acne.
✅ Wear an oil-free sunscreen every day.
⛔ Avoid skincare products that contain oils because they can clog your pores. Look for terms like “non-comedogenic” or “non-acnegenic” on the labels.
- Make your own spot treatment.
✅ Make a mixture of 2% salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and 1% hydrocortisone cream by putting a drop of all 3 in the palm of your hand. Then apply it directly to the affected area to kill acne-causing bacteria, open pimples, remove oil, and quicken the healing process.
- Apply ice.
✅ Apply ice wrapped in a clean cloth to the affected area for about 5 minutes, using very little pressure. This will help you to reduce redness and pain.
- Take care of your hair.
✅ Keep your hair away from your chin and jawline.
✅ Wash your hair frequently to prevent oil on your scalp and hair from making its way onto your face and triggering breakouts.
- Stop touching your face.
✅ Keep your hands away from your chin and jawline. The less you touch your face, the sooner it will heal.
⛔ Don’t pick or pop your pimples, as this can spread bacteria, slow down the healing process, and lead to scars.
- Keep your sheets clean.
✅ Change your sheets every week and your pillowcases 2-3 times a week. This will prevent dead skin cells, bacteria, and dirt that have collected on these surfaces from clogging the pores on your face.
- Cut out dairy.
✅ Exclude dairy products from your diet because they can affect your hormonal balance and cause skin inflammation.
