We can only sleep peacefully thinking that we managed to cover every square inch of our face and popped everything that could be popped.
The story continues when you wake up after an evening of pimple-popping and blackhead-purging session. Your face looks like an aftermath of a battlefield; bloody and horrendous.
You might even manage to create craters or depressions in some parts of your face. Yes, that will forever leave a battle mark (Hello, acne scars!). Then comes the guilt, regret, and self-loathing (or it could just be hormones…) and you just break down and cry.
The good news is, you are not alone.
Many of us have tried countless products to keep blemishes and breakouts away. Some girls have counters filled with beauty products with promises of banishing these unsightly marks. So, why doesn’t it work?
Some products don’t do well if mixed with other skin care products. Chemicals have a different reaction when mixed with other chemicals. That’s why you should be cautious when trying out products. It may be good by itself, but disastrous when mixed with others.
Common acne remedies are Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic acid. Products with these components are good in banishing blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. If you do not respond to these types, it may be a sign that you need antibiotics or prescription acne medication.
You must see an esthetician or dermatologist and let them assess what type of medication you should use.
Here is a link to typical acne remedies you may use.
