“I suffered from acne for 5-year continuous years. I got frustrated and irritated with my looks. I used to squeeze my pimples and to my surprise, one squeezed pimple turned into multiple new pimples. Hence, I was trapped in a vicious cycle of pimples and multiple pimples. Soon, the spot of squeezed pimple ended up in a scar that looks ugly on my face. I decided to consult a dermatologist. The medications helped me to get rid of acne but still, I have few scars on my face that are still untreatable.” ~ Iva
The article shares few tips that you need to avoid if you are suffering from acne outbreak.
- Indulging the blame-game
Acne can happen to anyone at any point in time. As per acne.org, adult acne affects 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women at some time in their adult lives. So, instead of blaming yourself for acne, it is better to stay calm and think of ways to get rid of it. The main reason for acne to occur is genes. So, if your parents had acne, you are more likely to get it too.
Just note that acne is not your fault, so stop blaming and channelize your energy into finding some good treatment that works best for you.
- Using cheap, harsh or irritating products
The first thing you do when you see a pimple is that you rush to the washroom and instantly wash your face with harsh and chemical-filled cleaner. Unfortunately, instead of decreasing the problem, it increases more of it because of the chemicals you used for washing your face. So, avoid using cheap and hash products if you are suffering from an outbreak of acne.
- Not seeking professional help
As soon as you witness the first outbreak of the acne, it is an alarming sign to make a visit to a doctor. Otherwise, haunting scars may appear that you will never wish for. Once scar hits your skin, you will have to undergo a long process to get rid of it.
So, it is highly advisable to make an appointment with a dermatologist once you get hit by acne. Also, another advice is to switch to a healthy, balanced diet for effective treatment of acne.

But note that acne outbreak is a very common phenomenon and there is nothing to be worried of. Be confident and don’t let acne ruin your happiness. Consult a doctor or look for some natural treatment to get rid of it. But never allow acne to haunt you.
