How To Prevent Acne Scarring

Acne happens to just about everyone and can affect both the young and the old. It can be a pain to deal with no matter your age, but you do need to deal with it properly or you'll end up with more acne, or even scarring due to your acne. If you have a lot of acne and have tried just about everything over the counter, you may want to visit a dermatologist. Severe acne may require the help of medication (oral or topical) in order to clear it up. See below for tips on how to prevent scarring from acne.

Never Pick Or Pop Pimples

You may feel like you need to pop a pimple or zit, especially if it's a white head. It's very important that you never do this, as you will cause it to become an open sore, which can could leave you with a scar after it heals. Try your best to keep your hands off of your pimples and zits. Don't scratch at your face or pick at your acne at all.

Keep Your Hands Off Of Your Face

Your hands carry germs, bacteria, and oils, all of which can make your acne worse or infect any pimples that are open sores. Keep your hands off of your face throughout the day. If you have to touch your face, do so only after you've washed your hands thoroughly. 

Use Sunscreen

The sun can cause brown spots on your face, and it can cause discoloring when you have acne as well. When you have breakouts, be sure to use sunscreen on your face to prevent any darkening of your skin where you have breakouts. Apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 on your face daily, no matter the season.

Preventing acne in the first place is another way to prevent scarring. Prevent acne by following the tips below:

Clean Phones

Your hands are dirty enough, but think about where you put your phone and the amount of bacteria and oils on it. Clean your cell phone, house phone and work phone to remove any bacteria and oils that may be on them. If you notice breakouts along where your phone would sit on your face, your phone may be the cause of your acne. 

Drink Water

Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and to clear up your skin. Water will hydrate your body and your skin, and can clean out your pores.

Eat Well

Your diet should be rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. Skip the greasy, oily, or sugary foods, or at least limit them as best as you can. These foods are not good for your body and can reflect poorly on your skin. Change your diet to change your skin.

See the dermatologist if you are experiencing severe acne, or if you have acne that just doesn't go away. You may need something that will work harder to get rid of your acne.
