Help Keep Your Skin Clear, At Home

Patients of all ages and backgrounds experience frustration with acne. This includes teenagers and adults alike. In fact millions of Americans suffer from acne each year. Acne is commonly characterized by red, irritated skin that can become bumpy in texture and even full of white or black heads.

Acne is often caused by clogged pores and oils or dirt on the skin’s surface. Primarily associated with your face, acne can also appear on other areas of the body such as the chest and back.

While professional grade products and treatments such as laser resurfacing are available to clear your acne, there are also many steps you can take at home to improve the appearance of your skin.

  • Wash your face twice a day, using a gentle cleanser.

  • Avoid using harsh cloths or sponges to scrub your acne. Use your hands instead.

  • Use astringent to remove additional oil from your face after washing it.

  • Clean any devices that come into contact with your face regularly such as your glasses and cell phone.

  • Do NOT pick or “pop” pimples.

If taking care of your skin at home fails to improve the appearance of your acne and you would like to learn more about professional therapy contact Dr. George Hruza today.
