Acne- Prevention Of Infection

Acne does not suddenly develop to pus-filled pimples. It takes some time. If you can prevent the infection, you may avoid acne scars. Why not treat acne at the stage of the whitehead or blackhead itself? Let us see how to do that.

During the process of acne formation, whiteheads and blackheads turn into papules or pustules, also called pimples. If we can keep the pore open, the follicle will not get infected.

Do the following:

  • Use topical formulations made with retinoids or AHAs. That will ensure the rapid turnover of cells and remove the top layer of dead skin cells.
  • You can also use microdermabrasion to keep the pores open.
  • Keep your hands clean and wash your face with a good acid-balanced cleanser or an AHA based cleanser. Don't over-clean the skin. Clean it two to three times a day.
  • Don't touch the spots. That may infect them.
  • Trying to remove the comedones may infect them. Extract whiteheads and blackheads. carefully with sterile tools.

Stopping acne before it gets infected is the right way to avoid pus-filled pimples and scars. Learn more about Acne Treatment At Mild Stage.
