How Do You Get Rid of Acne: 4 Tips to Help Clear Your Skin Fast


Four tips to help you get rid of acne and get the clear, blemish-free skin you’ve always wanted.

Oh how we wish there was a magic blemish remover potion for getting rid of acne and blackheads fast. Unfortunately, there’s not. But all is not lost. Here are 4 Steps you can take to help clear your skin and keep it blemish-free.

1. Visit a Dermatologist

It may seem simplistic, but making an appointment with dermatologist to get advice about how to get rid of breakouts is one of the smartest things you can do to help clear your skin. Dermatologists are experts in all things skin and therefore best person to help treat your skin. He or she will examine your skin, give you a diagnosis, and then talk through the best, most-effective options tailored to your skin’s specific needs.

2. Try Topical Acne Treatments

If you can’t make it to a dermatologist, topical treatments can go a long way in helping you with getting rid of acne and blackheads. A product containing Salicylic Acid, aka Beta Hydroxy Acid, can exfoliate deep down in pores and can help unclog them. Salicylic acid also has anti-bacterial and soothing properties, which are ideal for breakout-prone skin. Then there’s benzoyl peroxide, which kills the bacteria that causes acne. But go easy, benzoyl peroxide can be very drying and can irritate your skin if you use too much too fast. A little goes a long way.

3. Wash Your Face Thoroughly

Before you apply any topical treatment for acne and blackheads, it’s important to cleanse your face properly so your topical acne treatments absorb better. We recommend cleansing twice per day: once in the morning to remove excess oil and impurities and once in the evening to remove your makeup. Opt for an ultra-gentle cleanser formulated for acne-prone skin and warm water (never hot!). Try a Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Brush, for ultra-clean skin. It will clean your skin 6 x better than your hands alone and will be incredibly gentle.

4. Reduce Skin Irritation As Much As Possible

If you have acne or blackheads, your skin, by definition, is already irritated and not functioning optimally. Any additional skin irritation will impede the healing process and can make things worse. So if clearing up acne is your goal, you’ll want to avoid irritation as much as possible. Irritation can be caused by over washing and harsh scrubbing, unprotected sun exposure, picking at your skin, and using skincare products with harsh ingredients.
