How To Outsmart A Pimple

                                        



The best way to stop acne in its tracks is first and foremost, AVOID picking it at all cost. Picking only leads to irritation and can lead to scarring.  
Immediately apply ice to the area for at least 60 seconds.  A really cool trick is to freeze green tea in an ice tray and use the green tea ice cubes.  

Green Tea contains an antioxidant called EGCG that acts as an anti-inflammatory and prevents the abnormal colonization of P. Acnes bacteria; the cause of  acne. 
Stick with ONE acne zapping ingredient such as, retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid or sulfur.  Using a product with several different ingredients increases rick of allergic reactions, redness, and dry skin.


Finally, DO NOT EXFOLIATE. Exfoliating  will only make the pimple irrupted or  instigate a breakout.
