Now that we’ve talked about the types of acne and how to treat it at home let’s talk about how it can be prevented in the first place.
There are some pretty easy steps and precautions that anyone can follow.
- Firstly, start treatment as soon as possible. Don’t wait for a gross disgusting infection to form or giant craters on your face to occur before you see a doctor.
- Don’t irritate your skin. Try to reduce touching or poking at your pimples and scars, this can increase inflammation and cause your acne to most likely scar. I know it’s a hard ask, but you have to power through.
- Talk to your doctor. Some people generally get larger and deeper pimples, which are more likely to scar, or sometimes you just have the skin type where even a small zit leaves a scar. So talk to your doctor so they can nip the problem in the bud.
