How to Permanently Get Rid of Acne before Your Wedding

Large

We all wish we were born with a flawless complexion free of any spots, blemishes, and impurities but unfortunately, that is rarely the case. The reason behind your skin problems could be anything from your mental state to the pollution in the air. In order to know how to properly treat your skin from acne, you need to first find out the type of acne that you have because there are so many. And the best way to set a proper plan to permanently get rid of the issue, especially if it’s before your wedding, is to follow up with a dermatologist who thoroughly understands the various skin types that are there and knows exactly how to deal with each and every one of them.

Each type of acne has its own properties and treatment method, so let’s get to it:

Acne Vulgaris

This is the most common type of acne that people suffer from. Acne vulgaris is characterized by the presence and appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of pimples, like comedones, nodules, and sometimes cysts. This type of acne occurs when oil glands become clogged, which is again very common. British researches have concluded that Acne vulgaris is 80% genetic but can easily be treated if one takes proper care of their skin (Constant cleansing, scrubbing, and moisturizing) and by visiting your derm.

Mild Acne

If you have fewer than 15 inflamed bumps, fewer than 20 blackheads & whiteheads, and fewer than 30 lesions (wounds and abrasions), then you have mild acne. This type of acne is typically treated with topical medications, like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

Hormonal Acne

A type of acne that is especially known among women ages 20 to 40. It is caused by estrogen and progesterone fluctuations, which keep on changing throughout the menstrual cycle. Hormonal acne starts taking place when oil production is increased in the pore, which is caused by hormonal fluctuations. This type usually appears around your chin and jawline, it occurs when you’re seriously stressed about something, like ummm...your wedding? and it usually recurs once a month. Over-the-counter cleansers and topical retinoids are typical treatments for hormonal acne.

Inflammatory Acne

This type of acne causes swelling, redness, and pain in the skin in the case of acne cysts, and it’s caused by stored bacteria that is designed to eff up your life, mainly because of its long life-cycle and especially if your inflammatory acne isn’t mild. If you have moderate to severe inflammatory acne that is widespread and inflamed, forget OTC products, especially if the wedding countdown has begun, and go visit your dermo now because you need a prescription medication.

Cystic Acne

This type is characterized by large, red, and annoyingly painful breakouts that run deep in the skin and can linger for years and leave scars if not treated fast enough. Cystic acne is a severe type of inflammatory acne that manifests itself as big, red bumps full of pus that you will want to scratch! Careful because if you do scratch a cyst and it bursts, the infection in your skin may spread. Cystic acne can spread to the face, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. It can be treated using Isotretinoin, Spironolactone, and sometimes, steroid injections that are, of course, performed by a doctor. Cystic Acne requires the care of a dermatologist.

Other factors that can trigger acne:

Sebaceous glands: if your doctor confirms that this is the reason behind your acne, then there’s no other way around it, your dermatologist is the answer.

Bad habits: junk food, smoking, using uncertified and chemically infused cosmetics and skin products, and using products that clog the pores.

Proper skincare:

Cleansing: Using a drugstore face wash isn’t the best way to go about cleansing your face when it’s covered in acne. You need a face wash that is chemical-free and suitable for your skin type. Try going natural now! You won’t regret it. 

Moisturizing: Moisturizing your face does not make your acne worse like some believe. You should moisturize, but with a non-clogging or non-comedogenic cream or lotion. Dry skin can actually create more acne as a result of clogged pores, something that no bride would ever wish for. 

Foundation: You need an oil-free foundation that goes with oily skin. Invest in a good foundation that won’t damage your skin more and use that foundation on your wedding day as well. 

Natural oils:

Coconut oil: since it’s high in Laurie acid, coconut oil helps destroy the bacteria that cause acne. Not only that, but this miracle oil can also reduce acne scarring. You only need to pour a very little amount of it onto a cotton ball and then gently wipe your face with it. However, coconut oil can be harmful to skin that is immensely oily. 

Tea tree oil: this is the best and most effective oil for acne treatment. It works its way into skin pores and disinfects the skin, it unblocks the sebaceous glands, unclogs pores, gets rid of dead skin cells, and destroys acne-causing bacteria. You need only dispense a few drops of it onto a damp cotton swab and then apply directly on the spots that need treatment and not onto the whole face.
