Are you tired of getting acne? Have you tried everything that came to your mind, but nothing seems to work? Are you getting fed up and thinking of giving up? First and foremost, stop applying things on your skin randomly to get rid of the acne! Please understand that acne is a skin condition that occurs when your pores are blocked by oil, dead skin which causes whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples and applying randomly anything can make your acne worse.
Instead, you should listen to a dermatologist when it comes to your skin.
Like most of you, we too are curious to know how we can get rid of acne quickly and what is the best way to prevent it. And we found some cues thanks to Dr Jaishree Sharad, a celebrity and a top Mumbai-based dermatologist.
Dr Sharad took to Instagram to share a reel to reveal the ways to treat acne quickly. Don’t believe us? Check out the post for yourself:
She says these are quick fixes for acne and pimple treatment!
Apply 2.5 percent Benzoyl peroxide gel on the pimple twice a day. This reduces oil secretion, it is a comedolytic ie it reduces whiteheads and blackheads. Thirdly, it kills the bacteria responsible for acne.
Word of caution: Too much quantity can lead to burning, irritation, and redness.
Acne/pimple patches are hydro-colloid patches which can be applied on a pimple and left overnight or at least for 6 hours. These patches absorb oil or pus from the pimple and allow the wound to heal. They prevent scarring and of course, prevent the urge to pop a zit. Do not use them on large cystic or nodular acne.
Dermatologists are skilled to inject super diluted triamcinolone acetonide into a cyst or nodule to dry it within 12 hours. Don’t attempt it on your own. Visit your dermatologist. Don’t be scared of the word cortisone. This is a FDA approved safe treatment.
Quick fixes are only meant to be done when you have a party or an important event or a shoot. So, consult your dermatologist for proper management of acne.
Never pop a zit as this can lead to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and secondary infection
Toothpaste is a common hack but it can lead to irritation and scarring. Do not apply toothpaste on a zit
Always, listen to an expert when it comes to your skin because your skin is delicate and you need to be extra cautious with it.
