If you are young and beginning or going through puberty, or if you are a female in your early 20s, you are probably going to develop acne sometime during this period. Now you can prevent most of it, but if prevention did not work and you wake up one morning with acne (pimples), here is what you need to do to get rid of them.

First Step

Do not panic! Your first action may be to yell out and then squeeze the acne. This is the wrong thing to do. All that squeezing the pimple will do is make it worse by spreading the infection, making the infected site more pronounced and could leave a permanent scar.

Second Step

Once you start seeing visible acne on your face, the next step is to take action to control it. There are several actions you can take and here are a few of the best:

Visine- Putting this on your acne will help reduce the redness. The best way I found to apply it is to put the Visine on a cotton swab, and then apply it to the infected area. Most who use this technique apply it at night about an hour before they go to bed and allow it to work as they sleep

Ice– This is a more labor intensive action to take. Place an ice-cube in a cloth towel and apply it to your acne every two hours for two minutes. This will shrink the pimple and reduce the redness.

Toothpaste– Applying toothpaste to the infected area of the face before retiring for the night will also reduce the redness and shrink the pimple.

Aloe Vera– Take the solution from the plant or buy a cream from your local store and rub it on the infected area, this should clear up the acne and also will help prevent further out break.

Third Step

Once you have your current outbreak under control, it is time to take preventive measures to stop your acne before it becomes visible.

Acne is caused by excess sebum (oil), excess dead skin and bacteria. By keeping your face properly cleaned, you can prevent future outbreaks of acne.

To do this:

Cleanse– Cleanse your face at least twice a day with a good cleanser designed for your skin type. Cleansing should be done once in the morning and again before going to bed at night. This will remove bacteria, oil and dead skin, the three items needed to prevent acne.

Moisturize– Keep your skin hydrated to prevent acne and give your face that youthful look.

Exfoliate– Exfoliate your skin at least once or twice a week to remove dead skin and expose new skin. This action will help remove dead skins preventing the clogging of your pores.


There are ways you can attack acne once it breaks out on your face, but the best way is to control acne by attacking it before it becomes visible.
