Honey helps you against pimples before they even appear. If you dab a little honey on the spot before the pimple emerges from the skin, this will prevent the pimple from developing.

You can also add honey to face masks: stir a tablespoon of cinnamon with two tablespoons of honey, apply the mask and wash it off after 30 minutes with lukewarm water. 


9. Steam Bath


Pour 2 liters of hot water into a large bowl and hold your face about 10 to 15 minutes above it with a distance that is comfortable for you. 

To prevent the steam from escaping to the sides, you should put a terry towel over your head. After the steam bath, clean your face with cold water and gentle care (moisturizing fluid or gel).

You can add various additives to the bath (e.g. fresh herbs such as parsley, dried chamomile flowers or marigolds). The skin relaxes through the steam bath and is cleaned deep into the pores.

Healing earth is also often found in face masks - no wonder: it removes excess sebum, dirt and bacteria from the skin surface. Healing earth helps less against really stubborn pimples, but can generally improve the complexion.

The mask stays on the face for about twenty to thirty minutes until it is completely dry. Then the dry layers are simply rubbed, the last traces are rinsed off with lukewarm water and the skin is cared for with facial 

gel or fluid. The mask is best applied once a week. If touching the mask is too complex for you, you can simply use a ready-made healing earth paste. 


Good Skincare Routine For Acne

1. Wash your face regularly

Acne can be caused by several different factors in teenagers. However, removing excess oil and dirt from your face at least twice a day helps to prevent clogged and inflamed pores.

 Use an oil-free face cleanser and wash your face thoroughly (especially your forehead) in the morning, before bed and after exercise.

Washing your face gently and often helps a lot, but rubbing it too much can irritate acne (pimples and blackheads) and cause more inflammation and redness.

Use facial cleansers, such as those of the brands Cetaphil, Aveeno and Neutrogena.

During the early teenage years, the sebaceous glands produce more sebum (oil) due to hormonal changes, and this blocks the pores and irritates the hair follicles. 

Sometimes, bacteria grow inside the blocked pores, causing more inflammation, redness and pustules.

2.Don't forget to exfoliate your skin

Exfoliation is also important for skin health, as it removes the surface layer of dead cells, helps to clear clogged pores and to remove superficial blackheads.

Use exfoliating sponges made especially for the face, keeping in mind that both need to be moist. Apply a little cleanser (see the previous step) to the cloth and gently exfoliate your face using circular motions. Then rinse with water and pat dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.

Do not exfoliate your face every time you wash it - it will probably irritate your skin. Instead, exfoliate two to three times a week.

Keep exfoliating sponges clean. Spray some hydrogen peroxide on them after use or heat them in the microwave for about a minute - both methods will kill bacteria and most types of fungi.


3. Avoid touching your face

 Many teenagers have a habit of touching their faces and unconsciously poking their pimples, but that only makes them worse.

Bacteria can be easily transferred from the hands and nails to the face and can grow and clog pores. Therefore, avoid having the habit of resting your head on your hands or sleeping with your face touching your arms and hands.

Squeezing a pimple may seem like a quick and easy solution, but it can cause inflammation, infection and scarring. Letting acne take its course usually leaves your skin smooth and healthier in the long run.

Many dermatologists recommend not to pop or squeeze your own pimples. Instead, they suggest leaving it to an expert. 

4. Do not use excessive makeup or lotions

 During the outbreak of acne, use as little makeup as possible, as it can clog your pores and stimulate pimple formation. 

You probably won't have any problems using eye-shadow and lipstick, but avoid excess foundation, face powder and blush on areas affected by acne - and especially oil-based cosmetics.  The same goes for moisturizers. 

While keeping your skin hydrated helps prevent and combat acne and dryness caused by some medications, the creams and lotions used should be water-based, not oil-based.

When choosing a makeup for acne-prone skin, look for those "oil-free", "non-comedogenic", "water-based", or "mineral-based".

Lotions (from brands like Complex 15, Cetaphil, Aveeno and Eucerin) and sunscreens (from brands like Neutrogena or Coppertone) without oil are great options for skin with acne.

When using moisturizer, buy stretchers that have "balanced pH non-comedogenic" as they are not very acidic and will not block pores.


5. Stay hydrated and eat healthy

To stay healthy, your skin needs lots of water and essential nutrients, like vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids.

 The human body loses water in large quantities daily, so it needs to be replaced regularly. Unfortunately, the skin is the last organ to be replenished with water.Therefore, drink eight glasses of 250 ml of drinking water a day. 

The skin also needs nutrients, so avoid unhealthy foods with refined sugar and give preference to foods like whole grains, beans, nuts and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Foods that increase the level of glucose in the blood (such as the sugar found in sweets such as cookies, candies and white grains) cause overproduction of insulin, which can increase the production of oil by the skin's sebaceous glands.

Foods rich in vitamin C include citrus fruits, papaya and strawberries - vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen in the skin.

Some teenagers are allergic to dairy products (and not just lactose intolerant), so the appearance of acne can be caused by consumption of products like milk, cheese, chocolate or ice cream. 

Although it is uncommon, some experts believe that too much dairy can cause acne in some people.

More tips for pimples:


1. Integrate more vitamin A and zinc-containing foods into everyday life to reduce the formation of new pimples.

2. Eat more green foods and cut out sugar, alcohol, and coffee.

3. Drink enough to support the body's healing processes and provide the skin with sufficient moisture.

4. Do not press pimples or blackheads: Pressing gets dirt and bacteria into the skin faster. This extends the healing process and creates additional acne scars.

5. Keep hands away from the face.
Avoid makeup. Applying makeup extends the healing process.
6. Always remove makeup before going to bed.

7. Clean face with oil.

8. Avoid chemical care products. They often worsen blemishes and acne.
