How do you get rid of spots?
Spots are a tricky one! It’s natural to get some acne as you pass through the teen years and everyone’s skin is different so it’s about trial and error until you find what works best for you. I used to use products like Micellar Cleansing Water, Cetaphil wash & scrub. Exfoliate once a week (but make sure you keep an eye to find out if this helps/hinders as it can make sensitive skin worse!). Products with tea-tree in them are often very beneficial to at least calm the redness, if not remove the spots. Proactive+ can be good!
If you’ve got sensitive skin, Simple do a wonderful range of skin care products.
Are you super stressed? That can increase acne.
Don’t pick/pop them if you can...that only spreads the infection.
If all else fails, and it’s really knocking your self confidence, visit the doctors. They can often provide creams and antibiotics to help you tackle acne. I was on a cream called Duac & a tablet called Lymecycline but there’s also accutance, the pill, oxcytetracycline, epiduo cream and many more.
Unfortunately as I said, it’s trial and error to find what YOUR skin wants. Good luck and don’t let them get you down if you can - remember everyone gets spots even if it feels like it’s just you
