First of all, a few pimples here and there aren’t considered “acne,” Proactiv provides a better definition. That being said, I want to let you all know that there’s nothing wrong with little red, pink, or white bumps here and there, most people don’t even realize them. People won’t judge you or laugh at you behind your back because of a few pimples, and if they do, they’re rude and irrelevant.
Once you accept that a few pimples won’t make or break you, it’s time to STOP PICKING AT THEM! I know that’s easier said than done, but trust me picking at your pimples is making them look worse and last longer.
There’s plenty of products made to deal with pimples, but in my experience natural products are by far the best choice. Below I’ve listed what’s worked best for me.
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E Lotion
- Jojoba Oil (As a moisturizer, primer, and/or mixed with vitamin E lotion)
- Tea Tree Oil (Spot treatment)
- Sunblock! Exposure to sun can actually promote and worsen scarring, find a sunblock that won’t clog your pores. Vitamin C Glow-Protect Lotion works perfect for me!
All these can be purchased on Amazon for less than $20 each!
