ACNE REMOVAL SECRETS! — Skin Care Tips That Are Making Pimples Worse | Doctor ER

What if I told you that your shampoo may  be the culprit of your acne breakouts? Let me explain. (music) Face breaking out? Suffering from maskne? What if I told you that your shampoo  may be the cause of your acne breakouts? Yep, today we are talking all about acne.

You’ve tried every cream, lotion, and  potion and you’ve spent hundreds of   dollars on facials and practically  live at the dermatologist’s office. But those stubborn breakouts just won’t go away.

Today, I’m here to share with you six major  things that you are probably doing wrong. Yep, these six things are probably preventing you   from achieving that clear  complexion once and for all.

Not to worry, today I’m going  over your acne treatment mistakes. Hey everyone, I’m Dr. Jordan Wagner. I’m an emergency room doctor who treats everything   from COVID to gunshot wounds  and burns, you name it.

I’ve created this video series to help  answer some of your medical questions   and the questions I get from  patients each and every day. If you find this video helpful,  please do me a favor and subscribe.

Alright, here we go. Let’s talk about the six things that  could be causing your breakouts. Number one: You try a new acne product every week. For starters, this approach can irritate your  skin, which can then in turn cause breakouts.

Also, washing your face throughout the day can  irritate your skin and cause acne breakouts. Once you start a new acne product,  give that acne treatment time to work. You want to use a product for six to eight weeks  unless you’re having some sort of crazy reaction.

It takes about six to eight weeks to see some   improvement in your complexion  when starting a new regiment. If you don’t see any improvement by  then, you can then try another product. Keep in mind, complete clearing  generally takes three to four months.

Number two: Spot treating acne. It makes sense to treat what you see, but  this approach fails to prevent new breakouts. To prevent new blemishes, spread a  thin layer of acne medication evenly   over your entire acne-prone skin.

So for instance, if you tend  to break out on your forehead,   try applying the acne treatment  to that one specific area. Not just a single spot, and also not just  once it’s erupted. Prevention is key.

Number three: Using products  that aren’t non-comedogenic. Huh? Has it ever occurred to you that your shampoo  might actually be causing you to breakout? Yes. Along with skin care products  and makeup, hair care products,   contain oil or other ingredients that  can cause acne breakouts as well.

Try to opt for hair-care products that are  labeled non-comedogenic meaning won’t clog pores. These are your safest bet. Also quick side note, the term oil-free  does not mean it doesn’t clog pores   but just indicates that the formula is lighter.

Number four acne treatment  mistake: Sleeping in your makeup. I don’t care how much the label on  your makeup promises that It won’t   break you out or it’s oil-free, etc etc. Even non-comedogenic or “won’t clog pores”  claiming makeup can cause acne if you sleep in it.

Regardless of how tired or buzzed, you might  be, make every effort to remove your makeup. I mean the least you can do is run a makeup  remover wipe over your face before hitting   the pillow. It’s better than nothing and  your skin will thank you in the morning.

Number five: Scrubbing the acne away. Yes, we’ve all seen them before. They look so tempting, don’t they? You think oh I’ll just scrub  the dirt right out of my face. Maybe you even have it in your bathroom right now.

Those electronic scrubbing brushes, face  scrubs, any of those exfoliating devices. Not a big fan. Scrubbing can irritate your skin,   causing acne to flare and can possibly  even drive bacteria further into your skin.

Be gentle when washing your face and   other skin that has acne. You want to  use a mild, non-comedogenic cleanser. Apply the cleanser lightly with your  fingertips, using a circular motion,   then rinse it off with warm water.

Number six: Popping, squeezing,  or picking at your breakouts. When you pop or squeeze acne, you’re  likely to push some of what’s inside, pus,   dead skin cells, or bacteria,  deeper into your skin.

Also, you’re just adding more bacteria to   your skin by touching your face  with probably unwashed hands. When you pick at your face,  you increase inflammation. This can lead to more-noticeable  acne and sometimes scarring and pain.

Many people can control their acne  by following these skin care tips   and using an acne treatment that they  can easily buy without a prescription. However, if you continue to see acne  after giving these tips a chance to work,   a dermatologist can certainly  help guide you even more.

As some people do need  prescription-strength acne treatment. With the right help and skin awareness, virtually  everyone who has acne can achieve clearer skin. All right, that’s been a quick acne-busting  breakdown with me, Doctor Wagner.
