Pimples, or the scientific name, acne, is a problem that almost any teenager faces at some point. While it isn’t life threatening in any way, it is a quite bad looking and when you are a teenager, the most important things in your life are looking good and having a very expensive mobile phone. Now, we can’t help with the second problem, but we can help you by teaching you how to get rid of pimples.

Acne or pimples are caused by the increase in a hormone in your body. This hormone is created by all teenage bodies and it doesn’t mean there is something wrong with your body, it just means that you have it puberty. However, more than 70 percent of teenagers have the type of skin that reacts to this hormone and you get pimples.

The first thing that you have to know is that if your pimples are big, red and they hurt a bit when you touch them, leave them alone. It will leave a pretty bad mark if you squeeze one that no doctor can make better. You can use a special cream that dries the pimples and cures them normally or you can see a doctor and have something else recommended that does the same thing.

On the other hand, if the tip of your pimples is yellow, you can squeeze them without any worries. However, you will need to wash your hands properly before you do that and be careful about not squeezing too hard. You should have no issues and the pimples will be cured completely in a matter of weeks. The red pimples will surely develop into the yellow ones, you just need a bit of time and patience.

There are a couple of creams that you might want to try fro your local health store, but beware, they come with a strength rating. The idea is to try the lowest strength one first and see how that works. It might just be enough. Going for the strongest one first might leave your face clean from pimples but very dry and very fragile.

One of the treatment methods that works for everyone is getting some natural sun. Your doctor will recommend this, but make sure that you are not going to get sun burn. Use protective cream and spend no more than 45 minutes sun bathing every day for a week. Your skin regenerates pretty quickly, but in order to accelerate the process, you can use this method and get rid of pimples once and for all.

All you really need to do is be patient and follow the doctor’s orders. It won’t be a very difficult process and it surely won’t take too long either. If you do what the doctor recommends you will certainly get rid of pimples sooner rather than later. Remember not to squeeze or scratch them and also remember that it is important to not overdo anything related to the treatment.
