Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics and I'm going to give you some tips on how you can cure pimples. The easiest thing to remember is you can use acne as an acronym. You want to use anti-bacterial products. You want to control the oil. You want to use non-irritating products and you want to make sure your skin is exfoliated. Somebody who's more acne prone actually produces up to four times the amount of dead skin as somebody with normal skin, so you'd want to really make sure that you're exfoliating, keeping those pores really nice and clean. Biggest thing that you want to make sure you do is keep your face really nice and clean. You can use a cleanser such as this one. This is a salicylic based acne cleanser. It's going to help to exfoliate. It's going to help to keep those pores really nice and clean. You can also get one that's anti-bacterial if you want maybe a, more of a gentle cleanser, but you can get something with anti-bacterial properties to it to help to kill and get rid of any of that bacteria sitting on the skin. Next thing you want to do if you tend to be a little bit more on the oily side, you want to make sure that you're controlling that oil by using some controlling products that have maybe silica in it or something, oil absorber or something like that. You also want to make sure you're not using anything too irritating. What can happen a lot of times with acne is if you use a lot stripping products and you overstrip the skin, you can actually basically strip all the natural oils out of the skin. It tricks your skin into thinking it's dry, so in turn, it produces more oil which can actually lead to more clogging and more breakout, so you want to make sure you're using non-irritating products. Nothing that's too harsh and you want to make sure you're balancing your acne regimen with a good hydrator. And lastly, you want to make sure you're exfoliating. You don't want to necessarily use too much of a scrubbing product. You don't know, ever want to scrub over an open blemish. That can actually end up, first of all irritating it causing scaring and maybe brea...spreading the bacteria to other portions of the face. So, something that like salicylic acid is a really good exfoliant for acne and that'll help to keep the pores really nice and clean. So those are some tips that you can use to cure acne.
