You are so annoyed with the presence of acne all over your face. You have been the center of ridicule because of the presence of acne. It really affects your confidence and self esteem. You have tried almost all there is to be tried but it’s just not working as fast as you imagined. There are times that you are just left with one option which is to take matters in your own hands and getting rid of your acne your own way. You look in front of the mirror and strategically place your hands on the biggest bump for immediate popping. On second thought, you chose not to pop your acne because it may do more damage. What can you then do to resist the temptation of popping your acne? Sometimes, it is just too difficult to resist because you want to get rid of it the fastest way possible! Here are tips you can do to resist the urge of popping.
1. Always think that popping will definitely do more good than bad. You have to change your mindset that it will go away after popping. That’s wrong! It will bleed and will be open. Bacteria and other factors may come inside the open wound and have it infected. You are not trained like the dermatologists. Your hands might even be dirty. It’s just not a good idea.
2. Do not touch your face. Always think that your hand is the dirtiest part of your body. Having that psyche would make you extra careful for your hands not to go anywhere near your face. It is also true. Our hands are the most exposed. Money, cellular phone, hand rails, door knobs- these are all haven for bacteria. If you don’t wash your hands that often it will be a breeding ground for bacteria and others that will worsen your acne. So again, do not touch your face with your hands.
3. Lastly and this might actually work is not to look at yourself too much in front of the mirror. The more you stare at yourself the more you will notice the acne. When you don’t see your acne, you might even pay less attention to it. Look at yourself when combing your hair or brushing teeth or applying make up. Don’t give yourself the opportunity to notice the acne.
