Acne pimples can be a pain to deal with, especially if you are a teenager.  Acne can be embarrassing and can lower ones self esteem.  As a teenager, many boys and girls think less of themselves when they have acne.  Luckily, there are ways to get rid of acne pimples.

HygieneCredit: Morgue FileHaving proper hygiene is very important.  It is a good habit to wash your face in the morning and right before you go to bed to get the dirt and unnecessary oils off of your face.  People who don’t wash their face are prone to getting acne pimples.  Buying the right face wash is important to clear your acne as well.  There are many different ingredients in various face washes and what brand works for one person may not work the same for others, especially people with allergies.  Organic and natural face washes are great because there aren’t any chemicals that you might be allergic to.

Some people avoid moisturizers because it tends to make their face feel more oily.  In all reality you will need some type of moisturizer to help get rid of acne pimples because when you wash your face you are stripping your skin of the natural oils it needs.  Although lotion may not be the best bet for your acne pimples, coconut oil is a very good choice.  Coconut oil is 100% USDA organic and works great as your moisturizer for both the morning and night.

Oatmeal MasksCredit: Morgue FileMake your own oatmeal masks to get rid of acne pimples.  To do this all you need to do is mix some oatmeal in warm water so the mixture turns pasty.  This will make it easy to smear on your face.  Once your face is coated with this oatmeal mixture, leave it on for 10-15 minutes or until it starts to dry.  This will reduce the inflammation you may have due to your acne and will get you cleared up in no time.

Orange PeelsCredit: MorgueFileOranges are so acidic and will work to zap your acne pimples out of your skin.  Rub an orange peel on your face to see this natural remedy work on your face.  Some people prefer to wet their face first so the acid on the peel isn’t as strong.


Watching what you eat is just another way to get rid of acne pimples.  When you are filling your body with junk food such as too much sugar that is very harmful and your face may tend to break out.  You will notice when you eat more fruits and vegetables and drink water, your face will clear up.  Also, fried foods and chips are not good for your skin.  That oil builds up and will cause acne.

If you are still unable to get rid of acne pimples at home by yourself, it is a good idea to set up an appointment with a dermatologist.  Dermatologists specialize in skin care and will give you some tips and methods you can try at home.  They may even prescribe you a medication in which you can either apply directly onto the skin or you can take orally to get rid of acne pimples.
