How To Get Rid of Acne Fast?

Zits are a part of life that includes junk food, oily food, stressed lifestyle, minimal work out and exposure to bad weather conditions for a skin. Most of the acne sufferers have pimples or zits and often end up wondering if there are any true remedies that actually work and not only work but work quickly.

There are many questions asked about the quick remedies but one cannot answer as everyone has a different lifestyle. Everyone is different in terms of:

  • How much water do you drink on a daily basis?
  • How old are you?
  • Do you have an impaired immune system?
  • What type of acne are you experiencing?
  • Are you taking certain medication?
  • Do you have food or environmental allergies?
  • What kind of diet do you follow
  • Are you in good shape?
  • Where does the acne occur?

All of these questions need to be considered when you are contemplating to get rid of acne. It is best to see a qualified dermatologist for acne; however, here’s a list of certain natural and quick remedies that can also help out on those odd days:


Don’t touch:

First rule with zits and much so tough to follow through because when we get pimples, we tend to touch and retouch (this goes again and again right? We understand the struggle). However, if you’re poking and prodding your acne, it’s going to look ten times worse than it did before, so just stop it at once. The picking on your zits isn’t going to help you and make your face look even worse. It will be much easier to cover with mineral powder if there isn’t a big scab, wound, or too much hyper-pigmentation from squeezing to cover up.


The best way to reduce the intensity of pimples is to go for detoxification. Whether it is prom, a date or family get-together. Detox. The question is how will you do it? You can start 5 days before your special event. Drink a big glass of lime water mixed with basil leaves and honey twice a day to flush out your toxins. If you don’t end up having a bowel movement within the hour of drinking lemon water, then drink another glass, it will help fasten the things a bit. Being dehydrated could cause acne due to constipation, so increase the intake of your water.

Another remedy is to eat as clean food as you wish. Eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can. If you feel like you cannot stuff yourself too much try juicing. This will increase your hydration process and reduce the inflammation process, will boost your immunity and help get rid of acne. If your intake on milk and cheese is too much, try and cut back because optimum digestion is important, they increase inflammation, leading to pimples.
