Overview

Acne can be caused by a hormonal increase that will stimulate your oil glands to grow and produce more oil than normal. This can in turn clog your pores and create a pimple filled with sebum. If you squeeze your pimples, you run the risk of introducing bacteria and infecting your skin, causing your pimple to become bigger and sometimes spread. If your pimple is already dry, resist your temptation to scratch off the top layer that is a scab, as it is helping your skin regenerate the affected area. Consult your dermatologist before using products on your skin if you are already under treatment for your pimples.

Step 1

Fill a large pot with filtered water and bring it to a boil, then remove from heat and place the pot on a surface that is low enough for you to bend over it while seated. Protect your surface with a towel if you think the pot may leave a burn mark, such as on wood.

Step 2

Wrap a large towel around your head in order to keep any hair from coming in contact with your face and rinse your skin with warm water to remove excess debris from your daily routine.

Step 3

Add a couple drops of tea tree essential oil to your hot water and bend over to let the steam rising from the pot hit your skin. If you want, you can use a second towel to create a tent-like effect so that the steam is enclosed and you get more of it on your skin inside the towel. The steam should never burn and if it gets too hot you can open a corner of the towel to let fresh air in. Tea tree oil has antimicrobial and antibacterial qualities that will help reduce present and future infections according to acupuncturist David Crow in his book "The Pharmacy of Flowers."

Step 4

Use a mixture of one tbsp. sea salt and one tsp. honey to create a nourishing exfoliating scrub and gently apply it with circular motions to your entire face and neck. Resist the temptation to scrub, as you want to remove your dry pimples without causing irritations that will make them bleed or become infected.

Step 5

Rinse your face off with warm water and pat dry with a soft washcloth.

Step 6

Use a non-oily moisturizer that will help your skin remain nourished and hydrated and will prevent further dryness.
