How to Get Rid of Spots at Home

Overview

Spots and skin blemishes can be an irritating cosmetic problem, and are fairly common. Spots are primarily caused by dirt, grime and skin oil clogging the skin pores, and building into spots or skin blemishes. Skin care and hygiene is essential to removing spots and skin blemishes. A range of over-the-counter skin care products are available that allow you to remove spots in the comfort of your own home. Consult a pharmacist or skin care expert before deciding to use any products, and thoroughly read all labels before use.

Step 1

Wash your facial skin twice every day. When you lay to sleep at night, oil and dirt will be allowed to seep into the skin pores, so you should thoroughly wash your face before sleeping. Wash your face after strenuous activity or after being exposed to dirt.

Step 2

Use warm water and a mild soap when washing your facial skin. Soaps are available that are specifically designed to treat acne and remove spots or skin blemishes. Warm water opens the skin pores and allows the soap to cleanse the skin deeper.

Step 3

Apply skin care products on your skin after cleansing. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends applying an over-the-counter lotion that contains benzoyl peroxide. This will decrease oil and bacteria buildup, and prevent spots from re-forming on your facial skin.

Step 4

Use over-the-counter acne products to remove spots and skin blemishes. Salicylic acid, alpha hydroxyl acids and sulfur are ngredients that you should look for, effectively remove spots and skin blemishes.

Step 5

Start with a low-strength acne product to minimize the risk of skin irritation or an adverse reaction. Recommends that you gradually increase the strength of acne products if it is required to remove spots. Increase the strength and applications over several weeks so that your skin is allowed time to adjust to the new treatments.

Step 6

Experiment with home remedies to remove spots and skin blemishes. These can be cheaper than over-the-counter acne medication. The Yoga Wiz website recommends grinding dried orange peels into natural yogurt and mixing it into a paste. Apply the paste to your facial skin and leave it on for 15 minutes, before washing off with cold water. Repeat this process three times a day.
