How To Get Rid Of Bumps On Your Face

How To Get Rid Of Bumps On Your Face

 HOW TO GET RID OF BUMPS ON YOUR FACE?  We're talking about how to get rid of BUMPS on your face and we're focusing on products to use that will help reduce the bumps (and prevent them from coming back!)

How to get rid of bumps on your face?  Whether you have flesh-colored bumps, red bumps, or red bumps with pustules (a.k.a. PIMPLES), we've got you covered. Read on or watch our video below to find out how to get rid of all those annoying bumps on your face!

Let's start with flesh-colored bumps. The type of products you want to look for need to have Glycolic Acid in the ingredients. Glycolic Acid is an AHA, or "Alpha Hydroxy Acid", and it is derived from fermented sugar.

Glycolic Acid has the smallest molecules of all the acids, so it penetrates the Stratum Corneum (the top layer of your skin) QUICKLY. It is very effective in breaking down the intercellular bond or "cement" that holds the dead skin cells together. These dead skin cells build up and are what cause the flesh-colored bumps on your face.

You can find Glycolic Acid in cleansers, exfoliants, serums, lotions, creams, and even masks. Now, we don't recommend using EVERY product that has Glycolic Acid in it. If you do, you can experience irritation, scalines, flakiness, and dryness due to OVER exfoliating.

If you are exfoliating, and experiencing symptoms of flakiness, dryness, and/ scaliness, please check out the best moisturizers for your type.

Over exfoliating can result in T.E.W.L. which stands for "Trans-Epidermal Water Loss". This basically reduces your skin's ability to hold on to moisture because you are exfoliating your skin too quickly. Now you have the OPPOSITE problem.

Moving on to Salicylic Acid, it is a BHA, or "Beta Hydroxy Acid". This one is effective in loosening the build up on dead skin cells.

The AHA's eat through the dead skin cells AND the intercellular bond, the BHA's loosen the dead skin cells to make it easier for the AHA's to eat through them. So, the MOST effective products have BOTH AHA's and BHA's in them.


Our favorite product that we LOVE is the MD Dermaceutical Duo-Action Exfoliating Cleanser (long name, but it's GREAT!)

**This company is NOT sponsoring our video. This is a product we actually carry, sell to our clients, and use ourselves. This is based on personal experience and feedback from clients who also love it.**

It says "Duo-Action" but the reason we LOVE it is because it actually has the TRIPLE acids: Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, AND Lactic Acid. Lactic Acid is derived from fermented milk and is a more gentle form of an AHA.

Because this cleanser has ALL three acids, it's very effective in addressing flesh-colored bumps, red bumps, and red bumps with pus. But ANOTHER reason we love this cleanser is it doesn't just address Acne. It also addresses fine lines and wrinkles, and lightening and brightening dark spots! TRIPLE acids and TRIPLE treatments!

You cannot purchase it over-the-counter or in your local drugstore or beauty store. You need to purchase it from a licensed Esthetician. (If you can't find anyone local who sells it, you can try to find an Esthetician who will sell it and ship it to you, which is an option will will be launching soon!) 

You may also considering purchasing this cleanser if you have Grade 1 or Grade 2 acne or have oily skin:

This cleanser is sold on Amazon and it is a gel cleanser that smells slightly of Tea Tree oil and mint.  Not so much of the mint scent.  It contains only the BHA which is great for pimples and oily skin.

Now, here are some ingredients you want to AVOID in your skincare products because they can be "comedogenic" or clog the pores and actually INCREASE the amount of bumps on your face:

- Mineral Oil, Petroleum, Petrolatum, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Iodine, Algae, Cocoa Butter, Talc, Lanolin, and LAKES (which can be very irritating to your skin and can be found in many highly pigmented eyeshadows, blush, and even some foundations).

There's an array of ingredients that can be comedogenic, but we have found these to be the worst offenders for most people.

So, there you have it! When looking for products to reduce the amount of bumps on your face and help keep them from coming back, look for ones that include Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and Lactic Acid in the ingredients, and AVOID the list of comedogenic ingredients above.
