How to Remove Red Spots on Face

Problems with red spots on face most likely root from acne or pimple problems.

In turn, pimples are caused by non-exfoliated skin cells, excessive sebum production, and bacteria. When the dead skin on your face isn’t shedding as it should, your pores will get clogged and trap bacteria.

From there, they’ll mix with your sebum and multiply exponentially into a nasty cocktail of skin eruptions and red spots. As such, in order to get rid of those red spots on your face caused by pimples, you need to do the following tips, tricks, and recommendations to the letter.

  1. Exfoliate: The best way to get rid of your dead skin is to help with your epidermis’s natural exfoliation process. This will help reduce or outright remove red spots, acne, and the blemished skin such a removal leaves behind. You can exfoliate using enzymatic masks, chemical peels, and manual scrubs.
  2. More Facts about Manual Exfoliation: There are many exfoliant products available on the market. However, if your skin is sensitive to such brands, exfoliation means using a clean washcloth to rub all your dead skin cells away. A gentle scrub entails a liquid face wash with a spoonful of sugar.
  3. Steam open those pores: Steaming is used before any other treatment is applied. Steaming opens up the pores and lets all the dirt and grime come out. A facial steamer can be combined with essential oils for a superb way of cleansing the skin and removing any discoloration. You can either prepare it yourself by adding a few drops of essential oils to boiling water and leaning over it with your head cover with a towel, or you can get a professional facial steamer and mist for even better results.
  4. More Facts about Enzymatic Masks: If your skin still cannot take scrubbing, an enzyme mask is your best bet to a clear, red-spot-free face. Even though they’re gentle on the skin, they’re still tough on your pimples. In particular, Neutrogena has a mushroom-based enzyme mask product available.
  5. More Facts about Chemical Peels: Although expensive and requires the help of an esthetician, this is a highly effective way of removing your face’s red spots. Thankfully, there are more affordable alternatives in the form of lactic acid (which is perfect for sensitive skin and is good for hyperpigmentation), glycolic acid, and trichloracetic acid or TCA, which is what the chemical peel pros use.
  6. Using Face Creams: There are two types of fade cream: Herbal and hydroquinone (the latter is FDA approved). Hydroquinone preparations (composed of 2% hydroquinone) are readily available at your local drug store. Meanwhile, herbals contain all-natural ingredients like kojic acid, arbutin, and licorice root in order to naturally remove your red spots without you worrying too much about side effects or a topical overdose of sorts.
  7. Don’t Use Powders, Cosmetics, and Harsh Soaps: The last thing you want to do is worsen your acne in any way, shape, or form. It’s best that you take care of your sensitive skin so that you can avoid the condition or at the very least keep it from worsening. An ounce of prevention is always better than a pound of cure.
  8. Practicing Good Skincare: Removing your makeup before your sleep, washing your face every chance you get, getting oil strips to remove any facial oils, and exfoliating often using any of the above products before the onset of pimples and red spots is your best weapon against this condition.
  9. Facial cleansing system: Electric skin brushes such as Clarisonic Mia 1, Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush System on the skin and cleans the skin’s outer layer. This removes excess dirt that clogs up the pores and lets the skin “breathe.” Since red spots sometimes show in places other than the face, this cleansing system is used for legs, arms, back and anywhere else on the body.
  10. Buy a microdermabrasion machine. Those help a great deal by exfoliating the dead skin cells and rejuvenating the skin. It is a clinically proven treatment for red spots on the faec.
