Acne: How do I get rid of my acne?

Acne is a condition of the skin that occurs when hair follicles plug-in oil and dead skin cells. Let’s talk about acne treatment and how I get rid of acne.

You have a good skincare regime and a good lifestyle to become acne free.

Many of us aren’t new to acne, some of us have experienced at one time or the other. Only a few escaped acne and pimple, they only see and hear from other sufferers. If you are among the lucky few, I say congratulations to you.

You can never tell the feeling that comes with low self-esteem, an ugly face with those big or tiny zits scattered around the face.

What is acne?


Acne is what it is, a skin condition that clogs your hair follicles which are your pores, from too many sebum secretions from the sebaceous glands reacting with unhealthy bacteria that fest on your skin, to produce those good feed boils such as a papule, cyst, blackheads, whiteheads, etc.

Puberty stage

During the adolescent stage, we are less concerned because we see acne as one of those changes that come with puberty.

Some persons are lucky after their adolescence period they become acne-free while others even after puberty still struggle with acne.

I’m one of those who struggled with severe acne before now.


I started developing acne when I was eleven during my college years in junior secondary school. As years go by I graduated from college 4 years later and my acne instead of disappearing became worse.

I lost it completely, my self-confidence was gone. I was worried, my parents were worried, same with my close relatives, family friends, and friends.

I remembered my teacher sent for me one of those days and when I got to his office, he was asking me what measures have I taken to treat my face.

According to him, he said, your face is spoiling and I feel worried for you, try and do something about it. I said ‘okay’ I nodded my head and said yes sir and I left. Surprised? Yea, it was that bad.

I graduated from a tertiary institution, still struggling with acne it wasn’t funny at all.

This is almost 15 years of my life battling with severe acne and breakout every week.

Acne treatment

My acne treatment revolves around topical products over the counter, Diys, oral medications, and a dirty skincare routine like using an early morning pee-pee to wash my face.

Lolz! someone swears by it and she told me it working and I just want out from my ordeal, I succumbed to it and I did that for almost a month.

Did it work I know that the next question on your mind? It crazy you know but it never worked for me.


I had a bag for acne treatment back then for my face care as one would have a cupboard for stocking up toiletries or make-ups.

I still remember this bag so well it was a pinkish white bag – midi size. My impatience with varieties acne treatments offered or recommended for me was like a trial and error as I kept using, dumping, and jumping from one product to another.

Too many products are not good for you

My problem then was I listened to so many people recommending products for me. Some of those products bleach me, some worsened my acne and others didn’t work.

The few that worked were short-lived and after abuse of the product, the effectiveness ceased. Hahahahaha

Over the counter product experience

I still remembered a product called STINGO CLEANSER that product was actually a water-based cleanser, too peppery.

I have no idea why it is so hot like pepper (atarodo) but believe me, that is the best description I can relate to right now.

I applied a cotton pad on my washed face but I have to summon the courage to use it every morning.

It actually worked on my acne, especially for my dark spot.

Now I’m knowledgeable about skincare and I wished I can get that product handy so I can research more about its composition and why it is that peppery. Almost like pepper spray!


In a bid to get justice for my skin and restore my lost confidence I began to search and research for a permanent acne treatment product, and I became more knowledgeable on personal skincare routine and the safety of natural skincare products such as ayurvedic, DIYS, and holistic care for the skin.

Here are my secret to acne-free skin;

  • Wash your face twice daily with a mild face wash with active like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
  • Get a separate face towel for face use only and ensure you are clean always.
  • Change your pillow covers twice weekly so those bacteria don’t stock up on those sheets that can get back on your face.
  • Detoxify your body inside out maybe on a weekly basis or if you can do this daily. We have rich purifying herbal teas like turmeric and lemon, celery smoothie, green tea and lime, ginger tea, dandelion tea, etc.
  • Get a face clay mask and use it once or twice weekly.
  • Steam your face occasionally to open up your pores and seal up with pure honey after 30 minutes you wash off.
  • Do facial oil cleansing. They say oil dissolves oil, this is the best cleansing measure for oily and acne-prone skin.
  • Avoid chemically formulated harsh skincare products so you don’t hurt or worsen your skin.
  • Apply face toners with AHAs /BHA, apply to brighten face serums with actives such as vitamin C and niacinamide.
  • Invest in a good face moisturizer that is lightweight, you don’t want anything that will clog your pores.
  • Avoid heavy makeup and ensure you wash it off before retiring to bed.
  • Drink plenty of water first thing in the morning before you eat.
  • Stay away from dairy foods and sugars
  • Invest in good dietary supplements, such as vitamin C, Zinc, omega 3 fish oil, etc,
  • Eat fresh fruits, it goes a long way.
  • Your skin will thank you for this and you’ll be fine.
