No one likes those unsightly blemishes that just happen sometimes. Almost everyone gets them and they always seem to come on at the most inconvenient times. How do you deal with those unfortunate happenings, especially when they're unexpected and you have a date that night? Is there a surefire way to rid yourself of blemishes? Alas there may not be a way to completely eradicate future possibilities of blemishes, but you can take action now and better control what blemishes you have now and also prevent bad breakouts.

One of the first steps in getting rid of and preventing blemishes is to evaluate your skin type. Do you have oily skin? Do you have dry skin? Do you have sensitive skin? All these are good questions to ask and answer for yourself, because once you can answer those you'll be in a prime spot for bringing your skin and blemishes under control. You need to find a good skin care regime that fits your particular skin type. For more oily skin complexions choose something that's a little heavier. Find a wash that exfoliates your skin so the oil from your skin doesn't clog your pores and trap dirt (which inevitably leads to blemishes). If you skin is a bit more sensitive, don't try anything too drying, but something more gentle that still gets the job done.

Once you have basic skin care under your belt, then you can hone in on specific skin blemishes. Most skin care lines have a blemish spot treatment that is often effective at ridding yourself of those blemishes. With these treatments however, you'll have to do some trial and error kinds of tests. If you're dedicated to a specific skin line, try their spot treatment first because it's most likely theirs will fall in line with what your skin is already used to.

When getting rid of blemishes, remember that however much you may want to, you shouldn't pick at them. This will most likely inflame the blemish, make it last longer, and perhaps leave a scar. Remember that some people's skin is more prone to breakouts than others' and that treatment for skin problems is completely subjective. Even if you have a harder time ridding yourself of blemishes it is possible and remember that will patience and a good skin care routine, you can have great skin!
