Hai babes what's up it's Lara. I know I haven't written an article at all this month and I'm so sorry about that! But I promise I will try to get at least 1 or 2 articles up a week! XO Lara

The issue with acne is that the person suffering from it is desperate for any cure (your girl here x). This desperation can then blind them by making them try some ridiculous hacks which actually make their skin worse.

1. Applying toothpaste on it xo
This is a very common mistake. Many people believe that the toothpaste will dry out acne. In fact, by doing so you are not healing because you are not targeting the core reason of your acne and you will get acne again and again. In addition, toothpaste will irritate your skin and the skin around your acne. So do not waste toothpaste on this and instead, keep it for your teeth.

2. Washing your face more often xo
This advice comes from the misconception that acne is caused by dirt and poor hygiene. Acne cannot be washed away! By washing your face more often, you will dry out your skin which will make it produce more oils and clog your pores and thus your acne will get worse. You only need to wash your face in the morning and at night.

3. Popping the pimple xo
Many people think that by popping the pimple they will remove the bad stuff in the skin, this is so wrong. Pressing the skin will damage the delicate facial skin and leave you with deep scars, soooo please get your hands out of your face!

Alright love ya boss babes, mwah xx
