How to get rid of tiny bumps on face?

By Sia Fung | May 3, 2019 Have you been wondering what are those small colourless bumps on your face? The ones that live on your forehead, cheeks, nose or chin and never seem to pop away? In medical term, they are called as subclinical acne. This type of acne can cause the skin’s surface to look and feel uneven, without ever developing into pimple which is pus-filled and inflamed. Rather, subclinical acne is simply congested, clogged pores. Subclinical acne These little bumps are caused by the excess secretion of sebum from your sebaceous glands. When there is too much of this waxy, oily substance, dirt and dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, your pores become clogged, resulting in protruding follicles and a bumpy texture. However, the cause of subclinical acne may also be related to your lifestyle, stress level or hormonal changes. No matter how, there are ways of treating this type of acne, naturally.

How to get rid of tiny bumps on face?

1. Set your cleansing game Improve in your cleansing techniques is the must to get rid of this problem since we know that subclinical acne is caused by clogged pores. First off, look at what cleanser you’re using. The best type of cleanser to use, especially for getting rid of subclinical acne, is an oil-based cleanser e.g. facial cleansing oil. Oil dissolves oil, making it an essential component of unclogging your oil-filled pores! Foaming or soap-based cleansers can be drying to the skin, which can actually lead to more oil production, as your body will try to compensate for what you’re stripping away! Very often, even after washing your face, your skin is still covered in a layer of dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities! Therefore, another technique to utilize is ‘double cleansing’. This may seem counterintuitive, especially if you’re used to drying cleansers. But double cleansing with an oil cleanser can make a huge difference for your skin! Think of the first round of cleansing as prepping your skin for the deeper cleanse. Gently, but thoroughly, cleansing your skin twice will help to clear pores, remove dead skin cells, and relieve your skin of all impurities.  Do a double cleanse only once a day — and we prefer to do this at night, when your skin really needs it after a day of makeup, dirt, and pollutants! 2. Start your toning habit You may not know that toning is essential for finishing the cleansing process! On top of helping to extract any leftover oil and dirt left on your face, using a toner helps to balance your pH levels, which can help decrease excess oil production. If you’re struggling with subclinical acne, that means that your pores are filled with excess oil. For you, it’s probably best to use a toner that has a lower pH level e.g. pH 5.5 and with anti-inflammatory properties so you can restore your healthy acid mantle. 3. Choose the right moisturizer After cleansing and toning your face, remember to put on your moisturizer! As mention before, if the skin is dehydrated, the dryness-counter effect by your skin will cause more oil to secrete. Thus, try the light weighted moisturizer to hydrate your skin! 4. If they’re still not gone – check your diet No doubt, diet affects your skin – and for subclinical acne, that can be true too! If you are taking all of the right steps to treat your skin on the surface, and still aren’t seeing results, the issue may be in your gut. Certain foods, like soy and dairy, can cause your hormones to fluctuate, leading to an imbalance that can cause excess oil production, aka, blemishes. Refined sugar and processed carbs are also a no-go, as they cause inflammation in the body, which also stimulates excess oil production. We know it’s difficult, but our recommendation is to steer clear of gluten, sugar, and dairy…especially when you’re dealing with stubborn subclinical acne! Load your diet up with leafy green veggies, fibrous non-grain foods, and zinc-rich foods like pumpkin seeds! 5. Drink a ton of water Drinking enough water is essential for keeping your skin clear! Our cells are nourished and hydrated by water, and dehydration could lead to the appearance of acne and blemishes. Double certified MD, Dr. Amy Shah, told us recently that she recommends drinking between 10-14 glasses of water a day! For some extra flavor and benefits, try adding lemon or other fruit to your water! 6. Don’t pick As tempting as it is to try and pop these annoying blemishes, avoid picking at all costs. This is especially important for subclinical acne, which does not normally break the skin on its own, as the bumps are often not pus-filled, but, again, are just congested pores. Picking at them could lead to inflammation and scarring, and can cause the acne to SPREAD, as you can spread and introduce bacteria to your inflamed blemishes. The best bet is to let your skin naturally regenerate to flush out the congestion. We hope that this post helped clear up the mystery around those pesky colourless bumps – and that it will also help clear up your skin! The key factor in treating subclinical acne is to keep your pores clear – through your routine, lifestyle habits, and diet.
