Before we talk about the ways to treat zits that let’s get to know what causes them first.

  • They are generally caused by the presence of sebum which is released by the sebaceous glands of the skin.  This can be due to the elevated level of androgenic hormones.  This is common during puberty.  Sebum can clog the skin pores and causes the bacteria of the skin to get trapped inside the pores.  This leads to the inflammation and build up of painful zits under the skin.
  • They can also be caused by insufficient intake of fatty acids.
  • The formation of zits below skin can also be triggered by stress.


  • Use a non-comedogenic antibacterial cleanser to cleanse the skin.  Do it twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.  This is to prevent build up of dirt, bacteria, oil, debris, and makeup that can cause to the formation of zits or cystic acne, one of the serious types of acne.
  • Apply toner to maintain the chemical balance of the skin.  Using toner prevents oil production.
  • Place a hot compress on your zits.  The warmth will draw flow out that helps extract the zits or pimples.  The hot compress can also reduce swelling.
  • Use acne treatment cream to the pimples.  Choose one with benzoyl peroxide.
  • If you want natural remedies you can have honey applied on the area to reduce infection.  Baking soda paste can also be used to treat pimples.
