Having acne on your mouth can be really annoying, especially considering how long it can take to get rid of it.
However, if you don’t do anything about it, you might have it for a very, very long time, which is also not an option.
What makes acne so bothersome is just the simple fact that it takes time. Weeks, months of constant testing. And some people, will still after trying all of this, undoubtedly report zero results. Does this mean this list is bad?
Not at all, these are the simplest treatments that also give the highest chance of success. Just keep in mind that you might need to test a few more ingredients and read our other recommendations before you find the treatment that works for you.
1. Wash Your Hands
Did you know that while mostly subconsciously, we touch our faces hundreds of times per day? The same goes for your mouth, either when you are nervous, or bored, or are just pondering life’s mysteries while your hand rests around your mouth.
And have you ever wondered what else do you touch during your daily routine?
Germs, dust, bacteria, and so on. And if you don’t wash your hands often enough while touching your face, bingo.
Acne is on it’s way! So wash your hands and wash them real good.
2. Say NO to lipstick and balms
The most used products to apply a foreign ingredient to your lips are.. lipsticks and balms!
On the surface, lipsticks seem harmless and you are right, they are rather harmless by themselves. However, it is rather easy for bacteria to get comfortable on it, so by applying it, you might just be giving yourself a fresh dose of acne, every single day.
And while this is rare, even if the lipstick is new, fresh, clean, you might still get acne from it. Not from the bacteria, but from the ingredients in the lipstick itself.
So choose your lipstick and balms carefully, preferably stop using them for a few weeks, just so you can figure out if it’s the culprit for your acne issue.
3. Food Makes All The Difference
If you are a human being and not in a hospital chair, you always eat through your mouth.
So your mouth is pretty much in daily contact with certain foods. Milk, bread, meat, vegetables and so on. In many cases, there are chemicals in the food called halogens.
These chemicals are usually the culprit for food related acne outbreaks. What can be done here is to slowly, one food at a time, change your diet. For example, try not drinking milk for a month / few weeks.
If the acne persists, the milk is not the culprit and you can keep drinking it without any fear. Do the same for a few well known foods that tend to cause acne.
4. That Little Toothpaste
If you like your teeth, you probably brush your teeth at least once per day.
While doing so, it’s impossible not to get some of the paste on your mouth.
The ingredients of the paste come in contact with your mouth and voila, if your glands don’t like it, acne outbreak is on it’s way!
The treatment for this is straightforward. While you shouldn’t stop brushing your teeth, you can however try another brand of toothbrush, preferably by first confirming that the ingredients aren’t the same and then seeing if the acne improves over a few weeks.
5. Keep Trying And Trying And Trying And Trying
Some people give up after trying one recommendation, saying that they’ve had it and that they are cursed to live with acne their whole life.
This is not the way to go if you want acne out of your life.
It may take weeks or even months to successfully pinpoint the cause of your acne outbreaks, but once you figure it out, removing any acne will become a piece of cake.
It will be like the moment when you first figured out how to ride a bike. Glorious and satisfying, knowing that all that time invested and bruises rendered were worth it in the end.
6. Use Acne Removal Products
While reviews on these products are really useful before buying, especially if you are looking for the best value for your money, it all again boils down to testing.
- What you need to do to make it work, is order it, try it for a few weeks and see the results for yourself.
It helps to read the reviews first though, as there is usually a general consensus of whether a product is even worth considering since a bad product will always be a bad product no matter what “magical” ingredients it claims to have that helps against acne.
