Dealing with acne at any age is an uphill battle, and finding skincare for acne-prone skin makes it feel even more difficult. With different types of acne, it can be hard to perfect a skin care routine that can help you solve more than just one type of spot on your skin. That’s why it’s key to find products that can get to the root of your acne and come up with solutions to clear it up!
After the endless search of finding the right formulations, here are a few recommendations to help you get your skincare routine back on track:
- Gentle yet effective cleansers
Foaming cleansers are made for oily and acne-prone skin. Their light texture helps penetrate deep into the skin for a more thorough cleanse. Look for a facial cleanser with salicylic acid as your go-to ingredient. It helps eliminate bacteria that cause acne on your skin and heals it over time. Since it can be a bit drying for people with normal skin, look for hydrating ingredients in the formulation. Hyaluronic acids or probiotics are a few that calm the skin but won’t clog your pores.
Clogged pores can be tough to treat, that’s why they are most responsive to regular exfoliation. While physical exfoliators such as sugar and coffee are scrubbed on the skin’s surface, they could cause more damage. Opt for chemical exfoliators like glycolic acid in your skin care routine that carries out the same process but on a microscopic level, by increasing cell turnover and clearing those pores for smoother and healthier skin.
P.S: If you’re new to the world of exfoliation, start by using them once a week at night. After your skin gets used to it, you can increase the use to twice a week.
You may have the oiliest skin on the planet, but you still need to use a moisturizer—especially if you use acne-clearing products! Formulas with salicylic acid and glycolic acid are drying in nature to get rid of the excess sebum that causes acne. This can leave the skin sensitive to the environment and needs help in protecting its natural skin barrier. Gel-based moisturizers are light in texture and good for acne-prone skin. Your skin care routine will be incomplete without one!
Once in a while, your skin needs a boost to unclog stubborn clogs and deep clean the skin. To kickstart the treatment for these hard-to-treat spots, masks with clay and charcoal perform well to sop up all that gunk that lingers on the skin’s surface. Sit back and relax, as the mask does all the work in your skin care routine.
- Pimple or acne patches
Spot treatment is essential for acne-prone skin. They’re great for protecting acne breakouts with hydrocolloid and help accelerate the healing process. Plus, less picking on the spot leads to lesser marks, leaving behind healed and healthy skin. They’re the best product to have, whether you’re longing at home or on the move.
