Acne-Prone Skincare Routine

What is acne-prone skin?

Acne-prone skin is skin that is more susceptible to developing acne that can appear in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and cysts. This condition is characterized by excess oil production, clogged pores, inflammation, and bacterial growth on the skin’s surface. Factors like genetics, hormonal changes, diet, stress, and skincare products can contribute to acne-prone skin.

 

How to care for acne-prone skin

  1. Gentle cleansing. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleanser twice daily to remove excess oil, dirt, and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
  1. Prevent clogged pores. Choose skincare and makeup products that are non-comedogenic, as in they won’t clog pores. 
  1. Avoid harsh ingredients. Stay away from ingredients such as alcohol, fragrances and sulphates, as they can irritate the skin causing more acne.
  1. Keep it hydrated. Even oily skin needs hydration. Opt for a lighter moisturizer packed with water based hydrating ingredients. Also drink lots of water.
  1. Keep hands off. Avoid popping, squeezing or picking acne, as this can worsen inflammation, spread bacteria, and increase risk of scarring.
  1. Healthy lifestyle. Maintain a balanced diet, stay hydrated, manage stress levels and get enough sleep. All of these factors can influence skin health and an imbalance leads to acne flare-ups.
