Before we get into that...Let’s do a quick break-down of what Acne really is.
P.S: Clogged pores that aren’t inflamed are called whiteheads and blackheads.
Cleansing and Exfoliating
It’s important to keep the skin clean by at least washing it twice a day. Exfoliating is important because it removes excess sebum, impurities and dead cells that block your pores. It’s imperative to use a cleanser that is sulfate-free and gentle so it won’t leave your skin irritated and tight.
Moisturising is a Must
For your skin regime for acne-prone skin you absolutely need a good moisturiser. A moisturiser makes sure your skin doesn’t go on overdrive and produce more sebum (oil). Make sure to hydrate your skin sufficiently with an oil-free and lightweight non comedogenic moisturiser
Skin Screams without Sunscreen
A friend you need to make your BFF. A good sunscreen goes a long way and is a must have in your daily skin care regime for acne-prone skin. The sun does a lot of damage and leads to an overproduction of oils that make acne worse! Buy an oil-free sunscreen and make it your bestie.
To take care of your acne-prone skin apart from your skin-care regime, it’s important to hydrate enough, which is a no-brainer. Make sure you eat right because what’s on the inside directly reflects on your skin. A lesser known fact is also, that if your hair isn’t taken care of then it almost always makes your skin worse.
