The biggest advice that we could give to acne-prone skin irrespective of the number of breakouts is to always keep a simple yet effective skincare routine. The effectiveness of your skincare does not depend on the number of products you use but what ingredients those products have.
So, the feed will guide you to build a simple and effective skincare routine that will purge the skin’s inflammation and breakouts to a great extent. Stay Tuned!
It’s really important to cleanse your face. That’s probably what helps to get rid of dirt, grime, and bacteria. We think cleansers are the foremost and the most crucial step of your skincare therefore you should choose the cleanser strictly as per your skin.
When you’re choosing a cleanser for acne-prone skin always look for a gel or water-based formulation that is infused with ingredients that help to fight acne-causing bacteria and also controls the sebum production. Salicylic acid cleansers work as a magic for acne-prone skin, so do give it a shot.
Again a very crucial step for acne-prone skin! But, we would like to revamp the step a bit. Rather than daily using a toner, incorporate a chemical exfoliated toner and that you have to use once a day three times a week and not more than that. Why we are suggesting a chemical exfoliated toner is because unlike the normal toner it works in two ways: going to the deep layers of the skin and removing the dead skin cells. Also, if you have larger pores using chemical exfoliated toners will help in shrinking those large pores. And, your daily application is limited to only three times a week. So, that means fewer efforts!
Now, if you have acne-prone skin, you always have thought of giving a skip to serums, right?
But, incorporating Niacinamide in your skincare in the form of serum can do wonders for your skin. Not only Niacinamide helps to control the sebum production and breakouts but it also helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier. A strong skin barrier is really important to keep your skin healthy and free from various skin issues. Even if you have sensitive skin you can still use Niacinamide as it’s safe for sensitive skin too.
Many of you suffering from acne-prone skin have thought of giving moisturizer a pass. But, even if you have acne-prone skin you can’t ignore the importance of applying moisturizer to your skin.
Apply a less amount of moisturizer as you don’t want too much layering and always opt for a gel-based light moisturizer so that your skin doesn’t feel the burden of too many products.
Weekly Chemical Exfoliation
If you have acne-prone skin you must have faced a lot of confusion in the exfoliation process. Since physical exfoliation can be a bit too harsh on your skin we would recommend you opt for chemical exfoliation. It’s known to be the best way to get rid of dead skin cells without the harsh scrubbing of your skin.
The chemical exfoliation uses active acids that not only work on the upper layer of the skin but also work beneath. Make sure if you opt for chemical exfolaiton try not to use it more than once a week. Over-exfoliation can dry out your skin resulting in more sebum production.
