Here are our 10 Dermatologist-Approved skin care tips to reduce your acne :
Wash your face twice a day and after sweating. Perspiration can make acne worse, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.
Use your fingertips to apply a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser. Avoid using a washcloth or mesh sponge because it can irritate the skin.
Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Our team recommends this line with great results
Scrubbing your skin can make acne worse, so avoid the temptation.
Rinse with lukewarm 💧.
Maintain consistency. Results are not seen in a day and patience does pay up!
Let your skin heal naturally. Picking, popping or squeezing your acne, will make your skin take longer to clear and you increase the risk of getting acne scars.
Keep your hands off your face. Touching your skin throughout the day can cause flare-ups.
Stay out of the ☀️ and tanning beds. Tanning damages you skin. In addition, some acne medications make the skin very sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, which you get from both the ☀️ and indoor tanning devices.
Consult a dermatologist if:
Your acne makes you shy or embarrassed.
The products you’ve tried have not worked.
Your acne is leaving scars or darkening your skin.
