Oily, combination, and acne prone skin types benefit from constant and consistent daily skin care. Controlling acne requires proper treatment and there are certain dos and don’ts. Furthermore, limiting aggravation to the skin is a must in your daily skin care routine, so it is necessary to understand the importance of following certain guidelines.
Acne outbreak occurrences are mainly the result of clogged pores, excess natural skin oil (sebum) production, and hereditary factors. Words like “comedo, papule, nodule, pustule and cysts” are used to describe acne and these developments can be upsetting and disfiguring if proper daily skin care is not implemented.
Here are some daily skin care guidelines to help you reduce acne:
Cleanse not more than twice daily. Gently cleanse the affected area with non-abrasive, alcohol-free cleansers. Do avoid harsh scrubbing. Instead, gently apply the cleanser with your fingertips and then rinse with lukewarm water. Dab your face dry with a soft towel.
Be careful to avoid acne skin care taboos. Astringents and exfoliators, though thought to be daily skin care items, are not good for acne prone skin. Furthermore, they can aggravate the skin and make it more difficult to tolerate acne medication that is being prescribed by dermatologists. So, it is best to avoid these while being treated for acne.
Also, tanning is thought to help get rid of acne, but this is a myth that is not only doesn’t help acne, but is also bad for skin. The sun, tanning beds, and sun lamps all emit UV rays.
Do not touch your face unnecessarily Applying makeup or removing gunk from your eye is one thing, but picking, pinching, and popping pimples are definitely a ‘no-no’ in your daily skin care regime. These activities only help to spreading germs. Another reason to avoid these things is that they increase scarring.
Use the right make-up. An important rule in your daily skin care is to check if your cosmetics and moisturizers are oil-free and “noncomedogenic”. This means that they do not clog or block the skin’s pores. Cosmetics that are labeled “noncomedogenic” can be used as a base or under your acne medication/makeup.
Use a sun block. If you think that daily skin care means getting your daily dose of sun, then you are mistaken! As stated earlier, too much sun actually works against your skin. This is particularly true for acne sufferers who use retinol treatments. Topical retinoids make the top layer of the skin thin and more open to the risks of developing melanoma and different skin cancers.
So, to be safe, liberally apply a sun block or sun screen that will give you protection from ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays. A sunscreen of SPF15 works well.
Often people in search of “pimple remedies” find only disappointment instead of true help. The fact is that information is the BEST of the pimple remedies. The reason’s because it is in understanding skin that one can get rid of zits long-term and truly get clear skin.
