How can I create a good skincare routine for acne?

If you are prone to breakouts, good hygiene and the right acne products can be invaluable. Having a daily skincare routine can keep help to remove excess oil, cleanse your skin, and, ultimately, keep your pores free of oil and bacteria that cause breakouts.

With so many products to choose from, how do I know what I need?

There are some basic do’s and don’ts when it comes to taking care of your skin. Following a step-by-step program will help you get into a good basic routine with only the products that you need. A few things to consider before purchasing any acne skincare products:

  • Make sure you are using the right cleanser for your skin. If you wear makeup or work out, your skin collects oil, dirt, and airborne toxins. Cleansing will ensure you remove all traces of sweat and dirt, so your skin is fresh and clean before sleep.
  • A toner or an astringent can be applied to remove any remaining oils, makeup, or dirt. Take notice of the type of skin you have. Is it typically dry, oily, or a combination? Toners may sting current acne blemishes if alcohol-based.
  • After cleansing and toning, apply the acne treatment products to your skin. Take time to ensure the cream is completely absorbed into your skin.
  • Lastly, apply a topical moisturizer or gel, and don’t forget the sunscreen.
