Tips to Take Care of Acne Prone Skin

Wash your face twice a day, especially after coming from outside. Always be gentle while choosing your skin care products and at any cost avoid the harsh products which contain harsh or abrasive ingredients.

Doesn’t matter how hard it is, but never pop or pick on your pimples as it will worsen the situation, let alone do anything good. You may be tempted to pop them but you have to stop this habit altogether.

Go for the Dermatologist recommended or formulated products. These products are specially formulated by the Dermatologists keeping in mind the ingredients suitable for the acne and pimple prone skin and most importantly these products are meant for particular skin type. Therefore, if you have oily and acne prone skin, choose Dermatologist formulated skin care products for acne prone skin type.

Face Cleansers

When it comes to the oily skin face cleansers, Neutrogena Oil free cleanser and Dermatologica face cleanser are excellent products that one can try. Even Plum green tea toner and face wash, is a great combination to cleanse your skin and to close the pores after cleansing.

Other than that, always try to use non-comedogenic skin care products. And here, when we say non comedogenic products it is important that you check the labels of your products. However when it comes to make up, here most of us get tricked. There are so many different types of foundations, powder blushes, blushes and highlighter that can actually irritate the skin and lead to pore blockage. Hence, even if you are using good skin care products which are keeping your skin healthy use of wrong or makeup products can lead to acne and pimples. Using the correct skin care as well as makeup product is essential to keep your skin free of acne and zits.

Healthy diet

After the skin care products and makeup products, it is also very important to have a healthy diet. The first thing that you can incorporate in your daily routine is to have a lot of water. Drinking 7 to 8 glasses of water will definitely keep you hydrated and keep your skin moisturized and dewy. You can also include Vitamin C in your diet as Vitamin C is one of the best natural antioxidant that can give you sparkly bright skin.

Face Masks and Packs

Use of face pack and face mask is also quite beneficial when you have acne prone pimple prone skin. Face mask which are rich in ingredients like French clay, Red clay, Salicylic acid, Neem, Tea tree and more are excellent facial mask and packs to keep the skin free of any bacteria and to keep the skin pores clean. You can also use a deep pore cleansing purifying toner as well.

Face Scrubs

To keep the skin clean, using a face scrub regularly will also help you a lot. Use of the physical scrubs which have got the granules and abrasive materials is fine when you have normal skin, but not to forget that for very sensitive skin the chemical cleansers like glycolic acid used in less concentration will definitely work.
