Skin Care for Acne Prone Skin

skin careProper skin care plays a vital role in fighting acne. If you have one, do not worry too much since everybody else tends to have it once in their lives. However, you need to cleanse your skin in order to make that nasty acne disappear. Here are some useful guides to win the battle against acne.

Limit the frequency you wash your face – Wash your face up to twice a day—once in the morning and once at night—as well as after perspiring. Sweat, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse. That is why you need to gently cleanse your face as soon as possible after perspiring.

Use the right kind of cleanser – Wash the face and other acne-prone areas with a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser that does not contain alcohol.

Use your fingertips – Apply the cleanser and wash with your fingertips to reduce skin irritation. Using a washcloth or mesh sponge can irritate the skin and lead to more breakouts.

Never scrub the skin – Scrubbing the skin does not clear acne, it actually irritates the skins and can make acne worse.

Rinse with lukewarm water – Be sure to thoroughly rinse away the cleanser with lukewarm (not hot) water. Any suds of cleanser left on your face could also cause irritation, or even more acne.

Shampoo regularly – If you have oily hair, shampoo it daily especially if you have long hair. The dirt from your hair would tend to interact on your skin and could block pores which result to acne.
