Acne Canada - Your Acne Treatment Guide

ACNE DO'S AND DON'TS


Skincare should not be undervalued. I mean we are talking about the body's largest organ, which protects our insides from the outside. It's both a filter and a barrier. Typically, we don't think about our skin's health and function until we're faced with a problem. When the problem (or problems) confronts us in the mirror, we desire quick results. Fair enough. But before you seek a solution, set up a skincare schedule-and follow it. After all, skin is for life. Any acne treatment products that you use are only as effective as you are dilligent about acne do's and don'ts. Follow the below list to make the most of your acne skin care program.

Do

-Wash your face twice a day with warm water and a light, oil-free cleanser.

-Gently scrub your skin with a fine exfoliant to remove dead skin cells that clog pores.

-Apply acne medication such as salicylic acid or tea tree oil to manage blemishes.

-Use anti-inflammatories such as Allantoin to reduce redness and swelling.

-Apply products with vitamin C to reduce the marks that acne leaves behind.

-Use a water-based moisturizer to keep skin soft, smooth and hydrated.

-Keep hair clean and off your face.

-Change your pillowcases and towels often.

-Avoid irritated skin and use mild, fragrance-free detergents to clean your clothes.

-Replace cosmetic sponges and sterilize brushes to reduce bacteria.

-Drink plenty of water, eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

-Seek the advice of a dermatologist if your skin condition doesn't improve.

 

Don't

-Ignore it. It doesn't take much time to maintain great skin.

-Scrub your face or use hot water, as it will aggravate acne.

-Squeeze or pick pimples because this can spread infection and provoke scarring.

-Continue using harsh astringents and cleansers that irritate or over-dry your skin, which makes up by producing more oil.

-Expose skin to extreme temperatures or sunlight. The sun's UV rays can lead to dry, itchy, blistered skin and at worst, skin cancer.

-Use greasy oil-based cosmetics that can clog pores and trigger breakouts.

 

Break the cycle of acne. Be proud to be in your skin.
