4 Simple Tips to Build An Acne-Fighting Skincare Routine


If you are someone who is dealing with the worries of having acne-prone skin, then you know that buying skincare products or developing an am and pm skincare regime is not that simple for you.

You have to be vigilant when you are buying skincare products and check the label for ingredients. There are several do’s and don’t when it comes to forming a skincare routine for your skin as you want to ensure that your acne breakout doesn’t get aggravated with too many products or too many steps.

In this article, we have decided to bring you the ultimate skincare routine for acne prone skin.

Dermatologist-recommended skin care tips for acne-prone skin

The most important rule to follow when you are shopping for skin care products for acne-prone skin is to pick out products that say ‘ non-comedogenic, oil-free or non-acne genic’.

Once you have built your skincare kit with the right products, follow these tips to get clear and glowing skin.

1. Cleanse the right way

You must never over-exfoliate or over-cleanse if you have acne-prone skin. Being gentle is the key when it comes to dealing with acne. Invest in a gentle foaming cleanser that has acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid, ceramides or benzoyl peroxide and wash your face gently with it once in the morning and once at the beginning of your nighttime skincare ritual.

Keep in mind that you must use lukewarm water to wash your face and not hot water as hot water can further irritate your skin pores.

2. Use a non-greasy moisturiser

Many people feel that since their skin is oily and clogged, it is okay to skip moisturising. That is not the case. Moisturising your skin is important as it helps to maintain and balance your skin’s sebum production.

Add a non-comedogenic moisturiser in your skincare kit which has acne-fighting skin acids like hyaluronic acid and salicylic acid. Grab makeO skinnsi happy hydrate ceramide face moisturiser if you are looking for a moisturiser that deeply nourishes your skin and soothes irritation.

3. Invest in a good quality sunscreen

It is tempting to skip wearing sunscreen as many sunscreens clog your pores and are greasy. However, sunscreen doesn’t just protect your skin from sun damage but it also helps to soothe inflammation and redness caused by acne.

Shop for a light-textured, non-comedogenic sunscreen which has ingredients like hyaluronic, niacinamide and zinc oxide which help to treat and prevent future acne breakouts.
