Skincare Tips for Acne
- Try an over the counter acne treatment such as a face wash or cream. This can often be enough to tackle mild acne.
- Use a moisturiser every day, even if your skin is oily. Make sure it is non-comedogenic as this means it won’t exacerbate your acne
- Don’t squeeze or pick at your spots as this could put you at risk of infection and scarring.
- Exfoliating once a week can help, but the acne products you’re using can make your skin more sensitive so you shouldn’t scrub too hard.
- Facemasks that are designed to remove blackheads can sometimes help to improve the appearance of your skin, but you’ll still need to tackle the underlying problem with an over the counter or prescription acne treatment.
- If you wear makeup, choose non-comedogenic products as these won’t block pores and trigger your acne.
