What You Need To Know About Treating Acne Prone Skin

By Lovemore Gerald

Who likes to see a big blackhead on the tip of their nose? No one! That is why it is important that you learn how to deal with acne prone skin.

It is important for you to clean your skin properly in order to reduce the amount of acne that you may have. The first part of that is learning what kind of skin you have. Some people only develop acne in a few places on their body. Others can find it on their face, back, and chest. Take a good look at your skin first. Most people who have acne have either combination or oily skin.

If you have oily skin, your face has a lot of oil on it on a regular basis. If you have long hair and usually wear it down, try wearing it back to see if your acne diminishes when you wear it back. With naturally oily skin, it can seem impossible to get rid of acne.

For those who have combination skin, parts of the face such as the cheeks may be normal or dry, whereas areas such as the forehead, nose and chin can seem oily. This kind of oily pattern is sometimes called a T-zone. For both kinds of oily skin, the solution is fairly simple.

Acne prone skin requires frequent cleaning. As often as five times a day, and as little as two, wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Always follow the cleaning with splashing cool, fresh water afterwards and pat dry with a clean towel.

As tempting as it may be to pop that zit, resist the temptation. Not only will you possibly scar yourself with your finger nails in the process, but you may further infect the pimple. Keep your fingers away from it and you will not scar yourself for life.

Some dermatologists will recommend that you follow washing with a toner or something that soaks up the oils on your face. This can cause drying of the affected areas, so if you choose this treatment, be careful. If your acne is severe, you may use a treatment cream that treats the outbreak with something that has minute amounts of a compound like salicylic acid, benzol peroxide or retinols. After cleaning and removing oils, it is important to moisturize the skin. Always use an oil-free moisturizing lotion. And if all this self care is not enough to deal with your acne condition, consider visiting a dermatologist.
