Acne Awareness Month!

Acne Awareness Month!

June is acne awareness month. Whether is it mild or significant, it can be emotionally and physically painful to have acne, so what can you do?

  1. Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser that removes product without stripping your skin.
  2. Remove your makeup! Micellar water or makeup remover wipes (Simple makes some of my favorites), take off your makeup and gently cleanse to remove residue after.
  3. Stop using the harsh scrubs. Acne does not mean your skin is dirty, so stick to gentle.
  4. Avoid adding too many products at once. Too many cooks in the kitchen is never a good thing. Add in one treatment at a time.
  5. Look for agents that are non-comedogenic , hypoallergenic, oil-free when it comes to makeup.
  6. Use throw-away sponges. Brushes are pretty, but unless you clean them after every use you can leave pores clogged.
  7. Use acne medication over any areas that are acne prone, not just on the acne.
  8. Give treatments time too work, 4-6 weeks is the minimum number of weeks your skin needs to show improvement.
  9. Seek treatment early. Dermatologists are here to help. If you have tried multiple methods with no luck, a simple change in routine and prescriptions may be all you need.
