Acne Prevention Tips for Your Skin Type

Normal Skin Care
Normal Skin Care

Normal skin has soft texture, smooth and even skin tone and has no visible spots, blemishes or patches. The skin surface is neither dry nor greasy.

Wash your face 2 – 3 times a day using a gentle soap or mild cleanser and water to remove the sweat and dirt. This helps the skin to remain safe from acne.

Dry Skin Care

Dry skin has scaly, rough, itchy and dull texture with visible pores. Skin becomes dry due to abnormal shedding of outer layer skin cells. This skin type is less prone to acne.

Wash your face every day using a gentle and mild cleanser. After washing, moisturize the face with a non-alcoholic, non-perfumed lotion. Limit high temperatures, taking hot showers and low humidity that rob your skin from moisture. After a shower, pat dry your skin and apply mineral oil all over the skin. This helps to keep the skin soft and supple, thus lessening the chances of acne flare-ups.

Oily Skin Care

Oily skin is most prone to acne as it has open pores. It is even prone to blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes and pustules due to excess production of oil from oily glands.

Wash your face 3 – 4 times a day with a gentle soap and water. If it is difficult to wash face during work or school hours, it is better you carry cleansing pads available which help in removing the excess dirt and oil from skin surface. Use noncomedogenic facial washes and lotions as they reduce clog pores. Washing your hair every day also helps.

Combination Skin Care

Wash your face 2 – 3 times every day with a gentle soap and water. This helps to remove the excess oil. Apply moisturizer only to the dry areas leaving the oily areas.
