Admitting you’ve been cruel, punishing, and sometimes too harsh to your skin is only a start. Finding the proper skin care routine and products is what you should do next.
But, do you know what’s best for your skin?
Dermatologists always encourage kindness and patience. Getting to know your skin better is also essential. So, make an appointment at your favorite dermatologist in town and learn how to take care of and love your skin.
Here are a few things you should also know.
Find the Right Face Wash
If you deal with acne-prone skin, using a mild cleanser can do wonders for your skin!
A cleanser that bares the skin of its natural oils can trigger oil production, and you get more breakouts. So, don’t use just any face wash.
Introduce Retinoids to Your Skin Care Routine
Did you know that a topical retinoid can efficiently fight off clogged pores and aid acne treatments work faster and better?
You should start by applying a little amount (pea-size) of retinol to your face every three days. Your skin will soon adjust, and you can apply more. Remember that it’s always best to discuss with a specialist first!
Don’t Forget About Sunscreen
Staying in the sun to burn away breakouts is a huge myth that we need to debunk!
“[…] sun, heat and humidity can cause oil glands to become overactive, which can lead to acne breakouts,” explains Dr Dendy Engelman, board-certified dermatologic surgeon.
Apply sunscreen and wear a hat each time you go out and spend more time in the sun.
Choose the Perfect Toner
High-alcohol toners are always a bad idea if you deal with acne or other annoying breakouts. Dermatologists recommend a toner with salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Also, the perfect toner can balance your skin’s natural pH level, calm your skin, and reduce redness.
You can apply the tonner in the morning and evening after you cleanse your face to prevent any dead skin cells from clogging pores.
