Why does cleansing is a must? As the name suggests, cleansing our skin first keeps the skin free of excess oil, dirt, sweat, and makeup and leaves the clean base for the next products or treatment to sink into your skin better. Cleansing also avoids clogged pores and dullness. Not only that, with the right cleanser, you can also dry and clear out your acne.

How to find your perfect cleanser for your skin type:

Is toner that important as everybody claim? In today’s toning products, the formula caters to all skin type and will meet your needs at the end of the day. But most people think that toner is a harsh astringent that will strip your skin and irritate your acne even further. Knowing the right ingredients to fix your acne problem is a must as these ingredients deliver extra shots of nutrients into your skin to help other products absorb better.

Moisturizing

moisturizer for acne prone skin

Many people believe that oily skin and acne prone skin has to avoid using moisturizer and dry skin type need a lot of them. But moisturizer is not the same as the excess oil and sebum on your skin. Excess oil appears to replace the moisture that you lose on your skin.

Thus, if you have an oily skin problem, the only way to steer clear from the face that is full of sebum and unnecessary oil is to moisturize it but only to use the right ingredients.

All of the skin types require different texture and ingredients of moisturizer to maximize the effectiveness.

Skin type Moisturizer type What it does
Oily Gel type Gel moisturizer has a
thin consistency that
absorbs fast and will
not leave a sticky
residue that will event-ually make your skin
oilier.

and hydrates your skin just enough that it
would not produce
more oil.
Dry Cream type or
oil-based type
Cream type moistu-
rizer has a thick consis-tency that will
hydrate your dry skin deeper and will ease
any flakes or patches.

While oil based
moisturizer will
deliver extra
moisture to act as
heavy duty hydration to plump your dull
skin.
Sensitive Oil-based type or
gel type
Face oil is tolerated by sensitive skin because
it is natural oil with no false ingredients in it.
Its consistency, even
some of them is thick,will relief and calm
sensitive skin but at
the same time is
hydrating enough.

The popular natural
carrier oil for face oil
is argan oil, jojoba oil, grape seed oil,
rosehip oil, and
avocado oil.  

The gel-based moisturizer has a thin texture
and cooling effect
that will please
irritated skin. It will
soothe while moisturiz-ing and will not
bother the sensitivity
of the skin.

Extra products/treatments for acne prone skin

Sunscreen

Steer away from chemical sunscreen if you suffer from acne because chemical sunscreen often will irritate your acne prone skin. Try using physical sunscreen that contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that will not irritate skin and does wonder in preventing UV ray from entering the skin.

Mask

Mask act as an extra treatment that you only do it once or twice a week. You might be wondering if I’m talking gibberish because you believe mud and clay mask will dry out the skin and cause irritation to the acne. It is actually not true at all.

Natural mud and clay would never irritate the skin; instead, it will heal all of the problems of your skin. It will dry out your acne so that your acne will shrink faster and later will heal on its own. It is fine to use a drying mask because you only use it once or twice a week as a treatment.

The suitable clay or mud for acne prone skin is:

  • Volcanic ash clay
  • White kaolin clay
  • Bentonite clay
  • Charcoal mud mask
  • Dead sea mud mask

Acne spot treatment

Acne spot treatment is usually in a form of gel, ointment, cream or patches. It only targeted for spots in your face as it contains a potent and high percentage of acne busting active ingredients such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, retinol, and tea tree oil.

Spot treatment usually will heal big acne in a short amount of time but if used aggressively will irritate and leaves dark scars on your skin. 

Eventually, your daily habits will, in fact, have a big impact on your skin. Studying your skin will never be a wasteful time as you are investing in what you see in the mirror every morning.

Depending on the hundreds of product reviews you read, at the end of the day, it all doesn’t matter if you don’t know your skin type.

Ultimately, caring for your skin is simply personal journey and eye-opening to the do’s and don’t’s when it comes to your skin type, that with some elbow grease will definitely bear the fruit of flawless, and clear skin.
