What causes Acne?
Your skin is composed of hair follicles. Sometimes, these follicles or small pits become blocked due to dirt, oil or sweat leading to acne.
Additionally, acne can be caused due of the following reasons.
- Damaged skin barrier.
- Hormonal changes or imbalance in the body.
- Excessive oil production in the skin.
- Changes in diet.
- Insufficient water intake.
Hence, it becomes necessary to follow the best acne treatment skin tips for healthy, clear and glowing skin.
Skin Treatments to Combat Acne
So what should you do to ensure that your acne skin care yields results in no time? Our experts suggest trying the below-mentioned skin care tips for acne.
#1 Wash Your Face Twice Daily
If you have acne prone skin, the first step to your acne skin care is washing your face daily. In your case, wash your face twice a day – once in the morning and then again before going to sleep. While you’re at it, you can try using a balancing face wash. The Aminu AHA Face Wash is ideal for all skin types and can help you achieve smooth, radiant skin. It is made up of five types of natural AHAs to help remove impurities from the skin.
#2 Avoid Scrubbing Skin
Always be gentle to your skin. While using a face scrub or exfoliant is a good way of removing impurities, you shouldn’t do it often if you have acne prone skin. You can proceed with your acne treatment by using a scrub once in 10 days, or when your skin doesn’t have any active acne.
#3 Prevent Sun Exposure
Acne-prone skin remains sensitive to the UV rays of the sun. Hence, sun protection is ideal. It is recommended to not step out during the humid hours of the day, between 12-4pm in the afternoons. In case you really have to, don’t forget to use sunscreen. Wearing a hat or scarf can also help prevent sun exposure to the skin.
#4 Get A Facial
A facial can be your skin’s best friend if you get it done every 15-20 days. At Bodycraft, you can try the Dermalogica Power Bright advanced facial that can help tone, brighten and clarify skin with just one session.
