Acne can really be a true pain in the neck… especially if it does not seem to be going away. In this case, no matter what treatment you use, an appropriate skincare routine should be the basis of your anti-acne care. Follow us through every needed step so that you make sure that you do not miss one!
Regardless of how good-quality your products are, if you do not cleanse properly, they will not get a chance to do their job. Thorough, yet gentle, everyday cleansing is a must for preventing the formation of comedones - the primary acne lesions. Wash your face twice a day - do not overcleanse though; it will throw your sebum production off balance. Depending on your skin type, go for:
This delicate cleanser has a soft milky formula which will protect your skin from further irritation while cleansing. Since it contains amino acids and the skin’s natural moisturizing factors, it minimizes the disruption of the skin’s lipid mantle.
Hi Amino All Cleanser has a form of a pleasant foam which gently, yet effectively, penetrates deep into your pores to get rid of impurities. Moreover, it possees a fair share of nourishing amino acids to boost your skin’s natural glow.
If you have an excessively oily skin and need additional help when cleansing, AC Dew Foam contains calamine - an innovative ingredient which delicately regulates the skin’s sebum production. At the same time, salicylic acid additionally helps to dispose of superficial dead skin cells and skin debris.
Using a peeling once or twice a week is imperative to having a clean, bright skin. Not only does it eliminate the skin debris which clogs the pores, but also stimulates the production of new skin cells in the basal layer of the epidermis.
The Clean Lab Peeling Gel is ideal for all skin types. Being full of plant-derived, gentle ingredients, it effectively peels the skin without causing unwanted irritation.
Cleansing unavoidably disrupts your skin’s natural pH - if it does not come back to it’s pre-cleansing state, the skin becomes more prone to irritation, infections and hence, blemishes.
The Calamine Toner not only restores the healthy pH of the skin, but also visibly soothes and calms the complexion. A splash of calamine prevents the overgrowth of the acne-causing bacteria.
Now that you had cleansed and toned your face, you should lock in the moisture so that your skin stays hydrated all day or all night. Proper moisturizing both averts the oversecretion of the sebum as well as prevents infections since it strengthens the skin’s protective barrier.
If you do not have a need to additionally tame your sebum production, this moisturizer is a perfect match for you. A mixture of hydrating ingredients and plant extracts offers a true moisturizing and antioxidant boost to the skin. At the same time, it is not too sticky nor too heavy.
This moisturizer is to opt for if you fall into the oilier side of the skin type spectrum. It has a lightweight gel formula and is enriched with calamine - a special ingredient which both regulates sebum secretion and inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacteria.
If you happen to have an occasional zit here and there, thus do not need a prescribed treatment, anti-acne patches will do the trick.
Simply apply the patch to the affected area. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory calamine will soothe the blemishes while the special hydrocolloid formula will calm the irritated skin around them.
