Regardless of how long your acne has been around for, the way you treat your skin is very different to normal skin washing routines. Acne prone skin is incredibly sensitive, and can be flared up by a simple change of product or misuse of cream.

Washing the right way can help reduce acne – just by following a few simple tips, which come courtesy of WebMD.

  1. Choose a cleanser specially formulated for acne. These products often contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which help to clear acne sores.
  2. Clean your face gently, as trauma to the acne breakouts may worsen the acne or cause scarring. When washing your face, use your hands, as any terrycloth or other scrubbing material may cause acne sores to rupture.
  3. If you need to use a moisturizer, use only light, non-comedogenic moisturizers, which do not aggravate acne. There are oil-free moisturizers on the market that contain anti-bacterial agents for acne-prone skin. This type of product may be your best option.
  4. If you wear makeup, use an oil-free foundation. Heavy makeup or other cosmetic products that block pores may cause a flare-up of acne.
  5. Never pick. Picking can result in further inflammation and possible scarring.
