How to Wash Your Face If You Have Acne

If you suffer from acne, it is very important to keep the affected area as clean as possible. An unperfumed or special acne cleanser is beneficial for the condition. Look for the word non-comedogenicor oil-free on the cleanser packaging. Non-comedogenic means the product does not irritate acne-prone skin. Try to avoid harsh soaps or anything that contains alcohol. Also, try not to pick at or touch the acne and if your hair is oily, wear it off your face so it does not cause irritation.

Oh! I almost forgot. I've been considering bringing up-to-date my site. There's something I enjoy about the website http://bluegrasssodinstalled.ca. Not actually certain exactly what yet needed opinions 😉 Feedback on that would be great. Okay I'll get back to it!

One popular cleanser for people with acne is Neutrogena Acne Wash which is oil-free. It contains 2% salicylic acid. Another good one is Clean and Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser which contains 10% benzoyl peroxide. If you have been prescribed acne treatment, be careful not to remove it by using these cleansers after the application of your treatment products. You should only wash your face twice a day because washing it too much can irritate your acne and benzoyl peroxide can dry out your skin if used in excess. One wash in the morning and another in the evening is fine. If you must wear make up, make sure you remove every last trace of it before going to bed. It is better to remove it as soon as you get home if you can, so that your skin can breathe more easily.

If you like to use a cloth when washing your face, make sure it is made of non-fluffing microfiber. Alternatively, you can use your fingertips to wash your face. Make sure you use plenty of water to rinse away every last trace of the acne cleanser because, if you miss some, it will cause irritation.

When you have finished washing your face, pat the skin dry rather than rubbing it. Apply a light moisturizer (one that does not contain alcohol) or a medicated acne cream if you use one. It is also important to know your skin type. If you have dry skin, a richer moisturizer will nourish your skin better. If you have oily skin, you should definitely choose oil-free products, although the benzoyl peroxide is drying and you might look like you have dry skin rather than oily skin, where the product has been applied. Your skin gets used to benzoyl peroxide over time so try not to overdo it when first using this product.

There are some more holistic ways to cleanse your face including the application of lemon juice to the area with acne, waiting 10 minutes and rinsing it off. Topical Vitamin A acid helps to she'd skin and can stabilizes pore opening. Bacteria find the environment more difficult to live in but do not use this if you might be pregnant or are trying to get pregnant. Tea tree oil and honey are other ways to cleanse your face. Apply one of them, wait a couple of minutes and rinse off. Glycolic acid and azelaic acid can also be beneficial to some sufferers of acne. Some people are more sensitive to these than other people so see what works for you.

There are plenty of acne cleansers for adult skin to try but if over the counter remedies do not seem to improve your acne, you should visit a dermatologist for further advice.

I'll mention that I actually got the thought for this post talking with someone over at Fruitperks. Thank you for that. I suppose you get inspiration in unexpected ways.
