Solutions for Acne Prone Skin

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share my thoughts and solutions on how to deal and help with anything from mild breakouts to severe acne. These are some solutions that I have tried throughout the years.

Don't Use a Complete Acne Routine Unless You Need To

By using a complete acne routine there is a chance that you could dry your skin out of all its natural oils. If you want to use a full acne routine use it for around five days if and when your skin needs it. But this also depends on the severity of your acne. 

Use Oil Free Products

By using oil free products it will in time prevent the skin producing any excess sebum, and this should hopefully reduce the severity of the acne over time and help the skin not to produce as much acne.

Targeted Acne Products 

Try to only purchase items such as targeted spot treatment gel or tea tree oil if you only have mild acne, as this way you are only treating small areas which have acne, rather than the whole face. Also by using targeted acne products you won't strip your skin of any natural oils.

Incorporate Ance Products into Your Usual Skincare Routine

Still use your usual skincare routine, but just add in a targeted spot treatment if you have mild acne. If your acne is more severe you could swap out your usual cleanser for a cleanser that is suitable for acne prone skin or oily combination and also add in a targeted spot treatment. Try to find a combination of products including acne treating products that works for you. But don't overhaul your entire skincare routine, as this could do more harm than good.

Acne Ranges

- Avene Cleanance
- Body Shop Tea Tree Range (blemish prone skin)
- Body Shop Seaweed Range (oily/ combination skin)
- Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions
- Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil Free Range
- Kiehl's Rare Earth Range
- REN Clarimatte Range

Within these ranges are cleansers, toners, serums, masks, moisturisers and treatments.

If you need a product to treat acne just try one or two at a time, and also introduce them slowly. It does take around two months for your skin to adjust to any new products as it has to get used to a new product, and this takes time.

At the end of the day you need to do what is best for you, your skin type and try to treat your acne the best you can. This can take time to find products that work for you as there is a lot of trial and error involved until you find the products that will work best for you. But once you find the right products and a method that works for you; then things should start to look up. But whatever you do "Don't let it get you down."
