All you need to improve acne-prone skin!

Caring for acne-prone skin is more than covering your face with products. Finding the perfect solution for your skin can be hard, but we’ll let you in on what you need to know to kiss those pimples goodbye!

Simple lifestyle changes that make a difference

The skincare products you use have a lot to do with the state of your skin (keep reading to find the perfect skincare routine for acne down below), but your habits and the way you use them, do too. 

A basic rule, cleanse twice a day and after sweating. When doing so, use your fingertips to apply your cleanser, be gentle. Afterward, rinse with lukewarm water rather than hot or cold. 

All through your day, keep your hands off your face as much as you can. Let your skin heal naturally, avoid picking or popping your zits, as this will only make your face heal slower, and increase the risk of getting scars.

Stay out of the sun, and make sure to wear sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy! Tanning beds aren’t a solution, as they emit UV light and can be just as harmful. For a safe and natural tanning method, you should check out this blog post.

And most importantly, consult a dermatologist. Paying a visit to the dermatologist is the best way to keep your acne under control and finding the best solutions for your skin. 

The skincare habits you need 

It can be frustrating when you can’t find the products that work for your skin. Everyone is different, and the way our skin reacts to skincare products is unique. 

Constancy is essential, don’t give up. When trying new products, use them for at least a month or two, unless they irritate your skin or show adverse reactions. 

At APoEM, we highly recommend the Detox line of products for oily and acne-prone skin. Start with the Detox Face Wash, a gentle low-foam cleanser that makes your skin look softer. When necessary, exfoliate with the Detox Face Scrub. Recharge and moisturize with the Detox Serum. Rebalance with the Calm Toner, and for the drier areas of your face, use the Restore Moisturizer.

On top of this, the way you apply these products to your face is also crucial. 

First of all, be gentle with your skin. It may seem like the only way to get rid of acne is with abrasive products, but this only damages your skin. Look for alcohol-free formulas and avoid products that irritate your skin. 

Use a gentle exfoliator or scrub if necessary. The use you give to it will depend on your skin and its day-to-day state; some people may be able to exfoliate every day while others should limit to doing so monthly, pay attention to your needs.

Oily skin and how to take care of it

Everyone’s skin is different, we all have specific needs and problems to target, but in general, there are three different skin types.

If you notice your face gets “oily” shortly after cleansing, or if you think you have excess sebum, you probably have oily skin. Oily skin is one of the most common but also the most problematic skin types to have, but don’t worry, it can be easy to fix!

Identifying the causes of oily skin

The main thing to focus on when treating oily skin is sebum. Sebum is a substance produced by the sebaceous glands, predominant on your back, chin, and forehead.

Hormones are what influence sebum production the most. An equilibrated sebum level is beneficial for the skin, which is why the target should be to control it, no to eliminate it

Habits for better skin

When treating sebum, most people would think that strong cleansers and not using a moisturizer are the way to go. However, this is wrong! Let us teach you. 

A deep cleanser isn’t always the answer, as oily skin can often be mistreated and therefore turn sensible. Look for skincare with lighter and gentler ingredients, and cleanse day and night. The Detox Face Wash is an excellent option.

Moisturizing is vital for every skin type, even oily ones. Skipping a moisturizer will cause your skin to produce more sebum, trying to hydrate your skin. Choose a light moisturizer or serum that doesn’t clog your pores. The Detox Serum is a great choice!

For a deeper cleanse, exfoliate once or twice a week, depending on your needs and the season. Try the Detox Face Scrub for this matter.

Don’t give up after trying products that didn’t work. Everyone’s unique, and every skin has different reactions. 

If your skin is oily in some parts and drier in others, you might have combination skin. In this case, treat the oilier parts of your face as instructed before, giving a different approach to the less oily areas

How and why should you moisturize oily skin?

You may think that having oily skin means you can skip the moisturizer after cleansing. Why would you want to make your face look shinier, right? But in reality, you should never underestimate a good moisturizer. Moisturizing your skin is just as important as cleansing, no matter your skin type, both are non-negotiable.
