How to Treat Acne-prone Skin

0 minute read

Acne-prone skin is a common problem for many people, and it can be frustrating to deal with. Fortunately, there are many ways to treat and prevent acne that can help you achieve clear, healthy-looking skin. In this blog, we will discuss various tips and strategies to help you manage acne-prone skin effectively.

What is Acne-Prone Skin?

Acne-prone skin is characterized by the presence of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of acne. It is often caused by excess oil production, which can clog pores and lead to inflammation and breakouts. Genetics, hormonal changes, stress, and environmental factors can all contribute to acne-prone skin.

Tips for Treating Acne-Prone Skin

  1. Develop a Skincare Routine

A proper skincare routine can help to reduce oil production and unclog pores, which can help prevent breakouts. A skincare routine should include cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt and oil from your skin, followed by a toner to remove any remaining impurities. Finish with a non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated without clogging pores.

Our most popular H40 Cleanser has been rated the #1 Cleanser by Vogue and Marie Claire Magazine in 2022 and is the perfect cleanser to use for your acne-prone skin.

2. Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin once or twice a week can help remove dead skin cells and prevent the buildup of oil and dirt in your pores. It is best to use a gentle exfoliator since using facial scrubs or exfoliators with little beads could irritate your skin.

We recommend using a High-Definition Hydro Exfoliating Micro Clarifier. This is made of water molecules that gently remove dead skin, without any beads and thus not harmful to your skin. This product is so gentle that you can use it every day.

3. Use Non-Comedogenic Products

Non-comedogenic products are specially formulated to avoid clogging pores. Look for products that are labelled as non-comedogenic, such as moisturisers, sunscreens, and makeup. This will help to prevent acne breakouts caused by product buildup.

We recommend using the Be Active Conditioning Masque Moisture (also available only at Pores X)

3. Avoid Harsh Scrubs and Exfoliants

Harsh scrubs and exfoliants can damage the skin’s protective barrier, leading to irritation and breakouts. Instead, opt for gentle exfoliants, such as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), which can help to unclog pores without damaging the skin.

Our state-of-the-art medifacial machine is extremely gentle on your skin and yet powerful enough for you to see results from just 1 treatment. 

We recommend monthly treatments of our signature Full Face Active Cleansing facial to get glowy, cleaner and acne-free skin.

Acne-prone skin can be frustrating to deal with, but with the right approach, it can be effectively managed. By developing a skincare routine, using non-comedogenic products, avoiding harsh scrubs and exfoliants,as well as proper monthly facial treatments, you can achieve clear, healthy-looking skin. Remember to be patient and consistent with your skincare routine, as it may take time to see results.
