ACNE BREAK OUTS are commonly seen in the season, not just amongst those with dry skin but also those with oily people. When cosmetics are applied to reduce oiliness of the face, acne break out happens. Overzealous scrubbing to remove blackheads also leads to irritated, red and inflamed skin. People with oily skin should consult a Dermatologist when choosing a cleanser, sunscreen, anti-pimple medication and moisturizers. In case of acne breakouts, prompt treatment is necessary to prevent spotting and scarring. Blackheads are actually the initiation of pimples, scrubbing removes them temporarily only to reappear. Fortnightly or monthly chemical peels are better to treat acne.
HOW TO PREVENT BREAKOUTS?
– Gently cleanse your face with medicated skin cleansers prescribed by a Dermatologist 2-3 times in a day. Rest of the day, wash your face 2-3times wash with plain water
– An alcohol based toner should be used after face cleansing. This should be followed by application of sunscreen in daytime and moisturizer in the evenings
– Mild uniform bead scrub can be used twice-thrice a week.
