Acne is described as a diseased skin condition that involves the hair and sebaceous glands. It is characterized by pimples, black/white heads, inflammation and cysts. Face acne breakouts can spoil your appearance to a great extent and body acne can really ruin your day by making you really miserable. Thinking of acne as a small problem, many people tend to totally discard the topic of Acne skin care. However, the importance of skin care cannot be overlooked in any way.

Acne treatment should really start much prior to the acne actually appears. Acne skin care is more about being proactive rather than reactive. When treating acne your skin care regime is all about being conscious of preventive measures. To best avoid acne breakouts you should stick to daily skin care programs with complete discipline. So lets take a look at how preventative methods can be applied to our daily routine.

Acne treatment begins with the most simple thing – cleanliness. So morning showers are the most fundamental way of keeping your skin clean. In fact, a lot of people take nightly showers too (that not only helps in keeping your skin clean but additionally provides relaxation to your body and enables a good rest). If you’re living in a hot and/or humid place, a night shower becomes a must. In fact, a shower is suggested after any activity that causes high levels of sweat to develop. Its a very effective acne skin care technique.

However, treating acne is not about just showers. It is also about wearing clean clothes and sleeping on clean pillows. Additionally, too tight clothes can cause sweat to accumulate quickly; so soft and comfortable cotton clothes are recommended, especially if you curently have acne. In the same sense, acne skin care also advocates regular cleaning of your make-up brush and any equipment that you use on your body.

Besides that, you should also use a mild, water-soluble, oil-free and soap-free acne cleanser for keeping your face, neck and arms clean. Cleansing is the most important part of any skin care routine. Cleaners are the easiest and the simplest way of removing dirt, grease, pollutants and excess oil from your skin; thus reducing the likelihood of acne occurrence. It is also very important to remove your make up using a make up remover, and this should happen before going to bed (not in the morning).

If you already have acne, don’t attempt to touch them or squeeze them; it can result in permanent scarring. Use gentle cleansing steps and cleaning of the affected area using an over-the-counter medication and a clean/soft cotton pad. There are numerous acne skin care creams and lotions available over-the-counter (a lot of these acne skin care products are actually cleansers). However, if these acne skin care steps don’t give you the desired results, contact a dermatologist for acne advice and treatment.
