There are two types of acne, non-inflammatory acne—white and blackheads, and inflammatory—regular zits with or without a head. When choosing your skincare for acne, you’ll be looking for products that balance excess oil which causes clogged pores.
If you have oily or combination skin you have more oil producing glands than those with dry skin, so you’ll need to reduce the oil production without drying the skin. Oil-free formulations which clarify and balance are ideal for this. Look to products that contain salicylic acid and niacinamide. Fighting the bacteria that contributes to inflammatory acne, these actives clear out pores, reducing them in size, and preventing further breakouts. For treating white and blackheads, AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) such as glycolic and lactic acid will be your go-tos as they provide deep, effective exfoliation. A key tip for clearing skin and preventing acne is to ensure you are cleansing your face thoroughly at night. Removing excess oil, debris, makeup, and any other build-up from the day is crucial in letting your skin repair and regenerate overnight. A purifying cleanser followed with a retinol serum for overnight clarity will be an game-changer.
