Many of us have blemish-prone skin. Whether you are an adolescent or an adult with acne there are a number of things you can do to help minimize and control acenic breakouts.
Mainstream cleansers for oily or blemish prone skins unfortunately strip the skin of its natural oils and in turn produce dry skin. This is counterproductive as the skin will try to combat this dryness by over producing the skins natural oils. This will lead to clogged pores and acne. Instead the key to fighting acne is to use gentle products that clarify and have anti-bacterial properties. While this is no miracle cure, by using the proper products your skin should be moisturized, balanced, and hopefully more manageable.
