Visit Serendipity Salon and Spa Esthetician and discuss Acne Treatment

Do you feel you’ve tried just about everything to get rid of your acne but still see blemishes? Don’t despair. To see clearer skin, you probably just need to make some changes.

Using a new acne product every few days may seem useful, but that approach can worsen acne. Acne treatment needs time to work. Using a different product every few days can also irritate your skin, causing new breakouts.

If a treatment works for you, you should notice some improvement in 4 to 6 weeks. It can take two to three months or longer to see clearing.

If you notice improvement, keep using the treatment. Even when you see clearing, you'll want to keep using the acne treatment. This helps to prevent new breakouts.

Wash your face twice a day and after sweating.
Acne-prone skin is sensitive. Washing more than twice a day can irritate your skin, making acne worse.

For best results, dermatologists recommend washing your face when you:

  • Wake up

  • Are ready to go to bed

  • Have a sweaty face

Stop scrubbing your face and other acne-prone skin.
If your skin feels greasy, dirty, or grimy, you may be tempted to scrub it clean. Don’t! Scrubbing can irritate acne-prone skin, which worsens acne.

Use skin care products and cosmetics that don’t cause acne.
These products are labeled. On the package, you may see one of the following:

  • Won't clog pores

  • Non-comedogenic

  • Non-acnegenic

  • Oil free

10 Skincare Habits that can help clear acne

Are you faithfully treating your acne but still seeing new breakouts? Your skincare routine could be to blame. Here are 10 skin care habits that dermatologists recommend to help you get the best results from your acne treatment:

  1. Wash twice a day and after sweating. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.

  2. Use your fingertips to apply a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge, or anything else can irritate the skin.

  3. Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Do not use products that irritate your skin, which may include astringents, toners, and exfoliants. Dry, red skin makes acne appear worse.

  4. Scrubbing your skin can make acne worse. Avoid the temptation to scrub your skin.

  5. Rinse with lukewarm water

  6. Shampoo regularly. If you have oily hair, shampoo daily.

  7. Let your skin heal naturally. If you pick, pop, or squeeze your acne, your skin will take longer to clear and you increase the risk of getting acne scars.

  8. Keep your hands off your face. Touching your skin throughout the day can cause flare-ups.

  9. Stay out of the sun and tanning beds. Tanning damages your skin. In addition, some acne medications make the skin very sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, which you get from both the sun and indoor tanning devices.

    • Using tanning beds increases your risk for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, by 75%.

  10. Consult a dermatologist if:

    • Your acne makes you shy or embarrassed.

    • The products you've tried have not worked.

    • Your acne is leaving scars or darkening your skin.

Today, virtually every case of acne can be successfully treated. Dermatologists can help treat existing acne, prevent new breakouts, and reduce your chance of developing scars. If you have questions or concerns about caring for your skin, you should make an appointment to see a dermatologist.
