What is a good routine to follow for acne-prone skin?
Follow these oily skin care tips for a good routine.
Cleanse your skin twice and use gentle skin cleansers
Your skincare routine should always begin with a good cleanser, no matter what your skin type is. When you have acne-prone skin, you should cleanse twice a day. This will help eliminate all kinds of impurities, dirt, and excess oil, which cause acne, blemishes, blackheads and whiteheads. We recommend using Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash For Oily & Acne-prone Skin. It deeply cleanses and purifies your skin by clearing away dead skin cells, dirt and excess oils that clog pores and cause breakouts.

Tone your skin twice a day after cleansing
To open up your pores, apply toner after you've cleaned your face. In this way, the skin is ready to absorb the products correctly and is prepared for the next step. Toning also reduces oil production, fights blemishes, and removes blackheads from the skin. You can use Dermalogica Ultracalming Mist which is a soothing, hydrating mist to calm redness and sensitivity. It helps create a shield against environmental assaults, and synergistically relieves and restores skin while fighting future flare-ups.

Moisturise twice a day
It is very important to hydrate your skin with a moisturiser irrespective of what your skin type is. It is therefore essential to moisturise twice a day.
You may already be using topical acne treatments, which means that your skin is likely to be dehydrated. To prevent dry, peeling skin, apply a light moisturiser twice a day, morning and evening. Follow the toner with Dermalogica Oil Free Matte Spf30 Face Moisturiser And Sunscreen For Oily Skin.

Don’t skip sunscreen
Sun protection is essential for your skin. There are more benefits to wearing sunscreen than just protecting yourself from sunburn. You are less likely to develop premature dark spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer.
You can find a lot of good sunscreens available today that do not clog pores or cause acne to worsen. Many acne medications increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun. In order to maintain good skin health, you should wear sunscreen daily.
We recommend using Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster Spf 50 that contains Green Tea and Grape Seed extracts that form an invisible shield against skin-damaging environmental factors.
