Acne Skin Care


Everyone needs a daily skin care routine in order to keep their skin in tip-top shape. Those who are affected by acne must be especially diligent about the techniques and products they utilize for their skin care. Acne patients usually have skin that is extra sensitive to harsh dyes, perfumes, and other chemicals in many personal care products. If you are experiencing acne, please read futher for some tips regarding skin care with your special needs in mind.

You have likely heard about different skin types such as dry, oily, normal, etc. Chances are if you have acne, you may think you have oily or combination type skin, but in reality, neither of these is correct. People with acne should classify their skin type under a unique category called "problem skin." Problem skin types are easily prone to skin irritation and breakouts, and they have special needs when it comes to skin care.

Look for products that are especially geared toward acne. They will be extra gentle on your sensitive skin, and be formulated without harsh chemical irritants. Hydra-Tone™ and AloeCalm™ are excellent examples of such products.

Nutrition is very important in the war against acne. Certain vitamins and minerals are especially helpful at healing and improving the appearance of the skin. Zinc, vitamins A, C, and E, and B-complex vitamins such as B6 are critical to maintaining healthy skin. They are commonly used to treat acne as well. Sulphur is another natural substance that helps heal acne blemishes. Eat lots of foods high in sulphur, such as garlic and onions. Foods that you may want to avoid include refined sugar and carbohydrates, fatty or fried foods, and sugary sodas. While these don't technically "cause" acne, they do aggravate the condition in many individuals.
