If you have oily skin, a gel or foaming cleanser is best for daily skincare. Cleanse at least once a day or if your skin tends to get particularly fatty through the day, then twice daily. For teens with dry skin, a milky cleanser and moisturizer work best. To protect skin from getting wrinkles later in life, use products with natural AHA ingredients.
Remove Makeup Before Going To Bed
It is never a great idea to go to bed without removing your makeup first. If you are too tired after a night out, at least use a cleansing wipe to remove most of the dirt, makeup, and oil. If you frequently go to bed without taking your makeup off, it can result in an acne breakout, or you can develop periocular dermatitis (bumpy rash).
Your aim is to reduce the shine but without being too harsh on the skin. You can use a simple three-step skincare routine for oil control that includes using a salicylic acid cleanser, using oil-free primer and blotting oil through the day with specialized tissues or wipes.
Exfoliating is essential in a beauty routine as it helps to promote skin regeneration. Try exfoliating at least once or twice every week, using microderm products that are not abrasive. Avoid scrubbing, and don’t over-exfoliate.
Buying The Right Acne Products
When you experience breakouts, try following this approach: Cleansing, toning, and applying a medicated gel. When it comes to tween natural skin care, don’t fall for overpriced brands that promise results that sound too good to be accurate and instead keep it simple.
Avoid Sharing Makeup

Keeping Hands Clean
One way in promoting healthy skin and protecting it cross-contamination of dirt and bacteria is by washing your hands before doing your makeup or touching your face. Also, clean other devices that touch your skin frequently, such as your cell phone.
Using Spray Hair Products
If you notice acne breakouts generally forming around your hairline or other areas where your hair touches your skin, it may be your hair products that are the problem. Consider using spray products instead, which are less likely in causing breakouts.
Using sunblock can help with keeping acne breakouts from going dark. Choose an oil-free Korean sunscreen and apply cosmetic products like a liquid foundation that is containing sunscreen.
Avoiding Tanning Beds
It is better to choose a self-tanner to give you a healthy bronze glow since sun tanning, and tanning beds can give you early wrinkles and increase the risk of skin cancer when you’re older.
Talking To A Dermatologist
Booking a consultation with a dermatologist about your acne can make a substantial difference, particularly if you have severe and painful acne that leaves scars. They can remain for a lifetime. A dermatologist can prescribe acne medications and cleansers that can clear your skin more effectively and quicker than standard over-the-counter products.
