For oily/acne-prone skin, you can adjust the level of hormones in the body by adjusting diet and living habits, and other details of life to avoid excessive sebum secretion by the sebaceous glands. In addition, a correct skincare concept should be formed.
The 4 top methods are as follows
1. Wash your face, don’t overdo it
The root cause of acne is the proliferation of keratinocytes in the sebaceous ducts of the hair follicles, which block the ducts and prevent the sebum from being discharged, forming acne visible to the naked eye. Washing your face can help remove the proliferated keratin and reduce the clogging of the ducts. But it should be noted that:
Don't wash your face too often. It is enough to wash your face 2 to 3 times a day (morning, evening, and after exercise). Washing your face too frequently can damage the skin barrier and sometimes cause increased sebaceous gland sebum secretion and aggravate acne;
The temperature of the water should be moderate, 32-40 ℃ is better, too cold water temperature will cause the pores to shrink, which is not conducive to removing the hair follicle cutin, and overheating will damage the skin barrier;
Don't rub hard, and try not to use facial cleansers containing scrub particles. Although it can temporarily remove hair follicles, it can easily cause skin damage if you can't grasp it. In the long run, it increases the risk of pigmentation after acne inflammation.
Especially for skin with inflammatory acne, it is not recommended to use cleansing products with too much foam and strong cleaning power
Many acne-prone girls always feel that they have oily skin, and are always desperate to "remove oil." As everyone knows, mild moisturizing is more important than removing grease.
After cleansing, the lipid on the skin surface is reduced, and the sebaceous glands will secrete more oil by this stimulation. If you don't pay attention to moisturizing, the acne will grow more and more serious. The ideal moisturizer should have the functions of reducing the secretion of the skin glands, anti-inflammatory, and repairing the skin barrier.
3. Sun protection
Ultraviolet rays tend to thicken the stratum corneum and aggravate the degree of acne. Therefore, acne-prone skin should pay more attention to daily isolation and sun protection. Try to choose the isolation that is light and thin, has strong air permeability, and is labeled "Non-acne-causing formula" or "Non-clogging pore formula". Sunscreen products.
One is to avoid sun-induced hyperpigmentation and leaving unsightly acne marks; the other is that commonly used drugs for treating acne such as tretinoin preparations and doxycycline often aggravate skin irritation and even allergies under the sun.
4. Clear pores, anti-inflammatory, and sterilized
Choosing products with pore-clearing ingredients is the key to preventing acne. If there is an inflammatory reaction, you can also choose some natural anti-acne soap or creams such as turmeric soap with anti-inflammatory ingredients.
