Facial skin care isn’t just about the type of skin care products you use, it also has to do with the steps in your current skin care routine. Not every person is the same when it comes to using facial skin care products, but there are steps you can take to ensure that your skin stays clear of embarrassing blemishes. According to dermatologist Dr. Ramzi Saad of the South Shore Skincare Center, even though people have different types and severities of acne, there are certain things that everybody should be doing for the best skin care for acne.
Teens and young adults suffering from acne often turn to the drying effects of the sun to help clear up their skin. When you are used to an oily complexion and breakouts getting a tanned face can feel good temporarily. As we now know, such thinking and practice is not only counterproductive, but dangerous! The temporary “dry” you may experience leads to permanent damage at the cellular level, setting you up for premature aging and the potential for skin cancer! The top layer of skin is designed to be a barrier to keep bacteria out and moisture in. When that layer is damaged more oil is produced as a protective measure, the dead skin clogs your pores and eventually your breakout is worse, and you’ve put yourself at risk for skin cancer.
