Clear Skin Tips

by | Aug 26, 2014 | Healthy Living

Clear Skin Tips from Britney, PA-C, our new derm specialist:

  1. To prevent scars, do not pop, squeeze, or pick at acne; seek treatment early for acne that does not respond to over-the-counter medications.
  2. Gently wash affected areas twice a day with mild soap and warm water. Vigorous washing and scrubbing can irritate your skin and make acne worse.
  3. Use noncomedogenic (does not clog pores) cosmetics and toiletries.
  4. Use oil-free cosmetics and sunscreens.
  5. Avoid alcohol-based astringents, which strip your skin of natural moisture.
  6. Use medication as directed and allow enough time for acne products to take effect, which might be six to eight weeks.
