Learn how to treat comedonal acne

Many people suffer from comedonal acne, which occurs when the hair follicle below the surface of skin becomes clogged with bacteria, dirt and dead skin cells, resulting in an inflamed bump. First off, be sure to wash face with a mild cleanser twice a day. If you over wash, you could irritate your skin and cause further breakouts. Be sure to wash your face after you workout or sweat in order to remove dirt and bacteria. Read 18 Best Face Cleansers for a list of recommended cleansers for your face. In order to better treat comedonal acne, apply an over the counter topical product such as benzoyl peroxide to inflammations.

In order to prevent comedonal acne from occurring, make sure that you use oil free and non comedogenic products that do not contain pore clogging ingredients. Also exercise caution when using hair gels and other hair products as these also have the potential to clog pores. You may also want to consider using a topical retinoid such as retina, but consult your dermatologist first to see what he or she recommends.
