How To Treat Acne And Dry Skin

Suffering from dry skin and acne? Try these tips for a flawless complexion

Not many people know that acne and dry skin can occur at the same time. It is a general assumption that people with acne have oily skin, and that people with dry skin do not experience acne, but this could not be further from the truth. Acne blemishes form due to a variety of factors. If you are using products that are drying your skin up and you are not properly exfoliating and cleansing your skin, chances are that excess dead skin cells have accumulated on your skin. These excess cells mix with the sebum in your pores, resulting in acne and dry skin. For starters, you may want to try using an acne medication that is not so drying on your skin.

One of the best things that you do to help your acne and dry skin is to apply moisturizer daily. This will help improve the appearance of your skin and prevent dryness, but be careful to avoid moisturizers with pore clogging ingredients. To avoid breakouts, look for products that are oil free and non comedogenic. Apply twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, preferable after cleansing. Also, be sure to exfoliate your skin one to two times a week in order to get rid of those excess skin cells, and make sure to drink plenty of water and eat foods that nourish and hydrate your skin.

A visit to the dermathologist is a must in order to know exactly what type of skin we have and what it needs exactly.
